15 AZZA Pyramid Mini 806

AZZA Pyramid Mini 806

Artsy gamers looking for something truly unique among PC cases can't go wrong with the Pyramid Mini 806. It's certain to attract attention and spark up a conversation while giving the gaming room a much-needed injection of cool.

The Mini 806 features four tempered glass side panels to view the technological artwork housed within. It supports Mini-ITX motherboards to keep the build footprint small and easy to work with. It may not be to every gamer's tastes, but those who want to conserve space whilst jazzing up their desk have little to lose.


14 Thermaltake Level 20 XT

Thermaltake Level 20 XT

Cube-style PC cases are hit or miss, but Thermaltake got it right with the Level 20 XT. This illustrious case can fit standard M-ATX motherboard and CPU coolers up to 185mm in height. It can also house twin 240mm radiators and large fan options for excellent cooling capabilities.

The Level 20's horizontal motherboard layout makes placing components a breeze and helps prevent common issues associated with vertical layouts such as video card sag. There's plenty of room to work within the case, and its modular nature delivers lots of options for particular PC builders.

13 Corsair Obsidian 1000D

Corsair Obsidian 1000D

If you've ever heard yourself muttering the phrase "you can never have too many fans," then the Obsidian 1000D is for you. Corsair's behemoth does a lot more than keep your computer frosty - it pulls double-duty on two machines, at once!

Yes, you heard right. This is a dual-system case, which means that theoretically you could have a gaming PC and a rendering rig under the same hood, at the same time. The inclusion of 18 fan mounts and support for radiators up to 480mm means premiere cooling, but don't be surprised if your electrical bill soars!

12 Phanteks Evolv Shift X

Phanteks Evolv Shift X

It looks like a piece of Forerunner technology from the Halo franchise, but the Evolv Shift X is actually a wicked little PC case designed specifically for home theater setups. As such, it can fit right in with your existing video and audio tech.

The narrow design of the case means it can handle only Mini-ITX motherboards, but that's hardly an issue these days. Its height allows it to handle a lot of components, including liquid cooling setups, making it a great choice for those who want to save some space, and look cool while doing it.

11 Cooler Master H500P Mesh

Cooler Master H500P Mesh

If airflow trumps all, the H500P Mesh might be worth a second look. This case can even handle 360mm radiators in the front and top - proof that Cooler Master isn't skimping on its namesake.

The clear view design of the case makes it easy to show off your build, your fans, and even liquid cooling loops. RGB lighting does a lot to bring the case alive, as well. Definitely a case for those who want maximum cooling options.

10 Antec Cube

Antec Cube

If you like the idea of a compact cube case setup, but aren't happy with modern options, the Antec Cube might change your mind. Razer partnered with Antec to create this strikingly cool ATX case that is head and shoulders above its peers in terms of style and functionality.

In fact, the Cube is so well designed that it may fool a lot of folks into thinking they're limited when it comes to builds. In truth, it can handle GPUs as long as 350mm, it has liquid cooling support, and its HDD mounts are cleverly designed to maximize available space. And again...those looks!

9 InWin 309

InWin 309

Looking like something out of a Synthwave music video, InWin's 309 takes the concept of expression through lighting, and cranks the dial until it falls off. This is perhaps one of the most spectacular PC cases on the market - if you can handle all that color!

The case's most stunning feature is the front panel, comprised of 144 addressable LED lights, with a total of 12 lighting modes to choose from. GLOW2 software allows you to create pixel-based creations on the panel by toggling individual LEDs, and their colors. It even has a built-in mic that can detect music, and "dance" to the rhythm!

8 Thermaltake View 71 Tempered Glass ARGB Edition

Thermaltake View 71 Tempered Glass ARGB Edition

There's something strangely elegant and classy about Thermaltake's amazing View 71. Perhaps it's all that tempered glass, but we think it's more about the company's approach to modular design.

The View 71 is one of Thermaltake's absolute-best cases. It allows for a myriad of options when building a gaming PC, and there's practically nothing one can't accomplish with it. Lots of care was taken to allow for multiple build configs, and the transparent approach to case design is a great way to show off your rig.

