5 out of 5 eggsLove this Case

Pros: -Freaking HUGE!

-Able to fit everything my Mobo can have and more.

-Great design for wire management.

-Fan controller on case

Cons: -very heavy (maybe a pro too)

-no window to show off build (very minor issue as I'm planning to buy a spare door to mod with a window)

Other Thoughts: This is a wonderful case, from the top 'roll'-bars down. The removable hinged doors are well designed, for ease of access during a build/upgrade. The cable management system is designed well also, so no wires get in the way of air movement. The fan controller works very well and frees up unnecessary Mobo wire clutter. The only thing I can suggest is to plan your build around not having to lift the case too many times, this thing is heavy pushing around 85 lbs. after everything was installed.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat!!!

Pros: Everything -1 complaint...

Cons: The screws that come with this case are a joke... You would think for a 300 dollar case you could get better hardware... I've never seen such horrible mother board screws in my life... Corsiar at provides washers, screws that are not serrated on the back... This is a horrible horrible joke... I love the case but it only takes 9 screws to ruin the whole experience. Those screws if not careful and over tightended could easily damage a mother board...

Other Thoughts: VERY DISAPPOINTING COOLER MASTER... do a better job on the hardware screws you provide and be the product you claim to be. I'm very very very disappointed by this.

I gave this case 3 eggs although it's worth 5, but because the screws are so bad, so horrible that will be my rating. These screws are of low quality and not taking into account the components they are being attached to. I hope they do not cause any problems with my mother board. I should order some mother board mounting screws from corsair at least they are of good quality and does not make me worry about the damage they can cause because they are not serrated on the back side.

Customer dissapointed.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall awesomeness

Pros: It’s big, I mean huge. It can hold more drives than you could possible use. It can fit any length graphics card(s) and still have room left. It can hold up to ATX-XL boards; my EXT-ATX looks small in it.
Really easy to build with this case; bigger cases make for easier builds in my opinion, and this thing is huge.
It’s metal. I love metal cases. This is mostly aluminum / steel and some plastic. I think metal looks better. It’s stronger, it’s tougher, and I believe the metal helps with thermal dissipation a little. This thing will last a lifetime. I won’t ever have to buy another case.
It has a great CPU cutout for upgrading your CPU cooler without having to remove your motherboard. I’ve seen others, but this one I would actually feel comfortable using.
Good cooling fan support. Good water cooling support. I can confirm that the top case can fit a corsair H-110 280mm radiator and fans provided you mount it with the case sandwiched between the radiator and fans (fans outside the case, radiator inside) The top fan cover accommodates the fans outside the case without problem. I love that the bottom rails elevate the case off of the floor for better ventilation.
The doors are on hinges and easily remove. If you are like me and frequently are inside your case updating/upgrading/adding things to your computer, this just makes things easier. I really am not a fan of the “insert door tabs into case slot and slide forward” thing. I always seem to have a bulk of cables on one side that tends to flex the door or worse I can’t get it to close at all. If there is stress on the doors the tabs bend. The tabs get bent through other mechanisms and don’t work well. I also don’t like constantly using screws to secure the doors, then having to unscrew them again. With this case, the doors are on hinges and you just shut them until it latches. To open, just press down on the lever and they are open. Super easy and quick, no tools required and no busted knuckles.
Build quality is excellent overall. I really think it’s quite attractive. Nice touches like the power supply mounting from the outside. I was able to set cable routing with the power supply slid out of the case slightly and it made making those connections much easier with the PSU out of the way. Disk drive fans on a hinged case with the wires routed at the hinge for a nice clean connection. It has easy-peasy cable routing. It’s really nice. I have 5 drives and two large graphics cards and it’s nice and clean. There is plenty of room to route on the other side of the motherboard. Doors have plenty of clearance, so even if you muck it up a bit the door closes no problem.
Built in fan and led controller if you are in to that kind of thing. Lots of leads from the fan controller for extra fans, lots of led leads (overkill really). Leads are generally well labeled.

Cons: Nothing huge, but a few little things would make this really great case even better.
Documentation is really poor. If I was someone doing my first build I would probably be on the phone a lot with support. I’ve had this complaint with all cooler master cases (3 total). I mean seriously, a couple of hours for someone to type up a more thorough manual would cost almost nothing.
The map for mounting the motherboard screws for the Extended ATX motherboard is wrong. Small issue, but if you follow the map (stamped to the inside of the case where the motherboard goes) you screw in 3 more mounting screws than you actually need and it forms an extra column of screws.
They have the motherboard mounts too high (my opinion) in the case. If they would lower it just an inch it would allow a radiator and fans to be mounted at the top inside the case. As it is now, it overlaps the motherboard and it won’t fit, even if you made it fit, it is blocking ATX power, and CPU fan connections. Fortunately you can run fans on top of the case and radiator inside (case sandwiched between), but there isn’t room for a push-me pull-you set up with two sets of fans. The case is big enough that there is plenty of room to lower the motherboard mounts if they chose. For me, this was the biggest issue with the case, and it’s not a huge one, and certainly not one that would prevent me from recommending this case.
The case is big, so cable length can become an issue. I had a serious challenge getting enough length out of the 8 pin ATX power cable from the PSU (very bottom of the case) to the motherboard header (very top of the case). I also was sweating other cable length issues, but I had no other problems.
It’s heavy. It’s heavy empty. It’s really heavy once you finish your build. Not an issue for me, but if you were someone who went to a lot of LAN parties, you would want to invest in a nice furniture dolly, or mount some heavy duty casters, and maybe get a body-builder friend, or a forklift to help you move it. Seriously, you don’t want to have to move this thing if you don’t have to. Like other choices, it’s a tradeoff. You want a big, well-made metal case with room for umpteen drives, four GPUs, a huge power supply and lots of water cooling? Then it’s going to be heavy.
There are holes in the door for mounting up to two 120mm fans. It would have been much nicer if they had been threaded to accommodate fan screws. As it is, they are just holes. In fact, why didn’t the case come with them already installed like the drive bay underneath? Already wired in the same slick way they set up the drive fans, with a quick-disconnect at the hinge area? Oh well.
The hot swap bays are tight, and it’s difficult to remove them. Plugging in an SSD would be a challenge; they are set up for full size HDD. It’s still a nice feature, but it would have been slick if it was made just a little bit better.
The internal drive bays have tool-less mounts that are ok. I wouldn’t call them cheap as

