mITX cases for full sized components (1080Ti, 7700k etc)


Recommended Posts


I am about to start a new build from scratch. Coming from an older Cosmos S case, which is not only huge but also weighs a lot I would like to downscale to a smaller case. Therefore I've been looking at Mini ITX and Micro ATX cases but I've noticed an ongoing trend; 

It seems that many of the mITX cases are quite close to the size of normal mATX mid towers, rendering it quite pointless to go through all the additional difficulty of the smaller build. (Such as the increased difficulty in cable tidying, increased chances of thermal problems etc.) 

Does anyone have any recommendations on a mITX case (preferably with a side window) which can handle full sized components such as a 1080Ti without cooking itself to death but not being the same size as a mATX mid tower? 

If it helps and for reference this is currently my potential build that I'm considering purchasing:


The case I was considering:

GigaByte does make mini ITX versions of their video cards, single fan and slower clock. Mounting space is going to be the biggest issue. Do you have a 1080Ti picked out?

I've got a Fractal Design Node 202 here that has a Xeon in it and a GTX1080Ti, case comes with a riser card so you can fit decent cards in smaller cases.

Over all its not a bad case but being small and light its rigidity leaves a lot to be desired.
