While putting together a build, the PC case is often neglected for a better Graphics Card or some RGB memory. However, you don’t want your build underperforming due to poor airflow or not being able to fit your full-size GPU into into a cramped ITX. For choosing the best case that fits your build, we’ve got you covered.

Firstly, you’ll need to check your motherboard compatibility. While mid and full-tower cases will easily fit most motherboards, you’ll specifically need a mini-ITX or micro-ATX form factor motherboard for the respective cases. One important thing to keep in mind is that you probably don’t need a full tower case. Unless you’re building a high-end workstation with a multi-GPU setup, a mid-Tower case will do the job just fine. Also, remember to have plenty of free space for cable management. Lastly, keep a mental check of the features you want: if you’re using RGB components, whether you prefer tempered-glass or opaque panels, etc.
