Well, you might have worked hard and is finally ready to build your all-new Gaming Setup. Now, one of the most important things about any Gaming Setup is the Cabinet. As this is the first thing that grabs everyone’s attention on a “Gaming PC”. You might have the best components, but if your Cabinet is not good looking, then it won’t look pleasing and so-called “Gaming Setup”. 

Now, if you go out on the Internet looking for Best Gaming Cabinets, then the chances are that you will not be able to make a choice. This is simply because there are a lot of options out there for Gaming Cabinets. Some of them are pretty good, while others are just sponsored to look good if that makes sense. Anyways, today, in this post, we would be taking a look at Top 5 Best PC cases for your next Gaming builds. Now if that sounds interesting, let us top into it. Should we?

Top 5 Best PC cases for your next Gaming build

Wait! Before we jump in and take a look at the list, we just wanna mention that none of these cases o cabinets are being sponsored. These are just our personal picks for the Best PC cases for your next gaming build. With that being clear, that being said, let us now take a look at our first cabinet. Should we?

1. NZXT H200 (Mini ITX)

If you are out there looking for a good Mini ITX Cabinet for your new Gaming PC, then you should definitely take a look at the NZXT H200. Unlike most of the Mini ITX Cases, this one is not covered and does look attractive. There is a glass panel on the side which exposes what components you put inside your Gaming Rig. The Cabinet comes in different colours, including black, black-white, black-red, and black-blue. Here is a quick specification chart for the NZXT H200:

FormatMini ITX
Dimensions210 x 334 x 372 mm
ColourBlack

Black-red
Black-blue
MaterialMetal
Fan Mounts2x Front (120mm/140mm)
1x Rear (120mm)
1x Top (120mm)
Radiator Mounts2x Front (120mm)
1x Rear (120mm)
Ports2x USB 3.0
1x 3.5mm Audio Output
1x 3.5mm Audio Input

The cabinet comes with 2 fans inside which is a cherry on the top. Now, we would recommend you put some RGB in the cabinet to give it more premium and Gaming Setup look and feel. This is the best option for Mini ITX Cabinets at the moment. 

Pros: 

  • Beautiful design and comes in different colour options.
  • Sturdy build quality.
  • Several fan and radiator mounts. 
  • Looks clean and minimal.

Cons:

  • Not too compact unlike other Mini ITX Cases.
  • A bit costly. 

2. Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1 (Micro ATX)

Coming up next, we have the Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1 which is another great Gaming Cabinet for those who are looking out for the Micro ATX cases for their builds. Now, we don’t think that any list of best Gaming Cases can be completed without a case from Cooler Master. We are saying this because this company comes up with some of the coolest and best-looking cases for PC builds. So is the Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1. Let us now take a look at the Quick Specification chart. Should we?

FormatMicro ATX
Dimensions456 x 208 x 381mm
ColourBlack
Fan Mounts2x Front (120mm)
1x Rear (120mm)
Radiator Mounts1x Front (240mm)
1x Rear (120mm)
Ports1x USB 3.0
1x USB 2.0
1x 3.5mm Audio Output
1x 3.5mm Audio Input

The case has a transparent tempered glass side panel and a black-tinted semi-transparent front which looks pretty sick with RGBs. Now, though there is no denying the fact that this case looks pretty sick. We cannot deny the fact that it does not have the best Airflow. So if you prefer airflow over looks, then you should take a look at our next pick. 

Pros:

  • Sleek and Sick Look. 
  • Turns out to be great with RGB and Fans. 
  • Pretty Affordable. 

Cons: 

  • Does not have the best airflow. 

3. NZXT H400 (Micro ATX) 

NZXT H400 is another great Micro ATX cabinet for gaming enthusiasts out there. This case combines the best looks along with a better airflow which results in a great pick overall. Now, this case has a pretty neat and clean design. There is a glass panel to the side which exposes the components and looks pretty sick. The case comes in different colours and with extra fan and radiator mounts. That being said, here is a quick specification chart for the NZXT H400 case:

FormatMicro ATX

1x Rear (120mm)

As you can see this case offers a lot. The airflow is great, looks good and has extra fan mounts. Also, the case is pretty compact and looks pretty clean on the desk. Now, the reason why this case might not be the pick for you is because of it’s price. It costs almost twice as Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1. 

Pros: 

  • Compact and Clean Design. 
  • Great Airflow and Cooling.
  • Comes with extra fan mounts. 

Cons:

As you can already see in the Image, the case looks pretty damn cool. The case has tempered glass exterior along with three bundled RGB fans to the front which caters to a gaming look. Now, of course, we do understand, you don’t only need looks, but also the cooling, well this case does that too pretty well. Here is a quick overview of the Specifications of this case.

Pros:

  • Looks pretty good with tempered glass exterior. 
  • Comes with Bundled RGB fans.

5. Thermaltake Level 20 GT (EATX) 

Thermaltake Level 20 GT is undoubtedly the most beautiful, insane and the most expensive Gaming Cabinet on our list. Now, since you are building an EATX Gaming RIG, then we assume that the budget is not an issue for you. But if it is, then you might need to look somewhere else since this is not the budget-friendly option. That being said, this huge case has a pretty appealing design with three beautiful RGB Ring fans. Here is a quick specification chart for the same:

FormatEATX
Dimensions580x294x592mm

Now, this case can support some really insane cooling. So if you had a doubt about the cooling, then we would like you to get rid of any such thought since this cabinet has some serious potential. Now, this cabinet is a bit heavy which can be a dealbreaker for some. 

Pros: 

  • Premium and Sleek Design.
  • Good Quality case with RGB RING Fans. 
  • Great Cooling.
  • Multiple Fan and Radiator Mounts. 

Cons: 

  • Expensive.
