Summary: This case is great, its very big and sturdy and keeps everything very cool, however it is somewhat pricy and the lights on the fans have a shaky connection and won't always turn on which puts it down to 4 eggs for me.
Pros: Great airflow, lots of room, good amount of usb ports, looks good
Cons: Somewhat expensive, LED lights have a poor connection
Summary: Great case over all. I have no other problems that I have run into yet. No loud noises coming from the case due to the fans or anything. All the fans are pretty good, so far....
Pros: -Enough room for expansion -Plenty of fans for excellent air flow -Adjustable feet which helps in case of space issues & added stability -All painted interior for wonderful aesthetic appearance
Cons: -Cleaning the mesh filters is a bit hard if you don't find a good way to clean them -There is a LED light for power and HDD use that can be annoying at times because it can be too bright -shipping can be a hassle when the package shows up dented ( I didn't care too much about it so I just bent it...
Summary: This case weighs 28 pounds in its package. Yet CM felt the need to only install a little over and inch of styrofoam to protect this case in its box. It took me 3 tries to get one that was relatively undamaged. The first 2 were downright mangled from being dropped.
Pros: Nicely built, looks great, great cooling, easy to work with.
Cons: Very poorly packaged, plastic surfaces and especially fan/led controls feel cheap.
Summary: While I had that one issue it wasnt that big of a deal to pop out the other top and replace it with the new one. also had no issues dealing with CM Customer Support.
Pros: Nice looking, Lots of room, plenty of connections. Fans are quiet unless turned up to max which will obviously make it louders.
Cons: Shipped with a faulty IO panel, after ~5 button presses the LED controls went out. Contacted CM support and they sent a new top panel within a week. had to reattach all the wiring in the back but it wasnt too bad.
Summary: this case essentially deserves 5 eggs overall when you take everything into account - i just have my personal wants - this is easily one of, if not the, best case you can get for this price.
Pros: incredible case design, so much space, great for tucking away cables. 4 front mount usb + sata ==== awesome. innovative and effective mounting system for PCI is simple and quick. this case is spectacular for system configs who like to change their specs alot. a real pleasure to work with.
Cons: not a fan at all of the lower mount power supply - gets in the way of mobo wiring. hd cage mounts are somewhat flimsy but overall the design and concept is great. front mounted controls are a little flimsy and fan speed control could operate smoother.
Summary: it's a "mid tower" case, but it's big - beats my Antec 900 by a few inches in every dimension, no loss here though
Pros: Large Painted black inside and out Easy to remove/install drive bays, both 3.5 and 5.25 Nice bump-out in the back panel (behind mobo tray) for cable routing Able to control case fans from top control nob, nice touch Speaking of the case fans, the one in the door is huge, and is plugged in @ the f...
Cons: Only got 4 stars because it was missing 2/3 of the "accessories" bag - no motherboard standoffs or screws (except the two installed in the case by CM), no wheels, no extra cords. When I contacted them, Newegg offered a $10 credit, which I took, but put the blame on Cooler Master. Contacted Cooler...
Summary: I've always bought Antec but for the price and features I gave CM a shot. Probably will be the last one they get.
Pros: Silent and cool. Very nice looking and well built for the most part. Fan controller works well and fans are quiet even at highest setting. Again this is one quiet case! Perfect size for under the desk or on top. Got it for 100 bills after rebate. Front cutout and bracket for 3.5 card reader. At f...
Cons: To be honest I would have felt cheated for more than a hundred bucks. CPU cutout is useless, at least for my Z77 Sabertooth board so you will probably have to mount the CPU and cooler outside the case and hope you don't have to take it out anytime soon. I didn't have to but pity you if you do! I ...
