Gaming PC cases
Choosing a PC case can be a daunting task. Once you've finished choosing the right size, there are a lot of other features to look at. Not only should it visually match your gaming setup, but it should also allow you to easily install all of your hardware.
Tip from SB Supply: Make sure the PC case has enough room to accommodate additional fans if necessary. (Read more about this at the bottom of the page).
How to choose a PC case for gaming?
Good ventilation for your PC
Although some PC cases may seem interesting at first glance, they can be poor choices for those who want to use high quality hardware. Good ventilation is essential for any PC. Especially for PC gamers who often push their hardware to the limit. Restricted airflow causes overheating, which in turn causes thermal failure.
Cooling systems for PCs: fan and water cooling
If you plan to use cooling systems, your PC case must have the necessary openings to make installation easier. Moreover, not all cases are suitable for liquid cooling systems of all sizes. If you have already bought your cooling system, you should check with which cooling components your PC case is compatible. On the technical specifications page you will find the size of the supported cooling system for each PC case.
Choose the right size of the graphics card
This is less and less of a problem nowadays, because graphic cards are getting smaller and the housings are getting bigger. Still, it is possible that your graphics card is too big to fit into the PC case you bought. Fortunately, there is an easy way to check whether your graphics card will fit. Each datasheet contains a specification that indicates the maximum size of the graphics card that the chassis will support.
Cable management for gamers
An enclosure with excellent cable management capabilities makes the design cleaner and creates more space to play your favourite games. This not only makes your hardware look nice and clean, but also improves your experience with installation and modification. Separate slots for hiding and routing cables and a removable backplate on the case are hugely useful features when managing your cables.

Transparent PC case for gaming
A PC case with a tempered glass casing looks great. Until you start installing your hardware. Unless you're willing to spend a lot of time managing and hiding cables, tempered glass panels aren't that sensible. So make sure you have the possibility to easily and quickly hide your cables inside the PC case. A transparent PC case remains of course beautiful to look at!
PC case with RGB lighting
For many gamers it can't be enough, RGB lighting. A component that you see shining in almost every game setup. The PC cases with RGB lighting are very popular. And that is for a good reason of course. The built-in, adjustable RGB lighting takes the game out of the screen and turns your room into a true gaming arena!
PC enclosures with enough ports
Do you need dedicated USB or audio ports on the front of your PC case? Then make sure you check the port options supported by the front panel of the chassis. From the latest USB standard to the much-loved 3.5mm audio jack, you should find exactly what you need among the many options available for PC cases.
