Default Re: The Perfect Mid Tower ATX Case.

I think you'll find everyone's opinion on what's important in a case is different. If I hadn't been given a decent case for my first build, I would have bought for looks and price. After doing my first build, I've learned how extremely important airflow is. Now that I know this, if I ever buy another case I will def. look airflow and how much room there is to work inside.

I like the idea of a handle, as long as it doesn't take too much away from the case, and doesn't stand out.

Wheels, I don't think are necassary. But the feet being made to easily slide without scratching would be nice.

Wheels are good on large/heavy machines but not really necessary on smaller/lighter machines.

This is a great suggestion, and very practical advice.
If I make larger cases, I'll consider wheels on them.
Smaller cases, nope.

Though I will have sturdy rubber feet or possibly a silica gel type feet. (The kind on the bottom of some laser mouses.)

I believe the Razr Salmosa has some of the gel material I'm referring to.

My Antec Solo has the type of feet I believe you're referring to. Buyers of smaller cases will appreciate the height reduction of feet over wheels as well.
