So glad I've sold you this mobo! You've got yourself one of the best SFF builds I've ever seen.

The budget plays a tertiary role here. As long as the chassis isn't priced above the level of NCASE M1, it'll do.

Thanks guys, Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX came to my mind as well, and it is available in white too so I'd be happy with it. Plus, it has a set of handy features as well.

Parvum Veer looks interesting but it doesn't fit my taste.

Caselabs Nova XM2 looks like it gets **** done but again, it looks too industrial-ish.

Corsair 250D offers support only for one dual-fan radiator which is why I'd not consider it.

This Lian-Li PC05S looks sick and I'd love to feature that case in my build if it had better radiator support. I've noticed it can host a GPU up to 310 mm in length if HDD rack is removed so it would solve clearance issues but again - I'd like to install 2 dual-fan radiators.

Define Nano S seems like it's on par with Evolv ITX but it could provoke clearance issues between top radiator and my Asus Maximus VIII Impact motherboard and Avexir Raiden DIMMs. Those are pretty tall RAM modules and MoBo has that horizontal power module which would obstruct the installation of a radiator.

This isn't an issue with NZXT Manta because it mounts top rad above the motherboard, not in front of it like Evolv ITX and Nano S do. If you are familiar with those clearance issues, please let me know if they would occur with my particular components.

This will be an "enthusiast" build so I don't consider saving necessary.
