5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lots of room inside make cable management a breeze for once. Nice aluminum finish. Big GPUs will fit into this no problem .

Cons: Dust magnet, only came with 2 fans when it has room for 9

Other Thoughts: Mine came with a broken door hinge but coolermaster sent me a new set of hinges for free through their online tech support. Kudos to CM and Newegg

1 out of 5 eggsNO BTX!!

Pros: This case is awesome if you have ATX motherboard... just awesome.

Cons: If bought this case because NewEgg's product tour showed that this product comes with a BTX conversion kit and supports BTX motherboards... which is not true.

This product did not have a BTX conversion kit, nor did the case support conversion to support a BTX motherboard. The product detail information displayed on this page is not accurate.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is the best case I have ever handled. So where to begin on the pros... For starters, mounting your DVD/CD/floppy drives is as painless as can be. Simply open up the front of the case, open these small hinges on either side of the case, pop off a panel, slide your drive in and lock it in place.
Motherboard access is just as easy. The whole mounting tray slides in and out easily. The mounting screws for the mobo are stable, and leave the motherboard solidly attached to the computer.
Air flow is about as good as you're gonna get short of making a case with industrial fans for side panels. The side panel mounting brackets make mounting your four 120mm fans a breeze - you pop them into the mounting squares, which pop into the mounting bracket. Of course, if you want to screw your fans in, you can, but what would be the point when it's painless to use their mounting squares. Not to mention the fine mesh covering the squares provides some dust protection. Smaller fans can be...

Cons: (continued from pros section) mounted traditionally, of course, though I would suggest using four 120mm fans. If you do use four fans for the side panel, don't forget to buy power cables for at least two of 'em.
HDD mounting is about as painless as it can get - the front fan on the case blows air directly onto the hdds, and the compartment that the hdds rests in slides out of the front of the case. This means you mount your hard drives in their little box before sliding them back in, no awkward contortions of your body required.
This is an incredibly roomy case. It should be able to fit just about any component... though I can't guarantee that your components will fit on your motherboard. Namely, the Radeon HD4870 series of GPUs is about the biggest thing I've seen, and makes space on my motherboard a premium, but that's for another review.
CONS:
The side panels for the case are a little tricky to get back on, but nothing too bad.

Other Thoughts: Apparently the verb describing using a screwdriver on a screw is an inappropriate word on this website, hence forcing me to use the words "mounted traditionally".

2 out of 5 eggsOverpriced and poorly constructed

Pros: Side air fans make it very cool inside. Front USB/Firewire/Headphone ports are convenient. Slide out motherboard feature is nice for assembling the PC.

Cons: Very expensive. Metal edges inside will cut your hands if you aren't careful. The panels are poor made and difficult to slide on and off. The hard drive rack is difficult to get out of the case.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend. Get a thermaltake instead.

5 out of 5 eggsThere needs to be a better word for Rugged

Pros: This case is tough, and I mean tough in the best way ever. Its taken a beating, dropped stuff on top, spilled drinks on it, whenever I turn my chair it plastic parts rub on it and I can hear scraping, but not a single dent and scratch on it.

Everytime I think there is a scratch, I wipe it with my finger and it just a piece of hair, or dust.

Front door, can be made to open either direction, everything fits in there perfectly, all the screws go in nicely not cross-threading or lack of threading.

LEDs are bright, but I like that. Filters to grab the dust does their job as they should, but wont completely stop it.

ATX and BTX capable, easy switching, Motherboard tray pulls out, Cover fits just right. Hard drives are shock protected. Front panel mic and headset are HD-Azalia compatible, (i.e. the device will tell you when a headphone or mic is connected)

Plenty of places to connect extra fans.

Cons: Not much of a con, but its something I'd like people to be aware of, this is the same in all the ATX Full Tower Cases. Make sure whatever cables you use inside are going to be long enough. Sometimes connecting the powersupply, to a PCI-X video card that is at the bottom of the motherboard you'll have a problem reaching.