7 Thermaltake Core P90 Tempered Glass Edition

Thermaltake Core P90 Tempered Glass Edition

Thermaltake scores another hit on our list thanks to the P90 Tempered Glass Edition. Its futuristic open-concept design looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, especially if your build is sporting the coolest parts. Its main attraction is the 3-way placement layout, which is a bit abstract to say the least, but perfectly suited for out-of-the-box PC enthusiasts.

Like most of Thermaltake's cases these days, modular functionality is a key factor. You can do practically anything with the P90, from hanging it on your wall, to adding a riser card for vertical GPU setup, and everything in between. Certain to give your friends the jellies!

6 NZXT H700i Ninja

NZXT H700i Ninja

Popular case maker NZXT appears to have streamlined its entire case build with a more uniform design aesthetic, but it's a great one, to be sure! There's still plenty of room for individual cases to stand out as well, and the H700i Ninja is no exception.

This hot case features popular Twitch streamer Ninja with a brilliant cobalt blue/gold aesthetic is simply stunning. Toss in his comic book-style bust logo on the side panel, and you're ready to go! It also sports a nice cable management system, intuitive water-cooling options, and RGB/fan control using NZXT's CAM software (recommended even for non-NZXT owners, to keep tabs on system temps).

5 Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic

Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic

Razer has its fingers in a few pies, including Lian Li, who helped co-design the PC-011 Dynamic. If see-through is your thing, it's hard to top this one! The entire case is a mixture of brushed aluminum and glass, maximizing elegant simplicity.

All this openness might suggest a mess of cables, but Lian Li and Razer have thought of that, and responded with a very good dual-layer cable management system. It also supports up to 6 SSDs, and full RGB lighting with Razer Synapse 3 linkage. It might be a straightforward design, but it definitely isn't square!

4 Be Quiet! Silent Base 801

Be Quiet! Silent Base 801

If the name of your company is "Be Quiet!", you'd better have what it takes to live up to it. Thankfully, the Silent Base 801 does exactly that. The traditional design of the case is flanked by some elegant lines and a lovely orange accent to spice the build up a bit, but the good doesn't stop there.

The case is designed to minimize as much noise as possible, and does so with a combination of insulation mats, noise dampening vents and preinstalled 140mm Pure Wings 2 fans which are optimized for quiet, efficient airflow. There's a lot more to this elegant case than meets the eye, which should be enough for any gamer to take a second look!

3 Cougar Gemini X Dual-System Case

Cougar Gemini X Dual-System Case

More advanced gamers with a lot of cash to spend might be interested in the Cougar Gemini X, a wicked-looking case that can handle not one, but two separate PC builds in one frame. This is great for gamers who may wish to take advantage of a secondary system for dedicated video production, content streaming, or music production.

The 3mm thick aluminum chassis is super-strong, and comes with tempered glass panels for the ultimate in build quality. A dual airflow system, clever cable management, and plenty of space for twin machine components make this one of the coolest and most versatile PC cases currently on the market.

2 LIAN LI DK-05F & DK-04F Black Aluminum Steel Desk Computer Case

LIAN LI DK-05F & DK-04F Black Aluminum Steel Desk Computer Case

For gamers who just happen to be in the market for a new gaming desk as well as a PC, LIAN LI's Steel Desk Computer Cases can solve two problems in one go. It's a gaming desk with a built-in chassis that can house your next PC build.

The advantages here are obvious. With the right setup, one can eliminate the need to have a bulky PC case while simultaneously enjoying one of the best cable management options around. With built-in connectors, a versatile tray design, and the ability to run liquid cooling loops with ease, this is one of the most convenient PC cases on the market.

1 Antec Torque

Antec Torque

Depending on one's mindset, this case either resembles the front end of a motorcycle or a helmet straight out of the Mass Effect franchise. Regardless, it's one astonishingly cool case with an outrageously bold and sleek design.

The Antec Torque is designed with an open-air approach and the ability to run liquid cooling loops in ways never before seen. It's impossible not to notice as it rockets games to full acceleration while sprucing up the desk area. Gamers with cats might wish to think twice about picking up this case, but everyone else should definitely take a second look.
