4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case - But

Pros: Love the Green see though window on the side. I can tell when it is getting dusty inside without having to take off the side panel to see if i need to do a little maintenance.
Very sturdy and light weight. Like the hardware pack as it was pretty complete with screws tye-wraps and adhesive placement cable routers.

Over all very good case in these areas.

Cons: The HDD cage was weird. I could not attach the SATA cables even with right angle connectors and get the side cover on. If you turn the HDD's around facing the back panel then they fit just fine with right angle connections.
Was the cage put in backwards or was it designed like that. Still i don't like having to take Both covers off to check a cable or two for a loose HDD connection.

Other Thoughts: Cool Master should build a unit and then decide if the case and everything is installed like it should have been - i still wonder about that cage????

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Fantastic case at a great price, you can turn the LED off, plexi-side makes it fun to look inside, nice and functional front face with power, reset, LED toggle, and a built-in input are attractive and useful. Front mesh has foam behind, this can be removed and vacuumed, that's a big plus for me as it keeps out more dust and can be cleaned, comes with two fans and has room for 2 more

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: no support for USB 3.0 but that's not a con. Loved this case and loved the price.

5 out of 5 eggsClassy Build

Pros: This case is Very Nice Looking sporting a Black over all color with Silver Trim accenting it. The Side Window is very nice also with a protective cover over it. Well Built and sturdy. Comes with extras like a 2.5" drive bar adapter kit, a floppy drive adapter kit, and all needed hardware to mount HHD's, DVD/CD drives, and Tye downs for wires - very complete hardware kit.

Cons: I must say the design of the Hard Drive Cage is either backwards or is just seriously flawed IMHO. You cannot get the HDD's connections to point out toward the front cover with the window. They stick out so far you can't even use RAC's (Right Angle Connectors) and then get the door back on. The thing is you need to have the HDD's installed with all connections pointing toward the far side panel and then the connections are easily made from that side. Case might be designed this way, all though i do not like HAVING to take the other panel off just to hook up HDD's or remove them.

(Note: i did not even try to use Straight Connectors all though it looks to be enough space that using them is not going to be a problem. You will have to make sure the Far Side Panel goes on without any wire obstruction.)

Other Thoughts: Beyond the HDD's being a Minor problem the case is Very Good with 2 fans (front and rear. I did order 1 (one) 140mm Fan for the Top Exhaust and 1 (one) for the side giving this case serious air flow. The back fan should be an exhaust fan when adding another intake fan on the side panel window.
Other than the one issue a Great Case.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: Lots of air flow, window, movable i.o bar, came with a tray for SSD drives, switch for the light on the front fan. Got on sale when it first came out.

Cons: Can't use a video card longer than 10.5 inches,or a cpu cooler taller than 6 inches. Drive cages show in the window.

Other Thoughts: I painted the drive cages black to make it fit in with rest of the case. My Gigabyte 890 board just fit. I plan on putting a fan in the top to make sure that my AMD X4 965 stays cool. I have used 10 of the Centurion5, so had to try this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

Pros: It was on sale for a super good price, so good in fact I did not even need a case but bought it anyway for an old gaming system that just does not do much anymore. It comes with a drive adapter very nice 140mm front case fan and a 3.5 inch bay adapter as well

Cons: None at the price I paid but at full price I would not give it 5 eggs

Other Thoughts: Should have bought 2

1 out of 5 eggsMEH...

Pros: GREAT CIRCULATION & EASY "Snap in" for everything.

Cons: Aside from it being too small for the MB i ordered, I've had issues with the power control panel in front, I tried putting in my older system and it will not start. It WILL start in another case.

Other Thoughts: Apparently, quality isn't controlled anymore...

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Lots of fan cutouts and options. Clearly designated motherboard riser holes. Button to turn off annoying blue LEDs on the front. Tool-less drive installation. Elementary cable management.
Good airflow.

The silver vertical pieces on the front are aluminum, not plastic like I assumed from the picture!

Overall, seems like a well-thought out case. It includes drive bay adapters, lots of screws and even zip-ties.

Cons: The included front panel fan is a bit loud for my tastes at max speed.

The case steel is thin enough that there's some significant flex around the perforated fan openings, but what do you expect for this price? The case is otherwise perfectly sturdy.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if Newegg listed the specs for the fans included in cases - I never know if they'll be quiet enough for my tastes.

In the case I got, according to the manual, the front panel fan is 140x25mm, 1200 RPM, up to 19 DBA. Back panel fan is 120mm up to 1200 RPM, 17 DBA.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case for the money

Pros: Attractive, quality construction, bottom mounted PS, versatile fan options, screw-less drive mounts.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Have built 3 new systems in the past 2 months using Cooler Master cases. Used the Elite 430, a CM 690 and this case. For the money this is the best bang for your buck. The Elite series are just too light weight and fragile. The Centurion line has all the features of the CM 690 at a lower price point. And the aluminium trim looks great on the front. Provides a very solid substantial feel to the front panel.
