Every enthusiast’s requirements are different. Some might be space limited, others will want as much air-flow as possible and some of you love the sound of silence. Here is a shortlist of the best chassis in the market right now – as determined by KitGuru Labs’ testing. Our current choice for ‘BEST OF…’ is at the top, but all 5 should be considered.

Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P Max

It really is a breeze installing a system in the NR200P Max, this build was by far the quickest small form factor build I have ever done and it was an enjoyable experience too. Usually, there are parts of a small form factor build that can be annoying like routing and managing cables, installing graphics cards and CPU coolers in the tight spaces etc, not with the NR200P Max. It is uncanny how there seems to be so much space inside such a small chassis.

Lian Li O11 Air Mini

Lian Li O11 Air Mini supports a motherboard up to E-ATX, however it is much more interesting when you work with a smaller Micro-ATX as that allows you to open up the top of the case for cooling hardware.

Phanteks Eclipse P200A D-RGB

We confidently predict that once you have seen the Eclipse perforated steel front panel in action you will never settle again for a case with a choked front panel. The Phanteks Eclipse P200A D-RGB came close to spoiling our warm feelings as it has a number of familiar features, however it is a large 30 litre chassis that uses a Mini-ITX motherboard.

Montech Air 100 ARGB

Montech Air 100 ARGB is a microATX case that comes with four 120mm ARGB fans, a tempered glass window and the promise of  great cooling to earn that Air name. That sounds like a decent list of features, however the cherry on the cake is that Montech Air 100 ARGB is cheap. Really, REALLY cheap.
