Gifts for Your Significant PC Gamer


For that extra special someone in you’re life, we’ve gathered some gift ideas that would make any PC gamer happy. All of the gift ideas in this category are primary components and PC gamers may already own one or more of them so be sure to hint around and see which option is best for you.

If you’re tired of looking at that same old case and you think their setup needs some NZXT aesthetics, grab a new case that’s worthy of being displayed. It’s a great way to give an old system a fresh new look and an excuse for you to finally match the case with the rest of your setup. The price point varies but we’ve included some of our clean and modern cases that will look nice with any hardware. If you’d like more options, be sure to visit our NZXT store for a complete list of all of our cases.

Here are 3 cases PC gamers love:




Features integrated RGB lighting and built-in fan control.




Perfect for silent gaming and massive cooling support.


S340 Elite


Showcases builds with crisp clarity and also has front panel VR support.

CPU Coolers

If the PC gamer on your shopping list games as much as we do, their CPU is sure to heat up during those long gaming sessions. Gift them a new AIO CPU cooler and help them keep that CPU nice a cool this winter. Our NZXT infinity mirror is also great for those systems that need a bit of that NZXT RGB flare. For those of you who are feeling extra generous this year, all of these options work with the cases mentioned above. If you are unsure on which one to choose, check out our guide on NZXT Kraken AIO Liquid coolers.
