Cons: Thin steel,flexes and bends if you look at it. Wobbled even when loaded with components.

This review is from: CFI Prime 223 CFI-A5396 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Odd mounting system for 3.5 HD's. It uses caddies,there are 3 of them. I found the best way is to slide the HD in from left side of the case with the jacks facing left,this leaves ample room for the power and sata connectors. Lock them in place with a set screw from the side of caddy. Don't put them in facing right,that leaves no room for power and sata connectors. There's no need to remove the caddies, The fourth HD is apparently a 2.5 drive that mounts at the bottom of case inside the black base the red caddies sit on.
The optical drive cage allows 3 drives,the fourth can't be used because the drive cage doesn't extend far enough. The bottom ODD cover has nothing behind it.
Cons: The front panel doesn't snap off,you need to remove 6 screws inside the case to remove it. The front fan screws in from inside the case. You have to remove the red caddies and black base to remove the front fan.
Other Thoughts: Both fans worked on my case,but the airflow is very weak so I replaced them with fans I had on hand. All front panel connectors worked and the cables were quite long.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Cons: The mounting system on the T4 version is a disaster. The mounting clip contacts the VRM's on X58 motherboards. My board nearly shorted out. It ran 9 deg celsius higher with this HSF compared to the 212+
Other Thoughts: Sadly this appears to be replacing the 212+. Coolermaster is consumer un-friendly. They won't replace missing parts and they don't answer email.READ FULL REVIEW
