Pros: I'm not a cooler master fanboy, I usually use thermaltakes in my builds. I was intriqued by the design of this case, however, and thought I would give it a try and it didn't disappoint. Case is STURDY. Double riveted at all joints, so even with the sides and top off it's rock solid. This case seems custom made for my kraken x60 280mm radiator mounted right in the front with no modding necessary. Plenty of room for push-pull fan configuration on the radiator and the mo...
Pros: When I first saw this case,.. I was immediately intrigued -- Towers, let's face it.. are SO common and old-hat now. That a Tower/Desktop hybrid is interesting.
Cons: Cons.. The ONLY con I found with the case was with the hot swap covers. They are a bit fragile. With a lot of "hot swapping" of HD's,.. these will break unless you are VERY careful with them. Other than that.. it's so worth the $99.
Summary: 1) Only two 3.5 HDD drives. This isn't an issue for me, but in most server builds (at least at present) people use HDDs more than SSDs simply because of cost. I can see that some people might not want this case for that reason. But it is built for the future with plenty of space for SSDs for very fast RAID configurations.
