Best Computer Cases 2016

Updated on November 17, 2015

The computer case is basically just a box into which all your hardware is installed. Having said that matching the right box to the right computer user can make quite a difference in your overall experience. In best computer cases 2016 we are going to look at what makes a good computer case and then we are going to review some of the best selling computer cases on the market.

What to look for in a computer case:

  • A good computer case is a mix of good looks and functionality. Get one that appeals to your sense of style.
  • One big job a computer case does is to move air through your PC, cooling it. 4 80 mm fans is standard. If you get something with fewer larger fans, it will make less noise while providing enough cooling.
  • If you are going to be tinkering with the hardware frequently, get a case that can be accessed without the use of tools.
  • Pay attention to where the USB and sound ports are located. Having these ports located conveniently makes a big difference.

      It's far cheaper to build a GOOD PC than to buy a GOOD ready made PC.

      It is still far cheaper to build a PC than to buy one ready made.

      Good "compute!" Informative hub. Thanks Although not currently planning to use a new case. You have saved some research time when I will be in the mood to purchase and upgrade. I remember when you could build cheaper than you could buy computers...
