Default Micro-ATX Cases - Shoebox Showdown

Even though micro-ATX motherboards have been in rather widespread use for a while now, the small form factor PC is still relatively new to most people. Show an average PC user a no-holds-barred system roughly the size of a bowling ball and they will most likely be impressed... even if they already know about Mac Minis and Shuttle PCs. This is not to say that the market isn't growing, however. Indeed the computer industry as a whole will probably never cease to try to miniaturize even the most powerful of machines, even if there are already computers smaller than a C battery.

the Antec Aria is an "old" case, several years on the market already, I have it here, it's compact, can hold enough HDD drives (3) and fit most of the medium size VGA cards. You are limited in choices for CPU cooling though, as the PSU sits over the CPU socket area.
