    Yeah pretty much what I said On paper a great idea, in practice it isn't working to the effect it should.

    Re: advice small case + low noise pc?

    Is that motherboard on the Asus not standard layout?

    While the back of it looks standard mATX it looks longer than a normal mATX and the cpu set more towards the front than the back.

    Hang on, it's upside down as well. Like the old dell ones

    Has anyone had any exerience of the Aplus Blockbuster?

    This one.

    That means the Lian Li PC-V350B is a no go as the dvd drivers eject to the right.

    Has anyone had any exerience of the Aplus Blockbuster? seems ok for a low cost option.
    The Lian-Li V350 has 5.25" openings on left and right side of the case. So you can still have it against a wall.

    Quote from site:
    PC-V350's access of 5.25" open to the left or right side of the chassis, and there are two internal 3.5" HDDs space

    Left picture
    Right picture

    No idea if it's a quiet case, as some Lian-Li's get criticised for the aluminium panels rattling.

    The Silverstone TJ-08 is steel panel, and just aluminium front.

    if you want to reduce the power a GPU is using you can always decrease the 2D clock speeds using something like rivatuner which is also good for slowing any fans down
