J_E_D_70 December 3, 2012 6:59:02 PM The Thor V2 is a well-reviewed full tower if you are stuck on huge.

Very true fishyslish December 4, 2012 6:00:01 AM I've been looking at the corsair obsidian 650D but i dont know if it will fit all of these components? zared619 December 4, 2012 12:24:52 PM It would fit everything, but why would you spend so much on a mid tower? They make full towers that start around $100, and you can some really nice full towers any in between $100 and $200. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
