I'll be upgrading an X58 system to Skylake some time next month. I'm looking to migrate the ATX-size board of the X58 into a cheap, compact case to act as a backup. It doesn't need USB 3.0. Anyone have recommendations in the $30 and under range if buying new?

Yeah the T5 was my first choice. I think it's plenty good for the price. Thanks.

For $30... nothing you want.

Haha I'm sure. I've never bought a case under $100 unless it was on some fluke sale.
But this is just an enclosure for a retired system that may never even see any use again, so it really does not matter. The fact that it even has a USB 3.0 port exceeds my expectations already.

well I goofed...I got the T5 and it doesn't support ATX. I had read the "Power Supply" spec on the Newegg page instead of "motherboard compatibilty."

You probably be better off and spending a bit more than $30 on a case. The Corsair Air 540 is a nice compact case. Look on eBay, maybes there is one going second hand?
