The computer case serves as a chassis, which holds all the components together in one tidy box. Gaming cases are favourable over non gaming cases, mainly due to their looks, and secondarily due to their added airflow. Generally speaking, they offer more space inside, allowing you to upgrade your PC more easily in the future. That being said, gaming chassis’ don’t offer any performance boost over office PC cases – no components leave Bedrock quality control with the potential to overheat in any PC case.
If looks and aesthetics are important to you, then chances are you’d care about how the case looks. With our cases, you’re spoilt for choice. They offer a large amount of customizability on the colour and pattern of the RGB fans, allowing you to decide how it should look.
Motherboards, are called motherboards, as they connect all the individual components together on one neat board. They have very little effect on performance, but the motherboard may matter to you if you are a bit more of an enthusiast. More expensive motherboards look nicer, come in nicer colours, and have more features such as RAM slots, SATA ports or PCIe slots. They also come with better built in software, if you wish to overclock or tweak your PC in the future. If you aren’t familiar with any of these terms, you won’t need a fancy motherboard.
That leads us onto heatsinks and water coolers. If you notice some of our PCs come with bigger, beefier air coolers, or even a water cooling loop, that means the processor will run cooler. This is only really useful for overclocking the CPU, which produces more heat. It’s largely untrue that bigger coolers or water coolers are quieter – that just isn’t the case. Just like motherboards, these only make sense valuing highly if you are an enthusiast.
And finally, case fans. All our PCs come with at least 1 case fan, to ensure proper ventilation inside the case, which help keep temperatures down. The more case fans, the higher the airflow. This comes with the trade off with slightly increased noise.
