1.NZXT H210i – CA-H210i-W1
The NZXT H210i Mini-Tower Case features a sleek and minimalistic design with plenty of helpful additions for a clean and easy build. Aside from its signature cable management bar, it also has a PSU shroud and an integrated cable management system at the back. Built for Mini-ITX systems, it supports up to one 3.5″ drive, three 2.5″ drives, and a single dual-slot graphics card.
Whether you choose to liquid cool or not, the H210i supports up to two 120/140mm fans at the front, a 120/140mm fan at the rear, and another 120/140mm fan at the top. Thanks to its tempered-glass side panel, you can show off your hardware along with any custom LED lighting. This “i” version of the H210 case includes NZXT’s CAM-powered Smart Device, which is a fan and RGB LED lighting control unit, and an integrated addressable LED strip.back to menu ↑

Thermaltake expands its Core P Series by adding the Core P1 TG Mini ITX wall-mount, tempered-glass chassis to the lineup. The Core P1 TG Mini ITX boasts open frame panel design with a 5mm thick tempered glass panel to protect the components and allows users to show off the hardware inside.
It also supports the latest PC hardware, AIO and DIY liquid cooling solutions, and has the flexibility of building horizontal/vertical system by its multiple placement design. The Core P1 TG Mini ITX makes a stunning display for high-end enthusiast builds without sacrificing performance and taking up too much desk space.back to menu ↑
I’ve been on the verge of purchasing Phanteks’ Evolv Shift ITX chassis a handful of times throughout the years, but I never did. Why? Because I didn’t ‘need’ another chassis.
If you’ve ever felt this way about a case, welcome to my life. Of course, when Phanteks told me roughly half a year ago that a version 2 was on its way, it got me all giddy, but then like so many other things in 2020, it got delayed and delayed and … you get the idea.
But now the new Evolv Shift is here, and I’m telling you, the wait was worth it for one simple reason: It appears Phanteks waited out the release of the newest GPUs to make sure they all fit in here.back to menu ↑
4.InWin A1 Plus Black Mini-ITX T
I’ve always been a fan of mini-ITX cases. I just love the idea of building a system that small which can also be pretty powerful as well. When In Win first introduced the A1 I immediately fell in love with it. Unfortunately I was not able to take a look at the original A1, but In Win has recently released the A1 Plus, which bring some minor upgrades with it.
The A1 Plus has all of the right lines, RGB lighting, a 650W power supply, and even wireless charging for your mobile device! But can something this small actually work? Is the case arranged for good airflow and cable management? Read on as we find out!back to menu ↑
5.Cooler Master NR200
The Cooler Master NR200 houses big features in a small size, and I feel like that’s an understatement. This case surprised me in so many ways, because Cooler Master in the past has been quite disappointing. However, with the NR200 and the NR200P I feel like nothing is really missing, and they have really nailed the design, the price point, and the feature set.
With this new release they have created some serious competition for the Ncase M1 and the entire experience here has been almost flawless.back to menu ↑
