    I currently have an Enthoo Primo housing my eATX motherboard and watercooled loop.

    Life was great until I had kids and now need to move the beast to a smaller space. The case is too large and I don't have the budget to build a smaller pc (Plus this one performance wise is still great for my requirements).

    I plan to ditch the case and loop and move to a smaller case air cooled. Has anyone come across a case for this requirement that would work well? I accept that it will still be a midi tower but the smaller the better.

    I require any bay devices and only need space for 2 SSD's & a GFX card (currently 980ti).

    Any thoughts or ideas would be great!

    I am also in search of a case, the Corsair 400C is actually quite small and also fits e-atx motherboard perfectly.

    If you want something even smaller, you could have a look at Cerberus X PC Case.

    There are a couple of cube e-atx cases overclockers sell a Corsair one.

    There is another that I have it's called a cooltek jonsbo w2 but just done a quick Google and it seems to be discontinued now.

    It's a compact case but cooling does suffer for it. If you have hot components it becomes quite a hot box as there just isn't enough fans to extract the heart away.

    Phanteks Pro M will fit an EATX. At least it did when I had my X99 Asrock Extreme 11.

    i think there's a grey area between ATX and EATX i have just put and EATX board in Bitfenix Nova case.. doesnt the case just have to have the 3rd line of stand offs?

    Is the board you are using the full 13.5" depth of 'proper' EATX?
