G'day, Embarking on a bit of a downsize project, seeking to expand my knowledge on vertical m-ITX cases. I've done ITX before but had a bit more desk last time and used the Thermaltake Suppressor F1, which I put a glass window in and enjoyed for a time. Currently using a Silverstone RL08 which I've loved, but it encroaches a bit on the new desk arrangement so I'd like to gain back a bit of the RL08's 430mm depth. I've all but settled on a Thermaltake Tower 100 - I like the design, I'm not chasing the absolute lowest cubic volume and it ticks the boxes in footprint. I've also been eyeing the Phanteks Shift 2, but I think the z-height might give me issues with cable length and I don't want to have to extend everything. Considerations which might be relevant: - Machine is custom-looped CPU/GPU with an external self-contained MORA. I don't need radiator/pump/res mounts or have to worry about any clearances except GPU connector block depth really. - I do need to be able to discreetly fit two bulkhead fittings as passthroughs for the water tubes. - I would like at least a single mount for an intake fan for positive pressure, especially if the case is not sealed. - I am not incorporating RGB into the next rebuild, so visibility is of less concern than dust ingress (we get a lot). - I have a 1080Ti, so it needs at least 2-slot GPU compatibility to 280mm. Gen3 riser is fine. - Big ATX PSU compatibility a plus but not a necessity. - I don't want an open-air 'frame' thing. Shortlist: - Thermaltake Tower 100 (it's 280mm square footprint, which is about what I've got to work with) - SSUPD Meshlicious TG (tiny, looks lovely but the dust ingress will be a concern) - G.Skill Z5i (I love it but it's exorbitantly expensive, long to source and a bit big in footprint) - Phanteks Evolv Shift 2 TG (love the looks, but might give me cable issues and be tricky to pass water through) - Jonsbo V11 (a bit tricky to source, but ideal design) I'm aware of a few popular others, but I'm not spending $500 to get a case here - those days are gone. Anyone seen anything about that I'm missing?
