Best of the Rest
Important Note on Pink PC Case Availability
If you’re unlucky, many of the below choices will only appear as black. If this is the case, then, unfortunately, the pink color option of that case is temporarily out of stock.
The pink PC case demand is quite high compared to the number of available options so they often sell out reasonably fast and it’s easy to run into this problem temporarily.
The good news is that this whole list is full of picks worthy of your build, don’t be dissuaded if the top few choices happen to be out of stock. Apevia has especially stood out as a brand offering lots of options for you in this color.
Overall Best Pink PC Case: Apevia Crusader-F-PK
Apevia has created a lot of cute computer cases and makes up a majority of choices on this list. Standing tallest amongst them is the Crusader-F-PK.
If you are looking to create an RGB PC build this case offers you fantastic value, coming in a tad cheaper than our runner-up pick with 4 RGB fans. On top of that is the light-toggle button on the front I/O panel, which cycles through 16 different effects for the pre-installed fans(anything from single colors, to breathing, to off if you’re not interested in the lights).
The specs are decent elsewhere on this pink mid-tower PC case, including GPUs up to 350mm wide and up to 8 fans installable, this thing has plenty of cooling potential.
The case also has great cable management options and a decent design to facilitate airflow alongside its great fan inclusions. It will certainly meet most gaming needs at the price point without buying any further cooling, it’s a very impressive offering.
The design is striking, with a cool, “rugged” pink finish on the outer casing working alongside the RGB fans and tempered glass window to create a very unique looking case. We love that Apevia has gone for a tint in their window here; these are often more effective at tastefully displaying internal flashy parts.
On top of that, we are floored with the build quality at this price range. The F-PK feels as good as it looks and it’s quite mind-boggling that the case comes with such a wonderful design, build, and its 4 RGB fans at its price.
If you have your sights set on the best pink ATX computer case available, you’ve found it! The fact that it’s also so cheap is just a wonderful bonus-add.
Runner-Up Best Pink PC Case: Golden Field MAGE-P
As decent as the other picks are on this list, this pink ATX case is easily the pick to contend with the Apevia Crusader-F-PK.
The MAGE-P is a beautiful computer case and strikes a wonderful balance between aesthetic, build quality, functionality, and price.
Starting with the design; this pink chassis is slick. With a tasteful SPCC steel build that feels as good as it looks, the casing feels built to last. We also love the tempered glass window that runs down the full length of the side (better than ones that are cut-off where the PSU cover is).
Easily our favorite aspect of the case’s aesthetic is its largely pink design including the inside. This may sound obvious in a list full of pink CPU cases, but you’ll see from our other picks below, even though they are of good quality, many choices in pink coloring are still largely black/dark on the inside.
It is, of course, up to you to decide which you prefer, but we think anyone creating a pink gaming PC setup will give a better look with a case fully-coated.
This pink mid-tower case comes with a nice PSU shroud and hidden compartments for your HDDs and SSDs, all of which have enough spare room for decent cable management. We really appreciate a case designed to cover these “uglier” components with ample room, as it means you can achieve a very neat, clean aesthetic to show off your flashy parts; not to mention better airflow.
Speaking of airflow, the MAGE-P’s front has a tasteful pink mesh design that increases ventilation and also gives enough visibility on the 3 pre-installed LED fans. We love this inclusion for the price, it really adds a great amount of value to a case.
With its good ventilation design and included fans, this pink ATX tower has everything you need to cool even a decent gaming build from the get-go. But if you want to take it further, you can install up to 8 x 120mm fans (with ample room for water cooling around the case too, if preferred). These are really decent allowances for this form-factor, meaning you have decent capability for overclocking in the future if desired.
Elsewhere on the case is great room for your hardware. With a 320mm GPU length clearance, this is a great choice for a pink gaming pc case. Or if you’re more interested in storage, the MAGE-P has an impressive allowance for 4 x 2.5″ & 2 x 3.5″/2.5″ drive bays (all hidden in the back of the case).
So with all that said, why do we rank the Apevia Crusader above this?
Well, as good as the MAGE-P is, it’s notably more expensive than our top pick, and the F-PK doesn’t only come with an additional fan, but the fans are also RGB (i.e. changeable color) instead of static LED fans. So we think the F-PK is a slightly better value offering.
But don’t let that put you off if you prefer this pick, we’ve ranked it so high for a reason.
With its beautiful aesthetic, build quality, cooling setup, and included fans all packaged under a fair price, the MAGE-P is easily one of the best pink computer cases available today.
Best Cheap Pink PC Case: Apevia ENZO-PK
We’re back to Apevia for the cheapest pink computer case on the market worth buying; the ENZO-PK.
At an impressively low price-point, the ENZO-PK still boasts a good quality metal build, a tempered glass window, and a gorgeous pink coloring on the outside chassis (some of the internals are also pink, which we really appreciate).
With an aesthetically pleasing shroud to hide your cables, PSU and up to 3 x 3.5″ & 2 x 2.5″ drives, the layout is nice to keep your setup clean.
