Hello everyone!

I'm in a bit of a bind and trying to find a new computer case to transfer my current PC into.
The catch is that I need the computer case to be no more than 17" or 431.8mm tall or it wont fit in my space.

I've done some digging and found this question posted and answered a few different times, but they all seem to be a few years old so the cases are either unavailable or cost excess of $300.

I'm hoping someone may know of a newer case that's more readily available.

Ideally I am able to keep my current set up with 3.5"HDDs and 2.5"SSD, but if I have to forego the storage space/upgrade to an m.2 to make it work I will.

Budget ideally under $250, but willing to pay a little more if the case is actually worth that amount (and not just price hiked due to lack of availability)

Any suggestions or solutions are welcome, and please feel free to ask any questions if you need more info.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Current Components:
CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K
Cooler: NZXT Kraken X63
MoBo: Asus PRIME Z390-A ATX LGA1151
PSU: SeaSonic FOCUS GX 1000
Storage: 3.5" HDD x2
2.5" SSDx1

18,510 the only limitation height? You talk about your space limitations with height and limit it at 17" but is that the only limitation?

Hey, thanks for the reply!

That's a good question. The height is the main factor, but Ideally the case also wouldn't be any wider or deeper than a traditional mid tower case, and if possible some airflow would be nice hahaha.

The depth does also have a maximum which would be the length/depth of my desk 21".

I would also say it would be good if the width didn't exceed 13".

With that said I guess my limits for dimensions would be LWH 21" x 13" x 17". I suppose the length and width could be interchangeable as I could just rotate the case 90 degrees.

If a case had removable feet that put it into those specs I'd be totally cool with that.
