Full Tower Case
A full tower case is the largest standard PC case available on the market. These units
are big, heavy and at two to three feet in height, are intended to be installed on the
floor. (I had one on my desk at work once but then, I'm weird. It was butt-ugly.)
Towers are the most flexible, expandable cases, with many drive bays to support a large
number of internal devices. They normally come with larger power supplies to support these
devices (but not always) and since they are so roomy, they are the easiest to work in and
the best at keeping components from overheating. This makes them the choice of many power
users and homebuilders. They are, naturally, also the most expensive type of case.
A full tower case. Note the five 5.25" drive bays,
the extended stabilizing feet at the bottom.
