I'm looking at a new system build and I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with a large mid tower that is big enough to accommodate a 10.5 inch GTX card without interfering with the hard drive cages, wide enough to support one of the taller CPU heat sinks (Coolermaster V8 size) and gets good airflow.

I know it's asking for a lot in a mid tower. I have a full size picked out if none exist, but I just wanted to see if anyone had some ideas I may have overlooked in my hours of browsing.

Thanks in advance, everyone.

The CM 690 and Antec 300 (budget) /900 (mid-level) /902 (mid-level/enthusiast) /1200 (enthusiast) are very popular mid tower cases that will satisfy you're requirements.

Most popular choices in mid towers for best airflow and enough space is the cm rc-690/antec 900-902.

Also if you have the money, The CM Storm Sniper

My personal favorite is the Cooler Master 690. I used for my latest build. Its not a fancy looking case, but it is built VERY well with all aluminum and has awesome airflow and plenty of places ready to put extra fans. Also its very roomy inside which makes it perfect for any PC. Especially a gaming PC where you might need the extra airflow to keep your system cool.

i have not had any experience with the Antec cases, but from what Ive read on the forums, they seem like they are also very good. Either one you should be very happy with.

Recently built my i7 system using a CM-690 as recommended on these forums. All of my future machines will use this case. Simply the perfect mid-tower.

another 690 fan. it has ample space for HDD's and Optical drives, nice fan placement and room for big ole 10+" video cards. I tend to fat finger delicate projects so the extra room inside the 690 is a big plus.

for the price you can't beet the cm 690. the antec 900 is very nice as well (really personal preference there)

the HAF 922 is just a beautiful piece of work...

I almost went with the CM 690, but then I was shown the HAF 922. It's freaking huge, and I think I'm in love. I really considered the Antec 900 for a long time, but the HAF 922 is an inch and a half wider and I think that will greatly come in handy with the heatsink.

Thank you everyone for your responses.

I've got a 900 /w a scythe mugen 2, 4890, sound card, non-modular psu, 4x sata HDDs, 1x IDE HDD and 2x optical drives. I had to cut a few holes for cable management, but it all fit :) 

Any of those cases will fit anything you want to put in it, just find the one that fits you're budget/weird-case-fashion tastes :)

Those cases will do you just fine, any of them.

Im running a centurion 590 with a gtx 285 in it, s1283 heatsink on my e8500, 800w psu.
