ProsAwesome capacity packed into a small volume; great looks
ConsNot good for travel due to insecure component mounting system
Since 2013, we've reviewed over three dozen cases, including many of the most popular, best-selling mini-ITX cases ever released. But the ITX market has changed profoundly since we first got started reviewing the cases by the likes of SilverStone, Antec, and In-Win. Today, there are dozens of small batch "boutique" manufacturers out there, looking to fill in the voids in the market with unique designs that big-name manufacturers were either unwilling or unable to produce. So it's with great honor that TBG reveals its first review of a boutique case, the P-ATX V2 from Croatia-based SFF Time! With a total volume of around 10 liters and the ability to hold the largest of video cards, it has a lot of promise. But what's it like to build in and how does it perform? That's what we aim to find out!
Special thanks to SFF Time for providing us a sample of the SFF Time P-ATX V2!
TBG's Video Review
Going forward, all of TBG's reviews will be released exclusively on YouTube, as video provides far more opportunity to offer details and insight into production design and functionality than a written review ever could.

The P-ATX V2 is an innovative case that offers options that no major manufacturer will give you. While we tested it as an ITX case, it can actually be used with an ATX motherboard, which is quite incredible given the size. The price is a bit high, and the component mounting system means the case isn't suitable for travel, but anyone looking for a slim, high-performance case for their next PC build should have the P-ATX V2 on their short list!
We're actually going to be using it for our personal Small Form Factor system, but we'll be taking advantage of its ATX compatibility to re-purpose our current high-end benchmarking system in a tiny case once we replace it with a next-gen system. This kind of versatility really makes the P-ATX V2 one of a kind!
If we see sufficient interest in this case, we may be adding it to one of the high-end SFF systems we feature in our DIY PC Build Guides, so stay tuned!
