Xtia Slim is high quality case with plenty of potential in small package, and multiple configuration options.
The case starts a just 3.6L with 45mm of cooler clearance in form-S, 4.7L with 65mm of cooler clearance in form-M, and 5.8L with 85mm of cooler clearance in form-L.
In our testing, we found CPU coolers that overhang the RAM slots were not able to be installed in most instances, due to the placement of the front I/O in some or all case forms. We also found that some CPU coolers that overhang towards the PCIe slot can block access to GPU power connector ports, preventing GPU power cable installation.
On final note, in form-M & L with GPU installed, the GPU blocks the air intake vents for FlexATX power supplies. There is also no ventilation for the power supply on the opposite side of the case, so it cannot be flipped around either. This could potentially cause overheating issues for the power supply.
