Upgrading my pre built


So I bought microcenter's G438 pc which has good parts except for the case, how do I choose a new case that fits? I also need to get fans

    im not sure with the tower, thats on you. mid or full or mini. ?? air or liquid? how much you willing to spend?? how much space you want and need? i can tell you the cheapest fans and compete with top notch noctua. Get Artic p12 fans you can get 5 packs for 30 + bucks. Micro center has it or Amazon.  Airflow: 56.3 CFM/95.65 m³/h (@ 1800 RPM), Noise Level: 0.3 Sone (@ 1800 RPM), Pin: 3-pin. Phantek (PH-F120T30_BG_3P) thick fans beats the noctua Noctua NF-A12x25 comes in 3 packs for 80-90 bucks, make sure you got room for this fan they are thick boys. lol

    if im not mistaken the Artic P12 come in a whooping 10 years warranty. if you want light and rgb cheap but good ARCTIC BioniX P120 A-RGB 3 pack for 70 (amazon) 400-2300 RPM, Airflow: 48 CFM/81.55 m³/h, Noise level: 0.45 Sone, Static Pressure: 2.1 mm/H2O, 2x A-RGB Fan 8-pin Connector somewhat has daisy chained to make it eassier to assemble.

    Microcenter's house brand PCs use standard parts so any case will fit (except specific mini sized cases). What are you looking for in a new case exactly?
