ATX but smaller Length Case shortage

  Giggle n' Bits 14:54 30 Oct 2006

Ok, you love this one. I am trying to source a ATX case which measures preferably 14" from back to front, think the online case decriptions call it lenght or long.

I was going to get a Chieftech Micro ATX case but this could be a problem as this requires a Micro ATX PSU which is needed at a minimum of 400w and there really steep.

So can or does anyone know of a online source for a case which is less than prefably close to 14" long must be less than say 17" long.

Don't mind paying extra but ATX factor not Micro ATX as also motherboard is ATX.

tape measures needed here.

Bit doubtful whether these can or do exist.

An ATX case is intended to contain an ATX motherboard - which is a standard size - and accommodate the other equipment essential to the operation of the board.

I think the only way to go is with a MicroATX board if you must have a small size.

How about a Midi ATX case measuring 14" long from back to front. This would do the job, but I can only find 15", 15.5" and 16" then 18"

You'll find the form factors specifications at:

MicroATX PSU units are very rarely more than around 270-300 watts.

Here's a MicroATX case which is 13.8in deep and comes with a 420w PSU (two others also available):

Should have also said that you could find out who makes the PSU.....:-)

I've discovered the manufacturer is Apevia:

I seen these around but will they take a MicroATX style motherboard ? as the case just looks like a shoe box size.

Further search reveals that Apevia was formerly known as Aspire (hence case name), but no MicroATX PSUs are listed on the website..:-(

I am going to get a Apevia Aka Aspire Cube shoe box thing Tuesday.
Works out well really especially with the PSU with it.

Thanks again Stuartli.
