Go Small or Go Home

posted in: Editorials & Features | 0

My current PC utilizes a Micro-ATX in an Antec Mini P180. It’s not the smallest Micro ATX case on the market but it’s a stepping stone down to the smaller and more interesting Mini-ITX form factor.

I’m a fan of small PCs that pack a punch and with the reduction of power consumption and heat output being all the rage these days, my dream of a small, quiet and powerful PC is a real possibility.

I’ve been eying two cases for these hypothetical builds: the SilverStone FT03 Mini and the BitFenix Prodigy. The Silverstone is in the higher end of my price spectrum at $140 CAD while the Prodigy sits below the $100 mark at around $80 CAD.

Both look very nice and if I continue looking up prices, I’ll soon find myself researching Mini ITX motherboards and we cannot have that — it’s a slippery slope from there.
