No, but there is such a thing as overkill. Full towers are huge, almost as tall as a table. You don't need something that big for a basic machine.

Here is my friends rig in a mid tower 600t with 2 680s and 4 4TB drives to give you an idea. They aren't any longer than the motherboard.

I don't have a pick of my Blackhawk, but that thing is massive!, though my sr-2 fits in it well.

He runs a RAID 5 setup so 6 or so TB is lost, but most of it is filled with all the stuff he copied from my old 8TB storage setup.

Does your dealer carry cube cases like this one?

I got mine $80 off at Newegg. It's made for extreme gamers which I am not but the cooling is great and quiet.
