Some of the most interesting computer cases available right now are mini ITX cases. Computer cases can be found in a wide variety of forms; some of them don’t even look like cases at all! Mini ITX cases are the smallest in the ATX/ITX family, and while this presents some challenges, it also brings some advantages.

Many ITX cases come in unconventional shapes and sizes, making them ideal for gamers with limited storage space. These oddly shaped containers are interesting to look at as an added bonus. Someone who has never seen a mini ITX case before is likely to be taken aback by the fact that it houses a computer.

However, there are a few drawbacks to mini ITX cases, primarily due to the close proximity of the components. To begin with, mini ITX cases are notorious for necessitating liquid cooling. In most mini ITX cases, air cooling (especially on overclocked or high-powered machines) isn’t possible without adding unnecessary bulk.

There is a dearth of products available for purchase that are designed to fit into a mini ITX case. Of course, only mini ITX motherboards will fit in a mini ITX case, but other components like video cards, coolers, power supplies, and hard drives will also have to be scaled down.

Portableness is another strong suit of mini ITX cases. The majority of these units are designed to be transported from one location to another, and thus feature a handle or other means of portability. Although mini ITX cases don’t collapse like laptops do, they’re still about as cumbersome to carry around as a small stereo.

You can fully take advantage of the mini ITX case’s compact size if you take the time to carefully choose only components that will fit inside it. To top it all off, you can expect to receive some of the most stylish cases currently available.

Thermaltake Core V1 Cube

Dimensions (in inches): 10.9 x 10.2 x 12.4.
Includes two USB-A 3.0 ports and an HDMI audio output.

The Pros:

  • Competent in a variety of areas
  • The quantity of QoL options available is unexpectedly large.
  • Incredibly inexpensive
  • Lovely, particularly in white

The Cons:

  • Basic

Our first non-rectangular chassis is the Thermaltake Core V1 Cube. The V1 Cube is not like your typical tower PC; it is longer than it is tall and about as wide as it is deep. The Core V1 is not a true cube, despite the name, but it is extremely close.

Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX Case Overview - YouTube

The Core V1 is an excellent low-cost case, despite its odd size and shape. It’s not as sturdy as a metal case because it’s mostly plastic, but that’s to be expected from a cheap one.

As an additional convenience for PC builders, the case can be set up with either a horizontal or vertical motherboard—especially welcome given the limited space afforded by some mini ITX boards.

There aren’t many decorative details on this case, but it still manages to look great. We like it because it doesn’t look like a typical computer case. Moreover, a white snow edition of the case is available, making an already striking design even more so.

The lack of fancy LEDs and extras on this case doesn’t change the fact that it’s a very flexible option. This is especially remarkable given the low cost of the case. The Core V1 Cube is the ideal small case for a wide variety of builds and configurations.

Cooler Master MasterCase H100

It measures 11.9 inches in height, 8.5 inches in width, and 12.3 inches in depth.
With its two Type-C 3.2 ports and one HD Audio jack, this device is well-connected.

The Pros:

  • There’s a RGB fan in the package.
  • Unique “boom box” design.

The Cons:

  • It’s a fair price, but not great.
  • Absence of aesthetic appeal

The Cooler Master MasterCase H100, at first glance, appears to be more of a subwoofer than a computer case. Nonetheless, we anticipate that some PC manufacturers will appreciate this style. The mesh screen Cooler Master puts on the front of the case doesn’t win any points with us, but the RBG fan in the back makes up for it.

This bag can be taken anywhere. The MasterCase, like the Core V1, is a rectangular design that helps conserve desk space, but its orientation is vertical rather than horizontal. The built-in handle makes it incredibly convenient to transport this tiny case from one location to another.

While the lack of color options for the case is disappointing, the fact that the front fan can be set to any of several different LED colors is a nice bonus. The fan is also quite sizable at 200mm, giving you a great head start on your cooling system right out of the box.

Although this case is inexpensive compared to others, the Core V1 is still the best value. The aesthetic value of the case will determine whether or not the additional cost is justified. Even though we think the Core V1 is a better buy all around, the MasterCase H100 is still a great option for those who really like it.

