  1. Full tower case is only worth it if you totally need the space.
    I have one, and it's only needed due to Massive custom watercooling setup
    otherwise i would have used a smaller tower is i was air cooling my PC

    It's all about what you need/want and how you want to set it up

    Asking weather cooling is better between case sizes is no good, as cooling is different between each case in general even in the same size

    If the main concern is for cooling, no. Most well designed mid towers are more than adequate for cooling with the proper components. Full towers are best for those that need the extra room for more components; i.e. drives. The mid tower case in my sig has never had a heat issue with 2 GTX 570s. I have a 200mm front, 140mm side, and 120mm rear fans with filtered/vented top.

    hey thanks
    I think maybe I'll just go with the mid tower then!
    Hey by any chance do you play Battlefield 3? Just asking, because that's my most demanding game I own, and that's why I'm upgrading to a new desktop pc. I really like your setup! It's almost identical to what I have been looking at!

    I have BF3 and have played it a bit. But 'playing tag w/guns' has never interested me. Not that I fault anyone else for enjoying it, though.
