Most of the gamers and enthusiasts do like to show their PC fancy stuff that includes RGB LED lighting, RGB graphics card, RGB liquid cooling, RGB RAM and whole lot of other components. To properly display your hardware internal components, you need a big PC case with large window panels. Windowed PC cases have been around for quite some time and are very popular among gamers. Windowed computer cases use a transparent or translucent plastic window (acrylic) through which you can see all the components inside the case. The transparent window offers decent visibility and can be prone to scratches. To fully showcase your fancy components in all glory, you need tempered glass PC cases which are becoming very popular among gamers.
Tempered Glass Computer Cases are unarguably one of the best looking gaming PC cases, but they are a bit pricey compared to the traditional gaming cases with plastic windowed panels. The tempered glass used in these cases is resistant to scratches and offers great visibility to showcase all your fancy RGB LED components with full glory. If you are person who care about aesthetics then you must get a tempered glass computer case for your gaming PC. The one slightly issue with these glass cases is that the glass may retain some heat inside it and may lead to a slightly rise in temperature compared to a plastic based computer case. However, the temperature rise is very minimal or negligible and should not be a major concern if you have good ventilation and sufficient number of case fans installed in your computer case. Here in this post I am going to list down the best looking tempered glass PC cases for building a visually stunning and powerful gaming PC.
