Mid tower over full tower.
Even if the internal dimensions are harder to work with in my option it is better than the larger size.

Next build I hope to get in a fractal design arc midi would have gotten the mini but watercooling wouldn't have been so good.

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:

I've also worked with some midi towers and they often just lack that bit of extra space. So full tower for me.

Mid Tower! Internal Space is important but what's the use if you can't find a place to place it :whistling:

I like working in a Full Tower the most but Mid Towers seem the most convenient when it comes to space.
