    Default Minimalist Mini-Tower from Sharkoon

    Sharkoon expands its range of small cases and introduces two new living room suitable mini-towers.

    The CA-I Mini-ITX PC Case is an elegant aluminum mini-tower in a compact design. Thanks to its elaborate compartmental layout the mini-ITX case offers a surprising amount of space for the installation of components and, in addition, uses conventional ATX power supplies The slightly larger CA-M Micro-ATX PC Case is compatible with micro-ATX as well as mini-ITX, and offers nearly identical features but also the possibility to install up to four expansion cards

    Will need a stock or very low profile cpu cooler. The shape and size kind of limits where it can be placed in a HT setting. Still pretty sleek design.

    The specs say it has 105mm clearance for the CPU cooler, which isn't bad. You can get a Cryorig C1, Noctua NH-L12, Thermolab LP53, Silverstone NT06-PRO, etc in there, so you can actually get some decent cooling.

    Thanks. I missed that spec. That makes it a bit more attractive knowing I could use a worthy cpu cooler.

    Ok, so after reading on their website, I'm confused. It's labeled as "Micro-ATX", but says it's for "Mini-ITX". Are there versions for both? I'm interested in an mATX version if it exists.

    Boy you are digging into the vaults of old post today. lol

    The promo info says that there are two versions. So the answer is both.

    Nice, glad to see that.

    As to old posts, I'm not even looking at the original post dates, lol, just going through the forum and checking things out again, since I rarely get the opportunity to do so these days. This one's less than 3 months old though, so not that decrepit just yet.
