The Lian Li Lancool 216 is not the average budget case. It’s one of the best budget case sof all time.
The Fractal Design Ridge is a unique and slim ITX case, but its design limits CPU cooling performance.
NZXT’s H5 Elite bridges the gap between pretty glass and component-cooling airflow–by adding one to the front of the case.
The Azza Aero 480 case offers a boatload of RGB for less than expected, but in testing, its thermal performance wasn’t as good as you might expect.
Montech’s Sky One Lite packs RGB, a hinged tempered glass side panel and a mesh front for about $100. But does its performance stand up to the budget case competition?
On paper, the Ssupd Meshroom S looks like the most versatile SFF case ever. But it’s expensive at $160, and complicated to build in if you veer from a traditional ITX layout.
The Fractal Design Pop Silent is impressively quiet thanks to sound-dampening foam, but we’d prefer better cooling, even if that meant adding a few decibels.
Phanteks’ Eclipse G360A makes it clear that a case doesn’t have to cost a lot to be truly great. With good airflow, three PWM aRGB fans and a light strip, there’s a lot to love here for $100.
The Hyte Y60 is a unique spin on the ever-popular Lian Li O-11 Dynamic, with its panoramic glass side panels. However, its air-cooled thermal performance isn’t enough to dethrone the king.
Corsair’s RGB-blazoned iCue 5000T is pretty, bright, and pricey, but the company hasn’t skimped out on performance or practicality.
Cooler Master’s HAF 700 Evo is a unique case that does a great job combining the HAF legacy of excellent cooling with modern features, but the high price somewhat spoils it.
Fractal takes its popular airflow-focused Torrent design and trims it down a bit with the Torrent Compact. The 180 mm fans impress, but there isn't a lot of extra room for storage or stray cables.
The NZXT H1 V2 attempts to come back strong after its predecessor was recalled. Is room for larger GPUs and a beefier PSU enough to make it stand out?
NZXT brings a mesh front intake to its new H510 Flow, but by today’s standards, it’s far from a perfect case.
Lian Li’s mini-ITX Q58 case delivers a brilliant layout to achieve a compact, yet thermally capable ITX system. It looks pretty great, too.
Lian Li’s PC-O11D Mini is coming out in an Air variant, and it’s the more practical alternative to the weird and wonderful O11D Mini.
Cooler Master’s NR200P Max takes the original, moves some stuff around, and throws in a mighty 280mm AIO and 850W SFX PSU & Gen 4 riser cable.
iBuyPower is opening the Revolt 3 chassis up for purchase under the Hyte name, without a full system inside it, and it might just be one of the best ITX cases you can buy.
