Top-3 of the best Full- and UltraTower cases for gaming PC

Corsair Obsidian 900D CC-9011022-WW System Cabinet Tower

Corsair Obsidian 900D Cabinet TowerIs a real monster that is able to hold up to two power supplies, liquid-cooling system and a whole pile of drives. And even if with a liquid-cooling system the case remains quite spacious, imagine the amount of coolers that can be installed (almost any of the existing variations). In terms of design nothing new can be noticed - the same ascetic strictness. And it's fair: in order to show the complete awesomeness of configuration one does not require bells and whistles - the size clearly hints at powerful configuration.

BitFenix ATX (Shinobi XL) Full Tower Case Without Power Supply

BitFenix ATX (Shinobi XL) Full Tower Case BitFenix brand entered the market a while ago, but with every model the manufacturer proves that not only the "oldsters" of the industry are able to deliver a quality product. We have already reviewed the Mini-Tower from BitFenix, today Full-Tower case has drawn our attention, which at first glance seems ultralarge.

The case looks really impressive, however, the category here is still just Full - and this for ~$178.80. The first question that arises is how in fact to cool this monster, if walls of a case are completely closed? However, even without them, the case is well ventilated with the help of the front and the rear cooler. And you shouldn't forget that such a case can hold a liquid cooling system, for which there is definitely enough space.

Corsair Graphite Series 780T Full Tower PC Case

Corsair Graphite Series 780T Full Tower PC Case

Another masterpiece from Corsair is available for ~$169.99. Remember, we have already reviewed a mini-model with the similar design in Mini-Tower cases review? This lot is for all those who liked it, but gamer's spirit requires more space inside the case. But in large-scale models design is not so important, the most important aspect is capacity. And 780T copes with this task perfectly - read customers reviews on Amazon.com, to make sure. Here the main attention is paid to the capacity for drivers and wide opportunities of upgrade of the cooling system, which due to perforation and high ventilation of the case will work well even with minimal configuration. And if not, then compatibility with liquid cooling systems will be helpful. It is the choice for fans of a catchy gaming design that does not diminish its significant size.

Summary:

Full-Tower cases are definitely not for everyone. Choosing such, consider whether or not you require such a whopper at your home. Perhaps the "iron" ambitions will fit into a mid-size tower, if not into a mini-tower?
