1. NZXT H500
This is a mid-tower case that has a beautiful and clean design, with tempered glass slide panel that can showcase your machine. It has pre-installed NZXT Aer F120 Case Version fans and another rear fan mount that can fit a 120mm fan. It also has support for liquid cooling. It makes minimal noise, but you should know that the vibrations from the top fan can cause a bit of noise. But all in all this case is great, it looks good, it has good cable management solution and it is affordable.
2. Phanteks Eclipse P400S
This is a full metal body case that has a very stylish tempered glass side panel. Like the previous one, it is also a mid-tower case. The noise that this case makes is minimal because of the material this case is made from. It has round holes that are good for the airflow, and it has space for two 120mm fans. It has magnetic dust filters, adjustable fan, a removable HDD cage, water cooling and RGB lighting, everything that one case needs to have. And the best part is that it doesn’t cost a lot.
3. Phanteks Pro M
Another cool case from this brand is their Pro M model. It has so much space, so you can build a very good PC and the airflow is great because it has 198mm high tower coolers, and two Phanteks Premium 140mm fans. It makes minimal noise, but you should know that hard drive cage can produce a bit of noise.
4. In Win 301 Mini Tower Case
If you have a small motherboard, then this case is for you. This case has removable HDD cages and Magnetic Dust Filters. It looks beautiful and elegant with the tempered glass side panel. It’s portable, good looking, and affordable. The only thing that can be better with this case is the airflow.
5. NZXT H400i
Here we are again with NZXT H series, but this time with the H400i model. This case has plenty of space for AIO because it features dual-position cable management and a cable routing kit. It looks great with its tempered glass panel and the lighting that has digital controllers. This case supports multiple GPUs and a lot of I/Os, it accommodates two 140mm fans in the front and two on the roof and one more 120mm fan at the rear. The only problem is that it doesn’t support single 3.5-inch drives, too bad.
6. MasterBox Pro 5 RGB
This case features patterned magnetic dust filters, it has modular I/O panel, and the airflow and cooling are great with this case. It comes with two RGB fans and space for water cooling. Like many others, this case also has a good looking tempered glass slide panel. The only problem is that it is a bit small, but if you are looking for a small case then it is perfect.
7. Be Quiet! Pure Base 600
A case with such a cool name. The name comes from the fact that this case is so quiet, like no other. If you can’t stand any noise coming from your PC then this case is for you. But that’s not all, this case also looks beautiful, and it has a tempered glass panel. It has liquid cooling components, ability to hold 360mm radiators, a couple of Pure Wing fans, and a pair of dust filters. This case is simple, quiet, and brilliant.
8. Thermaltake Core V21
If you are looking for a micro-ATX PC case, look no more. This Thermaltake Core V21 case is a great portable micro-ATX PC case. It offers you lots of expansion options, it allows you room for up to five radiators and 11 fans, so the cooling part is taken care of. It has magnetic dust filters, and a huge window so you can display your components. The only problem with this case is that it can be a bit noisy because they didn’t you any noise absorbing materials when they were making it.
9. MasterBox Q300L
This MasterBox case is great and it’s portable. If you are on the budget, then this PC case is for you. The design is great, and the design of the magnetic dust filters is even better. It has an adjustable I/O panel. It can accommodate both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives, which is great because not all of the cases can. It has RGB lighting which is always a plus, we all love those flashy colors. And the cable management system is pretty impressive, you will not have a problem with that. The problem with this case is that it is really small so it will limit the rig building. And another thing is that it doesn’t come with the instructions for the RGB controller, but that shouldn’t be a big of a problem.
10. Thermaltake V200
This Thermaltake case has three 120mm 12V RGB intake fans that are dual-mode controlled, and it has space for water cooling and dual GPU setup. The cable management system is also perfect, so you will be left with plenty of room for components. It has some cool RGB lighting that will make your PC case stand out.
