5 out of 5 eggsSuper Little Case!!

Pros: Compact size. Removable motherboard tray is a PLUS that really made cable management easier! Easy to understand users' guide. Ample room inside. GREAT cooling abilities. Sturdy construction, as everything fits solid upon completion of my build. QUIET! Easy to use USB, Audio, power/hdd/reset cable connectors. Nice slots for either 80mm or 120mm case fans. Front air mesh filter. Easy on/off front grill. Rear removeable slots are easy snap-in or pop-off if you need to add/remove expansion cards. With a $15 rebate (not on NewEgg) this case is a great buy for 15 bucks!

Cons: Nothing really. However, the supplied hardware screw pack is short on 2 motherboard stand-offs (6 supplied, I need 8 of these). Make sure you add two more before installing your motherboard (unless yours requires just 6). However, I'm not gonna take off an egg rating for this.

Other Thoughts: I completed this build with spare stuff I had, using an LG SATA 20X DVD DL Lightscribe drive/Sony E-IDE ATA 18X DVD DL drive/2 Seagate PATA 250GB HDD drives/4GB PC6400 memory/Ultra 500W V-Series black PSU/2 Cooler Master 120mm blue LED case fans.... AND the award winning Abit NF-M2 nView mATX motherboard (now discontinued) with an AMD Athlon AM2 Dual-Core 4800+ CPU.
I wanted to replace my (harder-to-use) Ultra Micro-Fly mATX case that just lost its appeal; very difficult to work with.
This Cooler Master Elite 340 case is much easier to build with. A little tight, but feasible; easier on the hands. Cable management was easy enough-just tied cables together with unused PSU cables and tucked these between the PSU and DVD drives. This case is sleek, clean looking; compact enough to fit in anywhere. Its black/silver decor matches my setup as well! Looks great with blue LED fans! I'm thinking of buying another one of these to build for friends, or family. A very good purchase indeed!

5 out of 5 eggsJust Put Some Sound-Mat In it

Pros: This Case Is Compact, Not a bunch of LED's or Fancy Du-Dads. But it still looks Good. Price is wonderfull... CHEEP !!!!!

Cons: Metal Is A Little Thin.. But I was Building this as a silent Computer for a friend, so i Just Ordered some Sound-Matt and Completly Dissasslembled it and put Sound-Matt on every inch inside it. On both side pannles, back, top, front,bottom. Sound-Matt really takes the tingy sound away from it. DEAD SILENT !!!

Other Thoughts: !! No fans !! I only had 1 HDD , 1 DVD burner, **fanless** PSU, Scythe mini ninji cpu cooler **fanless**, Athlon x2 1.9 ghz (45W) So its not ment to be a Gaming Rig, Just a web browsing, and Word precessor Computer. No big Video Card, Just the iGPU. I put the HDD in a 5-1/4 HDD tray above the dvd drive so i just removed the HDD cage and there was a BUNCH of extra room inside. With a little Modding this case can fill manny peoples needs, (SILENT, or GAMMING RIG).

5 out of 5 eggsworks great with my ubuntu GNU/linux Build

Pros: Simple design, excellent layout, not a stupid amount of drive bays therefore you can attach a front intake fan which will bring in filtered air. very clean looking in the front.

Cons: the front of the case vibrates and rattles because of the design which makes noise. this is because the front is not on tight and there are multiple pieces that vibrate and make noise. They only give you 6 instead off 8 mother board standoffs i had extra no big deal, but if you dont have extra and just use six your motherboard may have usb ports or other devices or areas which are not grounded and will cause your system to freeze from static electricity when you plug somthing in.

Other Thoughts: Still the best micro atx case on newegg

3 out of 5 eggsGood case, BUT!

Pros: Coolermaster Cases are well made and very good fit and finish

Cons: 3.5 Drive cage placement causes cable routing and access problems.

Other Thoughts: Do not get me wrong this is a quality case, but you will need to mount your hard drive on the bottom or front of the case. If you mount it in the cage it will be within a half inch of the CPU heatsink without the drives cables installed. Same goes for a floppy drive.

4 out of 5 eggsa good buy for good value

Pros: Good looking case, fits plenty.
Runs REALLY COOL. I can't feel any heat near my power supply or MB, even with out a case fan.
great intermediate to high performance case

Cons: front usb's and mic+sound ports don't work, not a problem though, because my motherboard has plenty of those. Not going to bother to rma it, either.

Other Thoughts: Buy it...

5 out of 5 eggsGood modder case

Pros: Great modders case, remove the 3.5 drive cage and stick a second 120mm fan in the front. Also Dremel out the metal in the fan holes in front of all the fans.
I'm sure that it would be a noisy case if you hard mounted a drive. Which is why I suspended mine at the bottom to catch the air from the bottom front 120 mm fan. Plenty of room for a full size video card like the 8800gts. Even with 2 x 120mm in the front, 1 on the heatsink and 1 in theback, it's hard to tell it's on.
The size is perfect for sitting in my tv stand hooked to a sony lcd tv.

Cons: The filter in the front behind the mesh grill is a PITA to remove and clean. Contemplating removing it permanently and just dusting my system every so often.

Other Thoughts: Q6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz
4gb / 8800gts / x-fi / pbk-vm

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: -Great looking case
-Buttons and ports on the side makes it look very clean
-Both side panels are removable, makes wiring and everything easier
-Entire front is mesh, with a washable dust filter
-Fits two 120mm fans
-Solid construction

Cons: -Case material is a little thin
-I don't like the huge air vents on the side... they're unnecessary since the entire front is mesh.
-The hard drives aren't mounted orthogonally... they're mounted as a floppy drive or card reader would be. This is fairly minor, but if you don't have right angled SATA and power cables for your hard drive and you have a heatsink with a fan directed toward the back of the case and not down toward the motherboard, the cables risk getting chopped up in the fan.

Other Thoughts: -The case doesn't come with any fans, but a 120mm fan can be mounted in both the front and the rear
-A Zalman CNPS9500AT fits very comfortably

2 out of 5 eggsLoud and annoying.

Pros: Small size, removable motherboard tray, filtered front intake.

Cons: Extremely thin steel contruction makes vibration noise a serious problem. Even the cheapest brand computers have much higher quality cases than this. Features do not make sense: the front of the case is mesh with a dust filter behind it, yet the side panel has intakes which are not filtered at all!

Other Thoughts: I tried to salvage this purchase with some modifications. I added self-stick vinyl tile to the inside of the case panels which helps reduce panel vibration significantly. However, the hard drive cage is made of extremely thin steel, which is attached to the thin front end of the case. There is not much more that can be done to make the case tolerable.

3 out of 5 eggsNoisy

Pros: Attractive, roomy, clean air flow, easy to assemble

Cons: Hard drive sing like a banshee! Why? I tried two different HD's that are quiet in other cases.
Have to remove MB to get hard drive out (heat sink blocks). Poor assy quality, even the name plate is on crooked.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for

4 out of 5 eggsSweet lil tower

Pros: Price. Styling. It can accomodate ANY size graphics card and still have room for a couple hard drives.

Cons: Panels are on the thinner side and front USB ports feel a bit delicate, but luckily should last if care is taken.

Other Thoughts: If small/mATX is what you're looking for and you wanna cram a big gfx card in a small case, then this is the case for you!
