Enclosure/Power Supply – Corsair Carbide 200R Compact ATX
The Corsair Carbide 200R is one of the smallest ATX cases you can find that is capable of handling longer graphics cards. Originally, we wanted to use the Rosewill Rise, which was an ATX enclosure that completely removed all drive bays on the front of the case, opting for SSD placement behind the motherboard tray, making it quite small. But since that case is still not on the market, we opted for this one instead which retails for around $59.99 US.
For the power supply, we decided to pick out the Silverstone Strider Gold S 850W (80PLUS Gold) power supply. It’s small size (150mm depth) and modular design fits the bill for around $159.99 US. So already, we’re doing pretty good, saving a few dollars over our previous build.
