    Thermaltake Element Q

    Thermaltake have a new mini ITX case called the Element Q.

    Retail price is around USD59. It's basically a clone of the Apex MI-008, a review of that case can be found on silentpcreview.

    It's not a bad case especially if you want to use a 5.25" optical drive, but with only a 4cm height clearance for the cpu heatsink, it seriously limits your choice of board (although perfect for an Atom build). But the review suggests you could remove the psu entirely, replace it with a picopsu and install a decent hsf in its place which is also a great idea.

    Could see me painting the red stripe but other than that it's a lovely looking thing

    As you say I would probably use it for an Atom build, if you want a performance Mini ITX solution I think there are better options for silverstone and such like.