Phanteks Evolv Shift

Measurements (in inches): 18.5″ x 6.7″ x 10.8″
Features two USB Type-A 3.0 ports for attachments.

The Pros:

  • In a lovely case
  • First-rate components
  • Multiple permutations

The Cons:

  • Limited room available
  • Super-simple-to-topple-over Design

No one should be surprised to see Phanteks on this list, as they are a top-tier manufacturer of both compact and tower cases. The Evolv Shift is another unusual case in that it is both tall and narrow. This case can stand upright like a skyscraper, allowing you to reclaim horizontal workspace on your desk.

The case is sleek and modern in appearance, but its primary purpose is clearly not function. In addition, you’ll need to plan ahead a little more than with other mini ITX cases to ensure that everything fits snugly inside.

But because of its focus on aesthetics, the tower is a marvel to behold. Tinted tempered glass and aluminum give it a premium appearance and feel in comparison to cheap plastic. You shouldn’t have too much trouble with this case as long as you stay on top of your cooling solutions and verify your space needs.

While the exterior gives the impression of being made of aluminum, it is in fact tempered glass with a dark tint that serves as the windows into the case. We think a more appropriate name for this chassis is Stealth, not Shift.

This case can also be used in a horizontal orientation, which is useful if you tend to be clumsy or if you live with young children or pets who are constantly knocking things over. A less efficient footprint is made up for by its low profile and stability.

While it is more expensive than our other two options, this case is still a fantastic choice for those looking for a mid-range option. Moreover, we think the high-quality materials used in this chassis help to partially explain the higher cost. Moreover, the Evolv Shift is offered in a choice of two colors.

InWin A1 Plus

Size (in inches): 10.7″ x 8.8″ x 14.1″
Dual High-Speed USB Type-A, a High-Definition Audio jack, and a Mini HDMI port

The Pros:

  • Every single light
  • Beautiful all-metal frame

The Cons:

  • Perhaps too bright for some people’s tastes.
  • Expensive without reason
  • Power supply unit failure

Among our products, the InWin A1 Plus is by far the priciest, but its benefits are obvious. This alluring case comes outfitted with bright LEDs and other nice touches right off the bat.

Not only does the case have a built-in wireless charger for your phone or other device, but it also comes with three RGB fans that match the lighted base. The charging station is perched atop the chassis.

The inclusion of a wireless charger strikes us as odd (and it is, in practice), but we recognize that it may be convenient for some customers.

With that said, we don’t see this as much of an advantage because getting a cheap wireless charger is so simple now. Adding a compatible charger to any other mini ITX case wouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes.

Yet, the RGBs are unquestionably striking and distinctive. Many PC builders prefer to make their builds while focusing on only one or two colors, so you won’t often see RBGs like the ones on this case. However, this unit’s included fans and transparent base cycle through the full spectrum of rainbow colors. You can change the color of the base and the fans if the rainbow motif isn’t to your liking.

We find this case to be somewhere between novel and ridiculous. The RGB emphasis of the case may appeal strongly to some users, while others will be uninterested. If you’re willing to splurge and enjoy dazzling displays of illumination, this case is for you.

But if you want to use your own LED lights or aren’t into lighted PC builds, this case may seem unnecessary and, well, gaudy. In our opinion, this case is right on the cusp of being excessive or lacking detail.

This device has a power supply unit (PSU), but it is notoriously unreliable. We advise getting two of these cases, one for everyday use and one as a backup in case there are any problems. Unfortunately, the price of this chassis could be more justifiable if the PSU were of higher quality.

Thermaltake Core P1 TG

Dimensions are (in inches) 16.6″ x 13.1″ x 15″
Included ports include 2 USB Type-A 3.0 and 1 HD Audio.

The Pros:

  • Physical Attributes That Stand Out
  • Robust and expertly fabricated
  • Wall-mountable

The Cons:

  • Absolutely atrocious set of instructions for putting together
  • Extremely ponderous and cumbersome
  • Constraints imposed by constraints on available space

The Thermaltake Core P1 TG makes use of an open-air design, a case style at which we’ve all done a double-take. Core P1 TG (TG stands for tempered glass) is essentially bi-sided, with the two halves connected by floating metal bars. So, if you really wanted to (never do this, of course), you could put your hand inside the case while it was operating.

