In this article, we will look at what are the best white PC cases. In general, cases are extremely subjective and a lot of things should be taken into consideration. I’ll try and break down the most important features below, but I want to be clear that it’s best to look at your requirements, and then narrow down cases from there so that you ensure the case fits the actual hardware you’re using!
Important Case Considerations
Before we look at what are the best white PC cases, I want to point out a few things that you should be aware of so that you’re making an informed decision:
- Motherboard Compatability: The case you purchase will have specific motherboard compatibility (generally, E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX, or Mini-ITX). The case that you purchase must support the motherboard you own or purchased.
- HDD/SSD Trays: The case you purchase will have a maximum number of HDDs or SSDs that it can hold. While I recommend purchasing a NAS and utilizing it as network-attached storage to avoid adding extra hard drives to PCs, if you intend on adding multiple HDDs or SSDs, the case you purchase must support them. If you want a case that holds many hard disks, please check out our article on the best NAS cases!
- Size: If you’re purchasing a case that must fit in or on a desk, ensure that the dimensions will fit.
- Case Aesthetics: This is purely subjective for everyone as some people will prefer one case over another from a looks perspective, but if the requirements above are met, you should purchase a case that you like!
There are other items that you’ll have to take into consideration depending on your requirements, but these are the most important in my opinion.
There are also detailed statistics that you can find online that will measure things like cooling efficiency, but this article will focus on the specifications of these cases.

What Are the Best White PC Cases?
Below are a few of our favorite options, but as mentioned above, there are many important considerations that must be taken into consideration outside of the looks of the case.
With newer NVMe drives being attached to Motherboards directly, 3.5″ or 2.5″ HDD/SDD mounting options are less important, but regardless, ensure that the case fits the hardware you’re looking to install before purchasing a case!
The Corsair 4000D is a tempered glass case with a great aesthetic and some impressive features.
This is one of the rare devices that supports E-ATX, but truthfully, very few desktop users will be using E-ATX. However, if you’re one of those people, this is a great option. It also offers six total fan locations which means you can keep this case extremely cool if needed (for larger GPUs or more powerful builds).
Lian Li O11 Dynamic
The Lian Li O11 Dynamic is one of the best-looking cases on this list and is an extremely popular selection.
This case is just awesome. I don’t really know how to say it any other way. Case aesthetics as mentioned above, are subjective, but the cube form factor, ability to hold six total HDDs or SSDs, and the sheer number of fans you can use (nine total), means that this case will work for almost anyone.
Phanteks Eclipse G360A
The Phanteks Eclipse G360A is an awesome-looking case with great airflow potential due to its mesh front panel.
This case is relatively new and offers tremendous cooling from the mesh front. It’s a relatively small form factor (for what it offers) and should hold almost any GPU, though there are a few that might cause issues with clearance.
NZXT H510 Elite
The NZXT H510 Elite is one of my favorite cases from an aesthetic point of view. It features a tempered glass front and side panel in a small form factor.
This is the case I own and I absolutely love it. Ironically, I purchased it when the NZXT H5 Elite was released which truthfully, is a better overall case from a cooling perspective (this case is NOT great in that, but I just love how this case looks and decided to use it for that reason. You might run into GPU clearance issues, but most should fit.
Fractal Design Meshify C
The Fractal Design Meshify C is a compact case with great airflow due to the mesh front.
Unlike the NZXT H510i Elite above, this is a great case from a cooling perspective because of the mesh front. Obviously, cooling depends on what you intend to use as you can improve the cooling performance of most cases, but the mesh front really plays a big part in that.
Conclusion & Final Thoughts
The truth about cases is that their aesthetics are extremely subjective and everyone will prefer a different option. However, there are some core features that each case has that are extremely important. As long as the motherboard, power supply, and hard drives will fit, aesthetics, dimensions, IO, and performance should be the next priorities considered.
However, since most cases are similar, you generally will be able to work with any of the options above. I also want to point out that these are my personal favorites and there are tons of cases that you can purchase.
