In brief will have budget for the new rig.

Just realized planned Cooler Master CM 690 III case it's too big for the location.

Considering a smaller mATX case such as BitPhenix Prodigy M, the question is if it's too small for a good air cooling.

Any experience to share on such small cases?

Is this the Case you are looking at?

Anyway this is the case I found from your description.

Cooling should be OK, it has two 120 MM fans.

What bothers me is the form factor of the mother board.

It says "Mini-ITX"
Be sure you get the correct mother board.

No this one it's the mATX version

that share anyway the same chassis of the miniITX version (appear to be a problem since its internally crowded)

Found also this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811196047
that appear to be better from tests since its built to be mATX with some better internal space.

Has enough fans (two 120mm). Cooling should not be any problem.
Dimensions 12.91" x 10.43" x 13.86" (H x W x D)

Has Two 120mm fans installed with option for a third.
Dimensions 250 x 404 x 359mm which is 8.8 inches x 15.9 inches x 14.2 inches American. Will it fit in your space?
I would choose this one. A bit larger not as crowded inside.

I do like building my own computer, I have built every computer I own. Except for one. The price was less than I could buy the parts.
