I am planing on building a SFF ryzen build for LAN parties\air travel. I am torn between a cooler master Q500L or Q300P . I need to have a carry handle and will be using X570 motherboards 1 or 2 front RGB fans so I will need to go all the way down to mini ITX if I get the micro ATX case . I would also like some semblance of durability. Thank you for any help I get.

A side window could cause you issues, durability wise. Glass and acrylic can easily be broken, so I would recommend against it. This would be easily portable.
