The best looking minimalist pc case mid tower

The best minimalist pc case isn’t just about functionality; it’s also about looks. You want your PC case to stand out on your desk, or at the very least to be subdued. Bad cases are ostentatious and limit your expandability options. You can choose between full towers and mini-ITX cases. Depending on how big and extravagant you want your build to be, you have a lot of options.

Picking the best pc case to match your style and needs is a good place to start if you want to build a gaming PC with a lot of personality. Find one that reflects your aesthetic, whether it’s simple and clean or excruciatingly loud. You’ll be staring at your computer all day, so make it your own. If building a PC seems a little out of your comfort zone, you can always opt for a prebuilt gaming PC and avoid the stress of doing it yourself.

Before you spend your money on the best minimalist pc case ever, there are a few things you should think about first. What is the size of your graphics card? Which motherboard are you going to use? How many drive bays are required? Determine what will go into the case before purchasing it to ensure that everything will fit. Here are the best cases we’ve tested this year, after we built them up and down and, of course, checked them for fire hazards.

Cooler Master Cosmos C700P

Cooler Master Cosmos C700P

The best full tower minimalist pc case in 2022

 

SPECIFICATIONS

Motherboard Form Factor: Full-tower E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX supportDimensions: 25.2 x 12 x 25.6 inches (639 x 306 x 651 mm) Weight: 48.9 pound (22.2 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm; 140 mm; 240 mm; 280 mmI/O 1x Audio/Mic, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C, 4x USB 3.0Drive ports 2×2.5-inch bays, 8×3.5-inch bays

REASONS TO BUY

Integrated RGB lighting system +Adjustable motherboard layout

AVOIDANCE REASONS

Only three internal drives

When using stock cooling, performance is mediocre.
The C700P, like the original Cooler Master Cosmos, is a hefty beast with a hefty price tag. However, we believe it is worthwhile to spend the money. A beautiful handlebar design, curved glass panel, and sleek color scheme are complemented by features that will support even the most expensive components (including E-ATX motherboards and oversized GPUs).

A larger footprint means you won’t be pressed for space, making it a joy to build into. Furthermore, the RGB lighting is subdued enough that it will not distract you while gaming. Yes, this is a lot of money to spend on a cage. Those who are willing to go all out on a build, on the other hand, will receive a case that includes everything they need to build a stunning PC.

Corsair Carbide 275R

Corsair Carbide 275R

The best budget minimalist pc case

SPECIFICATIONS

ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX Motherboard SupportDimensions: 18.1 x 8.3 x 17.9 inches (460 x 211 x 455 mm)
22.4lb in weight (10.14 kg)
Support for radiators: 120 mm; 140 mm; 240 mm; 280 mm; 360 mmI/O 1x Audio/Mic, 2x USB 3.0 Drive 3 x 2.5-inch bays, 2 x 3.5-inch bays

REASONS TO BUY

Low branding +Full-length dust filters +Excellent cooling support

REASONS NOT TO USE

Thermal Performance

The Carbide 275R, one of Corsair’s best cases, may be the ultimate minimalist’s case. Aside from a small “sail” logo on the front panel, the 275R is devoid of additional branding in favor of a clean design for the style-conscious. While the design is simple, the functionality is not.

In contrast to NZXT’s similarly compact S340, the Carbide 275R can accommodate a 360mm radiator in the front and up to six 120mm fans. With a low price tag of $80, the 275R is an excellent choice for both beginners and advanced users looking to create a sleek custom loop.

Phanteks Evolv X

Phanteks Evolv X

The best mid-tower case to build two systems in

SPECIFICATIONS

Mid-tower form factor
Motherboard E-ATX, ATX, M-ATX, mini-ITX supportDimensions: 20.5 x 9.5 x 20.1 inches (240 x 520 x 510 mm) Weight: 33 pound (15kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm, 140 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, 360 mm, 420 mmI/O 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, 1 headphone port, and 1 microphone port 6x 2.5-inch drive bays, 4x 3.5-inch drive bays

REASONS TO BUY

Supports dual-system builds +Large, well-designed interior +Excellent cable management

REASONS TO AVOID

Bad Thermals -Expensive

The Evolv X is an excellent chassis for anyone looking to build a mid-tower PC with a little something extra. Phanteks has made some incredible cases over the years, but the Evolv X stands out as an excellent chassis for anyone looking to build a mid-tower PC with a little something extra. The ability to slide two systems into its pleasing form—room there’s in the top for an ITX system to go above the main ATX system—is that extra. It’s a tight squeeze, to be sure, but it’s doable.

