    Can anyone recommend a good mid PC case please for under £70?

    Looking for a nice quality case which does not break the bank

    Any recommendations please?

    Those are more full towers though, it's a bit of a stretch to describe them as mid-sized.

    I was looking at the CoolCube Maxi/Jonbo V4 the other day, that's quite an interesting medium case. Around 1/3 of the size of the two suggested above:

    That is for micro/mini, not full size boards.

    Full sized these days is MicroATX. Look at any list of home desktops for sale and the majority will have 2-4 expansion slots which is MicroATX territory.

    ATX is extra-large, for those that need multiple graphics cards or lots of expansion cards.

    That's great intill OP buys an ATX board and tries to fit it in a M-ATX case. Either way the cool cube isn't a mid tower.

    The OP never said anything about an ATX board or about wanting a tower style case. It's a fair assumption than anyone after a mid-sized case will be buying a mid-sized motherboard.

    As for it not being a mid-tower, it's the same width as the two tower cases linked above (24cm vs. 23.5cm and 23.2cm). It just looks squarer because it doesn't have all the extra depth and height needed for a bazillion drives, huge water cooling radiators or other exotic setups.

    This is the case I have , there are other designs of a similar price available if you don't like it, but it comes under budget and is of decent quality , it's also microATX but will take a full ATX mobo.

    I've found it to be a good case and has plenty of space (room for 5 fans, full ATX board, 2-3 graphics cards and about 5 hard drives which have their own fixing trays + 2 optical drives and has USB 3 headers and mic and headphone port, i also managed to fit one of those huge hyper 212evo CPU coolers inside mine!)

    Also has filtered front and removable filter for the psu on the bottom, thumb screws on the rear of the side panel so you can easily remove to clean .

    I do really rate corsair cases and can recommend them.
