^^lol^^ impreza why dont you have an OS??

mid tower for me. for one, a good full tower cost waaaaaaaaaaaay more than i am willing to spend on a case...
plus, i have a small table that it sits on and a full tower would be too much.
plus, i just think they look funny with just one optical drive in them and all those blank spaces.
plus, i dont think i will ever have 18 hard drives i need space for, lol.
the centurion 5 i am currently using has 5 hard drive bays (im using 2 ATM), and 4 open 5.25 bays that can be converted. 9 hard drives should be a-plenty, i'd think.
the watercooling is a good point, but i would want my components on the outside in any event in case of a catasrophic leak of some sort. of course, that wouldnt do any good if it was the cpu block leaking heh.

i move it around, changing parts, lying it on its side, wire management, adding new parts etc etc so often that a heavy full tower would be a PITA.

I say full tower. My first build was a mid tower but switching to a full tower allows for watercooling if you ever decide to. My cm stacker was heavier than **** but my Lian li is nice and light. Tough choice I like both but if you can, and have the room for it why not get a full tower.

I have always gone Full Tower. I really don't like the cramped mid tower cases. I am looking right now for an upgraded case from the COSMOS to something else that can support my watercooling loops internally.

For the most part all full towers, save for old school ones from the 90's are aluminum now.
My Armor is steel. Sucker weighs like 60 pounds. Didn't want to pay the extra 20 or 30 for the aluminum case.
