Pros: Nice-looking, seems to ventilate quite well. Great price.
Cons: Developed a rattling problem emanating from the inner wall on the right side of the case after a few months of use. Only occurs when playing video games, so must be related to resonance with the graphics card fan.
Summary: I've read complaints of the fragility of the tool-less connectors and the thin walls. Well, this isn't a top-end case. With that said, I found no trouble whatsoever installing all of my components. There were no sharp edges and, once together, the case is sturdy and has a nice look and feel to it.
Pros: Tool-less design. Includes fans and power supply. ample room for disc drives and HDD's. Easy to use. Clean look. Front fan has blue light. Front header cable are sufficiently long.
Summary: Granted with the price of this case you shouldn't expect everyting the be grade A, however with the Cooler Master name I would have thought they would use a little thicker metal on the sides, or at least build in some supports to tighten it up.
Pros: Good price for a nice sized mid tower. Purchased this for a customer build that didnt need a "gamer" case. Looks really conservative, but has great air venting design, which doesn't surprise me on a CM case. Good straight forward design inside, with the plain front to back hard drive mounts. The ...
Cons: The side panel thickness is kind of sad, a little too thin and flexable when removed (this is the reason for 4 egg rating) The frame and overall build quality are great, but those side panels leave a bit to be desired! See other thoughts
Summary: Study frame but metal skin is thinner than expected It's been 18 months and I am starting to make tech-free mechs to replace broken ones or add optical and hard drives
Pros: Stylin looks and tool-free mechs (tired of dropping screws that are up for hide and seek)
Cons: Tool-Free mechs are soft plastic and break easy Pack did not supply tool-free mechs for every slot, last search I found them on a site across the pond in jolly UK Both side panels need to be removed to get access tool-free mechs
Summary: This case does NOT include a blue lighted fan up front as shown in the picture. In fact there is no fan in front, and I would recommend you add a quiet 120mm fan up front for better airflow.
Pros: Plenty of room to work in this case. Almost completely tool-less installation including a couple of thumbscrews for the left side cover.
Cons: The tool-less card holder and drive snaps are workable and make for a fast build. But neither seem all that tight/secure, and the plastic was worn down a little just from removing and attaching them one or two times. You might end up using screws.
Summary: In the big view the mount problem is not that big of a problem. The clean look of the case for outways this problem and the side venting tunnel over the cpu is a great idea, kudos collermaster.
Pros: Sharp looking all vlack finish. good amount of room for an average build computer. lot of hard dribe bays. Great side cooling vents, but dont come with fans buy some extras, they will be worth it.
Cons: The system for mounting drives is allthough coolermaster (which if know for good easy systems) is suprizingly hard to use. You have to open both panels to put them in, which id always a hassel when you need to put the computer togther in a jiffy. The plasic locker for the bays also break esaly.
Summary: going to stick two more fans in this thing. Don't let the extensive list of cons mislead you, this really is a good deal. Just hope you don't need tech support.
Pros: A good value. Feels solid, good airflow, looks good, nice big fan in the back. The latching expansion slots are almost worth the price of the entire case. Once I solved the grounding issue, It's been everything that I need, and for 40$
Cons: Coolermaster's tech support is atrocious. I had a grounding issue, wound up figuring it out myself after giving up on the guy in chat, who kept insisting I was wiring things wrong when I wasn't. Also, the tool-less drive mounts are poorly designed and cheaply made. one broke completely when mount...
