5 out of 5 eggsSolid Overall

Pros: This is a very sexy case as cases go, the brushed aluminum looks great. It runs fairly quietly with manufacturer equipped fans. Installation is a breeze once you understand how simple the side door is to get off, and I always appreciate thumbscrews everywhere instead of a bunch of normal screws. This is my first Coolermaster and it looks like they're pulling through.

Cons: The fans in the back are 2x80 mm fans, which is nice to have two output fans in the back, but larger fans would have been appreciated. The plastic doodads to slide drives in would be nice, but I feel most secure with screws anyways.

Other Thoughts: Plenty of room to work with, a great airflow design, and a sleek look make this a winner. It's no heavier than other similar cases, despite what another used said. Plenty of opportunity for more or better cooling makes this a solid overclocking case as well. Cheers.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a door!

Pros: This is a beautiful case and it runs super cool because of some well thought-out features. But most of all - who would have thought that one could get so much enjoyment out of opening and closing the door? It's a beautiful thing, and closes with a satisfying solidity. During long renderings or downloads, I just sit there and play with it.

Cons: It would be nice to have those gizmos that slide drives in and out without screws, but this is a minor point. The overall quality and good design more than make up for it.

5 out of 5 eggsw00t!!!

Pros: Best case I've ever owned. You can't see it but ENTIRE case is brushed aluminum except of the air duct. Great looking, well manufactured, very solid. Front door sound like a jail cell when it closes.

Cons: Um.... um.... hmmm... we'll say no. Deffinately none. I would have this cases children.

Other Thoughts: A little pricey but the free shipping and free power supply I recieved with it more than made up for it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I love the design of this case, and it looks as good in person as the pictures show. It has a lot of room to move around in. Seems to be put together very well.

5 out of 5 eggsHard to find better

Pros: Excellent quality
Nice size, can fit all your gear
Good airflow design
All parts quality through and through
Screws instead of plastic mounting brackets
Aluminum finish amazing, Drive door cover solid aliminum plate, very sturdy

Cons: Front fan power jumper too short, forced to use molex converter
Hard Drive bays facing rear of case, tight with a big Video Card (Radeon X1850 for example), you'll need to remove video card when switching drives.
Case is being discontinued by Cooler Master

Other Thoughts: Shame this guy is going away. With the exception of custom solutions, this case has got to be one of the highest quality cases for the money. Blows away anything from Thermaltake's fare easily on the quality side. If you in the market for a case, this is a no brainer. Great job Cooler Master!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWOW....LIKE A VAULT

Pros: It is rare in this day and age to find a product of this quality and price.I have not got the mobo for this yet.I am however very impressed with the overall quality.The front door reminds me of a vault.If I could give it more eggs than 5 eggs I would.Im sure it will be large enough for all my needs.I personally like havening the switches and ports on top.Its a very clean look.It is the best case I have seen and I think it could sell for a lot more.Even the bottom looks nice!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I like having 2 smaller fans in back.If one should fail you still have a backup.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Chassis I've Worked With

Pros: This is a great case for someone who opens their computer a lot. It's got a lot of room, all components are easy to access, and it can accommodate almost anything. Construction quality is great. Everything is laid out simply and logically. With this chassis sitting on my desk, all I have to do is unscrew 3 thumb screws to change almost any component. Taking off the back panel makes cable management easy, and the removable motherboard tray makes things a lot easier sometimes. The supplied fans provide good cooling and can easily be upgraded if more cooling is desired. The mesh front panels provide good airflow and do an excellent job of keeping dust out.

Cons: I would have preferred 120mm fans in the rear and on the top, but the 80mm's are quiet and provide good cooling. I'm not a fan of the blue lights, but LEDs on the fans can easily be disconnected with a simple wire snip (and easily reconnected later). Top i/o panel is a little awkward to have flipping up for some setups.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended. No real complaints. There are a lot of good cases, but this one is better than most - especially at its price point.

5 out of 5 eggsstill looking for a con

Pros: I like the ports on top but I also like the fact that you have the option of changing them to an additional 80mm fan port. Another pro was that this thing had room for my 8800 GTX video card. The pull-out tray made installation a snap and it even has a filter to catch most of the dust being sucked in the front fan.

Cons: The only minor annoyance is that I had to rotate all three fans 45 degrees to get the wires running out of my way but something like this is typical of all cases and it is much simpler than some things I've had to do to other cases for better cable management.

Other Thoughts: The front cover is very well built and I've always liked the brushed aluminum look.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great case

Pros: I have owned a Wavemaster for about 3 years and I thought it was the base case I have ever owned. This one is even better.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build First Case Purchase

Pros: I just finished building my first PC with this case. Everything fit. Mother board lined up perfectly. This case has very good construction. Quieter than my Dell and looks better too. Solid. Will probably be reused and reused. Fans with blue LEDs are cool. Very pleased with this case.

Cons: The housing for the powersupply had to be modified. There is an upper bracket on the back of the housing that got in the way of the modular cables. I used a Xion 600W power supply. Used Dremel to cut away bracket. Took all of 5 minutes with cutting disk. Did not alter function at all. Also the front fan cable is about 3 inches too short and will not reach the motherboard however it does come with power adapter to connect directly to the powersupply. Still love this case. Recommend to all.

Other Thoughts: Even the wife loves the case what can I say more. I got this case because of the reviews. It stays cool and is very quiet.
