This is good value if you don't mind Amazon Warehouse - Gigabyte Z87N-WIFI @ £46.60.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2014/01/10/cooler-master-elite-110-mini-itx-case-launc/1 for a preview, and the 120 and 130 are also reviewed on that site.

think i'd perfer the 130 myself for a lil extra room, this seems awful tiny with a full-sized psu having all the hot stuff crammed underneath it. great price though.

I have one of these sitting in the cupboard still in its box - that's how good I found it

others might like the very small cube design but I hated it. Got a Fractal Design Node 304 in the end and its so much better designed :)

if anyone wants to collect it from near Stevenage you can have it for 15 quid

the fractal allows for all the HDD's to be placed in the same area of the case, meaning routing of cables if you have more than two HDD's is not a PITA

This case does not have good airflow and a micro atx case is going to be much much larger.

Just dropping my 2p in here.

Fractal Design are top quality cases, and the cust support is excellent.

Not 'acceptable' no, the general rule is about £500

Thanks, just curious if it's worth considering a PC (just the box) over PS4 for similar budgets.

Any experience with PC parts from there? I'm sceptical, but that price is fantastic.

Yeah, this is a case that's stranded in the middle. At 15L it's very large by normal Mini-ITX standards while being somewhat small for those looking to stick a 500W+ system in.

Budget Mini-ITX motherboards are down to ~£10 more expensive than their MicroATX counterparts and everything else in a Mini-ITX case this large is standard full sized components. So assuming you find a £300 gaming computer to be acceptable (and it certainly wouldn't be hopeless) then the £10 extra it costs to use this case is probably something you could squeeze in somewhere.

Tomshardware had a great example build of a mini-itx system. In the best of 2014 series where you vote for best custom builds

I see stuff like this and am tempted to build a new computer, even though my Quad Xeon (Core2 Duo era) still works great :3

I like how even a YouTube channel run by computer geeks can't set the clock on an oven.

If you consider a GTX 750i Ti + Pentium G3258 (LGA 1150) @ 4GHz+ acceptable then you can build a mITX gaming system for ~£300 excluding Windows.
This is based on some recent purchases I made for a Gigabyte Z87N-WIFI + Pentium G3258 along with current or very recent deals for the other components and includes buying second hand from CEX the RAM (4GB 1600) and CPU. Everything else new except for the motherboard which was Amazon Warehouse.

Could i use case this to build a cheap vmware server

I've never build a computer before so i'm planning to build one as a project.

Any constructive advice would be appreciated

Yes if you are crafty and purchase second hand components. I do it all the time. Get a great PC for half the price. Any problems then you purchase that particular component again and you still have saved money.

For good airflow I'd go for the Silverstone Temjin case. I’ve built three systems for Australian conditions (add another 20-40 degrees ambient to what you have here now) based on the Silverstone Temjin TJ-08e (http://silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=303&area=en) which is a *brilliant* piece of kit. It has things in reverse (board mounts on the other side) which is an unusual approach and works outstandingly well.
The only thing I found that made me apprehensive was the proximity of the power supply to the edge of the board making some card layouts tight (for multi-graphics cards) but that’s a lot to ask for a micro-ATX case and board unless the board has those slots further down to the centre of the board. Airflow was absolutely superb – could take the biggest of video cards in length too, all in a very compact and non-blingy case design. It has a huge fan at the front that just keeps everything happy, I found its dust pickup was surprisingly low (and it has an easily cleaned filter that doesn’t require case removal) and the noise from it was surprisingly low too. I built two with the Corsair H60 water cooling system and the 3rd with just standard Intel sink and all were fantastic; some were used in truly awful dirty environments too (one system went into a house that had dog hair all around the living room and I don’t think the living room had been cleaned since they bought their furniture in the 1950’s).

Solid build, not at all expensive and quality/finish where it was actually useful and necessarily; not excessively heavy either. That's another thing about the bigger brother to the OP's case here; the Coolmaster 120, it's amazingly light (I built an ESXi xeon server in one of those, works a treat).

I've already commented but I've been ' researching' since. What Motherboard could I use that would support VMware esxi 5.5 must support at least 16gb

For that configuration I used an Intel board - it was a mini-ITX board, I used a standard E3 Xeon chip (E3-1220v2) and I paired it with 8gig of ram (ECC) as it came with the board when I bought it but that easily takes 16gig. The contemporary equivalent of that spec I believe is the v3 of that chip, you can pair it with non-ECC ram on that configuration which I believe is cheaper. I paired it with a gold standard PSU (360w), it has three spinner HDDs and and SSD running the core VMs, swap, boot, etc. (240gig). The board has two onboard Broadcom NICs, at time of build ESXi ran one NIC out of the box but you can get the 2nd one going without too much drama I'm told. The updated version of this board is a little better configured (it takes the v3 chip) so you should be better off with that; one advantage of this config is that it works out of the box, there's no strange measure required to get it running out of the box; and upgrades are well supported down the track, that's worth it in my experience.

What I didn't find was a Xeon board that had more than 2 DIMM sockets, not in that size at least; going up to 32gig would require 2x16's (I'm not sure if they're widely available or cost effective yet, it's bout a year since I built mine).

One interesting thing with this - idle power draw at the wall for that system with 3 HDDs, SSD, full power Xeon, etc. was only about 60w at the wall (I measured it with a power socket meter) and this jumped to around 100w or there abouts under load. I was really surprised at that; it replaced an HP Microserver N36L which was doing the same thing hosting some small VM guests. The Xeon was rather powerful so it doesn't spike/peak very often at all, it's idle far more of the time than the little Athon X2 that the N36L had so I think this led to lower overall power consumption in that configuration; I didn't do comprehensive testing though.

I have this and the 130.

Beyond taking me ages to find the perfect GPU and missing a optical drive (all games are pretty much Steam now anyway)... I've found this case to be freaking awesome.
Make sure you use a modular PSU and forget overclocking (even with watercooling support).

Sure the 130 is a flexible beast, but this makes an adorable gaming rig!

Is this a decent brand of PSU? Don't want to fry my new GFX haha
