Summary: This tower is awesome and easy to assemble. Performance is top notch. Very quiet and easy to use the fan controls on top of the tower. The fans in front do glow as the picture shows which I already expected but sometimes when you buy things you get let down. Zero let downs with this tower. Arrived early in the mail as well.
Summary: I've read a lot of reviews on this case before purchasing and just wanted to address a couple things. The "dent" in the side panel that some people have reported is actually a designed indentation that goes right in-front of the fans. Also the side panel itself is very easy to put back on, but if you don't have it properly hooked in at all 6 spots the bottom or top corners will appear lifted as some people have said.
Pros: Huge case with tons of room, has an SSD cage located at the bottom right beside the PSU (Choice this spot to install my SSD with my OS on it, since their was a filter trap directly below it). Fans are very quiet and the LED glow isnt distracting or overly bright in a dark room. The extremely sturdy carrying handle is a huge plus because this case can get quite heavy when it's loaded up, especially with a larger GPU (I'd recommend removing a large GPU if you plan on mo...
Cons: The screws that are right against the front of the case that are holding in the front 2 fan bays were so stripped that I wasn't able to remove them to re-arrange the fan bays direction (Wanted to make them front facing). Wasn't worth RMA'ing and being without the case for another week or two since it was back ordered in the first place.
Summary: I LOVE this case, its the sexiest case I have ever owned. Tones of space for fans, HDD's and GPU's. Excellent wire management . And the handle to carry it the bomb. It is quite heavey when full!
Pros: Looks Awesome, Tons of room, Easy to work with
Summary: I read the nay-sayers and for me this case is fantastic. My latest gaming machine is done, runs great and the case fans are quiet even at the highest settings. Won't bore you with stats, but this case is everything Cooler Master claims it to be. I would recommend to all you gamers that are building you latest rig, this is the case for you. Also check the Cooler Master site, they "DO" have a transparent side panel for the case.
Summary: This case was perfect. Nice setup for cable management. I absolutely love the hard drive brackets and the ease to put a slot loading disc drive/etc. in the front. the dust collectors work nice to keep the dust out of the machine. Good airflow. On the very bottom there is a little secret drawer you can put your phone/wallet/keys etc. in if you do LAN parties or if you just want to hide things in there. 5 stars!
Summary: I got this case because I bought a different full tower and it came broken so I just went for the best. Pros: - The looks are incredible. This looks mean and menacing right out of the box - Roomy - REALLY quiet fans (have the on full speed and still barely hear them) - The 90 degree switchable HDD bays are awesome - The 2 top mounted USB 3.0s hooks directly to the mother board so the external 3.0s on the motherboard arent taken up - Top mounted power, reset, fan, light...
Summary: Cable routing? The best! Case size? The best! Ease of install? The best! I have been building pcs for almost 30 years (yeah, when DOS was still around!) and this is far and away the best case I have ever purchased. The ability to move around the hard drives, configure the fans and filters, add up to 12 hard drives...it all makes this case the penultimate purchase for a gaming enthusiast. It is cool, and almost silent even with 8 fans.
