Need help deciding mid or full tower

I have my entire build planned for both mid and full tower cases, both have just about the same hardware. Both are single card (980ti) with wireless ac build into the MBs. I might go sli in the future, might not tho. The 2 cases I am debating between are the H440 and 760T. I will for sure be adding a sound card and elgato in them in the next year or so. From this could you maybe give me some insight on which is better for me.

760T. the airflow potential is much better than the H440.

I know in theory that is great, but in practice how much of a difference is that thermal wise.

I was also going to remove the sound dampening foam in some spots

Thats why I love the 760t but the all black H440 is so clean looking too

get rid of the "/edit/" part as that is linked to your account and wont work for anyone else

your MASSIVELY over paying on that ram... you can find comparable ram for $100 or for still less than that Dominator, you can grab better ram (2 links, same ram, different color): https://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f43200c14d16gvr or https://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f43200c14d16gvk

aside from that, looks good

I'll go with mid towers & the smaller the better. A build with more than two high end GPUs is just too over the top for general use unless you're into extreme overclocking record.

I am now leaning more towards full-towers, although it may change, because of: expandability, cable management, and just more room in general.

a downside is also cable management... lol, its easier to route them, but many times you may find a psu cable is too short...

nah, if your buying an expensive system and modular psu, its all about the custom cables :P

That's a custom item at the bottom of the parts list, EVGA Individualy sleeved Black cables. If I need to I can get an extension tho.
