Hello,

I'm looking to build a new system from scratch capable of 1440p gaming, preferably with a RTX2080 and room for upgrading later on.

My budget is in the $3.5k - $4k range, but my main constriction is that the case needs to be able to fit through a 180mm wide by 500mm high opening in my desk (it'll fit even the deepest of cases though). There are ventilation holes in the side of the desk cupboard for the PC, so air cooling is fine, but a better cooling option would be preferred. As the computer will be out of sight, I have no need for fancy RGB lighting or a pleasant looking case, so anything that gets the job done in terms of internals. You have a number of pre-builts that fit the specs, I'm just not sure about the case dimensions for their cases, so if any of those fit the bill I'd happily consider one of those as well.

Thank you!

Afternoon Carlus,


I've been looking through our available cases and it's seemingly impossible to get a full sized ATX case with the width under 180mm.


The closest i could find was the Inwin 303 which is 188mm, would this have any chance of fitting in?


If so it would be ideal as it offers a fair bit more cooling as opposed to a smaller ITX case.

I'm fairly sure I could shave a few mm off with a block plane to fit 188mm. The product page has it at 215mm wide though?

*Edit* looking at the desk again, I could fit a 215mm wide case in by going through the back panel of the desk. If there aren't any that could fit, then it's not the end of the world, would just need to go between a wall and the side of the desk, so would need cooling to suit. Also forgot, it would need WiFi.
Thanks!

Afternoon Carolus,


My apologies that was suppose to be the 301 the M-atx version, if you can fit 215mm most cases can fit within that space :)


Please have a look over the below quote and let me know your thoughts/ if you would like to make any changes.
