In a reaction to zoom schooling and the ever progressing price of the newest generation of consoles many gamers, engineers, and people in pursuit of power have turned to the world of modern personal computers. In todays consumer market long passed are the days of the dull dell desktops you may see in ECCR 141 or in other corporate settings. Although function over form is in most people mind when purchasing a computer, PC cases have come to embody a hyperwave aesthetic where one might shell out an extra $30 for some case LEDs.

Now, what would be a computer case without a glass opening to see those sweet LEDs? Like a lot of modern homes PC cases follow a similar aesthetic where geometric designs with large glass panels are very typical. This shape is partly governed by critical components and to promote airflow through the device, but some may be surprised to see the significant amount of empty space in the typical machine. Another large design element on PC cases is the placement of fans, and for those in the pursuit of performance, liquid cooling systems. In both systems consumers often look for fans with integrated LEDs especially if they are of the same brand as the case, for they can be controlled in sync.

Finally, it seems that customization is on the fore-front of consumers minds, and in response computer part manufacturers host a diverse spectrum of products. To design ones personal PC aesthetic many people opt for futuristic case designs or wall mounted cases as seen below. Along with the case almost every product within a PC case has a wide variety of designs. Graphics cards, mother boards, CPU coolers, RAM, and fans can all be be purchased with LEDs, wild paint jobs, or plastic covers to create a custom look.