This case’s attractive design is only one of its many exciting features. It can also be mounted on the wall. It’s kind of like a showcase for your gear; all the parts are on full display for you and your guests to admire, and it’s safely out of the way on the wall.

While open-air cases may seem like a fun concept on paper, they call for a specific personality type to be effective in the field. For the best results, it is best to securely mount this device to a wall. We can’t explain why it is that we say this. Having this device on your desk increases the risk of a catastrophic coffee spill, which could render your entire system useless.

Although its open design is fantastic, its intended function is somewhat undermined by the case’s diminutive size. Wouldn’t it defeat the purpose of a mini ITX chassis if you have the wall space for a computer chassis and you want to show off the internal components?

However, if this is a case that strikes a chord with you, it’s best not to write it off too quickly. The price is fair considering the innovative nature of the design, and despite its heft, it is quite robust. Before purchasing, make sure you are aware of the case’s space constraints; for example, 280mm radiators will not fit.

Fractal Design Node 202

Dimensions (in inches): 14.8 x 13.0 x 3.2
Two USB Type-A 3.0 ports and one HD audio port are included.

The Pros:

  • Simple, reliable construction
  • Can be painted or otherwise personalized with relative ease.
  • Easily transportable and subtly understated

The Cons:

  • Effortless, reliable construction
  • Quick to alter color or design
  • Conveniently sized and understated

Fractal Design’s Node 202 mini ITX case is a fantastic option. For some reason, the all-black color scheme and sharp edges make it look like a VCR to us. While the form is novel, and the chassis is metal, the overall appearance is rather unremarkable to us.

However, this case will appeal to builders who prefer a simpler design without any distracting LEDs. It is sturdy, small and lightweight enough to be concealed easily, and portable enough to be used almost anywhere. If you wanted to stow this away discreetly, you could even put it in a drawer.

This case, despite its tight quarters, shows careful design. Separate compartments are reserved for the motherboard/CPU and the GPU. This ensures that heat is dissipated more efficiently and that air can freely circulate throughout the enclosure.

This device is reminiscent of both a VCR and a miniature gaming console. This case is great if you like the console style, which many people do.

If you enjoy personalizing your electronics with artwork, skins, or stickers, you’ll appreciate how simple the shape of this case is. Even though it’s only available in black, we’ve seen a number of white and other non-black custom builds floating around the Internet.

It’s worth noting that this PC case has some clearance issues, as its narrow dimensions may prevent you from installing some of your larger components (CPU coolers in particular) in their optimal locations. Fortunately, a reliable power supply unit (PSU) is available as an extra accessory with this case. The case’s price doubles if you opt for the PSU, but it’s not a terrible deal considering that a mid-range PSU alone would set you back about the same as the bundle.

Keep in mind that the vertical orientation of this case provides the best cooling results and the least amount of noise. In this case, maintaining a vertical orientation is essential if you want to maximize your performance.

SilverStone Raven RVZ03

Dimensions (in inches): 15.0 x 14.3 x 4.13
Two USB Type-A 3.0 ports and a single HD Audio port are included.

The Pros:

  • Unique and beautiful facial features.
  • Lots of opportunities for women of color

The Cons:

  • Disparate plastic bodywork
  • As a result of the high cost of the materials used.

One of the most visually arresting computer cases we’ve seen in a long time is the RVZO3 from SilverStone’s Raven line of cases. The case’s front is adorned with a sunken LED strip that evokes the design of the Halo, making it a good fit for both portrait and landscape orientations.

The case we’re looking at has addressable RGB lighting for a little more money, but its LEDs are programmable as well. The RVZ03-ARGB, which is the addressable variant, is otherwise indistinguishable from the standard RVZ03, save for its enhanced RGB capabilities.

The consumer can choose from two different color options, silver-black or full white, with either version of the case. Despite the fact that the exterior of this case can be customized in a variety of ways, the plastic chassis inside is disappointing. A major letdown, this.

However, we feel that the materials and design of this case do not adequately justify the asking price. It does, however, have a strikingly cool appearance. You can’t go wrong with any of the options here, but if this one particularly grabs your attention, go for it!

