Hi, I was wondering what is a good ATX case?
I would like it to have good cooling and either be a mid tower to full tower.
Thanks. :)

the Aopen full tower is the best, if you go to virturalhideout.net most of the mods their are on Aopen cases cus they are so easy to use

The Addtronics or Supermicro (they are pretty much the same) are both very very good. The Antec full tower is liked a whole lot too.

I like the Lite on. If you don't mind the noise of 120s, and you don't want to hack up your case you should check out this case.

Antec 830 tower with the "car door" handle on the side panel. Great cooling and great design

Sniper564.....I've got one of those KS-188's and it's great. I mod'ed the front to accept an old Gateway2000 grill. Put (2) 120mm 24v fans behind that and one 80mm in the bottom front.(he's on wheels) They allow for a couple 80mm at the back,too.

Plenty of room.....very good PSU. Fit and finish is very good. Even with the hot weather we get here the system temps' stay pretty much @ ambient. Can't beat this one for the money.

I would go enlight, only because everyone seems to love that case for its room.

I agree In particular the addtronics extra series ending in -96 are great, since they use a factory installed 12cm fan in front.

They are not cheap but very well manufactured and provide easy access. If you are interested get one without the P/S from their website, and provide your own 430W or so. That way you can get a 6896 for $80. An addtional $90 for a good Enermax 430W PS is not excessive, and the whole thing is ready to roll at $170.
