I'm seeking a micro-ATX case which only has 2 vents, so that I can pipe air into it from an air filter. A shaped front bezel could also interfere with my plan.

It seems to be hard to find.
Anyone know of one?

Ideally, it would have USB 3.0 ports and be aluminum. Now I'm dreaming.

You can also tape up vents from the inside of the case.

A lot of the el'cheapo cases only have two vents. Unfortunately, they all also have el'cheapo plastic bezels. Your best bet is to buy an el'cheapo and maybe make your own bezel for the front (wood, perhaps).

Aluninum with two vents isn't likely. The more expensive a case, usually, the better the ventalation. El'cheapos are almost exclusively made from steel.
