COOLER MASTER Centurion 541 RC-541-SKN1 Black Aluminum bezel, SECC chassis MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Aluminum bezel, SECC chassis MicroATX Mini Tower
  • USB / Audio Front Ports
  • Side Air duct
  • 2 External 5.25" Drive Bays
  • 2 Internal 3.5" Drive Bays

Pros:

The aluminum front panel is beefier and nicer than I was expecting, no sharp edges in the case, tool-less design for HD, CD, and floppy drives.

Cons:

Because the motherboard mounting is inverted from most cases, the 4-pin CPU wire was a tight stretch from the PSU. What makes it worse is the ducting on the side panel means the 4-pin CPU wire needs to go around it which makes it an even tighter stretch. And to top it all off, the duct on the side doesn't line up with the CPU, it's off center by about an inch. I thought the CPU location was standard so this should line up.

Despite these cons I got everything in the case and it will work for my needs.

Other Thoughts:

Whereas the front aluminum panel was much nicer than I expected, the sides of the case are still thin steel. Not as thin as some cases I've seen, but no where near as nice as an all aluminum case. Of course, no where near as expensive as an aluminum case. Overall I'm pleased with the case. I rated 3 stars simple because of the 4-pin CPU wire issue.
