5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The space, the sturdiness and gotta love the handle. This case has been carried around for almost 6 years with very few minor scratches, which are nothing compared to the punishment it has been through.

Cons: I dont have any

5 out of 5 eggsYou won't regret buying this case!

Pros: This case is absolutely gorgeous! The pics simply don't do it justice. Mine arrived totally free of defects despite the minimal packaging, so I'm happy about that. The thing is freakin' huge, and rather robust. The side panels are twice as thick as my previous case. I was afraid the side "mesh" would be flexible and wiry, but it's actually drilled metal, so it's quite stiff. The handle works great... my last case had a handle, and once you have one, there's no going back. The grip as a stiff rubber, but is flexible, so it very comfy to hold. The front cover is easy to remove, yet attaches firmly. Front bay covers are very sturdy plastic, again, twice as thick as my last case.

Cons: As most people have mentioned, the power/reset button covers are rather flimsy. You can't tell from the pics, but the buttons have a clear cover over them that rotates away from the actual button, and the hinge feels like it wouldn't take much to snap it off. The tool-free locking mechanism for the 5" drives is overly complex and not really useful. It works fine for large drives that fit tightly (such as a DVD drive), but for smaller/shorter pieces like the Sunbeam fan controller or the Startech 2-fan HDD cooler, the tool-free lock simply doesn't work. Things like this must be bolted in on both sides, and the lock mechanism doesn't accommodate that well. It can still be done, but these would actually be simpler if they had normal screw-in slots. The case only comes with an intake fan, no exhaust fan, but that's not really a big deal... lets you pick the fan you want. It may just be me, but the side panels are a pain to get back on. There must be a trick to it I haven't figured out.

Other Thoughts: The Cons are all *really minor* things. This case is AWESOME, and doesn't look like anything else on the market (that I can find, anyway). Highly, highly recommended! =D

4 out of 5 eggsCoolermaster Ammo 533

Pros: Sturdy, durable case with a strong carrying handle for easy transportation. Excellent case airflow with a built-in front fan, space for a rear case fan, and the wire mesh side provides excellent ventillation. The design is slick, and this case could easily be remodeled to fit your style. It has lots of space, room for most of your cables to keep them out of the way, and the no-tools tech that they use is really top-notch.

Cons: Though the mesh side is good for ventillation, it also means if you have heavy-duty fans, you'll hear them more clearly. The case is somewhat heavy, as well. The layout keeps the harddrive bay too far from the 5.25" drive bays: watch out if you're using PATA HD's and optical drives together. Also, why have two 3.5" external drive bays if only one is exposed??

Other Thoughts: If you want a tough, sturdy, and very durable case and don't mind a bit of noise, then this is definately the case for you. The tool-free design is constructed very well, and it has plenty of space for the ever-expanding gaming rig. Just be sure to keep an eye on the layout of your motherboard to make sure this case is right for it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Well thought out, well put together. Front Bezel and front drive covers come off easily. Also snap back on easily and seem pretty secure. Good clearance underneath. The handle is way handier than you would have thought. I'm always moving my pc's back and forth and the handle is also very helpful when you are laying the box down to assemble.

Cons: The expansion bay retainers are adequate, no more no less. No UPC on the box to send in rebate. Ended up not getting the rebate.

Other Thoughts: I bought this with a rebate, probably wouldn't have bought it with out the rebate I didn't get. Still, it's a nice case for $70, and I have no regrets. The appearance isn't a factor for me. It's not elegant, but it's not boring either. I was using it for testing various used parts I've collected, so I built the equivalent of four computers in it this weekend. Very easy to work with.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a little different but nice case

Pros: It's a coolermaster steel case thaat's made to look like something out of WWII. I bought the case on sale to build a computer for a friend but I'm keeping the case.
It's roomy, runs cool and makes for a neat installation. I love the handle.

Cons: The power/reset switches could be a bit stronger and the external usb ports are located in a place that is not convienient.

Other Thoughts: I love the different look of the case and will keep it and give my friend another.

5 out of 5 eggsWaited a long time... but wait was worth it.

Pros: I waited awhile while newegg had these out of stock because of their super Cooler Master Ammo deal @ the beginning of the year. It was worth the wait for sure. There was no other case that integrated the handle on top as eloquently as this case. I went from a cooler master wavemaster, to this baby, and it was significantly bigger, but my idle temps on my CPU went down around 5 deg C, and load temps about 10 deg C! The handle makes moving the case so much easier, and makes this mid-atx tower the ideal for LAN parties. Plenty of room for a ton of components, and the front is very easy to remove and clean. The Blue LED is very discreet, it wasn't as show-glow as i thought. Ppl have been saying the screwless clips are unsturdy, but the one i got says otherwise. They don't completely hold it in like a screw would, but it's enoguh to hold it in place during trips in your car. (even cards wiggle with screws in there... it's just the nature of the motherboard slots)

Cons: HEAVY! much heavier than expected, however the handle still makes it easier to move around, than a normal case about 10lbs heavier. Also, it doesn't come with 2 120mm fans. I needed to buy a separate 120mm exhaust fan to take full advantage of this case's capabilities. The black panels fingerprint easily.

Other Thoughts: I haven't been this stoked about a case in a LONG time. it looks great, cools very well, great portability, and the quality that cooler master put into this is awesome. All this for a price under 80 bucks? Are you kidding me? If you are so inclined that you need screws, just look on newegg for some thumb screws, that should fit into the outer case panels and the add-on card securers. If you like bringing your rig to a LAN, but don't wanna dumb down your rig by buying microATX motherboards and cases, this is a great option. I am not regretting it one bit.

4 out of 5 eggssuitcase computer

Pros: had everything i needed fire wire, hd f audio. handle is wonderful. top buttons are great! Has front air filter nice touch. well constructed feels heavy duty. Possible heirloom. Love the screwless drive bay retention system.

Cons: no rear fan bought one, no big deal to install. can hear fans through side mesh vents (rather had a window maybe future mod!). No power supply.

Other Thoughts: You can't really go wrong on this especialy if you Lan party or simply want to move it occationaly. Well built heavy duty case. I love it. (still like the antec 900 a little more because of the cooling)