Other Thoughts: This is heavy, and I'm not putting it in the cons, because heavy means stable, wont get knocked off easily, I remember my share of Mid-Size towers, that tipped over as soon as my cat jumped on top of it. (poor cat always falling, and never learning). And I do mean heavy, make sure you put your legs into it when lifting, even when empty.
As I mentioned above, it might seem like there is a filter on it, but its not real actual filters, they help block most of the dust but not all. You can apply your own.

This bad boy lasted through three motherboards and four upgrades.

When packing this thing for the move I'm over protective.. cause this is one thing that will last me until there is newer spec. than ATX.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful But Not Perfect

Pros: Absolutely beautiful brushed aluminum sheet metal construction. Extremely flexiable air intake, vents (bottom & top) and cooling options. Tools-free 5.25" drive bay mounts, side doors locks, and mother board tray removal locks. Extended ATX, ATX, BTX, or micro ATX installation options. Mine included all the mentioned BTX conversion kit and the Raptor X drive mount kit for the top vent... I paid $1XX.XX from another E-retailer. The intake fan w/blue LED lights and outlet fan are exceptionally good and quiet. So much room 4 upgrades and build whatever your heart could desires for years to come. Special side fan bracket is for support for up to 4 intake fans. Cable management is such a pleasure to work with in this case especially if you apply some self-adhesive plastic cable tie-down anchors. Got Nvidia or ATI video card that's 12" long, no problems with this big & beautiful Cooler Master and still have rooms for your SATA II HDD cables. She is so beautiful but she not perfect. Read on.

Cons: Front feet bezels are plastic. Front USB 2.0, Firewire, Mic, and head phone interface cover is plastic. Rear-top air vent is plastic. Be prepare for Spring cleaning every 3-4 months as the dust-bunnies will be in the millions due to zero pre-filter on both side doors, bottom intake, and top vent. I don't mind this regular chord since I have waited 4-yrs to buy this beauty. Side doors are not snuggled and produce vibrational noise during normal operation... but they can be adjusted to remedy the noise. Fan noise...such as the CPU fan, exhaust fan, front intake fan, my Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2's fan, and optical disc drives & 2 HDDs can all be heard. I can not fault the design engineers for this as it was designed w/superior air-flow for enthusiasts in mind. Moreover, I have chosen all the top-ended components below 20dBA in noise and premium sound-absorption materials to remedy the noise. Lastly, the HD audio cables are too short for most mother board. ie. Asus P5E3 Premium WiFi

Other Thoughts: Look everyone, a PSU CAN NOT be installed on the bottom of this case as everyone has misread/misinterpreted the spec. What Cooler Master stated is that a PSU can be install UPSIDE down or RIGHTSIDE up w/out affecting performance of the PSU's air intake. This case will handle most tower heat-sink w/fan(s) of up to 120mm when the special side fan bracket mount is remove. The fair trade off is a quieter PC during those hours of Blu-ray movie nights and some "Cryis" action. One needs to use a filter or cover up the bottom air vent if one has at least one high ended Nvidia or ATI video card as the video card's fan will introduce alot of foregin particulates and dust from the carpeted floors through this vent.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Looks amazing; Humongous; Great airflow; Power button/USB ports are at the TOP of the case, which, for some reason, is difficult to come by nowadays with most cases. The two fans that come with it are surprisingly powerful/quiet, and the number of fans you can actually add-on are practically endless. There are vents EVERYWHERE (bad for noise, good for airflow); Removable motherboard tray; Wheels come in very handy; Instructions are sufficient, I guess. Clean look; Built like a tank; The tool-free design is convenient and virtually idiot-proof; 4 USB ports, which is probably more than you'll need at one time.

Cons: The connectors for the power/reset/audio are terrible. There were exposed wires for the audio, while everything else was sleeved. The power button LED has a 3-pin connector when it should be the standard 2-pin. I had to modify this connector to make it work. The customer service was sub-par when I contacted them about this. Luckily, they gave me permission to do this mod without losing my warranty. It's heavy; It's hard to fit under most desks. THERE IS NO BTX FORM FACTOR. The BTX-brackets/BTX-duct they show in the pictures section here on Newegg aren't there. You can't mess with the back at all. It says you can place the PSU bracket on the bottom or at the top. DON'T BELIEVE IT. It's expensive, obviously. The top panel, once removed, is difficult to put back on. No dust filters on the vented drive bay covers, which makes NO sense. You'll struggle with the side-panels for awhile until you get used to them.

