Atx cases with the smallest footprint

Im currently looking to move my PC components into a smaller case (currently it's in a fractal design define r5). I don't want to have to replace any components though so it has to be an atx case.

I'm not bothered about finding the smallest atx case possible, more so the smallest 'footprint' atx case, cube cases, although often smaller have a larger footprint so actually take up more space, I'm not bothered about height, but I'd like as small a depth as possible. I'm currently looking at corsairs carbide 400c, are there any other smaller cases?

some "compact" cases like the 400C are the Phanteks P400 and NZXT S340. also, it's a premium, niche thing, but the InWin 805 is another one. the Thermaltake Core G3 is a new slim ATX case.

i absolutely love the concept and design of the Thermaltake Core G3, but its only got 2 expansion slots, whereas i need 3 as my wifi card uses one. do you know where i could possibly find any more 'slim' atx cases?

Perhaps the Corsair Air 540?

one of the biggest due to it's width. :)

I read that completely *** backwards

haha. I absolutely love the look of the new corsair air 740 though, however looking at the dimensions, its an absolutely massive case

Lian li PC-07S? Quiet pricy, somewhat unusual, but is very thin and quiet tool. Looks awsome too.

thanks for the suggestion , it looks like a nice case and very thin, but its a bit too deep for what im looking for

The Corsair Spec-Alpha is slightly smaller than the define r5

interesting case, but its quiet deep, and fairly extravagant, whereas something a little more subtle would be better
