the White PC Case

For the past few years, minimalism has been all the rage in design choices. Just look at Google’s updated design language. They’ve ditched Material Design and gone with lots of white space. You, too, can harness this modern, calming look with a white PC case for your computer.

If you’re a gamer, you might find it odd to deck out your build with a white computer case. But why not ditch the glowing greens of the Alienware rigs that every gamer has and go with something unique? Or, if you need a subtle, mature look for your home office, a white case would do the trick. Best of all, there are plenty to choose from.

We rounded up the ten best white cases that you can buy.

Finding a white case for every need took a bit of effort, but you’re sure to find one that suits your needs from our list.

 

Corsair Crystal 460X RGB

The best white computer case you can buy is the stunning Corsair Crystal 460X RGB. This mid-tower case uses blanched tempered glass held in place by the white metal frame. Three onboard fans keep your computer cool, and red LED fan lights really bring out the build. You can add liquid cooling as well if that’s your thing.

We found that this beauty looks and feels premium. We wanted to display this case for all to see, that’s how good it looks.

Corsair Crystal 460X RGB

Pros:

  • Premium build quality
  • Mid-size tower fits a full-size build
  • Liquid cooling support
  • Excellent airflow through the case
Cons:

  • Cable management is lacking
  • Picks up fingerprints and scuffs easily

The Bottom Line

This PC case is our favorite of the year. There are a few problems, with poor cable management being one of them, but all-in-all you won’t find a better-looking white desktop case. Which is why we chose it as the best white case of the year.

NZXT H500i ATX

NZXT H500i ATX

Next up is the NZXT H500i ATX. This is more of a cube case than a traditional PC case. There’s a huge shaded tempered glass panel on the front which gave us a nice view of its internals.
One thing we loved about this case was its noise reduction system. The built-in cooling system will optimize air flow to create the most silent fan configuration it can find. However, because it’s possible to add up to three more fans, this won’t always work.

In addition to the stylish look, there’s a couple of LED light strips inside, which give it a nice glow. In our review, we found this case to be capable and good-looking, and it tops our best list.

Pros:

  • Unique design
  • Excellent cable management
  • Runs quiet
  • Innovative internal tech to optimize fan speed
Cons:

  • Design isn’t for everybody
  • Adding more fans ruins quiet-running tech
  • GPU placement puts GPU fans against power supply wall

The Bottom Line

You’ll want to give the NZXT H500i ATX some serious consideration. It looks, unlike any other computer case we’ve seen and comes loaded with advanced functionality. This is one great case!

In Win 101 White ATX

Third on our list of the of 2019 is the In Win 101 White ATX. If you want a simpler, no-nonsense case with strong minimalist elements, then this is the case for you. We found the In Win 101 to be sturdy, functional, and no-nonsense.
The In Win has a tempered glass front panel which snaps easily into an all-white metal frame. If you want to use this for gaming or intensive video editing, then you can install up to six fans. We loved that this case mounts the GPU in a special holder above the rest of the build, which reduces vibrations and keeps it away from all other heat sources.

In Win 101 White ATX

Finally, the addition of a single blue LED strip along the front corner gave this case a touch of modernity.

Pros:

  • Excellent build quality
  • Pure minimalism design
  • Up to six fans
  • Excellent GPU stability
  • Amazing air flow
Cons:

  • Poor cable management
  • Plastic feet look cheap
  • No fans included

The Bottom Line

The In Win 101 and the 102 is a great, pure-minimalist case that manages to remain classy yet no-nonsense at the same time. In our review, we found this had some of the best airflows of all the cases, which makes it one of the best cases of the year.

MasterCase H500P mesh white ATX

Next up is the white MasterCase H500P, which we consider a dream case for any hardcore gamer. This beast looks awesome. It reminds us of the set of the first Death Star. White bars and black mesh make up the frame, while a shaded tempered glass panel shows off its internals. And in true Star Wars fashion, two huge LED lights light up the massive 200-millimeter fans in the face.

MasterCase H500P mesh white ATX

We also loved the clean the cable management of this case, thanks to the PSU shroud and included cable covers. You can add up to 360-millimeters of liquid cooling as well.

Pros:

  • Awesome look and build
  • Massive cooling fans
  • Great cable management
Cons:

  • Plastic components feel cheap
  • Reduced air flow
  • Tempered glass gets hot to the touch

The Bottom Line

In our review, we found this case was the best choice for gamers. If you’re a Star Wars fan, then this is probably the best computer case of all time.

Phanteks PH-EC30PTG_WT Eclipse

Fifth in our search is the PH-EC30PTG “Eclipse” from Phanteks. We have to be honest – we were expecting a little more from Phanteks, given their lead position in the PC case market. However, when it came to their case, we found it rather plain and uninspiring. Still, the Eclipse is high-quality enough to make it one of the best of the year.

Phanteks PH-EC30PTG_WT Eclipse

This case is full-metal, with clean lines and no LED lighting or large vents. There is a single half-panel tempered glass window. Where the case really shines is inside. For example, there’s a magnetic dust filter, a 120-millimeter fan, plenty of card support, and decent cable management.

Pros:

  • Excellent internal configuration
  • Good cable management
  • All-metal construction
Cons:

  • Plain-looking
  • Difficult to take apart and put together

The Bottom Line

We found that this case performed brilliantly, despite its lack of any inspiring design choices. In true Phantek fashion, the case is made with high-grade materials and has well-thought-out internals.

Fractal Design FD-CA-MESH-C-WT-TGC

The Fractal Design made our list thanks to its unique design and awesome airflow capabilities. While the frame itself is white, and there’s a large tempered glass panel on the front, the rest of the case consists of multiple shades of black. For instance, there’s a huge two-toned black mesh panel on the side. It’s striking and different.

