The Best Mid Tower (Micro ATX) Cases for PC

Several types of cases are available in the market but the most popular are divided into three categories which are Full Tower, Mid Tower, and Mini Tower. The main thing that needs to note down before buying a case is the size of the motherboard and port or slots required in the expansion of the build. In this, we are going to suggest the best Mid-Tower cases as well as guide you on which case will suit best on your build and what makes these cases different.

Full Tower cases are large in size, typically the height of full tower cases is 56 cm to 60 cm, and it can easily adjust ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini ITX size motherboard. It is made for professionals or gamers. A full tower case has enough space to install multiple components like a CPU cooler, latest graphics card, and more storage bays or expansion slots. Moreover, it has ample space to manage the trace cable and to incorporate the liquid cooling system.
