With a good balance between appearance and performance, this high-end box has all the features necessary to meet the needs of the average user. Good finish, anti-dust filters, screwless design, good interior distribution for any type of configuration and, since its latest version, tempered glass side panels. All a portent that sees these characteristics reflected in its price, leaving a complete product, but not available to any pocket.

If the ATX format does not convince us, we can find versions of this box designed especially for mATX and ITX boards. As a final note, in the Computex of 2018, we could the future new iteration of this box, the Phanteks Evolv X, which will see its release to the market for the last quarter of the year.

Form Factor: Mid-Tower

NZXT H500

The H500 is the spiritual successor of the famous S340 of NZXT, a box that is its outlet revolutionized the market of PC boxes for its appearance, finishes, construction, and price.

In this case, the philosophy of the model is still committed to these characteristics but applies what was learned with the output of the other models of the H series to offer a better Airflow and expansion capacity without rejecting the aforementioned characteristics. It is, therefore, a box in which we find a side air intake and rear and upper outputs for our fans and cooling, making it easy to obtain acceptable temperatures in our equipment while maintaining the clean appearance that characterizes the brand. In addition, its price makes it a good candidate for any medium-high budget.

Cooler Master H500P

We present the Meshify C as one of the boxes with the best Airflow on the list because here is the best one. The Cooler Master H500P Mesh is a Mid-Tower box with excellent finishes, an aggressive look and a frontal that crowns it as one of the boxes with the best performance of its format. With its interior distribution, we can easily accommodate radiators and large fans that will allow us to configure our equipment to taste to get the most out of it.

As a final point, the tempered glass and its RGB compatibility help the general appeal of the box, so that it does not go unnoticed wherever it is.

Form Factor: Mid-Tower / Micro-Tower

Fractal Design Define R5

We're back with Fractal Design. If you value the tranquility above all and the "gamer style" of the crystal and the RGB are not for you, the Define R5 is your box. With a great finish and a sober look, there is not much to note about this box outside the absence of noise once we have assembled our equipment in it. Easy task thanks to its interior that, although standard and without some characteristics of more ostentatious boxes, continue to maintain the use and assembly of this box in a privileged position.

As an extra, we can find a version for mATX with its same characteristics, and at an excellent price in both versions.

Corsair Obsidian 1000D
Form Factor: Full-Tower

Corsair Obsidian 1000D

The largest and largest box ever made by Corsair for the general public deserves a place in our recommendations, not only for how impressive it is but for its functionality and usefulness. Despite its appearance, the Obsidian 1000D has a 100% utilitarian approach and, in addition to giving us space and expandability for practically any equipment that comes to mind, it also allows us to do more atypical things, such as mounting two PCs inside it, just like We said in the news in which we presented on the page a while ago.

It is not a box for everyone, and its prohibitive price and its size announce it, but its capacity and possibilities place it in our recommendations (In addition, and in a personal capacity, it is precious).

SilverStone SST-RVZ02B
Form Factor: SFF / Mini-Tower

SilverStone SST-RVZ02B

And from the largest to the smallest of this list. Behind its unpronounceable name, the popularly known as SilverStone Ravenit is a box that allows us, with the right selection of components, to have a fully functional equipment with all the power of a PC with a size very similar to that of the current consoles. It is not easy to work with this box, but the result is very good. Its side entrances let the warm air of our components escape and allow the dissipation to do if work, while its distribution allows us to place, within a small equipment, standard graphics cards (Although we always recommend removing the rule before venturing to buy a model for this box), all with a sharp look and a great finish, a great product with a small size.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-05
Form Factor: Mid-Tower

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-05

For those users with pockets less wealthy, but who do not want to reject a good look is the SPEC 05 of Corsair, a cheap but efficient box where you decide to use your expenses.

With a front entrance hidden under a plate with an angled motif, this box throws good temperatures in air dissipation, maintaining a good Airflow inside. A product that can be removed a few times for its price and that, if you look like houses, it will give you everything you need for your equipment.

Phanteks Eclipse P300
Form Factor: Mid-Tower

Phanteks Eclipse P300

Following this same philosophy, we meet again with Phanteks in this list of recommendations. The P300 is the last box that we will cite in this list, but it is not the least efficient. With a clean design with two air inlets in the front (one upper and one in the base), this box shares the approach given in the Evolv but reducing details to lower its cost. It offers good Airflow maintaining an excellent appearance and has a good expandability for the future. For its price, a recommended purchase.