From an airflow perspective, the front of the case is completely covered. However the ENZO-PK, while not quite as cool as our top 2 picks, still does a decent job with lots of ventilation on the top, rear, and bottom (we expect they went with the covered front for design reasons, so if you prefer that kind of look, know this is still a suitable pink PC case for gaming/running a powerful budget build).
Another pink ATX tower, the room inside is decent. With video cards up to 350mm, CPU coolers up to 160mm & room for up to 6 x 120mm fans (with 1 included, we appreciate this when it’s already a budget pick, many of these don’t include any).
One important note: This cheap computer case does offer good value, but sometimes it’s not always about having the cheapest price-tag. Our runner-up pick includes an extra 3 fans for only around 10-15% extra cost (all of which are RGB too). If you’re trying to create a super cheap pink PC build, then the ENZO-PK is great But from a value perspective? We would push you towards the F-PK, as this model offers so much more cooling for very little cost.
With all that said, if you like the aesthetic of the ENZO-PK, aren’t looking for flashy LED fans, or are simply after the best budget pink PC case on the market that we would still happily recommend, this is the one for you.
Best High-End Case: InWin A1 Plus
For those of you who have more of a budget and are looking to build a tiny tower, the A1 is the best option on the list.
This is a mITX form factor, so you’ll need to come into the build with the right parts. That being said, it offers an impressive amount of room for its size. With 2 x 2.5″ drives, 2 expansion slots and still managing a GPU up to 320mm.
This case gets top marks for design and build. With high-quality SECC steel, tempered glass window, and gorgeous pink finish. The A1 already looks great before you power it on.
But once you do power it on? You’re also treated to the included 2 addressable RGB fans and light glowing in the transparent stand the case sites on. Simply put, this is the highest quality pink computer tower on the market right now.
The cooling is also great when considering the tiny size. On top of the aforementioned included fans (both 120mm), the case is also designed with decent ventilation/airflow capability. When building a mITX PC, you can never expect the same cooling as a mid-tower, but the case represents an excellent balance and will still do very well for a small gaming PC.
The front I/O panel has the standard ports: 2x USB3.0 and 2 x audio (you would be hard-pressed to get more from any mini ITX case). A nice unique feature, in this case, is the top wireless QI charger. With its small form factor and this utility on your desk, it will look like a cute charging hub but actually be the shell of your powerful build!
Although this is the most expensive case on the list, it actually matches up in value pretty decently to the cheaper top picks. Coming pre-installed with a 650w gold-rated power supply (handy to have included for such a small form factor, where compatible PSUs can be more pricey). It’s worth noting this PSU isn’t top quality. If you’re building an average mini ITX gaming PC you’re going to be fine, but if you want to cram as much power into this thing as possible, you may want to consider the Corsair SF series and use the pre-installed PSU as a backup.
Between the high-quality design/color, lights, and component space; the InWin A1 is ideal for someone dedicated to a small, stylish build while maintaining good balance for quality gaming/production components. Perfect for a pink streaming PC build.
Best Pink Micro ATX Case: Apevia PRODIGY-PK
Our next pick is for those after a pink mini-tower PC case, the form factor usually best for balancing compact dimensions while still retaining the freedom to install wide arrays of parts.
If this describes you, the Prodigy-PK is the best-looking PC case for the task.
Offering a level of value only rivaled by our runner-up pick, the PK boasts a beautiful design. With a full pink steel exterior and fantastic mesh coverage on both the front and top of the case, we appreciate that Apevia acknowledges that in smaller case form factors, ventilation is often an issue (with the reduced room for airflow); so this case offering the most points for air to enter/leave makes great sense.
On top of that, despite its low price, you are getting 3 x RGB fans pre-installed (with a handy controller button on the front I/O panel). Combined with the ventilation, the PK is easily the best pink PC case for airflow and cooling in the mATX form factor (and you should have everything you need here to cool, even for a gaming/streaming build).
The internal specs are great for the size, with this mini tower still boasting 350mm GPU clearance & room for 6 x 120mm fans (not to mention radiator options for water cooling). These specs may not sound crazy, but they’re great for a cheap computer case in this form factor.
On top of that, we appreciate the case still having a decent shroud for your PSU, cables, and up to 2 x 3.5″ & 2 x 2.5″ drive bays (you won’t have quite the same room for cable management as the ATX choices, but there’s still ample space here if you spend a little more time).
We’ll restate that we’re really pleasantly surprised with all the value on offer here, this would make a great girl gamer PC case with its nice compact style and capability for gaming.
Apevia has done it again with the Prodigy-PK, this is comfortably our top pick for the best pink mATX case, if you’re in the market for this form factor, we think you’ll really enjoy building in this chassis.
Best Budget Mini-ITX Case: SilverStone SG13P
If you’re looking for a small tower that isn’t quite in the InWin A1 price range, this is a fantastic choice for you.
Silverstone is a great PC case manufacturer, and it shows in this offering. While largely plastic, the case has a faux aluminum design and feels metallic (not “cheap-feeling” in the slightest, impressive for the price).
