Default help with a good full size tower

So I have all my components, and today was the first day I had to set up my rig, but my mobo is a no go in the case I have. Any suggestions good people?

Motherboard is asrock z87 extreme4.

That motherboard is a standard ATX, you don't need a full tower.

I highly recommend Coolermaster HAF series Cases, HAF 932, HAF935, HAFX all come to mind. I have the HAF932, plenty of room Cooling and expandability in the future.

Then your midtower must be mATX because I have an ASRock Extreme6 X79 inside a Raidmax Scorpio midtower from 2003. Like I said, it's standard ATX, you just need a midtower that is for standard ATX sized boards.

If you want full towers then by all means, Obsidian 800, HAF X, ect. Those are for people who have more than 3 GPUs, a full custom water loop or two, several HDDs. You get the picture. More space doesn't mean better airflow either. If you fit the above category now or in the near future then go for a full tower. Otherwise I highly suggest against it because it's a lot of wasted space and metal for nothing.
