Micro ATX users here!

  • Regarding Bitfenix Aegis ... I think ok siya if you plan to fully watercool your system.

    Pero if you are just using aircooling there are smaller and more compact Micro-ATX cases available. At that size mas prefer ko na mag compact ATX case like NZXT S340 :-)

    Below is a size comparison. Take note of the height and depth of the case:

    Bitfenix Aegis (WxHxD) = 202mm x 461mm x 467mm
    Fractal Define Mini (WxHxD) = 210mm x 395mm x 490mm
    Fractal Arc Mini R2 (WxHxD) = 210mm x 405mm x 484mm
    Corsair Obsidian 350D (WxHxD) = 210mm x 440mm x 450mm
    NZXT Source 340 (WxHxD) = 200mm x 445mm x 432mm

    If you can extend, i suggest get the PS07B. maganda yan. kung kaya pa extend further, tapos kung gusto mo ng SFF na mATX case, nandyan ang SG09/SG10.
  • @dyaems

    thanks, ok sana ung ps07b kaso biglang nawala ung sale. hehe sayang.

    siguro hanap nalang ako iba, then i-rotate ko nalang yung PSU.

    ok lang naman siguro noh?
  • ^

    wala naman problema kahit i-rotate mo yung PSU pag nasa bottom mount, ang problema kung mag fit padin yung screws haha.. siguro kahit 2 screws lang mag fit OK na hehe

    magkano ba yung PS07 na naka sale dati? nakalimutan ko na e
  • @sleepygeepy

    honga, kung sa ganyan size dapat maganda pricing nyan aegis. ako nga napapaisip mag S340 or kung dagdagan yun budget H440 kahit naka matx ako ngayon. else, antay mode pa din ako sa pandora.
  • ^

    S340 na lang men, ayos yun. Nakapagbuild ako nun sa friend ko nakakatuwa mag build dun haha, at wala ako naging problema.

    Mukha lang malaki yung S340, mas maliit pa nga siya sa 350D eh, for an ATX case. 41.5L vs 38L! xD

    EDIT: Speaking of ATX case, ang Jonsbo RM1 ay 21L ATX case, maliit pa sa SG10 volume-wise which has 23L.

    Wag lang tularan yung demo pic haha, at sorry sa OT!

  • ^ haha oo nga tingin ko nga sa S340 parang poor man's H440, pero not really knoocking it down ha, i mean it as a compliment kahit pangit pakinggan. looks good naman din sya, monolithic ang dating. mahihirapan talaga ako magdecide for aegis kung ganyan - bang for the buck S340, tapos splurge lang ng konti H440 na. yun size kasi talaga e.
  • ^

    size ng ano?

    isa pang maganda sa S340 ay "sarado" siya, so less dust haha. hinde literal na sarado ha!

    as sleepygeepy said, which i agree as well, maganda yung Aegis kung mag custom loop ka dahil ang ganda ng radiator options nya. wala yan difference kung AIO lang or something, with the exception of Swiftech AIOs.

    Actually impressed ako sa NZXT S340 case. For the price maganda ang features niya and bihira ka makahanap na stylish case (with window and PSU cover) at that price range. Parang mas maganda tuloy mag recommend ng ATX build just because of that case. Ganda pa ng direct airflow ng front fans niya. Cooling is actually better than H440 in some reviews I've read :-)

    Only issue lang niya is the cheap bottom mounted filter and easily scratchable window. Sana ginawa din ni NZXT na yung paint scheme is matte instead of glossy. Kung gumawa si NZXT ng Micro-ATX version or Mini-iTX version of that case with the same layout that would be nice :-)

    Commercial Lang:
    In this video review from Hardware Canucks you can see the size comparison between NZXT S340 and the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Micro-ATX case. Goes to show how relatively compact the NZXT S340 is for an ATX case :-)

  • ^ size ng aegis, medyo deal breaker sya for me.
  • ^

    ah gusto mo ng maliit? meron naman SG10 sa IFS ;)
  • @sleepygeepy

    oo mga ganyan itsura type ko e, yun pang minimalist. tsaka gusto ko din sa S340 - PSU shroud! kaya mukha ok pa din tignan ang matx board sa S340 dahil dito.

    Mas gusto ko yung Jonsbo! ^_^
  • @dyaems

    oo, nalalakihan pa din ako sa phenom m ko e. actually maliit kung sa maliit yun gusto ko mga tipong yang SG10 o kaya yun FT03 (yun pandora na din).

    pero isa ko din tinitignan e ATX case na since yun mga gusto ko ngayong magaganda looks andun (H440 especially), in preparation na din sakaling di na ako mag matx sa next build ko (probably 2 years pa earliest).
  • oo ok yan mga jonsbo haha. mga aluminum body, and swak sa type ko yun looks.
  • @ joeyboy

    yung pandora parang flimsy ang dating nung napanood ko yung linus overview nya.


    @ sleepygeepy

    check ka sa IFS 1-2 weeks from now ;)
  • yung pandora parang flimsy ang dating nung napanood ko yung linus overview nya.


    ^^
    oo ang pangit nun side panels nya e parang pop in lang. gusto ko kasi itsura nya tsaka yun icon display na meron naman sa aegis. yun nga lang di ko kasing gusto yun looks ng aegis (maganda naman sya, mas gusto ko lang pandora).

    check ka sa IFS 1-2 weeks from now ;)


    ako din magcheck haha yun W2 parang yun NCase M1 itsura, ATX nga lang.
  • Agree din ako sa BitFenix Aegis. Hindi naman ako nagbabalak magwatercool. Masyadong overkill na para sa akin.

    And that NZXT S340! I love the Black/Blue variant! Sayang wala sa atin.
