You are about an inch away from an matx case which can use better cheaper motherboards. I don’t see the point of mitx this size

Same, was eyeing the pictures and was like.. “Why not get a smaller mATX case and get more inputs? This has to be the same size as those.”

I've been seriously eyeing this case. I'm currently in a Thermaltake Level 20 VT, and while it is a decent case, it is limited in regards to radiator support. I have a 280mm AIO which removes the possibility of adding any other additional fans to the top. Add on the fact that my EVGA 2080S Hybrid didn't fit till I moved the rad fan to the outside of the case...

I'm in line for an EVGA 3080 Hybrid which is a 280mm rad. I'll be needing a new case and this P200a will fit 2x240 or a 240/280 combo. Add in that it takes a regular PSU and I'm intrigued.

This pretty much looks like a mini version of my P600S. Too sad, if it was a slot taller then an mATX could be fitted in the same space like mentioned in the comments above.

I noticed the reviewer's comment stating "Top PSU kind of weird.' I imagine there are others here, like me, who remember when a top mounted PSU was about the only placement you could find for the PSU in any type of tower case.
