Default Re: Full Tower vs Mid Tower Cases

Full towers are pretty pricey, and if you pick the right mid tower its just as good if not better than a full tower. I have a NZXT tempest and I love it. Cable managment could be better, but im lazy and it dosent have much room to hide cables away so they sit tied up on the floor of a hdd bay.

Airflow is excellent btw, 3 intake 3 exhaust fans

thanks for all the info. the reason i ask is im thinking getting a full tower instead of a mid because i am more than likely going to be adding new components to it and i dont want to be worrying about will it fit

I brought my current 'full tower' case from WorshipMe a while ago now and i'll have it for a while yet. I upgraded cause my previous tower just didn't have the space.

It's well built, removable mobo tray, E-ATX/BTX/Inverted/Non inverted mobo layout, 11 bays, twin PSU, etc. It's big and heavy and its on wheels but I love it.

As long as you got the space go for a 'Full Tower' case.

There's only a few parts that won't fit in mid tower cases though.

The only ones you might ever have to deal with are huge video cards. Either way, you can always make them fit.
