MetallicGear Neo-G Mini

Over the past few years, we have seen an emerging trend of people opting for mITX cases over larger cases like mid towers. This size factor typically appeals to people looking to build a media server or a mid-range workstation. Lately, we see that PC builders are making mITX builds for portability for events like Dreamhack or just having the challenge of seeing how much power they can cram into a tight space. Entering into the mITX space is MetallicGear with one of its debut cases the NEO G MINI which comes in a compact size of 355mm (H) x 190mm (W) X 375mm (D). Other stand out features include a vertical GPU mount with riser cable, tempered glass front and side panel with stylized silk-screening, and all steel chassis with sandblasted aluminum body. Despite these high-end features MetallicGear still manages to keep the NEO G MINI at an affordable MSRP of $80.

AZZA Ragnarok 801 Dual system ATX ITX Case

More and more we are seeing case manufacturers design their cases to incorporate more than one system in 1 case, AZZA decided they wanted to jump on board this trend as well. You may ask yourself “Why would I want a PC case that can fit more than one system?” Well, if you are a streamer, you most likely would like one PC that would be your main gaming PC and one PC that would do all your heavy lifting and legwork like encoding, broadcasting, ETC. Maybe you’re a media buff that likes to have all your movies, pictures, etc. on one NAS (network attached storage) and you’ve run out of desk space for 2 separate PC towers so you build two pcs into one tower that can handle both of your tasks needed, without having 2 towers to place on a desk or walk around. Meet the Ragnarok 801 by AZZA, this full-size PC tower can fit two full systems. The main system can handle motherboards up to E-ATX and on the PSU shroud, there are mounting points for a smaller ITX system. We will take a look at the specs further down the review.

Cooler Master MB530P

More and more, we are starting to see cases that include multiple tempered glass panels. This is usually reserved for cases in the $150+ price range but Cooler Master has extended its MasterBox line to include the MB530P, which sports 3 tempered glass panels for an MSRP of only $109.99. Having so much tempered glass means everything is on show and you must take extra care with your cable management. Thankfully the MB530P has included such features like a full PSU shroud, removable cable cover and silkscreened back panel to help with this. In addition to these cable management features the MB530P also includes lighting with a built in RGB controller and 3 pre-installed 120mm ARGB AB front fans. With all these aesthetic enhancing elements it should be almost effortless to create a great looking build that shines through those tempered glass panels.

InWin 915

To succeed in the market of high-end cases, you must create a case that is feature rich and highly unique. Over the years, InWin has been a pioneer in this market space with cases like the: S-Frame, D-Frame, H-Tower and now we can add the InWin 915 to that list. The 915 does away with the generic box shape of most cases and replaces it with curved 3mm anodized aluminum panels. Enhancing the curved panels are tempered glass side panels with the back panel being stylistically silkscreened with the company's name. In addition to its beautiful aesthetics, the InWin 915 also includes some unique features such as: motorized top ventilation, expandable PSU bay, and system failure indicator LEDs at the front. Coming in at an MSRP of $449.99, the InWin is definitely priced as a high-end case which is quite justified with its intensive list of features and stylish looks.

But, Cooler Master has gone the extra mile with the H500M and added tempered glass panels to the top and back-side as well as added ability to easily change out the front mesh panel to one made of tempered glass. Other features include: a fully removable PSU shroud, additional cables for ARGB support and a GPU support arm.

Cooler Master MasterBox TD500L

Cooler Master is a staple in the world of DIY computer building.  One of the most important decisions to make about a computer build is what chassis you are going to use.  It dictates a lot about the contents and limitations of a system -  motherboard form factor, GPU height/length, tower cooler size, and watercooling options just to name a few.
