What’s a good budget case for a Ryzen 5 1600 build (plan on overclocking with stock cooler)/B350 motherboard/GTX 1060/240gb SSD? I might add a HDD later on.

Flighted says:

deepcool dukase v2

Fractal Design R5 is pretty much the best thing money can buy. For oldschool guys I also recommend the Antec P183, just a great case, cheers !

Backpanel tempered glass is stupid.

Ana Sevi says:

Windows and LED were all the bloody rage in 2001-2004, including watercooling (soft tubiing mind you)… i recall, that shit actually as a 10 year old visiting computer shops with my dad. actually died down from 2004-2011.

GoldEvil911 says:

The NZXT Source 220 is a great starting case, but when you decide to eventually upgrade, don’t make the same mistake of getting something without dust filters again!

How is the DeepCool TX Mid Tower TESSERACT SW? Is it decent?

This is my case. For an ITX it has everything and more someone might need as an office-only workstation or as a highly portable and performance gaming station. Human intelligence and creativity is just astounding.

Xavier Rodriguez says:

The cheapest.

joost van den Berg says:

my first case, was cheap, sharp, plastic scratched plastic window, bad airflow, no cutout for cooling backplate and came with 1 shit fan that stopped working after 1.5 motnhs. Now i use the nzxt s340 elite and yes it is a huge upgrade but i am still not happy with this case
