5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: - Roomy
- Well built
- Air flow
- Lots of 5.25" externals
- Adapters
- Cable management
- Way more!

Cons: Honestly cannot think of any, which is rare...

Other Thoughts: This case is absolutely fantastic, and it looks like newegg FINALLY got the price right as it was over $250 for the longest time so I've been buying them elsewhere.

The case is large and has plenty of room for everything inside. I never felt cramped. I was able to TOP mount an H80i in a couple builds with this case. A very quick mod allowed me to put one of the two fans outside the case, under the top piece, so the whole thing wasn't dangling down covering the top of the mobo. Putting an H100i in some other builds looks super clean as the radiator isn't as thick as the 80's and this case was designed to take a 240mm radiator so that's expected.

The HDD bays provided are well done as they take 4 HDDs and only eat up 3 x 5.25" bays, like all the aftermarket conversion bays. Nice quiet fans too.

The fan and LED controls on the front are a great touch. Don't like the LEDs? Turn them off with the touch of a button.

Fit and finish on this case is beautiful. The dark hard rubbery feel of the top piece and the front on the sides makes it that much more premium. The carrying handle is "handy" if you need it. Yes the case is heavy, its VERY well built and rock solid.

The 2.5" hot swap bay is a great touch for my particular build as it was actually needed. Unfortunately the tray for that bay, in one of the cases I got, wasn't seated properly so the SSD couldn't hit the SATA & power connectors. I had to figure out how to take the case half apart to get at it and seat it properly, but was better than returning after I had already put everything in!

I'm sure many will find the hidden storage drawer in the bottom of the case a waste of space but it serves a purpose for my builds so yet again another bonus feature.

Cable management is outstanding. Plenty of room behind the board to run and tie everything down. Never had the slightest issue getting that side put back on.

The only knock I can think of is that with the 4 x 2.5" SSD holder that mounts to the bottom of the case, right in front of the power supply, it makes for some interesting routing of the power cables coming out of the PSU. Nothing that couldn't be worked around though.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case is huge! Tons of room and features. Very well laid out and easy to use. Great build quality. I am very pleased with this case and would recommend it in a heart beat. Well worth the money.

Cons: Doesn't fit in my desk where the tower cabinet is. Not a big deal because I wanted a big case and now it is out where you can see it and see through the huge panel on the side.

4 out of 5 eggsUPDATE! To my 1 egg review

Pros: Amazing case hands down, Spacious, beautiful and everything you could want out of a case.

Cons: After my runin with a Power button issue and getting that resolved i'm updating my 1 egg review to a 4 egg.

The only reason its getting a 4/5 instead of 5/5 is because like other reviewers, i received mine with a gouge in the side window, others reported dents in the metal case. The gouge was about 8 inches long, very noticeable once the plastic was taken off.

Other Thoughts: Regardless of the minor damage, its not worth the time to send back and wait for replacement. Not only cause its just cosmetic but I'm fairly certain I would cry until it returns :)

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

Pros: Beautiful case, I believe one the best cases I would have owned, had it been sent to me with a working Power Button.

Cons: After 8 hours of installation, reinstallation, uninstallation, and diagnostics, just to find out my power button doesn't work when I finally switch the reset and power switch's on the board and boot it up with the reset button, however my front panel doesn't light up properly, even though the USB's get power. Really need Cooler Master to fix this ASAP and send me some replacement parts. I'll update this to the 5 egg it deserves if i get this fixed without having to send my entire case back.

Other Thoughts: Waiting on response here from Cooler Master.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful and Reliable

Pros: - Excellent airflow
- Modabiity
- Portability
- Aesthetic
- Space!

I am highly pleased with this case. I was recommended to purchase a Cooler Master case from a friend, and I originally banked on one of the HAF series cases, but I needed something I could carry (though it is heavy). This case fit my bill. Everything from the handle, space, design, cooling, and the 2.5in hotswap bay, which makes troubleshooting laptop drives a cinch.

Cons: - It is HEAVY. If you are looking at it for the handle (like I was) for things like LAN Parties, be warned it's a chunky heavy case. But worth it.

- The 200mm crapped out after 6 months, but a simple parts replacement from Cooler Master resolved this.

Other Thoughts: Newegg lists the manufacturer warranty as 1 year. In actuality it's 2 years. I had this confirmed from Cooler Master support. That and the warranty period on my account lists it as 2.

The dust filters do need to be cleaned often if you live in a high dander/dust environment, but they work wonders on controlling contaminants in the case.

The screws for the drive cages can be confusing at first. But virtually everything in the case is held in place with thumbscrews, making assembly easy.

5 out of 5 eggsBig and beautiful.

Pros: Do not know where to begin..
*Tons of space.
*Promoted cable management with cable routers.
*Plenty of HDD drives (More than I'd ever use).
*Lots of fans, big enough to house a 240mm radiator (Corsair h105)
*Durable. Heavy. Feels like a beast.

You won't have trouble fitting any GPU cards into this case. There is roughly 13'' of clearance between the back of the case and the HDD cages. Window is nice and big, looks great when cable management is put to use.

Cons: None, as of yet.

Before building, make double sure you remove the HDD cages as it gives you access to the tool kit on the bottom (The Cool Master logo covers the front of it on the case). I was having a bit of a time trying to find the standoffs for the motherboard until I found the toolbox kit.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money. Cool Master has done it right!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it, multiple builds

Pros: This tower has plenty of room, all the attachments one could possibly need for mounting anything. Love the dust filters (just gotta clean them now and then). Room to work in and GREAT cable management.

Cons: Little large? But hey i knew that going into this 3rd build with this type of tower and no regrets.

Other Thoughts: None really, just know that power supply sits in the bottom of this case and you can rotate the hard drive bays around if you so choose so.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Love the handle on top for carrying, it is sturdy and has a lot of airflow. Exactly what I was looking for in a tower that will now last me a very long time

Cons: not TOO big of a deal, but the manufacturers of this case hid the box of screws in the bottom of the tower where you have to unscrew and move a few things around to get. I Almost had to call newegg support because i thought they shipped the tower case without all of the screws!

Other Thoughts: definitely worth the cost.
