It's very smart, but quite large considering the form factor?
I've been out of the PC world for a few years, but I thought the idea of MicroATX was to build tiny quiet PC's? I can't help but think making a PC with dual GPUs and all those fans is going to sound like a hurricane in a box?
Is there not a compromise on CPU performance and downsizing to these smaller form factors?

Many fans, low RPM, it won't be loud.
That's a really good price for a highly versatile case
They're clearing them all out. I bought one from maplin last month but my Msi 1070 doesn't fit! Gutted

Wow. And thats a 1070. Imagine bigger cards. These pro cases are supposed to be smallest possible while being able to fit the biggest gpu.

Yeah, even some GTX980's don't fit. It's not a length issue, it's height. You get the same problem with some tall CPU coolers. I have this case and love it but the height is limiting.

That's exactly the problem. The gpu was the final piece of the build..... Aaaaaaaaaand, it's all over

My 1080 TI fits perfectly fine in my Corsair Air 240
You just have to be mindful of the height of the case when choosing which brand of graphics card to purchase.

If you buy a small case, then don't consider this when buying the card and buy one with a massive cooler then it obviously won't fit. There are plenty of 1070/1080/1080TI cards that do fit. All the standard Nvidia reference style cards fit, the KFA branded ones all fit, a couple of the Gigabyte and Palit cards fit perfectly fine. Hell, even the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING Graphics card fits perfectly without any issues.

You only run into problems if you get one of the MSI/Gigabyte/EVGA cards that have custom PCBs and tall, oversized coolers.

I fully agree that you can find cards which will fit and so can overcome the issue. However, while reviews often mention the problems of CPU cooler height, they regularly omit graphic card height and so buyers get caught out. It can also mean that you won't be able to use your preferred brand / card.

Tiny is ITX chassis, mATX is middle of road with ATX.
Great case. My MSI 970 was to high but it's close. Googling around I found a lot of people just move the acrylic window to the outside of the cover to give those extra few mm needed. Did the trick for me, but not ideal.
This may be a dumb question, but which of the dimensions is height, width, or depth? This is quite a bit smaller than my fractal R5 define.
Cool a black flux capacitor
plz chaz no

That's probably what I'm confused with.
This case looks surprisingly huge??
Also... you could probably get a nice tempered glass case for just a few coins more...
