Hello all, im looking to use my PC as a gaming machine from now on so it will be sitting next to my tele, which means the haf-x is a bit too big and unsightly for that now unfortunately, so im looking to move to a nice looking mAtx case but I was wondering if there are any major downsides to it? I only have a single GPU and I will not be going SLI so the size internally shouldn't be an issue other than it being a bit more cramped, but other than that is there much to look out for? any advice would be appreciated, thank you :)

That is a possibility too but my knowledge of ITX isn't too big, is there feature parity with bigger motherboards? other than being smaller of course :)

I just went through the same thing myself, had to swap my HAF-X for something smaller because my PC was moving rooms.

In the end I bought a 450D which is much smaller than the HAF-X was. I did think about mATX but in the end I was happy with the reduction in case size and still being able to use an ATX motherboard.
