Best PC Cases in Pakistan: 2020
When you’re building a PC, the majority of components are chosen due to their performance or sheer value. However, when it comes to picking an enclosure for your build, aesthetics are the primary concern for most people but at the same time ensuring adequate airflow is also imperative.
It is important to note that Pakistan always limited options when it comes to casings, and with the Covid-19 pandemic upon us, the situation has become deplorable with the availability becoming a pipe dream and the prices increasing day by day.
However, we aim to facilitate your purchasing decision by providing you with a comprehensive guide on casings currently available in the market.
Under Rs. 10,000
In this price range, we are solely focusing on airflow since this price bracket comes with an opportunity cost of either forgoing airflow or aesthetics.
Raidmax ZETA RGB: Rs. 9,500.
The Zeta by Raidmax offers a mesh front with an preinstalled ARGB strip for a little pizzazz. The front I/O supports 2 USB 3.0 ports with traditional audio jacks. At only Rs, 9,500, this is our preferred choice in this price segment.
RaidMax Blazar: Rs. 6,000
The RaidMax tries to imitate an expensive design at a relatively low price point. The front panel is made out of plastic with an ARGB strip built into it. However, the airflow will be mediocre at best. You would have to be vary about scratches as the side panel is acrylic. The case also has a PSU chamber. If you’re looking for a casing just for the RGB at this range, the Raidmax Blazar could be a valid option for some at Rs.6,000
Thermaltake N26: Rs. 7,600
The Thermaltake N26 has been the preferred choice by gamers on a budget. The design can be considered tacky by some, but it has enough mesh upfront to facilitate airflow. As for the I/O ports, it comes with a single USB 3.0 port with two USB 2.0 ones. In addition to that, it has your typical Mic and Headset jack. In terms of price, for Rs. 7,600 you can’t go wrong.
