Choosing the best PC cases is where someone usually starts with a new computer build. It's what will contain all your components, but it'll also be what you and others see first, so you need one that looks amazing. We've rounded up some of the best-looking full-tower PC cases right here.
- Ultimate chassis: Corsair 1000D
- Monster Mesh: Fractal Design Meshify C
- Sleek lookin': Thermaltake Core X71
- Budget pick: be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900
- Premium Water-cooling: Thermaltake Tower 900
- Budget pick: DeepCool MATREXX 55
Ultimate chassis: Corsair 1000DStaff pick
The Corsair Obsidian 1000D is ridiculous. You can install two PC builds inside, as many radiators as you can purchase, and still have room to spare. It's also very well designed but comes with a hefty price tag. If you want the ultimate chassis for PC building, this is about as good as you can get.
Monster Mesh: Fractal Design Meshify C
The Fractal Design Meshify C is a gorgeous case that allows for high levels of customization. It's not too pricey, but this monstrous case offers an impressive number of features. A Tempered glass panel, amazing water cooling support, mesh front panel, and plenty of space make it a dream for custom and modded rigs.
Sleek lookin': Thermaltake Core X71
Thermaltake almost specializes in water-cooling friendly PC cases and the Core X71 is but one solid option. You've got a front panel that can provide plenty of airflow, a tempered glass side panel to showcase everything inside, as well as a dedicated location underneath for a full radiator. It's by no means cheap, but well worth it.
Budget pick: be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900
Be quiet! made a great case with the Dark Base Pro 900 and improved on a few things with this second revision. This case almost has it all. Excellent build quality, loads of space to work with, whisper-quiet performance, tempered glass window, and a fully modular chassis.
Premium Water-cooling: Thermaltake Tower 900
If you want a unique case, but don't fancy having all your components out in the open, Thermaltake has the Tower 900 available. It can house two custom water cooling loops and tempered glass on the front and sides of the cube chassis for clearer views of everything running within. It's the step up from the Core X71.
Budget pick: DeepCool MATREXX 55
Have a tighter budget, but still need a full-tower E-ATX case? DeepCool has the MATREXX 55 with tempered glass listed at an affordable price. The best part about this chassis is it looks more premium than it is, allowing you to boast to everyone just how much more you spent on it. Full support for a 360mm radiator in the front, as well as a 280mm radiator on the top, make it ideal for custom water cooling setups too.
Go big or go home
You don't always need a full-tower case for your PC build, but whether you need the space for all your components, want to customize your rig, or just like the design, there's a case for you. A full-tower is going to be more expensive than, say, a mid-tower, but it's worth it for that modding power.
There are numerous full-tower PC cases available with many of them rocking cool designs and features. If we were to recommend one it would be the Corsair 1000D, due to the sheer scale of customization on offer. Not only does it look great, but the high levels of functionality make it well worth the price, so long as your budget can stretch to cover it.
If you're able to part with additional funds, the Thermaltake Core X71 is a beauty of a case that can easily contain a killer water-cooling setup. With ample cooling capacity, you can install high-end hardware without issue. If you have water-cooling in mind, we have a comprehensive guide of what to look for in a PC case for water-cooling?.
