Hi all, I'm looking for a cube like micro atx case, sort of like the Antec
Aria Cube. However, I would like to be able to put a 400W+ Normal PSU and I
doubt the Antec Aria can accept a normal psu. Anyone know of a case that
would accept a normal psu? The closest I have found is this :

but it's not quite the cube type I'm looking for. Looks more like a mini
tower type case and not sure it would accept a normal PSU.
What I want to do is build a med performance pc on a  MSI RS480M2-il board
with a low end vga card. I'm concerned about the power supply being only
300W on the antec for example.
Any recommendation for micro cases.

What are you putting in there that needs more than 400 watts?
Heat's apt to be a problem if you're sucking that much.

Don't blame me. I voted for Gore.

I'm sure it won't... and you won't find one either.
The problem is you want tiny, then further reduction in
interior space due to the PSU.  You wouldn't need that much
PSU if you had lower heat parts but having the limit on how
many parts can be used, you must have some really hot
running gear to need 400W PSU.  So, with such a tiny space
you have no way to move sufficient air in & out.

There are mATX cases that take std. ATX PSU... they're
barely smaller than a "regular" mid-tower, not even close to
being a small cube.

Let me put it another way.  Almost no PC needs over 400W.
If one could simply use a smaller case with no drawbacks (if
it were even possible in some situations) we'd all use
smaller cases.    Either you don't need 400W or you do need
a larger case.
