Enthusiasts spend hours picking parts, but too many people give too little thought to another vital component: their case.
That’s a shame, because cases are important: a good case can make a system easier to build, offer more room for extra components and make your PC run with better temperatures and less noise. And let’s not forget the aesthetics, either – a good case can make your rig look stunning.
We’ve got a huge range of the best computer cases at Overclockers UK – here are some of our favourites.
Bringing competition to the high-end of to the market , Raijintek has launched two new E-ATX size chassis – The Raijintek Asterion Plus & The Asterion Classic. Straying further and further away from the "Transformer-esque" theme of earlier products and keeping more in-line with the elegant aesthetics set by their most recent designs, Raijintek's latest chassis certainly catch the eye – looking rather distinct while adopting more modern design traits, the visual transition from "Gamer With Attitude" to "Minimalistic Sophistication" is evident.
Making use of dual transparent side-panels with the only differing factor between the two models being a hinged-door – with acrylic windows on the Plus, and a tempered glass construction on the Asterion Classic – both chassis do well to stand-out amongst themselves all the while catering to personal preferences.
Streacom's approach to simplistic design and user-friendly functionality continues to remain evident in their latest chassis – The BC1 and the DB4.
Visually striking yet fully-functional within its design, Streacom's BC1 was designed and engineered directly for technical professionals as well as the overclocking community. When setting out to create the ultimate Open Benchtable, Streacom focused its efforts on answering one simple question; How can we design a fully functional benchtable that is also 100% portable?
