Cases & PSU
PureOC will always recommend building your own computer, but we understand that isn't for everyone. iBuyPower does an excellent job selling pre-built custom PCs and we really enjoyed getting a chance to review the Element. Besides, we couldn't say no to the chance to try an Intel i7-7900X and Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti!
Azza offers a lot of case for a great price. The Storm 6000W has a good number of fans, a spacey interior, and some fun RGB lighting effects to boot. If you don't mind overlooking some minor details that can make the build experience a little harder, this chassis is a great option to consider.
Many cases focus on easy building and external gaming looks to sell to the market. In Win designed their 301 chassis to force the builder to make a beautiful, clean build. Many of their cases come with hefty price premiums, but the 301 is quite affordable. It's a great case for a SFF computer.
Budget cases usually pale in comparison to better ones. The CMT210 won't have as many features, but building in this case was one of the best experiences a buyer could have. FSP put a ton of care and attention to detail and their first case is a great option for a beginner PC.
The Cullinan was a large diamond found and it makes sense that Rosewill's case is named after it. The three tempered glass panels give it an extremely elegant look and the overall build experience was really good. The space to install graphics cards could be a bit better, but it can be worked around.
The PSU is extremely important to a computer, yet it can also be hard to budget for in the build. The Rosewill Valens offers Gold efficiency to help with quality, but has an attractive price point as well. The semi-modular design is great and while the fan can be noticeable, the performance is solid.
