What is a mid tower PC?
A computer case, also known as a computer chassis, tower, system unit or cabinet, is the enclosure that contains most of the components of a computer (usually excluding the display, keyboard and mouse).
Any standard ATX case will fit any standard ATX motherboard but dosn't necessarily support Micro ATX or Mini ATX. It depends on the mid tower. I have a full tower and even though it's easily big enough to fit them it dosn't support Mini ATX, Flex ATX or EmbATX.
