Temp Wise and Cooling I think the tech station wins, though a well-managed case can rival it. I think a tech station is great if you change parts often or even semi-often, but a case is better if you rarely change parts. Also, depending on who you live with it might be an issue, such as kids or pets. The last thing you wanna worry about is if your cat sat on your computer.

Overall, I'd say the tech station wins if you live by yourself and temps are important. For anything else I'd say get a case.

Unless you have alot of room, a case might be a better idea.

Otherwise I would go with a tech station.
