    However, remember to check for any compatibility between yours CASE​ and yours motherboard the other component eats heatsinksfanscards before purchasing the product of your choice.

    Also check that the size of the fans are compatible with the slots available on the case and that i heatsinks and / or video cards, once mounted, do not interfere with the expansion slots (HDD, SSD, lettore DVD).

    You can find all these details in the section about the technical specifications by going to the manufacturer's website chassis.

    Recall that the chassis da gaming they can be classified into different categories:

    • Micro tower
    • mini-tower

    • Full tower

    This nomenclature serves only to define the size of houses and therefore the relative compatibility with various motherboard models.

    We will also evaluate a case by the presence of LEDs, dust filters, side panels, I / O peripherals, fans included, stability, production materials and much more.

    For the following article, I report below an index for navigation with the various price ranges specified:

    I have dealt with this article on one occasion and was pleasantly impressed by it rapporto qualità / prezzo.

    It only supports small motherboards, therefore only micro ATX and even mini ITX. Therefore we will not be able to install an ATX in this case.

    Another great cabinet offered by Sharkoon is the RGB Slider. Its price is very similar to the case of the same company seen above, and even this case has nothing to envy to other higher-end ones.

    The quality of the materials is more than satisfactory. This case is built in metal, except on the side, made in tempered glass, thus allowing you to see the components inside it.
