Need help finding a small case

#1shuppet_is_dumbPosted 12/21/2013 10:58:29 AM(edited)
I'm building my first pc, and I'd like to find the smallest possible case that would still fit a GTX 780ti (something like the case on these pcs http://www.digitalstormonline.com/bolt.asp ). This is because I'd like it fit on a space that's about 4.9 inches wide. Any reccomendations?

Also, something that's confusing me is the difference between HTPC and other types of towers. Could someone please enlighten me? Would this (http://www.xionusa.com/Product-case-XON-720P_BK.asp ) case work for what I need?

That case looks like it's only going to fit half height cards which the 780ti most definitely isn't. I have pretty serious doubts that you'll be able to find a case that thin that will still accept a full height, double width, 10+ inch graphics card. there's a handful of prebuilts that offer this but I've never seen a consumer case like that.

I found one, the ASRock M8. It's $550 but it includes the case itself, a semi-proprietary mobo (obviously designed for that case but nothing stopping you from reusing it later), a 450w PSU, a disc drive, and all the cables you would need which were sized to fit the case. I'm actually surprised at how much fits in it, you can use all 6 of the sata ports if you need that many drives (5 plus the disc). The review I watched said that they didn't recommend using a 780 with revision 1 of that kit but that ASRock said unofficially it would work with revision 2 (which is all that's available now). I'm not sure about a 780ti but I wouldn't expect to do any overclocking since heat seems to be an issue with this case, not that you'd have much power to spare anyway.

The Asrock M8 or EVGA Hadron Air. Both are overpriced (M8 especially) but if you want a small form factor PC, those are the way to go.

That helps a lot. Thank you very much

EVGA Hadron Air. A downside to this case is the price imo. And the case supports to 11" graphics cards, so I 'm sure a Titan will fit.