Other Thoughts: Despite a few problems I encountered, and some obvious design flaws, such as the exclusion of dust filters for a design that really needs them, this is still a solid case. You'll pay an arm and a leg for it, but it will be worth it, and the quality of the case is excellent, so that investment will be worth it down the line, because you won't need to buy another case ever again.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case... if on sale

Pros: This case is huge! You know those funny gigs were a bunch of clowns climb out of a car? Oh, yea. It’s the same with this case only it isn’t surprising. So listen. If you want a large case, one that you can really feel roomy in, this is it. Period.

And talk about air circulation. Good grief. It's like a hurricane in there. Well, maybe not a hurricane, but certainly a strong, summer storm.

Cons: It’s huge! Be prepared to be astonished and to have people double take when they look at your system. Some might even say that you’re trying to compensate for other lesser components (Ahem). Look at your room. Calculate. Think. Will it fit under your desk? Will it fit through your front door? Are you strong enough to lift it?

It’s also kind of sharp. It’s hard to explain how so, but there so much aluminum and corners and protrusions and all other manner of metal love, one must be cautious. No, seriously. Another reviewer said it was like a bundle of swords, or something. True. Beware. Operate with Kevlar gloves and a vest.

Alright, forget the gloves, but hemophiliacs should be weary.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: Great case. Looks a little cheesy. Plenty of room. Reliable. Ventilated beyond all comprehension.

Don’t spend the full price. Wait for a deal. Then snag it.

5 out of 5 eggsNearly perfect.

Pros: REMOVABLE MOBO TRAY!! Lots of places for fans. Lots of room for my 790i Thermaltake TRUE Black 120 2x9800GX2... Tool-less drive bays are good for most devices...

Cons: I wish it had two fans in the back, Ill probably just go to water cooling when I need to get more serious about over clocking.

Other Thoughts: Use a 120mm 5.25" bayfan in the front to pull in more air. That leaves 3 ports open at the top for your disc drive, fan control and one more of your choice... enjoy. Also, check out the TWELVE HUNDRED when considering cases.

4 out of 5 eggsAbout as BTX as a BMX bike.....

Pros: Excellent case, has more fans than a rock star, the size of a refrigerator, has wheels so you can roll the fortress around, removable motherboard tray so I can more easily mess with things I probably shouldn't, break them, and easily put it back, easily removable sides so I can mess with more things more easily since there weren't enough to screw up on the motherboard tray. Attractive look and wide enough so you can set your bottle of wine in an ice bucket and a rose for the tech ladies, pretty sturdy construction to prevent damage after the wine is gone, Nice bottom opening for air intake, etc. etc. Everything was perfect until....

Cons: I discovered these newegg pictures were inaccurate when I ordered this. No btx fan adapter, no btx compatible motherboard tray, no srm. The crossflow fan adapters where nice, so I ordered the fan for them before I realized I had entered the 35th gate of Hades. The picture shows those little black thingamajiggywig things to the right of the rear fan and the right of the slots like the back of the case has sections which are movable. They aren't. Everything is one piece. The manufacturer told me they stopped making that and started making cases designed to destroy your soul and will to live if you own a btx board, plan to get one, or just wanna be prepared in case you want one. If you are buying this for ATX/BTX compatibility, let your soul be warned. I now have the crossflow fan to keep me cool next to the 36th gate. (Yes, Hades has electricity).

Other Thoughts: RMA to newegg after I took out a 45-year loan for the return shipping, and they of course honored me. So, thanks newegg. However, please change the graphic images to prevent the possible damnation of another loyal customer. Will be getting the nvidia version, and praying it is what it is supposed to be. *repents*
