    I really like the new HAF case. My only concern is it is a Mid Tower case. I'm partial to full towers. Full towers do take up a little more room, but it's worth it if you happen to be the one working inside it. But, the looks of that case is really nice and the way they did the back is really great. I may end up with a mid tower anyway, who knows.

    There was a time when i used full towers. Things were waist high. But over time i found i didn't need all that room. Then, when midtower cases became larger, it was a done deal for me. I only run 1 video card and haven't had more than 2 hard drives in a desktop for a long time. Others run a lot more hardware than i do,

    I remember about 5 years ago when laptops started going without optical drives and people were losing their minds. I don't think I have had one in about 4 years now. I do keep an external DVD Burner at home, but I've only used it a couple of times.
    When I bought my first notebook 4 years, being I wanted small and light, I knew I wasn't getting an optical drive but that wasn't a problem. When I recently purchased my Lenovo, again, being small and light, no optical drive. Again, that was fine. That said, I do have a portable external drive in case I need it for the notebooks. I rarely use it though.

    As for desktop, I do require one because I'm a music collector who still collects CD's, (as well as vinyl), and prefer to rip music from CD's as opposed to downloading from the net. That's me. And I don't need any speeches about space savings and all that sort, I'm a collector, space is the price

    This is less than half of my collection...

    That is one heck of a flag display case. Air Force? if I saw the insignia right. I need to do a nice display case for my dad and grandfather.

    Best way you are going to break OC records and stay at the top of our leaderboards with a new build is with a top quality air flow full tower. Yes?
