PC cases have come a long way in the past few years. They are no longer bulky, heavy units with limited customization options. Now you can find an attractive, comfortable computer case at a range of prices.

We’ve selected the best PC cases for a variety of needs to help you build the perfect PC.

1. Best PC Cooling Case:
Cooler Master H500P Mesh White

If you’re looking for a mid-tower with excellent thermal performance to keep your components cool and running at peak performance, check out Cooler Master H500P Mesh White.

The original Cooler Master H500P wasn’t great in terms of cooling. But by replacing the front panel with a mesh grill, the company has created a case with fantastic airflow. It has two large 200mm fans on the front to keep air flowing throughout the case. And RGB fans, so they can glow in the color of your choice, which looks great along with the grid.

There’s also a tempered glass side panel, a power supply shroud to hide ugly cable clutter, an option to mount the GPU vertically, and support for 360mm drivers on the top or front.

2. Most Stylish PC Case:
NZXT H500i

For those of you who want a sleek, attractive mid-length case that will complement rather than detract from the look of their components, the NZXT H500i is a winner. This update to the popular S340 Elite features the same tempered glass side panel, polished metal chassis and power supply shroud as the previous version. But it also has newer features such as the built-in RBG controller which is perfect for lighting enthusiasts and comes in four color schemes.

The cable management panel makes it easy to hide cables, and there’s plenty of room for a tank and pump if you want to cool the system with water. The case also comes with two 120mm fans. You may want to add more fans for better cooling since air will only flow through the front.

3. Best Computer Case for Budget Performance:
Thermaltake Versa J24

If you want to easily build a case with decent thermal insulation materials at an affordable price, take a look at the Thermaltake Versa J24. This is one of the best computer cases, especially those on a budget. This mid tower has all the features you need such as a tempered glass side, PSU shroud and support for 360mm radiators on the front.

It features three 120mm RGB fans to light and cool your system, and the lighting can be controlled with a button on the I/O port. You can switch between seven different preset colors and seven different modes, or use the RBG mode to select the exact color of your choice.

There is also a J25 version with an acrylic front panel, but we recommend the J24 for better airflow.

4. Most Unusual PC Case:
Lian Li PK-08

If you want a build that stands out, the Lian Li PC-08 is an expensive but unique option. It features a dual-chamber design that is ideal for complex custom water-cooled installations. One side contains the motherboard and GPU, while the other side contains the drives and power supply.

Because of the two chambers, this hull is slightly wider than standard medium tower hulls. But if you have the space, the PC-08 offers both beautiful aesthetics and great flexibility for water cooling.

This is an older model, so it is not always in stock. For a similar option, you can try the PC-09 model instead. Or for a water-cooled case without two chambers and a hefty price tag, try the PC-011 Dynamic.

5. Best PC Case for Minimalists:
CoolerMaster NR600

Cooler Master NR600 is exactly what you need and nothing more. It’s a great choice for balancing solid performance with a clean, minimalist aesthetic. The outside is black and a tempered glass side panel covers most, but not all, of the side panel. The bottom of the side panel is opaque to hide the power supply and cables.

It comes with two 120mm fans and the front panel is made of mesh to promote airflow. There is plenty of room for further cooling, as the case can accommodate a 360mm radiator or three 120mm fans on the front, two 120mm or 140mm fans on the top, and a 120mm fan on the back.

6. Best Mini-ITX PC Case:
Thermaltake Core V1

For a small form factor chassis, the Thermaltake Core V1 offers surprisingly good thermal performance. This case is slightly larger than other mini-ITX cases, but this increased size makes it easier to build and improves airflow.

There’s a fun, quirky feature on the top acrylic window so you can see your components inside. It has a chamber design with top space for the graphics card and bottom space for the power supply. The interior can be customized in various ways. It comes with a large 200mm fan for ventilation and there is also room for two more 80mm fans in the back.

7. Best PC for PC.
stay calm! Dark Base Pro 900 Black Rev. 2

If size isn’t an issue and you’re looking for a luxurious complete tower to build, don’t worry! Dark Base Pro 900 Black Rev. 2 has everything you need. This is an upgrade to the hugely popular Dark Base Pro 900 with the addition of a power supply shroud and improved fans.

Fans are plentiful, with three Silentwings 3 fans preinstalled. There are two 140mm fans in the front and one fan in the back. Massive 420mm radiators front and top are supported, and capacity for all the drives you might need with the installation of seven 3.5″ drives and 14 2.5″ drives.

8. Best Low Noise PC Case:
stay calm! Quiet Base 601

If quiet operation is your priority, you will enjoy silence! Silent base 601. This mid-chassis has noise-dampening vents that allow airflow to limit noise at the same time. It also comes with two 140mm Pure Wings 2 quiet fans for airflow.

There is a power supply shroud to keep everything neat, but no tempered glass. Instead, the case has metal side panels with thick polyurethane foam insulation inside to reduce fan noise. For better cooling, you can add an additional fan. But this would be at the cost of a silent setting of the standard configuration.