Similarly to the Node 202 above, this case is built with a partition between the motherboard and the graphics processing unit (GPU) to maximize heating efficiency, especially when placed vertically. Unfortunately, the case may emit a strong plasticky odor during the first few weeks of use (we attribute this to the cheaper plastic housing).


Dimensions (in inches): 13.70 x 8.30 x 14.70
A single Type-A USB 3.1 port, a single Type-C USB 3.1 port, and a single headset jack are all that’s needed for connectivity.

The Pros:

  • Precision in design and aesthetics
  • Superb cable organization
  • Fantastic value for the money

The Cons:

  • Maybe a little cumbersome for some people.

Our NZXT H210 mini ITX is the only model in our catalog designed in the conventional tower form factor. While this may be the preferred layout for many users, it does rule out the H210 for those with particularly tight quarters. Since limited space is usually the driving factor behind the decision to construct a mini ITX PC, we question the wisdom of doing so.

Vỏ Case NZXT H210 (Mini Tower/Màu Đen)

Yet, despite that, the popularity, dependability, and durability of this case speak for themselves. Managing cords and cables is a breeze with the “clip” provided inside each case. Since this is a patented feature exclusive to NZXT products, you won’t find anything like it on any other chassis.

The H210 doesn’t have built-in LEDs (and, to be honest, it doesn’t need any), but they’re available as an add-on for the H210i. You should know that upgrading from the H210 to the H210i results in a sizable price increase, taking the PC case firmly out of the low-cost category.

The H210 and H210i are available in several stylish hues, from all-black to dazzling white. We can’t decide which of the three case colors is our favorite.

For a mini ITX case, this one is exceptionally quiet and easy to construct in. Those who find it challenging to construct in confined areas would do well to keep this case in mind. Additionally, the case’s cable management solutions are top-notch, contributing to a pristine final product.

Overall, this model shows a lot of promise for a great price, and its relatively standard shape stands out in a sea of oddly shaped chassis. One possible exception is if you have a particular form factor in mind.

NZXT H210i


Construction Type: Mini-ITX tower
Assist for Mini-ITX Motherboards
It measures a compact 210 x 349 x 372 mm.
6.0 kilos in weight
Suppport for Radiators of 120mm and 240mm Diameters
One Audio/Mic Input, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A Port, and one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C Port.
Drive Capacities: 4 x 2.5″, 1 x 3.5″


Fantastic assistance in maintaining a comfortable temperature
Addition of a strip of RGB LEDs
Device 2.0 Smart with a CAM Camera


Even among computer programmers, CAM isn’t universally well-liked.

We like the NZXT H710i as a mid-tower, and the NZXT H210i is essentially a smaller version of that case. Designed specifically for Mini-ITX motherboards, the H210i excels at squeezing a powerful computer into a small form factor.

As with its larger sibling, this case features NZXT’s smart hub, as well as two fans and an RGB LED strip. The H200i costs about $130, making it competitive with other mid-sized towers, but we still recommend it. The case has many of the same features as a premium mid-tower, such as a large tempered glass panel and clever cable management.

Built with NZXT’s CAM-powered Smart Device V2, the H210i has intelligent digital fan control and plenty of room to add more RGB lighting strips, as well as a streamlined RGB lighting setup out of the box. The H210i is ideal for those looking to build a compact yet potent gaming PC, thanks to its support for liquid cooling and high-capacity graphics cards.

InWin A1


Mini-ITX tower is the form factor.
Mini-ITX compatible motherboard support
A size of 273 x 216 x 356 mm
Body Mass Index (BMI): 6.9
120mm Radiator Bracket
One Audio/Mic jack, two USB 3.0 ports, and a Qi wireless charging port.
Two 2.5-inch and two 3.5-inch hard drive bays.


Built-in Qi wireless charging pad
Power supply unit (PSU) built in (600W)
Compact plus


The potential for growth is restricted because of the small size.

When it comes to remarkable cases, InWin is frequently at the forefront of innovation. One such case is the newest A1 Mini-ITX tower, which features a minimalistic but functional design and a number of useful extras.

