I'm just a small time guy working a normal job as a physician assistant. My passion is building PCs and testing/reviewing PC hardware.

Thermaltake Versa H23 Computer Case

Hi everyone, Will here. Today, I am going to do a quick review of Thermaltake’s Versa H23 ATX Mid Tower PC case.

This case is the epitome of budget case coming in around $40 but does not feel much like a “budget case.” Looking at what you get with this case doesn’t tell the whole story but does shed a little light. Again, this is an ATX Mid Tower case and is black in color. The case does not come with a power supply included which isn’t a big deal because most respectable computer cases do not come with power supplies. The case includes 2 external 5.25” bays, 3 internal 2.5” bays, and 3 internal 3.5” bays. The case is compatible with ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini ITX motherboards. The front panel has USB 3.0 support and you can install a graphics card up to 12.4 inches. The case is 16.89”x8.19”x19.29”.

Thermaltake Versa H23 Specifications

This case is ideal for those of us who want to build our own computers, especially those of us wanting build on a budget. This case will afford you the option of high-end hardware and expansion from a preinstalled 120mm rear exhaust case fan to the the nice size that allows for expansion into the liquid cooling realm. There are ample ventilation options, cleanable air filters, and perforate mesh bezel to help keep your system cool and in my opinion, most importantly, dust free. The case has a manageable frame size an offers extensive customization options for your computer and/or gaming system. The case offers tool-free drive bays which minimizes the hassles of installing or removing the 3.5” and 5.25” drive bays. The front panel offers fast data transfer through the USB 3.0 port and a standard SB 2.0 port as well as an HD microphone jack, HD headset jack, and direct access when needed. As stated before, you get one preinstalled 120mm rear exhaust fan and you can add 2 additional 120mm case fans to optimize ventilation; both offer a dust filter.

So, as can be seen, this is absolutely a budget case and should probably be reserved for budget hardware. A good fit for this system would be a Pentium G4560, a locked i5 processor, or a Ryzen 3 1200 processor. Pair the intel processors with an H270 or B250 motherboard and 2133MHz RAM and pair the Ryzen with an A320 or a B350 (if you want to do a mild overlock for a little more performance) and some 2400MHz RAM. I’d use a budget hard drive, in this case, the Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB, 7200 RPM hard drive. Then, add the GTX 1050 with a 450w power supply and you have a reasonably priced, budget gaming PC.



My Thoughts and Conclusion

Overall, this case is budget but doesn’t really have a budget feel. For the price, you are getting a lot of great features for not a lot of money. This case is near the top of best budget cases and I absolutely recommend this case for those gaming enthusiasts looking to build a budget PC or a PC with mid range components.

To buy or not to buy?

Would you buy this case if you were building a budget gaming PC?
