    I use those cases for a lot of my projects. They typically list for around $39 but now and then Newegg will bump the price down to $19. I snapped up 4 of them just a few days ago. They are surprisingly well built for the price. I usually install Monotech NuXT and ATX socket 7 motherboards in them for retro builds.

    Another case to watch is this one:

    Newegg bumps this one down to $24 now and then.

    Don't really need it but I bought one anyway. The price is right - come on down!

    I snaggeda Raidmax case 2+ years ago for precisely 12.09$ after the rebate. It's lite, it's a full mid atx tower. And best of all it's black. Actually best of all it was dirt cheap. Now I'm spoiled. 19$ is a lot and I'm feeling the pain. But I did get 1. I actually despise sub atx anything, but a lot of my bargain boards are of that form factor.

    I've got this new Asus Crosshair VI mobo sitting in its box and I'm thinking of building a nice unit for some granny or her grandson and put it on Craigs List here in the metro area. I've got enough stuff laying around including a 500GB M.2. Have to think about the video - maybe a 1080. Just what I need - another project.

    I think it'll fit but if not I got some boards will. The depth is okay at 9.6" but there may be a problem with the width.

    uAtx is 9.6" x 9.6". Don't expect to fit anything larger then that.

    Well, we'll just have to see now won't we. On the plus side I may have a micro board in the stack somewhere.

    you're more then welcome to my address. Any surplus parts can be sent overnight. Or you could load up the camaro and drop them off. It wouldn't take much more then, what, an hour and a half in that rocket? I remember when Terry Yaeger was alive he offered me a literal truck load of old puters, along with the truck! I just had to get out there. I chickened out. To think you could have picked me up.