Fractal Design FD-CA-MESH-C-WT-TGC

Another feature we loved about this case was that you can fit a full build into this mid-sized ATX. However, you may find that cable management is a little tight. This is a case for a home office and not a GPU-intensive user.

Pros:

  • Stunning two-tone black mesh panel
  • Great air flow
  • Lots of interior room
Cons:

  • Whites are a little off-color
  • Room only for 2 fans
  • The bottom dust filter is known to rattle

The Bottom Line

If it wasn’t for that awesome mesh grill, this would be a plain-looking case. That being said, this Fractal Design stands out with a unique look thanks to the two black tones which complement the white frame. It’s definitely a keeper for 2019!

DeepCool EarlCase RGB WH

Next up is the DeepCool “EarlCase” gaming case. This computer case is a little plain, except for the way it bulges out with clean, hard lines. Also, the white paint features a powdered finish, which makes it scratch and stain resistant.

Because this is a gaming case, you’ll find a standard 120-millimeter RGB fan at the front and two more at the rear. There’s one RGB light strip on the front, however, you can add two more if you like. Also, you can add AIO liquid cooling.

DeepCool EarlCase RGB WH

Aside from that, this is a rather plain-looking case that doesn’t come with many bells and whistles.

Pros:

  • Excellent cooling
  • Plenty of space to build your PC
  • Scratch resistant
Cons:

  • Plain looking
  • Can only use RGB fans and light strips

The Bottom Line

If you want a case that you can keep tucked away where it won’t bother anyone then, this is the case for you. However, this case has fantastic cooling possibilities, and gamers love it.

RaidMax Monster II SE

Eighth on our list is the RaidMax Monster II “SE”, or Special Edition. At first glance, you would think this is the most boring white plastic box we could choose for this, but then when you see the tempered glass panel and the stunning blue LED lighting system, you change your mind.

We loved this PC case. In our review, we found the two 140-millimeter fans with LED lights to be the best size for a decent case. Also, there is amazing cable management here. RaidMax has doubled the space for your cables, keeping everything neat and clean.

RaidMax Monster II SE

Pros:

  • Excellent cable management
  • Awesome LED lighting
  • Great fans
  • Great tempered glass panel
Cons:

  • Case is a little on the boring side
  • Two USB ports isn’t enough

The Bottom Line

Thanks to the glitzy LED lighting and crisp glass panel, this computer case looks stunning. However, we found that the rest of the case was incredibly plain and plasticky-looking.

VIVO Micro-ATX “SMART” case

Next is the VIVO Micro-ATX SMART case. Because not everybody is rocking a full build, we decided to find the best white chasis for micro builds. We were lucky, because this case is excellent. Despite being built for MicroATX and MiniITX boards, it comes with two 120-millimeter LED-lit fans, and ports for up to four more.

Also, there are four expansion slots and two USB ports to play with. We also loved the striking tempered glass “window” on the side. Instead of being a full panel, this resembles a traditional framed window, which gives it a sleek, modern look.

Pros:

  • Sleek, modern design
  • Excellent cooling
  • The best micro-build case you can get
Cons:

  • Glass window is very reflective in light
  • Poor cable management

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking at a micro build, then the VIVO “SMART” case is possibly the best all-around micro case. When we reviewed it, we loved its look, and it comes with plenty of cooling.

HBT Honbon Tech Case Turbin 700 Midium Tower

Finally, we chose the HBT Honbon Tech “Turbin 700 Midium” case to round out the year’s best list. During our review, we found that this case has some of the best ventilation you can get in a PC case, and it’s perfect for gamers.

HBT Honbon Tech Case Turbin 700 Midium Tower

There’s plenty of room on the inside and awesome cable management. The slots support both NVIDIA and AMD Radeon cards. We weren’t big fans of the way the staggered vents looked from the outside, but when you consider that you can fit up to six fans in there, it starts to make sense.

Pros:

  • Lots of room to build
  • Great cable management
  • Can support up to six fans
Cons:

  • Weird look

The Bottom Line

This is a roomy case that is easy to build into it. It doesn’t come with any fans or LED lighting, and the design of this white case is a little odd.

What You Need To Know

When you’re setting out to buy yourself a white case, you should follow the same buying rules you would for any case. That is, what size is it, does it have enough cooling, and does it match the rest of your build or even your office. Remember, you want a case that you’ll love to show off, but which will also keep your computer running smooth.

What size do I need?

Choose your PC case based on what you’re fitting inside. If you’re gaming, then in most scenarios you’ll want a full case or at least a mid-tower which can accommodate a full-sized motherboard. If you’re going with a basic home office processor, then a mid-tower will do fine.

How much cooling do I need?

Cooling is one of the most important aspects of a PC, especially if you’re going to be gaming or editing graphics and video. In those cases, you’ll want a case with the option to add liquid cooling. For home office, you’ll want something with at least two fans.

What about cables?

One issue we found while we reviewed these cases was that many had poor cable management. You want to make sure that your cables are tucked away, and aren’t blocking airflow. Also, the last thing you want is a cable to snag on a board and yank it out of its slot. Make sure whichever case you choose has decent cable management.

Our Final Thoughts

Hands down, the best white computer case for most people is the Corsair Crystal 460X RGB. However, it does have some drawbacks with cable management, so you may want to consider if that’s an issue for you or not. All in all, the ten cases we chose all have decent cooling, a stunning white design, and most are enough for gamers and home offices. We even found a micro-case, if that’s your thing!