The design is super simplistic when compared to the A1, but depending on your personal preference, this might be what you’re looking for.
Even smaller than the A1, it lacks the space/airflow of the high-end mITX choice (with 1 x 140mm / radiator option available) and can only support cards of up to 270mm long. But if you are not trying to build a super-powerful expensive PC and desire that level of compactness, you can still accomplish your goals with this case.
Front I/O panel is the standard 2 x USB 3.0 / audio ports, nicely presented underneath the front mesh design.
As far as cheap pink pc cases go for a mini ITX build, this is your only option! Thankfully, it’s a great, well-balanced piece of kit and providing you’re checking your dimensions and not trying to build some crazy super-expensive gaming setup inside, we think you’ll have a great time with the SG13P.
Best Budget Pink PC Case Alternative: darkFlash DLM22
2021 Update: While the DLM22 was previously one of our top pink PC case picks, darkFlash has, unfortunately, appears to only be sporadically stocking the pink model. We’ve kept the review here, but unless you see the pink color on the Amazon page, you’ll have to ignore this option.
The DLM22 is a fantastic option for someone looking to build a pink PC (and not the first time it has appeared on What in Tech for its quality). The amount of value you’re getting in a case this cheap is very impressive.
Let’s start with the design. Gorgeously simplistic with good build quality, we think the DLM22 is a great choice for anyone after a cute gamer girl PC case.
With a shroud covering the PSU/HDDs and space in the back for decent cable management; you’ll have the option to keep your inner components simple to match the exterior, or be flashy and show off bright components through the high-quality tempered glass window (which also has a great, screwless/door-open design, very handy for easy PC access).
One important note: The DLM22 is an mATX form factor. This means it’s a tad smaller than your average mid-tower PC case. You have more than enough great options for parts to fit in an mATX case (will still take most major GPUs), but just make sure to check the dimensions of your parts. If you were already looking for a pink micro ATX case, it’s your lucky day!
Speaking of size, the DLM22 also manages great options for cooling. With space for 2 x 120mm front, 2 x 140mm top, and 1 x 120mm rear fans, you’re going to have more than enough cooling for a MicroATX build.
Water cooling is also an option, with radiator space at the top (240mm) and rear (120mm). This isn’t a super high availability for liquid cooling, but could easily combine with 2 front fans for a great solution.
The front I/O panel is pretty standard, with 1 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, and HD audio ports (looking very well-integrated with the overall case design).
Something to point out is a minority of customers, unfortunately, seem to receive defective cases; this is all too common with high-value cases under $100 (even from much larger manufacturers). It’s worth bearing in mind that a majority of people didn’t run into such problems. And in the worst-case scenario, your warranty will cover the replacement.
The DLM22 is one of the only budget pink options that compete in quality with the best cases in common colors. Boasting great value, style, and space; if this fits your aesthetic and size requirements, we’re sure you’ll love it.
Alternative Picks – Best of the Rest
While the above picks are what we consider the top pink computer cases for gaming, streaming or even business/personal use, there are a few more decent options that are worth considering if your requirements are more specific:
Pink PC Case with Most Fans Included: Apevia Genesis PRO
The Genesis PRO is a great looking case that boasts a fantastic 6 RGB fans pre-installed. This case offers great value and an awesome aesthetic (its airflow will be a tad less efficient with its tempered glass front, but we doubt you’ll be lacking for cooling, even in a gaming build).
If you like this design but don’t need to go as far as 6 fans, the non-pro version of the case, the Apevia Genesis-PK, is also worth considering.
While we think the top 10 picks above are excellent options for your build, we appreciate that pink PC case options are very limited compared to other colors, so we wanted to share a couple of other ideas if you wanted to get creative:
DIY – Spray painting a PC
Many custom builders have had success with customizing a PC this way.
There’s a lot of great existing resource out there on this topic. But here are the high-level steps on how to spray paint a PC:
- Purchase a white PC case as a base.
- (Optional) – Sand down the layers to give a better chance at a “sticking” finish.
- Apply tape/some other make-shift cover method to areas of the case you do not want to be painted (if any).
- Begin spraying the PC case with very thin layers of paint (outside on surfaces you are OK with getting paint on like cardboard).
- Leave each coat to dry for 15-120 mins (depending on the product, most will give direction).
- Repeat the process until there is a consistent color across the full case – and voila!
Pink fans against a light PC case
A great substitute for a pink case would be combining RGB fans (our favorite type here) with a white or transparent PC case that would work well to reflect the pink light and create a very unique aesthetic. In case you didn’t know, you can use software to edit the color settings of these fans and achieve consistent pinks instead of the crazy rainbow colors you see in the example pictures!
Best Purple PC Case?
A quick word for those after a purple computer case as we see this question asked with no real answer. Unfortunately, there isn’t really a great choice for you on the market today. Your best bet is to go for either one of the deep pink PC cases on this list, or look at our DIY option directly above (e.g. combined a clear PC case with purple fans).