One of our least favorite parts of building in small ITX cases is hunting down and fitting a power supply, but the A1 takes care of that with its preinstalled and cable-managed 600W PSU. Its power output is sufficient for most ITX builds using discrete graphics cards. The case’s sleek, modern design includes a Qi wireless charger that can be conveniently accessed at the top.

The A1 is not suitable for high-end systems that require multiple fans and a lot of space for storage, unlike some of the other ITX cases on this page. It can still serve as the foundation for a wide variety of good projects.

Corsair Crystal 280X RGB


Micro-ATX tower is the form factor.
Support for Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX Motherboards
Measurements are 398 mm x 276 mm x 351 mm.
Expressed in kilograms: 7.1
Radiator Sizes Supplied: 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, & 280mm
Connectors: 1x Audio/Mic, 2x USB 3.0
3 x 2.5-inch and 2 x 3.5-inch drive bays


Functional and adaptable interior design
Addressable RGB fans installed beforehand
1 Large, separate rooms


The size is, uh, a bit on the bigger side.

Although the Corsair micro-ATX Crystal Series 280X is outside the scope of this guide, we felt compelled to include it because it is such a fantastic case and worthy of mention. The tower is shaped like a cube, and its two chambers make it easy to organize cables and set it up. Two addressable RGB fans and a Lighting Node PRO controller are included with the 280X RGB.

The 280X, like the other cases in the Crystal Series, has three smoked tempered glass panels that make it simple to display your system’s RGB components. Various radiator sizes, up to 280mm in length, can be used with the case.

We think the 280X RGB is great for mATX and micro-ITX builds, despite being labeled as a micro-ATX motherboard. Aside from being one of the smallest cases available, its roomy interior and flexible dual-chamber design also make it extremely versatile. Its size is comparable to that of other Mini-ITX cases, so it won’t overwhelm its surroundings.

Phanteks Evolv Shift 2

A Either the vertical or horizontal plane


-Only works with 120mm all-in-one (AIO) CPU coolers
Astonishingly tall

Incredibly, we have come a long way from the obnoxious, early 90s-era beige boxes that served as PC cases. People who play video games or are interested in them are starting to take pride in displaying their systems on their work desks. Additionally, there have been a few alternatives that work well in the family room, but Phanteks’ Evolv Shift 2 is head and shoulders above the rest.

Astoundingly spacious, and surprisingly easy to construct, considering how little land it took up. Phanteks was able to pull this off by flipping the motherboard and adding a GPU mount that can be flipped to allow for vertical installation of the graphics card behind the motherboard. To accomplish this, the ”rear” I/O has been relocated to the top of the case, behind a door with a cool RGB LED.

Although it’s not the smallest ITX case on the market, the Phanteks Evolv Shift 2 is our top pick for a media center PC. It’s the best case around for bringing 4K PC gaming into your living room, thanks to its beautiful exterior and well-engineered interior. The larger Evolv Shift X gives you even more value for your money if you want to go the extra mile with custom liquid cooling.

Cooler Master Elite 110


ITX tower is the form factor.
Support for Mini-ITX Motherboards
Weight: 78 g Size: 260 x 208 x 280 mm
2.65 kilograms
The 120mm Radiator Bracket is a Must-Have!
There are one audio/microphone in and two USB 3.0 out ports.
Space for disk drives: 4x 2.5″, 3x 3.5″


Lightweight and compact
Storage capacity plentiful


-Uncomplicated style

The Cooler Master Elite 110 is about as user-friendly as it gets if you want to construct a basic, space-saving gaming rig or HTPC. Although it lacks some of the features of the other ITX choices discussed here, it is more than capable of completing the tasks at hand.

Lian Li Q58


ITX Case Is The Kind Of This
Mini-ITX Motherboard Compatibility
Maximum card length of 320mm (12.6 inches)
The following storage sizes are supported: (one 3.5″, three 2.5″, and one 2.0″
No Adorable Supporters Integrated


Positive: It has a clean, attractive glass or mesh design.
Incredibly pleasant thermals plus
1 Adaptable design, with support for ATX power supplies
At only $130, it’s within everyone’s price range.


