Summary: I built the computer as a small cased gaming setup and it does the job well. This case fits a full sized heatsink ( Ultra U12-40655 Carbon X5 Multi-Socket CPU Cooler ) which combined with this case's potential airflow lets me overclock my i3 and stay cool under extended periods of full load. A larger case would get better airflow, but for the price this little tower does better than others I had considered.
Summary: I bought this case for a new build. The metal is not as heavy as most but it is well made. The parts fit well as did the components I added. The internal cables are well marked, of generous length and the rear fan is as quiet as a whisper. For the price, this is a real bargin.
Summary: I bought this for my first ever build and I didn't want a huge case for a HTPC. This one turned out very nice. The HD holders seemed flimsy at first, but once the drives are attached they really tighten up. My cable maintenance wasn't that great but once I got them routed properly things cooled off quite a bit. My original cpu fan did a decent job with average use but I've been doing a lot of video intensive stuff and cpu temps were hovering around 70c.
Summary: The Cooler Master 341 is a good case, but it's not great--the metal is somewhat thin; however, it is sturdy and isn't flimsy (where the whole case will flex and warp). Other than that, it looks good, and I'm sure it will hold up so long as it doesn't get kicked, gouged, dented or other kinds of abuse.
Summary: Great micro ATX case for the price. Pros:Built-in 120mm fan is very quiet and provides enough airflow for my bottom mounted hard disk, AMD Phenom II X4 w/stock cooler and Nvidia GTS450 series graphics card. Easy to work with. As any micro ATX build, planning ahead is key. Tool-less drive bays and card mounting in back. Affordable price. Cons: Difficult to remove front panel to clean intake filter. Sheet metal is thin these days compared to 6 years ago.
Summary: At first the case seemed very light weight and flimsy but once you put all the bits and pieces in and tighten it all up it has enough heft to "feel" right. I added some felt pads on the hard plastic feet to provide some more vibration insulation. The front of the case has various small gaps and really doesn't provide much sound insulation at all for a hard drive(s).

Summary: Built a budget build for a friend using this case, great purchase for the price. Quality: Flimsy, frustrating, and poor wire management. The steel was pretty thin but again, its steel so its not too bad. The front bays and PCI slots required the removal of punch out covers, a little inconvenience but highlights the build quality.
Summary: I have been waiting to finally get this case especially after reading some of the lesser opinions. I just finished rebuilding my second system using this case, and I am using that system to write this review with, and I have found it quite easy to install parts, especially after getting the motherboard to just slip right in. I was worried that the case might be too small after I realized what it's design was for but not really. I think it will serve my purposes nicely.
Summary: This case was pretty good. It has a nice design and mostly everything fit well. The motherboard was sort of a tight squeeze. The screws are little too close together, even though the case is for a micro-atx motherboard. I had to exert quite a bit of force in order to hold the motherboard in place while I screwed it in; the motherboard was an micro-atx. Other than the slight tight fit, the case is excellent. The tool-free hardware snap-ins were easy to use.
