Cooler Master NR400

With the recent surge in high-end mITX and mATX motherboards, builders are moving to more compact cases. Generally, the trade-off between full-sized ATX and mATX cases is less room for cooling solutions resulting in higher system temperatures. Cooler Master’s new case, the NR400, offers a compact chassis that has been designed with cooling performance in mind. The NR400’s body consists of all steel construction, a mesh front panel, removable magnetic dust filter on the top and also has the option for one 5.25” drive bay up front. Despite its smaller form factor, the NR400 has ample room cooling hardware with it supporting a 280mm radiator up top, 280mm up front and a 120mm at the back. The NR400 is also gentle on your wallet coming in at an MSRP of only $59.99.

Shopping for a case can be one of the hardest pieces to buy when starting a new build. The manufacturers these days do not make it easy for us when it comes to this. Features such as tempered glass, PSU shroud, and even RGB can all become deciding factors when shopping. On top of the features, you have to factor in the price, with added features adds added cost. The DIYPC TRIO-RGB-GT has premium features for a not premium price tag. Coming in at $109.99 this may be your next pc case.

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.
