There are not a lot of cases that are both ultra compact, and offer dual slot GPU support. The MC600 offers both as long as you are willing to run mid level parts.

WHERE TO BUY
Logic Supply MC600 - Orange/SilverFrom $100
Logic Supply MC600 - BlackFrom $100
Recently I took a look at the Logic Supply MC600, which is one of the most interesting Mini-ITX cases on the market. The case is manufactured by a Logic Supply, a company who specializes in industrial PC’s and cases. I was pleasantly surprised to see something like this from them. The MC600 comes in orange/silver, or black. I normally lean toward simple black color schemes, but the orange and silver model grew on me over time.
It might be a little difficult to imagine exactly how small this case is without seeing it in person. Not a millimeter of space was wasted. The Mc600 comes in at a tiny 13.1″ x 2.5″ x 7.8″, making it the smallest case with full height/dual slot gpu support that I am aware of.
The MC600 is made entirely of fairly thin but sturdy steel. I never got the feeling that the case was unstable. The scratch resistant paint coating feels good to the touch, and has the rugged feel you would expect from an industrial product.
Unlike most consumer cases, the interior of this case is bare metal. If this was a windowed model that would bother me, but this is a closed design. As to be expected from an industrial case, some of the interior edges were sharper then you may be used to. Just be careful when installing you components.

MC600 System Build
Building a system in the MC600 is extremely straight forward and simple to build in. I would definitely recommended removing the front panel. Then install your components (see video for demo). Depending on the size of your GPU, it may or may not interfere with the fan bracket. I would recommend flipping the bracket around to maximize space.
I managed to fit an EVGA GTX 950 mini in the case with no problem. There is space for GPU’s up to around 7.75″. You will definitely need to utilize at least one fan on the GPU side. I also added dual 40mm fans on the CPU side to increase airflow. Heat was not a major issue in me testing. You can check out my full impressions in the video below.
