5 out of 5 eggsGreat small case

Pros: Easy to put together, very nice quality especially for the price. It went together with zero problems and was part of the fastest build/installation I've ever done. Just a couple of hours from opening the first box to completing the windows installation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For the price this case was awesome. Very easy to put together.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: Awesome case for a mid-power gaming rig. The case can accommodate 4, 120mm fans and graphics cards up to 12" long. Pretty sturdy once it is all together. SO MUCH AIRFLOW!

Cons: No rubber feet on the bottom. The fan grills are too close to the fans and this causes my fans to make a whining noise at most speeds. (I'm using Cooler Master Sickle Blade fans) The tooless aspect of the case is weird and it doesn't allow for my fan controller to be securely attached to the case. (Sunbeam PL-RS-3)

Other Thoughts: The fan noise was fixed by cutting out the original grates for all the fans sucking in air and replacing them with the round grates that you find on power supplies.

5 out of 5 eggsMy new server case

Pros: Installed the ASRock A55M-HVS motherboard which houses a A8-3870K APU with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooling fan. Case is just big enough for this setup. Copper tubes just do touch case side panel, but there is no pressure on it one way or the other. With this cooling fan, I could not mount any side fans.

Cons: Skimpy on HDD storage, but you do get great cooling.

Other Thoughts: I used a BYTECC bracket to mount my SSD drive in the bottom of this case, where the lower HDD bracket is. Installed two HDD above, one is taking up one of the external 3.5" drive bays. With this setup, I needed to put the fan on the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo in a 'Pull' configuration to allow plenty of room for cabling. You could have a push/pull or push only if you wanted, you'd just have to bend and tie your cables from the hard drives mounted in the upper bays.

I installed one of the Cooler Master fans from the 4 pack that is offered here, those fans are the exact model of fan that is already included in the rear of this case.

Small case, thin sheet metal=a little audible fan noise. But not bad at all.

I kind of liked the elite 343 better, but newegg doesn't sell it, and this is the ONLY mini tower case cooler master offers that allows the use of a 120mm rear fan, most all others use the ~90mm or smaller fan.

This is housing my WHS 2011 server, and it stays cool.

3 out of 5 eggsAcceptable

Pros: Case layout is good, it's a good utilitarian mATX case with clean no frills styling. And options for more than adequate cooling and cable routing. As budget cases go it's OK

Cons: Case is far too thin in construction, I have used lower end Coller Master cases in the past and considered the lower end a good buy, but reinforcement folds in the stamping is lacking and the side panels bend and dent far to easily, if you are careful, don't hesitate to use one of these but for the money it could be a bit tougher. Just be careful of the panels when you have it apart, they bend very easy where most in the same weight class would not. Worth the excelent cooling however.

4 out of 5 eggsNice small case

Pros: Just the right size for a micro atx board, no wasted space. Quiet 120mm case fan

Cons: 3.5" bays are not screwless. The holes did not line up with device and while reaching into case to align device with bay my wrist and fingers came out with cuts

Other Thoughts: I like Cooler Master cases and its the first time for this one. I will use this one again if I need a small case. Whatever cut me was so sharp I did not fell the cuts, just saw the blood!

5 out of 5 eggsGood, solid product

Pros: Small, sturdy, uses thumbscrews

Cons: Couldn't figure out tooless system so I'm just using the screws the old fashioned way for HDD bays, but I didn't dock an egg because of the price range of the product.

Other Thoughts: Nice, solid little mATX case. Good product for the price range!

4 out of 5 eggsdecent m-atx case

Pros: m-atx with room for a cm hyper 212 evo cpu cooler
room for huge gpu
2x120mm fan mounts 1-front, 1-rear, side panel mounts for 2 more if needed (1 if you use a large cpu cooler)
bottom mount for hard drive is handy

no obnoxious led fans or windows or flashy paint job, just plain unobtrusive low key case (perfect in the asthetic department...)

Cons: labeled but not included front panel e-sata and firewire.
should have done the hanging hd mount sideways, would make
hd install so much easier, same goes for the bottom hd mount.
the power led is beyond obnoxious bright, add a resistor or nail polish etc to dim it, really bad in a bedroom if you let it sleep (f1a75-m pro blinks the power led while in sleep mode)

Other Thoughts: cm dropped the ball with this one...
with room for any current gpu and oversize cpu coolers
this case really is the only option for a m-atx gaming machine...
(hyper 212 evo 1-2mm to spare)

If any case manufacturer reads this review here are the changes
to make a perfect m-atx case, start with CM elite 341

1: rotate the hanging hd mount below the 3.5" external bays 90 degrees

2: rotate the bottom hd mount 90 degrees

3: add a resistor to power led or use one half as bright

4: include the e-sata and firewire jacks or remove them from the front panel
add 2 usb 3.0 jacks with internal 20pin plug in addition to the 2 usb 2.0 jacks

5: add 4 beefy screw lugs to top for an optional LAN party handle
