    This poll is for your main rig only. Only applies for ATX form factor.

    I went back to mid from full. Used to have a load of hardware to fit in the case. Now that I swapped to SSD's I removed the 5,25" rack from a mid tower and going to screw the SSD's to the bottom. That way there is more than enough space for a full size videocard and two big coolers.

    How will you fit an ATX board in a micro case though?

    I sort of wish I had a mid tower. It's a pain lugging this full tower around esp since I don't have a lot of hardware to cram in it. Maybe I can peddle a ghetto looking mid tower off my uncle... heh

    NZXT Tempest FTW. Although the plastic on the case really fucks me off. As soon as I get my WC kit I'm painting the inside of ma case :)

    Massive case - won't have it any other way . . .

    sucks, though, sometimes PSU cables aren't long enough . . . then ya gotta break out the soldering gun and heat shrink :ohwell:

    Full for me, HAF932, great case but I may replace it with a 922 in the future as I don't need a full tower, but it made life easier with my GTX260 (now with aftermarket cooling) and 3 WD6400AAKS drives in comparison to my old Antec 900 mid tower.