If your requirements aren’t quite so extreme, you’ll find it spacious to build in, with enough neat little touches and funky design choices to accommodate almost any build you have in mind. There’s room for all-in-one liquid coolers in the top (up to 360mm) and front (up to 420mm); it includes a universal fan hub, three Phanteks Premium 120mm fans, and cable-hiding flaps in the back so it looks good from any angle. You can also fit a ridiculous amount of storage into it.

NZXT H210i

NZXT H210i

The best mini-ITX minimalist pc case

SPECIFICATIONS

Motherboard Dimensions: Mini-ITX tower Mini-ITX supportDimensions: 8.3 x 13.7 x 14.6 inches (210 x 349 x 372 mm) 13.2 lb in weight (6 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm, 240 mmI/O 1x Audio/Mic, 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1Drive ports 4 x 2.5-inch bays, 1 x 3.5-inch bay

REASONS TO BUY

Excellent cooling support +Pre-installed addressable RGB lighting +Integrated CAM smart device

REASONS TO AVOID

Extremely Large for ITX Case –

There is only one front. A personality type
The NZXT H210i is a slightly updated version of the H200i with a front-panel USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port. Aside from that, it’s the same case, which is essentially a scaled-down version of one of our favorite mid-tower chassis, the H710i. The H210i is designed to support mini-ITX builds and is all about cramming a high-end system into a small, minimalistic package.

The case, like its bigger brother, includes NZXT’s smart hub, two fans, and one RGB LED strip. The H200i is the ideal compromise between smaller ITX builds and larger mid-sized towers, with plenty of support for liquid cooling and full-sized components.

Corsair iCUE 5000T RGB

Corsair iCUE 5000T RGB

The best PC case for RGB fanatics

SPECIFICATIONS

Mid-tower form factor
Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX, E-ATX Motherboard SupportDimensions: 530 x 251 x 560mm
14.53 kg in weight
Radiator Dimensions: 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm
I/O USB 3.0 x 4, USB 3.1 Type-C x 1, 3.5mm 4x 2.5-inch, 2x 3.5mm drive bays

REASONS TO BUY

Extremely high-quality +RGB lighting that looks great +RGB fans included +Lots of cooling options +You don’t have to worry if your cat sits on top of it

REASONS TO AVOID

Expensive -Requires iCUE to function properly -Overly aggressive default fan curves -No rear fan in the box

This PC case has the potential to divert attention away from your valuable components. You could have the most flashy GPU available, or even RAM sticks emblazoned with gems, but the first thing anyone will notice when they see your PC is all that RGB lighting.

The Corsair 5000T has a plethora of LED RGBs, more than any other case in the company’s history. There are six RGB strips around the outside of the case, and the three LL120 fans can be set to light up in any color of the rainbow if desired. Everything is managed by the Commander Core XT and the iCUE software.

This thing is gorgeously crafted from steel, plastic, and tempered glass, and while it’s quite heavy, it’s a real statement PC case for a high-end PC build. You could certainly go smaller for your PC, but you won’t find many that are as well made as this.

 

Cooler Master Silencio S600

Cooler Master Silencio S600

The best silent PC case

SPECIFICATIONS

Mid-tower form factor
Motherboard ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX support is available. Dimensions: 18.8 x 8.2 x 18.5 inches (478 x 209 x 471 mm) 21.4 lb in weight (9.7 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, 360 mmI/O 2 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 1 3.5mm Headset Jack (Audio+Mic), 1 SD card reader Drive 1x 5.25-inch bay, 5x 2.5-inch bay, 4x 3.5-inch bay

REASONS TO BUY

Windowed or enclosed options are available +High-quality sound-dampening material

AVOIDANCES

Heavy -Thin internal paneling

If you’re the type of gamer who needs complete concentration, a quiet PC case is essential. Once your PC begins to heat up and fans begin to blow at full force, your once-silent PC can quickly transform into something resembling a roaring jet engine. This is when a silent PC case comes in handy, and nothing does the job quite like Cooler Master’s Silencio series.
The Silencio S600 mid tower appears simple from the outside, but the interior is packed with intelligent engineering and high-quality sound dampening materials to help drown out any unwanted noise. Normally, this means sacrificing airflow, but despite its quiet nature, the S600 does a good job of moving air and keeping things cool.

