The 5 Best PC Cases Without Windows in 2022

The best choices for a minimalism and silence

Best PC Case Without Window

We updated this feature in June for the second half of 2022. After reviewing new windowless options, our top choices remain the same. We’ve included some alternatives for picks that occasionally run low on stock.

As popular as a tempered glass chassis is nowadays, we know that showing off all of your PC’s bells and whistles isn’t to everyone’s taste.

What about those after a more minimalist build?

Whether it’s for a cleaner style, noise reduction, or anything else; today’s feature breaks down the best windowless PC cases available today for different budgets and sizes.

Fractal Design Define R5

Overall Best PC Case Without Window: Fractal Design Define R5

2022 mid-year update: The Define R5 remains our top pick for 2 years running. I’ve reviewed some other windowless cases that have entered the market but nothing that ticks the boxes quite as well as this offering.

I really cannot speak highly enough of the Define R5.

Not only is this the best computer case without windows, but it’s one of the greatest towers on the market today in any category (and our favorite case from Fractal Design, who are a fantastic manufacturer focused on no-window options).

The build quality of this case is top-tier. With a majority steel (+ metal finish) exterior that gives the chassis an understated but stylish look (stock photos do not do it justice).
