Since the computer case is what you will see every time you use your computer. Get something that you will find easy to look at. I like the cases that don't use any screws just slides or clips to keep things in place.
Pictured below is my current case of choice, the Cooler Master #CAC-T05-UW
Picking out a computer case is mostly a matter of outside apearance, but I urge you to think about features as well.
Make sure you have enough drive bays for what you are installing.
Then I look for cooling. I like to have at least 2 120mm fans to make sure things stay nice and cool. The fan pictured below is made by Ultra.
TIP! Some cases will come with a power supply and case fans, others will not. When looking for a case be sure and read the description to make sure you know what you're getting.
Computer case options vary so you may have more or less connections than I'm showing here. Just connect them to your motherboard following the manual that came with your motherboard.
This section is broken into two sections, the inside of the computer case, and the connections on the outside of the case. As always, all images are linked to the original size, click on any image for a larger view.
TIP! Negative is white. The full color wires are positive. If there is no white wire, black is the negative.
