Comparison of Case Styles
The table below compares and summarizes the different case styles and their advantages and disadvantages.
Note: The number of bays
depends on the case, but the numbers given are typical ranges based on what I usually see
. For external bays, the first number is how many 3.5" bays the case typically will
have, and the second is how many 5.25" bays. Internal bays are usually 3.5".
Power supply ratings are measured in watts (W) and are just what is typical for the style.
Getting a full tower case is no guarantee of a 300 watt power supply, but it's much more
likely to find one in a full tower than a mini tower.
