The Super LAN BOY is a great case that fits your size limits - it's 16.5" (420mm) tall. It's smaller then most mid-tower cases - but does have an excellant utilization of space. With a 120mm intake and exhaust fan, it offers great airflow - and this could be improved by adding a blow hole/side intake. It doesn't offer a removable motherboard tray, but neither does anything else with a height less then 17".

thanks for the replys. I was looking at both these cases. I was looking at the regular LANBoy but and was dissapointed by the 2 80mm fans because i wanted 120mm but this has them. Do you know if they fixed the heat problem with the orginal LANBoy in this version?

I also like the Sonata my roomate has it but the stupid Blue LED's keep me up at night when he leaves it on. I would have to add a switch.

Yeah the LED they used are SUPER brite, so I simply didn't plug them in (it was an accident actually, I missed the connector, but am quite pleased as before it illiminated my room at night = BAD)

You may want to Valk to answer this - as he has recently bought the case. But there isn't anything unduly restricting air-flow for the front 120mm intake fan, so I would guess that temps should be good for air cooling. Two decent CFM 120mm fans (plus air exhausted by PSU) is more then enough to create great air flow in a case that is only 420mm (H) x 435mm (D) x 208mm (W).
