I like the mid tower, but has to have a decent amount of room , and decent wire mgmt.
Also a bonus if it will fit a rad and fans up top. Am I asking for too much ?

Sometimes Mid-ATX seems to be the more to traditional way to go with them gettin' a bit wider and all.

 

I am not sure, something about people getting

 

Full Tower ATX Cases for better "Cord Management" and added "Case Fans"

 

Shucks,

 

I am not sure.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Full Tower.

In most of the time when I've the opportunity to fit in a full tower chassis, I would buy it. Why? I love to play with space inside a chassis.

In some special cases, mid-tower chassis could also be considered (i.e. my 650D, because of it's semi-full tower capability)

I have built in all the different sizes but the most fun I have had building recently has been in the ITX. I love the fact that my system can be so small and give me back space around my desk without sacrificing any performance. Second choice is the mid tower, best compromise between space and cost.

Full size, I think my biggest mistake with building PCs was not getting a full size soon enough.