Other Thoughts: , but considering the price of the case and the build quality of the rest of the case, they don’t quite measure up. Also in my case they applied the “cooler master” sticker on one of the lock buttons upside down.
When you open the front drive bay slide cover to get to your external drives it blocks the front case fan.
Other thoughts
You might think from the length of my cons that I don’t like this case. Nothing could be further from the truth; I’m just giving full disclosure. I love this case; in fact it’s the best case I’ve ever had. It’s almost perfect. I absolutely recommend it to anyone who would ask.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case Ever

Pros: This case has room for 13, 3.5" hard drives plus 3, 5.25" bays. Eleven of the drives are tool-less mountable or you have the option to add a screw on each side of the drives and 2 are slide in from the front. Be careful as some drives can bind as one reviewer broke his case. room for up to 11 fans, more if you get creative.
This is just a great case, buy it!

Cons: an extra inch above the motherboard would have been nice for thicker radiators or push fans and an extra inch in length for easy hose routing

Other Thoughts: I used every inch of this case with a 360 radiator on top, 13 hd's a dvd, usb panel, and a 140 rad mounted on the back of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsI love this case

Pros: Lots of Room
Easy to access everything
Built very nice.
Warranty Service was Great in my experience.
Keeps everything really cool.
Love the hard drive swaps and also all the hard drive slots. i Like how they give the option to remove hard drive slots for bigger radiator, i do not see my self getting another case for quite some time. Few cons that they should improve on.

Cons: Ok first one would be the oem fans that if you want to work with the fan controller you pretty much have to order from the manufacture and price for each fan is decent but shipping is crazy!!!

Now also i wish they would have some quick disconnects added to the fan wires so if your not using them you can disconnect them like close to the fan controller board in the back that way it looks a lot nicer in the back i have only 3 fans so far using there controller as i have not been able to purchase more yet but the amount of extra wires i have in the back really make it hard to put them in a place where it doesnt take much room.

Other Thoughts: I was having a issue after awhile with the i/o panel where if i inserted a usb it freeze my computer or if i walked just right by it and a piece of clothes touched it, it would freeze well i contacted them and they said the i/o panel needed replaced so they sent me off a new one which didnt have any instructions but it was quite easy to figure it out to replace it like 4 screws hold that in. This solved my problem. I didnt have to ship the old one back and they shipped the new one quite fast i had no problems and no delays in the whole process was quite pleased so i did not consider this a con because of everything went smooth unlike others they need to realize that not everything works perfect right off the bat there is some hiccups but if you find a company like this that backs their product you are golden and i dont know how you had any issues getting new pieces maybe the attitude you have towards the person you are speaking to maybe change that up.

5 out of 5 eggsFINALLY !

Pros: On the 3rd attempt, I received an undamaged case. I love this case and can't wait to buy the rest of my build and assemble it. This case is a thing of gargantuan beauty. It's the hot amazonion of computer cases. Enough room for a huge build, and a kitchen sink (if you remove some of the drive bays).

Cons: UPS, do NOT get this shipped UPS, took them 3 tries to get me one that wasn't damaged. The packaging from Cooler Master is subpar. They have a rectangular piece of styrofoam at the top, and at the bottom of the case, there is NO PROTECTION should any pressure be placed on the box at mid case. If the carrier is careless with this product, you will get a damaged case.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat eggcept

Pros: Massive case anything you want will be in here tones of leads for extra fans basically this is a Higher Being of a case. i love how everything just fits perfectly in and the hardware you get included with the case is more than you would ever neeed. tons of thumb screwes.

Cons: I found a way to work around it however not to my liking. The power button does not work had to use the reset button/cable to my motherboard to be able to turn my computer on. I feel its a big enough flaw to take away 2 eggs. one for the flaw and 1 for a person to have the knowledge that it would work off another button. thumb screws yes even after you take them off with a screwdriver and hand tight back are a bit hard to do if you have large fingers but otherwise mostly a preference than a con

5 out of 5 eggsCase looks amazing, UPS sucks.

Pros: The case is beautiful, and large enough for nearly any components you could ever need. I love the look of the case and have wanted it badly for a new build since the first time I saw it.

Cons: UPS shipping SUCKS !!! I received the first case with visible damage to the box front. I opened it to find the plastic trim that goes all the way around the side panel had a several inch chip out of it on the front by the fan intake. RMA was quick and easy, 2nd case arrived and it's damaged worse than the first one was, visible box damage, that same trim broken at the back of the case up and to the left of the power supply opening. Seriously UPS? You can't treat your customer's packages with respect? (<- Not a d*ck joke)

Other Thoughts: If you order this case, or possibly any others, use a carrier other than UPS, for the sake of your own sanity and to save yourself an RMA, or two. 3rd case is on the way after they get this one back, and NOT via UPS.

5 out of 5 eggsHEAVY!

Pros: Air flow is no concern with this case!! And neither is hdd space. I put a full atx in here and still have room for a liquid cooled system, hopefully in the near future!

Cons: No Window :( I just keep my side panel off for the meantime. Very Heavy, but sturdy!
