I want to build a small factor mini-itx PC for gaming around a motherboard based on AMD X570. Ideally, I am looking for cases <20lt in volume. Slightly bigger cases (<24lt) would also do.
The problem is that with these volume limitations, any good looking cases I've found (e.g. NZXT H1 or Phanteks Evolv Shift 2) use PCIe risers that are only PCIe 3.0 compatible. I've also found some small factor cases that support PCIe 4.0 GPUs that are yet to go on sale (e.g. Thor-Zone Mjolnir).
So, I am looking for recommendations for mini-itx cases with:
- streamlined look (see examples above),
- volume <20lt (or at worst <24lt),
- PCIe 4.0 GPU compatibility (either via a compatible riser or by allowing directly attaching the GPU to the motherboard),
- availability within Q1 2021 (or at worst Q2 2021).
Speculations on whether/when one of the models mentioned above will be updated to PCIe 4.0 are also welcome in the comments.
