    Re: New Gaming Case wanted...?

    Nope, best you can do is this

    Lian Li PC-A05B Aluminium Midi-Tower - Black

    Micro Tower which accomodates full ATX motherboards and PSU's.

    I think I read somewhere that if you modified this
    Lian-Li V350B Aluminium Mini-Tower - Black

    you could, but doesn't seem worth it. Micro towers make far more sense in terms of cooling and they really are quite tiny, got a silverstone TJ-08 myself.

    Re: New Gaming Case wanted...?

    The nzxt rouge is certainly the best cube gaming case. 5 x 120mm and massive height clearnance for the big HSF's makes it perfect.

    Sell your P5K and get an G33/G35 based intel board, it will clock your Q6600 back to 3.0GHz no problem

    ATX cube cases do exist but they tend to be on the expensive side. Heres the main ones i know of:

    Brilliant mountain mods cases:
    MountainMods.com-Computer Cases-U2-UFO

    Yeong Yang 0221:
    YeongYang -- Professional manufacturer of computer case
    DCCS : Cases

    Lian Li PC343B:
    KustomPCs.co.uk - Lian Li PC343B Server Cube Case

    Not sure this is what you are looking for but i suppose it is technically a cube case, Thermaltake Mozart TX:

    I'm not sure they are quite in the spirit of a gaming cube

    Re: New Gaming Case wanted...?

    Maybe not, but they are the closest you can get to ATX cube cases. Its not surprising there arent many cos they tend to be on the huge side. I like the look of the yeong yang, with a bit of customisation id imagine you could end up with a pretty sweet case.

    Worst case scenario..

    £50 for the case (if it comes with the PSU and is it good condition, might be worth selling on the forum)

    £65 for the motherboard but I would ask for more and it will probably sell better on ebay than on the forums.

    Posted on your mobo thread to lol

    I think you need 100 posts to sell on here but ebay should be good for the mobo at least.

    I have a similar issue myself - but have decided to look into a Sugo (microATX) case... so long as it'll fit on my desk that is!

    Now all I need to decide is a nice ATI based mobo

    Which SUGO version? I just bought the SUGO SG02. Its really compact, not great if always upgrading/swapping components. But then I wanted a SFF case I can transport from uni - home.

    I would hardly consider the NZXT Rogue a SFF bearing in mind the size of the thing.
