Hey there,
looking for a micro atx case as says in the title, details down below on what I need

Current Rig,
CPU: Athlon X4 750K (stock cooler, Planning to upgrade to H60)
Mobo: MSI A55M P33
RAM: 8GB
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 770
PSU: Corsair CX750M
Current case: Zalman ZM T2

Approximate Purchase Date: Mid March

Budget Range: >€120 Excl P&P

System Usage: Gaming

Parts to Upgrade: Case

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: overclockers.co.uk, hardwareversand.de

Location: Ireland

Additional Comments: Needs to have window, and must be small, portable and "aesthetically pleasing"

Why Are You Upgrading: Current case has terrible cooling

Edit: I was wondering if Xigmatek Aquila or Aerocool Dead Silence would be a good choice?

Thanks in advance

a lot of the cases like the r200 and bitfenex cases now let you buy side window panels for there cases.

Yes but I'm trying to find one that is small and portable (Can't find a wide windowed version of Prodigy M)

The Aerocool DS Cube Black Edition Silent Cube looks perfect for your needs.
Nice looking case!

I was looking at that case but would it be better than the Xigmatek aquila?


Nice looking case too!
Either one would be fine.
Cases are a personal preference.
The Xiggy only comes with one fan.
The DS comes with a 200 in the front and a 120 exhaust.
The Xiggy has usb/audio ports on the side(not my preference)
The DS has all case controls/ports on top(I prefer that) plus two interchangeable top panels.
I prefer the DS personally but that's your call.

Good points! The DS does seem to be the better choice in terms of cooling (and not to mention the colours!) thanks for the help!
