  1. basically,
    full tower= biggest mainstream case you will get, often come at a price.
    mid tower= between full tower and mATX, almost always supports ATX motherboards
  2. A full tower would allow for more components and potentially a greater amount of cooling. However, a mid tower is usually plenty for the average person. For instance, this has been a very popular case for years:

    Unless you have plans to build a system that specifically requires a full tower case, a mid tower option will most likely suffice.
  3. Best answer
    Unless you actually need all the extra drive bays, possible extra fan mounts or interior space to mount stuff like phase-change compressor or custom water loop components, full-tower is not worth the trouble.

    With most cables and accessories today designed around mid-tower dimensions, you might run into surprises trying to fit 'standard' accessories in a full tower.
  4. ok thats a good point. any suggestions for a good mid tower case that has great cooling with a bold look/ cool look

  6. If you want something really unusual in more ways than one with "great airflow", the Antec Skeleton probably fits the bill.

    I personally am more of a practical type, I would be more interested in a "silentified" version of Antec's 302.
  7. i like the 302 but my only issue is that it doesnt seem to have the greatest cooling.
