This review is from: Fractal Design Node 304 FD-CA-NODE-304-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case Pros: Small, stylish, and, paired with the right components, it runs almost completely silently.

Really, the Fractal Silent Series fans are all but noiseless. I built this system with a fanless PSU, and a Noctua NH-L9a CPU cooler, and with the fans set at medium speed (the case has a built-in three speed fan controller), it is noiseless. Even on high speed, you barely hear a thing. Cons: The drive bays, while being a creative, even brilliant, solution to the problem of building in such a small space, are still kind of hinky. If you're going to use a longish GPU, then make sure your PSU is short enough to accomodate the back of the GPU.

Not really "cons," but read the other area below for the downsides of building in these small boxes. BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Tower Arctic White Computer Case. Meticulously crafted and beautifully engineered, Prodigy redefines the Mini-ITX chassis.

5 Best Mini-ITX Chassis for A Petite Gaming and HTPC Build

After dem panic feels then I quickly realized I was wrong again. Upon unboxing the Inwin 901, I gotta admit –this. is. one of the. tallest, heaviest, most interesting design, best looking mITX case I ever lay my eyes on. You see, both sides panels are 100% made of beautiful tempered glass with a dark tint that blend nicely with the rest of the aluminum chassis.

First thing came to mind was, goddamn this thing must be a finger print magnet. Then as usual, I was wrong again. Anyway, as I continue to poking it, touching it, hugging it, playing it with both hands, etc…I could barely see any marks or residuals on the glass. Now with that off my chest, I reckon the rest of the case are bundled with such intelligent designs. Gallery PROs Pure, elegant, attractive, lavish design.

This thing is literally smaller than most ITX cases (looking at your Prodigy). -I've fit Phanteks- PH-TC14PE, Cryorig R1 and a handful of other huge dual tower Heatsinks in the SG10 without issue. It's real CPU cooler height limit is closer to 170mm. Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power will not fit! -Will accommodate basically any size graphics card, just be careful with cards like GTX 780 Classy which is extra wide, it will interfere with your side fan mounting options.

-The best airflow setup I've found is to flip the top AP181 to exhaust, block the 80mm fan slot opening from the inside and retain either the single 120mm AP121 that comes with the cases side panel or use 2 92mm's. -Another tip, use the PSU extension cable to create a wall/duct between it's edge so that air only escapes outside.
