Which Case for Which Role
Each one of us have our own uses for computers. Some of us want to play games, while some of us just want to work. With this, we have to know what our computers will look like. If I were a gamer, what is the shape of my computer? If I were a typist, what should my computer look like?

 


 

ATX Case
This is the most common kind of case. General term for cases that use the ATX form factor, from Micro-ATX to E-ATX, these cases are the more orthodox and plain kind. They are typically used by computers in businesses, libraries, and casual home users because of their easy management.

 

The advantage with these kinds of cases is their simplicity. Building the computers that use ATX cases is as simple as knowing the right parts and screwing them together. Once the motherboard is ready, it is only a matter of opening the case lid and screwing it in place.

 


 

Bench Case
Bench cases are meant to be placed on big flat surfaces. They are made to dissipate heat. They do this by being open to the atmosphere and being generally easy to move around.

 

Since they have to be open, of course, they will have to be broad while being short. Much of their advantages come from their being an open chassis, so cleaning them would also be a hassle sometimes. But this is ok, because with the right tools such as the correct brushes or dusting cans, they can be at top shape.

 


 

Home Theater Computer Case (HTPC)
These are the cases used for home entertainment. They are typically used with computers for watching movies in living rooms or music for parties. The motherboard in them might be of average kind (such as an ATX motherboard), but it is the included audio-visual interfaces and availability optical disk expansion that make them different.

 

Another thing that makes them set apart from the typical case is their color scheme. They must not be too visible, although if they were made to be visible, they have to be aesthetically inconspicuous. This is so that they don’t stand out from the rest of the entertainment area, which will usually be decorated.

 


 

Super Tower
A super tower is the choice of computer enthusiasts. It can hold up to 2 motherboards, making it one of the largest desktop cases around. They were made mostly for power users and technical users.

 

Gamers can use them as well. When used for gaming, the user can take advantage of the exceptional form factor by adding more GPUs and RAMS, while also improving heat dissipation using water cooling and improved fans.

 

These are the more typical kinds of cases out there. There are other non-consumer kinds, although these are what you would usually find today. Let us also note that, as users, we also have the option of making our own custom cases for ourselves.

 

Let’s be creative!
