- ◄What is the difference between Mini, Compact and Standard?
- Our full customization PC listings are organized based on their physical size: with Tiny (ITX) being the smallest, Compact (MATX) being the mid-size and Standard (ATX) being the largest. The size of the PC will determine the type of motherboard and case to be used.
- ◄When should I consider the Mini (ITX) build?
Space Constraint (Pro): If you have very little space for your PC, you can consider our Tiny (ITX) build as it is smaller in size. Its general dimension is (L)38cm x (W)21cm x (H)35cm and it can fit on most table top.
Graphics Card (Con): Most of the ITX cases will not be able to fit the higher-end graphics card (RTX 3080 & RTX 3090) with proper ventilation. However, if you are a general gamer or someone who does casual renderings, you don't have to worry so much about it.
- ◄When should I consider the Compact (MATX) build?
Budget (Pro): The Compact (MATX) build is the most value for money as MATX motherboards and cases are cheaper in general. If you are looking to build your PC below $2k, then you should look at our Compact (MATX).
Space Constraint (Pro): The dimensions of a MATX build are roughly (L)39cm x (W)19cm x (H)40cm, not very big physically. The Compact PC comes with 3 or more fans to keep your PC cool for prolonged use.
Graphics Card (Con): The MATX cases will not be able to fit in the high-end graphics card (RTX 3080 & RTX 3090) as these cards are very big in physical size. However, if you are someone who just wants to play some games and render some videos, this wouldn't matter so much to you!
- ◄When should I consider the Standard (ATX) build?
Airflow (Pro): If you are looking to build a high-end rig (Ryzen 9/Intel i9 processor with RTX 3080/RTX 3090) for some hardcore gaming or serious renderings, you can consider the Standard (ATX). These high-end processors and graphics cards will generate alot of heat when on load, so the bigger case will allow better airflow to cool the system.
Graphics Card (Pro): High-end graphics card (RTX 3080 and above) will not be able to fit in the MATX build, as it is physically too big. These GPUs will also require better airflow so that the PC will not over-heat. Also, the PC will look cleaner and less cluttered when these big graphics card are installed in an ATX case.
