Though mid-tower chassis continue to prove popular among PC builders, there is plenty of choice for those wanting to try something different. Full-tower behemoths are an obvious attraction for enthusiast rigs, and if you're inclined to downsize, there's a wide range of small-form-factor or home-theatre enclosures. Heck, if space is really at a premium, there's always a NUC.

We're curious to know what size is preferred by our readers, so for this week's question we're asking: what size is your PC chassis? Let us know using the comments facility below.

Full Tower, needed to be to fit an SSI EEB motherboard.
Main rig is matx and I suppose you'd class the case as a ‘mini’ tower, my other rig is in a ‘cube’ case.

Depending on what I build next it will either be a full atx tower (work) as I need more space for parts or a mini itx compact build (gaming)… having said that I do like the idea of playing around with a raspberry pi for media streaming etc so who knows.
Presently ITX, but wouldn't mind going back to midi. Just easier to work with them and get to the bits inside.
Full tower (243 x 586 x 577 - WxHxD mm - according to the specs for mine on Scan), to ensure as much space for cooling as possible to be effective, plenty of hard drive and SSD bays for future-proofing, and plenty of space to fit any add-in cards, including whatever GPU may come next, without having to worry about them not fitting - also for future-proofing.

My intention is to continue using the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 rev.2 for any future builds that succeed my current one, so there are definitely no plans whatsoever to go to anything smaller in future.
Dimensions 230 x 380 x 585 mm ( W, D, H) (Super mid tower case).

I got it because I liked the depth part, it's less than normal towers. Did consider Matx / Mitx on the last build but couldn't find a case that I liked.
