I’m trying to find a great space saving computer case while keeping the same components since next fall I’ll be moving into a dorm which as you know has very limited space. What is a great compact motherboard and case combo that fits the dimensions of my components? I’ve been loooking around but can’t make a decision. Also, side note, any low profile cpu coolers would be much appreciated if they are air. If not I’ll most likely end up going with water. Thanks! Hope it’s not too much to ask!

Parts list:
i7-8700k

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW ULTRA SILENT GAMING

Corsair Vengeance 2x8gb RAM

EVGA 650W GQ 80+ Gold

P.s. I’m fine with getting a new power supply as well if needed if mine doesn’t fit the case or whatever other reasons. No need to research that though I can get that.
