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:
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.
