Thermaltake's usually pretty good about honoring its rebates. Just be prepared to wait half a year for your twenty bucks back. Any B450 ITX board ($100-130) will do - they're mostly as reliable as another - Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI, Asus, etc. Best to put in a Ryzen G chip in these as you're pretty limited in what GPU you can squeeze in there. Makes a decent peppy office machine.

I like building in these. Ive done a couple of decent builds in the past. they take standard psu and a most double fan gpu as well. I think the last one was a Ryzen 5 2600 with a RX580 in it

Just rebuilt my plex server that crashed. It's been in one of these for about 4 years. Love it. Has cages on one side for two full sized spinning hard drives. My OS was on a little ssd just tucked off to the side, inside. HUGE fan on the front.

I also bought a mini ITX case a while back and I've kinda confirmed my fears that you end up having spend more on many things, particularly the mobo, and various low profile fans and such. They design these things to accept full length gpus, but the clearance seemed tight enough to be a potential thermal issue, so I ended up getting a short GPU as well.

Still hoping you get some suggestions here though as I'm looking to upgrade some components.

I don't imagine this would fit an e-atx? Sizes always confuse me. I would love this form factor for my considerably bigger set up
Uhh an eATX (extended-ATX) is the polar opposite of the mITX form factor (smallest standard mobo size), so no :p.

Nice finding! Awesome little case, I used one to built my HTPC years ago, still going strong and the case fan is quiet.

I love mine. I got in on one of the previous deals @ $25. I still think this is a great case for $35 though. I did get my rebate, it took about 8 weeks if I remember correctly

Love this case! Managed to squeeze 3600X in Asus X570, 32 GB of RAM, 1080Ti in it. Running 850w evga and 1tb nvme. It's whisper quiet (water cooled) ; sits flush in my media center (cabinet is decently ventilated)
My new entertainment PC!!

I have the bigger version, and I love this case. If I were going to build an ITX today, this is the case I would get. Very flexible with good layout options.

I'm tempted to build a new Plex server but I think I want more than two spinners.

Have one. Highly recommended. It's big enough you can use standard parts, but where this shines is with liquid coolers. There is a LOT of space to mount exhaust fans on top, so I have a liquid cooled GPU and a liquid cooler for my CPU pumping heat quietly out the top, while the enormous front fan quietly brings in fresh air.

Really you can't go wrong with this one.
