    Anybody know of any nice presentable cases for mATX or ATX boards.
    Focus also being of small size.

    Cerberus
    Like an ncase m1, but not currently in production :(

    Bullet BH4 mATX Case - Customizable
    And bh7 for ATX are possibles.

    Would not mind 1 or 2 spots for 3.5" otherwise just looking for 2.5" mounting for half a dozen or so drives.

    Anybody know of anything nice ?

    That's suitably tiny :)
    But I need to do some more research on cooling or maybe you know, can a 2u supermicro active heatsink work and is there otherwise enough airflow ?
    Looking to cool something as large as E5-2680v4

    I did see the case s like 'phanteks enthoo evolv matx' that look to have some serious cooling, tidy looking (but I hate and don't need windows), and not too massive with the reason being also available locally so no need for stupid shipping charges.

    Hi. I hope you still haven't bought anything. This should fit exactly what you need.

    Says it's mini-itx not mATX.
    Having said that it's certainly a small case that's a Budget option compared to the ncase m1 :)

    Not got a case yes, in desperation I may use 1u for the systems as don't have to be on 24x7 so could make them portable in a rugged rack case (like used for music guys)
    SC515-350 | 1U | Chassis | Products | Super Micro Computer, Inc.

    But does not help me for a 24x7 on in house system which is what I really want.

    The other option is caselabs bh4 I guess.
    Can't believe there is no small mATX cases that really work :(