 

Corsair Obsidian 1000D

Corsair Obsidian 1000D

The best high-end minimalist pc case

SPECIFICATIONS

Motherboard Form Factor: Super-tower E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX supportDimensions: 27.4 x 12.1 x 27.3 inches (697 x 307 x 693 mm) poundage: 65 lb (29.5 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm; 140 mm; 240 mm; 280 mm; 360 mm; 420 mm; 480 mmI/O 1x Audio/Mic, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 3.1 Type-CDrive ports 6x 2.5-inch bays, 5x 3.5-inch bays

REASONS TO BUY

Supports almost any crazy build +Can house an E-ATX and Mini-ITX build simultaneously + Allows for dual 480mm front radiators.

REASONS TO AVOID –

Extremely large -Extremely expensive

Speaking of spacious builds, the Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D PC case is a behemoth ready to house the biggest and baddest systems. This “super-tower” stands a staggering 27.3-inches tall and has enough space to house 18 fans and up to four massive radiators installed simultaneously.

In addition to stellar cooling support, the 1000D has a unique triple-chamber design with convenient french-door-styled storage compartments and telescoping radiator trays for easy installation. Of course, because it’s 2022, there’s an RGB-lit front panel I/O with built-in smart lighting and fan control via Corsair’s integrated Commander Pro controller. The Obsidian 900D has long been a popular choice for massive, over-the-top builds, so it’s only natural that the 1000D was designed to dethrone it.

 

Dark Base Pro 900

be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900

The best case for modders

SPECIFICATIONS

Full-tower is the form factor.
Motherboard E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX supportDimensions: 22.7 x 9.6 x 23.1 inches (577 x 243 x 586 mm) 31.7 lb in weight (14.4 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm, 140 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, 360 mm, 420 mmI/O Ports include: 1x Audio/Mic, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C, and a Qi Wireless Charger. Drive 10 x 2.5-inch bays, 5 x 3.5-inch bays

REASONS TO BUY

Extensive cooling support +Highly modular +Wireless Qi charger

REASONS TO AVOID

Unusual power supply location -Expensive

Be quiet! It was originally known for its silent power supplies and fans. The company made a big splash in the case market and has done quite well in a short period of time since its first case launch in 2014. Because of its sleek design and enthusiast-friendly interior, one of its more recent cases, the Dark Base Pro 900, remains one of our highly recommended full towers.

The Dark Base Pro 900 has enough space to accommodate the largest motherboards and radiators up to 420mm in diameter. The case is also completely modular, with options for an inverted motherboard layout and some cool features like wireless Qi.

Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic

Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic

The best case for Razer cultists and liquid loops

SPECIFICATIONS

Mid-tower form factor
Motherboard E-ATX, ATX, M-ATX, mini-ITX supportDimensions: 17.6 x 10.7 x 17.5 inches (446 x 272 x 445 mm) 21.4 lb in weight (9.7 kg) Support for radiators: 120 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, 360 mmI/O 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 HD audio ports, and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C port Drive 6 x 2.5-inch bays, 3 x 3.5-inch bays

REASONS TO BUY

Synapse 3-compatible lighting +Ample headroom for future upgrades

REASONS TO AVOID

There are no fans.

The worst aspect of the Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic is its incomprehensible instruction manual. If you already know how to build a PC, however, putting it together shouldn’t be too difficult.
For the most part, it’s a standard tempered glass mid-tower case with a few extras to make the arduous trial and error of PC building worthwhile. For starters, it has three removable panels, one on each side and one on the front. This, of course, makes for a simple installation. Incorporating a liquid cooler in its exposed ceiling area is a simple task.
