The best PC case choice for most is a mid-tower, which will provide the space for components while not taking up too much room around your desk. Deciding on the perfect case can be time-consuming, so we've rounded up some of the best mid-tower PC cases to help you get started.
A beautiful mid-tower case with plenty of room for airflow, we awarded it a perfect score in our NZXT H510 Elite review for being practically flawless. Easily the best mid-tower PC case available today.
This gorgeous case can showcase all your components from the side, and everything will be kept cool with adequate airflow and plenty of filtering. It differs from the H510 Elite by having an opaque front panel and cutting out the RGB fans.
In our be quiet! Pure Base 500DX review, we found the Pure Base 500DX to be a solid mid-tower PC case. Its huge mesh front panel keeps things cool with air intake and shows off your components, with plenty of cable management options.
Yet another variation of the top case, we took a look in our NZXT H510 Flow review, and this budget model won yet another perfect score. As the name might suggest, it's designed for optimal performance with air-cooled builds.
Razer often seems to be the high-end pick, and for a good reason. Our Razer Tomahawk review showed that while it's not perfect, this premium mid-tower PC case boasts a subtle yet beautiful design and makes for a stress-free build.

Choosing the perfect mid-tower case for your next PC build depends on numerous factors. Do you need USB Type-C connectors on the front; are you planning to install a custom water-loop cooling solution; do you want to save money, time and stress by picking an easy-to-build case, throwing everything inside, and calling it a day?
NZXT goes all-in with its fantastic H510 range of mid-tower cases, with the H510 Elite coming out on top as one of the best PC cases around. It features a gorgeous, transparent tempered-glass front panel with two RGB fans mounted behind it. Alternatively, you can skip the panel and RGB by switching to the H510i to save yourself a little bit of cash, or even further to the H510 Flow for a stunning budget pick.
