I have around 8 desktop Mid Tower machines that I have to repeatedly ship all across the country via UPS. The current cases that I have for these machines are not particularly durable - they're not plastic and are mostly metal, but the sides can cave in, hard disk cages break off, etc. during transit, even though I do have foam padding around them (albeit it's not more than an inch and a half - I'm currently limited by the size of our standard shipping boxes).

Does anyone have suggestions for mid tower ATX cases that can take a good beating during constant shipping trips across the united states, and still stay together?

When I was purchasing PC's from boutique builders Velocity Micro and Maingear, they always used aluminum cases from Lian-Li or Silverstone that were fairly expensive.  Lian-Li makes expensive, though durable, cases.  You can try LIAN LI PC-7B plus II or the LIAN LI PC-9NA.  If you don't mind spending a lot of money, the Phanteks Evolv PH-ES515E_AG is good.  Antec Performance One Series P183 and Antec P100 are also sturdy.

good morning to all,


regarding a good mid tower case, my very own personal opinion is for the zalman zm-z1 and  z3 plus mid tower


these case are really very cheap (eshop cyprus) at 39 euros for the zm-z1 and 54 euros for the z3 plus black


the zm-z1 comes with two 120 mm fans (intake/exhaust) while the z3 plus comes with four fans (intake/exhaust and top)


you can install a long video card up to 360 mm and a cpu cooler with height up to 150 mm


the quality of the cases is also impressive


personally i want to buy the z3 plus but i don't know how i can connect all those four fans the same time my motherboard have only two fan connectors (one four pin for the cpu cooler and one 3 pins for a case fan)


those tow zalman case received some very good reviews


good luck
