    MicroATX Cases

    I've searched and i've searched but i cant seem to a very wide variety of microatx cases. The only one I have found that I seem to like is the case made by Superflower TTGI model #TT-101
    If any of you have any ideas or microatx cases you like then please by all means suggest them. Thanks

    That is not a Micro ATX case. That is just a smaller midsized tower that takes a full sized ATX motherboard. Directron has a good selection:

    Just be carefull they have a few standard ATX (like the Super Lanboy) and a few Flex ATX case that are even smaller than MicroATX (usually only 1-2 PCI slots and that is it). Also MicroATX cases use a differant shapped power supply and are usually only 150-250w. It might almost be worth it to get a smaller Midsized tower as they can use standard ATX and MicroATX boards and use a normal power supply. Most that ship with PS use 300+ watt ones now a days.

    NewEgg has a few. Just go here and select any of the MicroATX under the size uption for searches along the left hand side:

    They look something like these:

    I just picted pictures to repressent the three major MicroATX formats. The mini tower with the CD mounted horizontal, the mini tower with the CD mounted vertical, and the desktop case. These last two versions are sometimes interchangable.

    As for design it is really up to your tastes. There are a lot to choose from. These are just a few of them from the two sites above:

    For what it's worth, I've used this one with a couple of machines, and I'm not particularly impressed. It's not really bad, just not very good. I'd suggest another one.

    I've actually seen a few reveiws of the Black and yellow one I show above. It is called the Hornet I think and is made by Cheming or something like that. It is supposed to be pretty good for a MicroATX case. Oh and I think that black one in the middle is actually a FlexATX case that I showed.
