Nr200p research and build

Let’s starting with the PC cases. There are many form factors driven by a combination of mother board, graphic card(s), memory slots and other conectivity options. However, it’s easier starting from mother board, and then looking for case options:

  • Mini-ITX (Mini-ITX) 6.7-inch x 6.7-inch or 170mm x 170mm
  • Micro-ATX (M-ATX) 9.6-inch x 9.6-inch or 244mm x 244mm
  • ATX 12-inch x 9.6-inch or 305mm x 244mm
  • Extended ATX (E-ATX) 12-inch x 13-inch or 305mm x 330mm

I intented to build a small case PC, thus Mini-ITX seems to be the right choice - expecting small mobo (aka motherboard) will drive the design of smaller case form factors.

Here are some popular mini-ITX cases worth mentioning:
