    PC case not to big for a 1 loop watercooling + 5970 ?

    I have a Mountain Mods UFO case which to be honest is great but far to big and overpowers my flat!

    Looking to build something much smaller. Does a case come to mind ?

    A05n, can mod the lid and fit a 3x120mm rad.

    Take out the hdd cage and the 5970 should fit.

    It'll all be a bit tight, but I don't think you get much smaller without a lot more effort.

    Depends on how small you are after, I would expect a NZXT Vulcan to hold a single loop and a 5970 with some careful routing without the side panel but thats a tiny matx case lol.