Cable management can be challenging.
Additional help for the PCIe riser card is required.

The Q58 from Lian Li completely astonished us. The base model of this attractive, well-ventilated, and versatile 14.3-liter Mini-ITX enclosure costs only $130.

Steel is used for the main structure, and glass and perforated steel panels line the sides. The case’s front bezel and top plate are made of higher-quality aluminum, giving it a sleek, expensive appearance and feel. A 280mm radiator fits in the case’s roof, and the GPU can get cool air from the side. The pretty RGB lighting can still be seen through the glass.

While the plain PCIe 3.0 riser cable and forgoing some AIO and storage options are great ways to cut costs, the case can be rearranged to accommodate an ATX power supply. Spend an extra $30 to get a PCIe 4.0 riser cable compatible with RTX 3000 and RX 6000 graphics cards. The Q58 has very little to dislike about it.

Hyte Revolt 3


Case ITX Type
Backwards Compatibility with Mini-ITX Motherboards
Cards up to 335mm (13.2 inches) in length are supported.
You can use (1) 3.5″ and (2) 2.5″ devices for storage.
Absolutely no Adorable Supporters Included


Style points for beautiful simplicity
Convenient to install, with some filtering of the air
The starting price of $129 makes it accessible to most people.


-Utilizes only the AIO system for cooling

We were thrilled when iBuyPower announced it would sell the Revolt 3’s chassis separately. It finally arrived, and we’re very pleased with it. At just $129, the Hyte Revolt 3 is an affordable ITX case with a wonderfully functional design that includes plenty of mesh, two click-away headphone holders, and a carrying handle that sits flush into the top when not in use. Understandably, at this price point, the build quality isn’t quite up to par. It’s just painted steel, but the paint job looks great, and the product as a whole has a modern, minimalist design that should look good in any gaming room.

With support for up to a 280mm AIO, two 2.5-inch SSDs, and one 3.5-inch drive, the Revolt 3 can accommodate almost any Mini-ITX system. Its design eliminates the need for a PCI-e riser cable, so users of graphics cards from Nvidia’s RTX 3000 or AMD’s RX 6000 series won’t experience any sluggishness in frame rates.

The only major drawback of this chassis is that it has no built-in cooling mechanisms and instead depends entirely on the AIO. Although we initially worried that this setup wouldn’t be able to handle our high-TDP i5-11600K and RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, we found through testing that it is more than capable.

Phanteks Evolv Shift 2


ITX Case Is The Name Of The Game
Mini-ITX compatible motherboard support.
Cards up to 335mm (13.2 inches) in length are supported.
A 3.5″ and a 2.5″ storage device are supported.
One (1) 140mm fan is included.


Plus: compact size and aesthetically pleasing facades.
1 Easy to understand design scheme
Positive: It can accommodate large graphics processing units; Negative: Only 120mm AIOs can be used for CPU cooling.


Very difficult to construct in
“-Riser PCIe 3.0 cable”

At first glance, the Evolv Shift 2 stands out due to its towering, small-footprint design and gorgeous anodized aluminum panels. The mesh version costs $100, while the TG and addressable-RGB fan version costs $110. Both are excellent options, and both deserve spots on our list of the best mini-ITX PC cases.

The Evolv Shift 2 is a small form factor (SFF) computer that looks great in either the tempered glass or mesh finish, making it ideal for use in the living room or as a portable system for use elsewhere in the house. The top IO is conveniently located and makes it simple to connect peripherals. It took me about three hours to complete the build, and there were the usual challenges associated with Mini-ITX systems, but the result was well worth it. However, its single-fan radiator support may be too thermally limiting for some systems, and its overall size is a bit larger than most Mini-ITX cases would be.

Cooler Master NR200P Max


ITX Case Is The Name Of This Animal
Mini-ITX Motherboard Compatibility
Cards can be up to 336mm (13.2 inches) in length.
Assorted Sizes of Storage: (two) 3.5″ (three) 2.5″
Two 140mm fans are included in the package.


Pre-assembled with PCIe 4.0 riser cable, 850W power supply, and 280mm AIO
Possibility of quick construction
Excellent chilling
Panels of mesh and glass are included.


