You might be right. Just my question: What has longer life? Mobo with CPU or Full tower case with excelent air flow and very low noise?....you don't have to buy always new case if you upgrade hardware? That's my just 2cents

I unfortunately always get a new case because I like to keep the old machines running and just upgrade others around the house.

I also don't think it's necessary to have a Full tower case to get excellent air flow and low noise. I've got some Antec Sonata II's that are mid-size and they are still appropriate for almost all installations these days and are very, very quiet.

My current case, the Antec P182 is the closest that I have ever had to a full tower. I went with this case to keep the wiring as clean as possible....but in all honesty...it's a bit bulky and unnecessary for my needs. I will likely go back to a smaller case on my next build.

I need a new case cause the current one doesnt have any fans in it. And i can only put two 60mm (i think) fans in it. I dont think that will be enough for hardcore gaming later on. So i would rather get a new case with the new build.
