Buying a PC Case

A PC case, also known as a chassis or tower, is the outer shell that holds the internal components and protects them from physical intrusion and dust. A good PC case must fit the motherboard and other major components, and it should provide adequate front I/O, decent cooling, and enough space for storage. Many cases come with additional mounts for fans and other accessories. Some cases are fully enclosed, with limited ventilation and a somewhat closed feel, while others are open frame or semi-enclosed (allowing for freer airflow and possibly better cooling).

Case Size
One of the biggest things to consider when buying a pc case is its size. There are several different standard case sizes, based on motherboard form-factors: Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX and E-ATX. A good rule of thumb is that the larger the case, the more likely it will be to fit your build’s components.

Other factors to take into account are features and aesthetics. Most modern cases feature configurable RGB lighting and a range of other options for enhancing the overall look of your computer. Some cases even have removable panels to allow for custom tempered glass or acrylic panels.

More practical extras include easy cable management. Left unchecked, power cables and other connectors can quickly turn a computer into a rat’s nest. A few simple tricks, such as angled motherboard tray cut-outs and smart cable routing holes can help keep everything neat and tidy. pc case
