Can anyone recommend a good small (as small as possible) case for a Sam 460ex?

If you don’t use a gfx card or PCIe card every FlexCase will do, otherwise check if the gfx card has enough space in the case.
I did use a Coolermaster N300 with a Radeon 7750, SSD and CD-Rom drive but it s not the smallest you can get.

I'm happy to use it without any cards in place.

But I can't find many / any flex cases on the market. Amazon, ebay, even alibaba I can't find any. Only miniITX cases that don't fit or micro atx ones that are way too big.

I recently moved mine into this case:

https://aerocool.io/product/qs-180/

I do have a graphics card and a SATA card in it plus a 3,5" HDD and a 2,5" SSD and a DVD burner, and this was the smallest I could find, with a height small enough to fit into the new bookcase I was moving the machine into.

I like it, although I may look for a more silent case fan at some point.

Best regards,

Niels

A possible candidate:

Cooler Master Elite 110

It's about $50 US.

An a good desktop case? I need a new case for my Sam460ex, because I borrowed my Sam to a bad person and he gave me back with the case damaged and dirty.
And I want put my Sam460ex in a desktop case to put under the monitor.

I've bought this one for my Sam440ep-Flex:

https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=283&area=en

But you need to get a low-profile graphics card.

Stephen Jones has just announced a mini A3000 style case in black or white, which looks pretty cool.

Yeah I'm literally watching the video now. Waiting to hear from him if it's going to support 460ex.

Also, cool username dude.

@mobileconnect2

Flex ATX motherboards are uncommon so you are unlikely to find a specific case or even one being advertised as compatible. Any Micro ATX should suffice since Flex ATX boards are smaller and also use a subset of the Micro ATX mounting points.

Unless you can track down a second hand Hiper Media Chassis you won't find anything compatible with the Sam460 that is much smaller than the Silverstone case Trixie linked to.

There is the Streacom ST-FC5B or ST-FC5S that has similar dimensions to the Hiper Media Chassis but the price is upwards of £200 without a PSU

@Rob

Those are still huge. I have however found a case suitable that is about 3/4 the size of those.
