Hi, what's the smallest desktop PC case it's practical to have?
My current case is about 18" square by 8" deep, much too big in my opinion because it's full of empty space anyway, and I'm thinking of getting a new smaller case and transferring the components into it.
Will a smaller case cause overheating problems or whatever?

Depending on the design of the case, = fans, air flow, venting, and your type of hardware, overheating could very well become an issue.

You will also need to be aware of your motherboard form factor when considering a new case.
