Both aluminium and steel have their advantages, and usually, gamers are in favour of one over the other. Those who prefer steel cases do so because of their durability and soundproofed qualities. Steel is far less likely to scar and dent compared to aluminium. With its thickness and durability, it also keeps noise levels and rattling to a minimum. Steel is also more reasonable than aluminium, a benefit if you plan on building a system of your own.

As for aluminium, the biggest advantage is that it’s lightweight, making it a popular choice for people who move their computers around a lot. LAN party fans especially appreciate this feature. It’s sleek, simple and modern, bringing the same qualities to the body of the gaming computer.
