Summary: I bought this case because most friends of mine owned the same model. I would have like to seen a new case at this price point.
Pros: It can easily fit most aftermarket cpu coolers. Cover for the power button to help keep my 5 year old nephew from powering down the system. No easy to break off knobs. Honored the rebate.
Cons: The led button tends to stick to either the on or off position. I wish it came plugs for the fire wire and esata ports. The side panels come off like they are hinged but are actually hinged in any way. The thumb screws must be completely removed from the side panels to open the case rather than b...
Summary: When I opened the box some of the slats in the front were popped off. Also when I started to put everything together a lot of the thumbscrews were not aligned with holes. Would've been 5 stars if everything went together without prying panels to get the screws to start.
Pros: Lots of room, big, heavy duty, great cosmetics, can hide almost every cord
Summary: QA ============================= Upon receiving the case I was impressed it wasn't stolen as it was shipped without any external box; therefore my neighbors could see this giant case sitting on my front doorstep. Unpacking the case was easy. Taking the side panels off the case was a feat in itself.
Pros: Delivered on time Comes with CPU power extension cable Great fan positioning Easy to setup and manage cables
Cons: QA for drill holes for panels was sub-optimal. See "Other" GPU duct is incompatible with GTX 900 series GPU. See "Other" section.
I really respect Cooler Master, but I think I may have received a bad apple case.

Summary: Obviously I knew this before I bought it, but I really wish the Cooler Master icon on the front was in a different place, it annoys me a little. I wish that the front ports had a slider just like the power and reset buttons.
Pros: Strong, tons of space. Easy installation. I really like how the front bays works.
Cons: Many of my screw holes were unaligned. The paint comes off very easy. I could scratch it off with my fingernail. The filters were hitting my fans and had to cut the filters a little so they would not make noise.
Summary: con's sum up my experience with the tower, i didn't expect anything to wear out with almost no use but it did. if they don't feel like they need to replace what broke i think i'll avoid CM from now on
Pros: lots of room
Cons: cheap plastic casters broke from under the tower with minimal use cleaning some of the fans aren't easy front panel USB 2.0 port worn out with minimal use
Pros: The metal is machined in a nicer way than older CM cases: fewer crude edges for slicing your fingers open. Nice features like hotswap bays, when they actually work. Giant low RPM fans.
Cons: The SATA hotswap PCB was DOA. This is one of the main reasons I went with this case. I filed a parts request and after a month a new PCB showed up: a random single interface SATA PCB that looks like it was ripped from a cheap external HDD enclosure. It can't be used anywhere in my case and by all...
Pros: 1. Roomy. Needed it for my new 970 card. 2. Big, low RPM fans that keep it cool and quiet. 3. LEDs in case. Nice touch. 4. Wheels on the bottom! Nice!
Cons: 1. My major gripe: The plastic frame to the right of the power button on the front, top of the case broke during installation as I was trying to manhandle this massive case around. I'm shocked that a 180 dollar case is made of such flimsy materials. Watch yourself while fitting this case. 2. The ...
Summary: I really like this case but one issue had me rate it down and upset me. Pros: Well thought out design Nice drive cages with fan easy cable management the door over the power button is awesome, I have exotic cats and they think it is funny to press the power buttons on my computers with their paws...
