Summary: Case features two front mounted USB 3.0 inputs, which is one of the reasons I chose this model. One of the inputs failed after about 2 months of use, corrupting any data passed through it. The other one seems ok, but I'm having trust issues!
Summary: Switches and status LEDs should always be on the front panel. Front panel cables (audio and USB) should never be above front panel device user slots.
Pros: Plenty of internal space for clean cable layout.
Cons: The power control panel is on top of the case along with reset switch, hard-drive activity LED and power LED. It is in a good position if the case was on the floor but the floor is a bad choice with the power supply air intake being on the bottom of the case which is why I liked this case. Along ...
Summary: I don't know if it is because it is an older case but with a ASRock Z87 Extreme 3 ATX MOBO installed two of the risers on the right side of the mobo are about an inch out from the board.
Pros: Spacious, has a lot of room for larger GPUs, good airflow, decent room for cable management, and space for a good number of fans of varying size.
Cons: ONE dust filter that is quite a pain to clean, have to take off both side panels and the top part which has the power button to take off the front panel, and my house is very dusty so the one filter is a near death sentence for my computer. With a non-modular PSU cable management can be a bit of ...
Pros: Just received my tower. When I opened the box, the front panel where the power button and USB ports reside, was broken. The tabs that hold it in place on the top of the tower were all broken. I'm not sure if the panel was damaged during or before shipping. Other than that the tower is great. I'm ...
Cons: Tabs that keep front panel in place are broken. Using tape to keep the panel in place
Summary: Unless you plan on using all the extra drive bays on this, do yourself a favor and get the HAF 912 instead. It's cheaper, more compact but still has plenty of space for all your parts, fans, etc., has a much better design, and is cheaper to boot.
Pros: This is a well-built case and is easy to work with. Good air ventilation, plenty of space for fans and parts.
Cons: The top of this case is attached with plastic pieces which break off. I receive my case with this part detached because 2 of the pieces were broken. To cooler master's credit, they sent out a new top piece free of charge, however it arrived with 1 of the pieces broken and a 2nd piece broke on me ...
Summary: Overall good upgrade from my last CM case, but not enough of an improvement from the last CM case I bought years ago. I expected them to come much farther with their case design with all their success in popularity in recent years.
Pros: CM always has good drive bays and decent air flow.
Cons: Small motherboard access hole in motherboard tray. This is my second CM case and I expected with my buying one of their new models this issue would be resolved by now. The access hole is just too small and out of place on most high end motherboards, if you buy a bargain board you are more likely ...
Summary: The SSD that was mounted in the lower bay did have enough room, but I had 4 other 3.5 hard drives which is too many cables in that tiny space. If you have lots of drives, pick another case, otherwise this would probably be great.
Pros: If you have very few drives, the thing is very spacious, quiet, and has good air flow.
Cons: I was going to fill this puppy up with hard drives to use as a media server. However, if you fill up all of those hard drive slots down at the bottom, you sure better have right angle power and sata connectors or there will be no way you can fit everything without seriously smashing the cables in...
