Good looking, versatile and sturdy case with the builder in mind.

Summary: This is the best case I've ever bought. It is super strong and so versatile that you can configure it many different ways to fit your needs. It has a mind boggling number of slots for hard drives and you can remove many of them for better ventilation or larger video cards, etc. The handles and enclosure are made out of steel which makes it very sturdy. I bought it in the first place because I wanted the handles and I am not disappointed.
Summary: Case will fit any size motherboard, however most motherboards have their sata ports oriented towards the front of the case. This can cause the cables to rub against the hard drive cages. They are easy to remove but if you have a lot of drives this case isn't a good choice. If it has 1 more inch between the hard drives and the motherboard it would be perfect.
Built sturdy and has all the features I needed after downsizing ...

Summary: Received this case from Amazon last week. Overall it is typical Cooler Master case. Built sturdy and has all the features I needed after downsizing from the Cooler Master HAF X. During the installation of all my hardware, EVGA GTX 680 SC in an SLI format, Asus Deluxe Motherboard, Blue Ray Burners, 1000 watt power supply and the new Cooler Master Nepton 280L two major problems that I did not count on popped up.
Summary: This is not a full tower but rather than full mid tower in my word (not high as a full tower but bigger than a mid tower)... just enough room for everything I need. I love the handle on the top. It is easy to carry and move.
Summary: While i would like to read reviews on this case every review was from the Cosmos II witch is a larger case and not the same as this one. Please Fix it as it would be nice to see reviews about this case and not the other.
Summary: I have a Asus Maximus IV mobo in here, and I had to remove the HDD section right where the front intake fans are because my sata connections were blocked. There are a lot of grommets as well but some get covered up if you're going with a ATX board in here. I got a Corsair h100i for xmas and installed it in the case inside at the top, wasn't too difficult.
Pros: Very nice look, easy cable management in the back
Summary: When i recieved my case, i was very happy with the look and style of the case. I immidiatly started to take all the parts out of my old case to put into this new one. first i started with my MOBO, it fit, but it seemed quite cramped. it covered most of the wire conceling holes. Next was the power supply. It has to be pushed into the case from the back of it cause some "expansion bracket" type piece needs to be put on it.
