I'm currently looking for opinions and/or information on Midsized/Full size towers.

1.) Preferably with a 2.5" mount drive bay for a SSD
2.) High ratings on the cooling system
3.) Has the ability to add additional fans or upgrade the cooling system
4.) Can easily fit all the other necessary hardware components. Preferably has the option and plenty of room for 2 graphic cards.

I personally will always have a full tower case. They are roomy, better air flow, better options for add ins, such as video cards, water cooling, additional fans, hard drive bays, etc. My personal favorite is the Corsair Obsidian 800D. It has everything you could want and some. Hot swap Hdd bays, wire management out the wazoo, and plenty of air flow. But the case is really big. Personally I like having all that room, Keeps things from getting too close to one another.

Or this case by thermaltake has a lot of really neat options:

But if you want a mid size case then I would recommend these:

But if you are planning on running a SLI or Crossfire configuration, going with the full size case will make a big difference on keeping your temps low.

Good Luck!

Depends completely on the budget...if you have $300 to spend on a case- then the Obsidian D is for you- personally i rather spend the extra bucks on extra performance.
The thermal-take Armor a60 is what i believe your looking for:

it's cheap- made well- has USB 3.0 support- Looks Amazing- and has a high airflow.

But if your not like me- and want to impress your friends, how about :

or- abit more practical - and actually my favorite (If i had the money at the mo):