-The price of $349 is steep, but remember that it includes both a power supply unit and all-in-one
A little boring in terms of design and color scheme.

The 850w power supply and 280mm liquid cooler that come preinstalled in Cooler Master’s NR200P Max chassis are just two of the many reasons it’s so impressive. Included mesh and glass side panels, a PCIe 4.0 riser cable, fit-to-length PSU cables, and pre-routed AIO tubes make the NR200P Max a no-brainer recommendation for those who value ease of assembly.

Focus on what really matters by bringing only the essentials, including a motherboard, CPU, graphics card, memory, and a boot drive. However, the dullness of the case’s paint and finish is the case’s only real flaw. Nevertheless, we don’t think you’ll mind that the transparent panel is displaying your high-tech inner workings. Paint it if you must!

Louqe Raw S1


Case ITX Type
Mini-ITX Motherboard Compatibility
The maximum length of a supported card is 320mm (12.6 inches).
The availability of one 2.5″
No Adorable Supporters Integrated.


Amazingly tasteful minimalist style
Highly reliable construction and thermal efficiency
1 Extremely small, even by Mini-ITX requirements
Can be inserted into with little effort.


It lacks front IO and air filtration.

An often-heard criticism is that Mini-ITX cases are too pricey. And the Louqe Raw S1 chassis is the proof that this is the case. On the other hand, this is a Mini-ITX enclosure worthy of admiration. The Louqe Raw S1 is more of a piece of art than a case thanks to its sleek design and sturdy, one-piece aluminum exterior.

To the contrary, a computer can be accommodated here. Neither air filtration nor AIO support are available. Sure, there are drawbacks, but it also has one of the simplest construction processes; you can probably finish it in under an hour and it will look great when you’re done. Even though it has an extremely small footprint (just 12 liters), it is perfectly comfortable housing massive triple-slot graphics cards. It also comes with a high-end ‘Cobalt’ PCIe 4.0 riser cable, so there is very little about this case that isn’t top-tier. There’s even a handle for easy transport.

Keep in mind, though, that this case will set you back $330 and is only available in very limited quantities.

NCase M1


ITX Case Is The Kind Of This
Backwards Compatibility with Mini-ITX Motherboards
Acceptable Card Length: 322mm (12.7 inches).
Two 3.5-inches and one 2.5-inch drive, or seven 2.5-inches in total, are supported.
No Adorable Supporting Cheerleaders Included


Positively enduring style
Completely aluminum chassis and shell
Incredibly robust support for cooling devices like fans and radiators
Internal components that can be adjusted with ease


Pricey, coming in at $220

In the world of Mini-ITX cases, the NCase M1 deserves special recognition. In 2013, Lian Li manufactured this community-designed Mini-ITX case. As the community was unhappy with the available ITX options, this case’s inception can be seen as a catalyst for the Mini-ITX category.

Is a Mini-ITX build worth it?

As a result, the bottom line is. Though mini-ITX computers aren’t widely used, there are many advantages to having a compact PC. To get the best graphics cards, you don’t need to sacrifice performance by going with a compact case unless you absolutely need multiple PCIe expansion slots.


Mini ITX computers can’t be argued to be anything other than entertaining and surprising. A surprisingly powerful computer can be constructed in a surprisingly small (or oddly shaped) form factor if one is willing to work with the difficulty that sometimes comes with such small spaces.

While each gamer has unique requirements for a PC, we have selected a few standouts. The NZXT H210, our final contender, is the best all-around PC case because it combines a sleek, attractive design with a ton of features and a low price. However, apart from the absence of that peculiar shape, this mini ITX case passes with flying colors.

We can’t say enough good things about the Thermaltake Core V1 Cube if you’re on a tight budget and want a stylish case that gets the job done. The V1 Cube is a cheap and highly adaptable mini ITX case that offers a number of design options.

We also think it’s important to give recognition to the Fractal Design Node 202, as it’s a fantastic case that justifies its price. While it may be difficult to select components and construct within its confines, it offers many benefits to those who are up for the challenge. Stability and durability are at an all-time high, and as people on the internet have demonstrated, it’s also simple to tailor to individual tastes.
