Huge with great airflow

Pros: I bought this after realizing the Cooler Master MasterLiquid 240 water cooling system I bought wouldn't fit in my old full ATX case. I do a lot of video rendering so keeping heat down was important to me. With all fans running AND with my water cooler installed all my component temps sit at a nice frosty <35C. I overclocked my system and turned all the fans up to max RPM and it's still very quiet. I appreciate being able to turn off the case LED lights from the front button.

Cons: It is a very big case of course. To get the side panel off you have to remove a screw. My old case had a handle like a car door to remove the side panel which I liked but it's not a big issue at all.

Hearty looking case with great air flow

Pros: Everything Else (My cons are nitpicky)

Cons: I knew from reading other reviews the side fan duct would need to be removed because of my 1080 ti(super easy to remove this duct), but I wasn't so sure about the extra interior VGA duct. The interior one can house an extra small fan to direct air flow straight to your PCIe slots from the front, and I really wanted it to work. Sadly, it didn't fit even with multiple fitting locations.

Other Thoughts: One thing to be aware of, if you need to remove the top of the case, whether it be for a fan change or to access the front panel, be careful not to rip what I believe is a grounding wire from the front IO.

3/ 5

Pros: - Lots of space to work with, and expand as well as cable management.
- Numerous amounts of expansion space for SATA drives.
- Silent cooling.
- Robust design and sturdy.

Cons: - Front I/O panel wiring leaves very little room to install a second exhaust fan at the top. Additionally, the front I/O Microphone jack shorted out on its own (there were no headphones plugged into it).
- Static and buzzing coming from headphones plugged in on the front headphone jack (until it eventually burned out or shorted).
- No second fan at the top! Includes only 1 fan at the top despite the case design looking like it has two.
- Clear acrylic on the side -easily- scratches. I flicked a piece of lint off of it with my nail, and that was enough to leave a scratch on it. Wiping it down with paper towels is enough to scratch it.

Other Thoughts: Always wanted a HAF X, but had settled for the HAF 932 since it was all blue LEDs and at the time all my stuff was blue. Unfortunately do to the terrible design of the front I/O circuitry and wiring at the top leaving very little space to properly fit a second fan at the top I had to knock off another egg.

This case would be much better, with a larger hole at the top for the front panel cables, and come with a second fan preinstalled on top.

Just what the Dr. Ordered!

Pros: This is a huge case with plenty of room for all your components. The hot dock for ssd drives are easy to use and although not shown in the instructions are easy to install. MB standoffs are clearly labeled, and the included wires are simple to identify. Its massive size allows for maximum airflow and keeps components very cool.

Cons: ITs size can be restrictive in several categories. Primarily, if you do not have a ton of room on the right side of the desk, you may experience trouble placing this beast. Secondly, due to its large size, you will need to potentially buy cable extenders to properly reach the MB power ports. The other major drawback of this case is the fan baffles. Due to their design, and despite the size of this case, there is no way to fit a 1070 or 1080 video card in any slot without removing the baffle. This is the only serious drawback to the design of this case.

Other Thoughts: I have been running this case for a few days now and am seriously impressed with the coolness of the components and the airflow. I am running the fans at 50% and the core temp while gaming is 42C. Superb! I would highly recommend this case to those that have plenty of space and need tons of room for larger components. Despite the poor design of the baffles, they are removable and should not present any significant challenges.

Sturdy Case, but with issues

Pros: -Quiet (When the fans cooperate)
-Color (red)
-Easy install

Cons: -Top fan clicks randomly for a few minutes, and gradually gets louder and louder until it suddenly stops. This gets EXTREMELY Loud. I contacted Cooler Master customer support and received no answer on attempting to procure a replacement fan.
-Blue LEDs on front are too bright

Other Thoughts: -I would recommend
-Wish Cooler Master had better customer support, especially at the cost of the case

Computer

Pros: This tower has a lot of room, with additional fans it keeps everything very cool, it is sturdy, attractive and overall an above average tower. I have two in service now and have had many different towers over the past 30 plus years. This is a keeper.

Cons: Corsair 280 mm radiators need holes drilled in the top to fit but it is an easy process and the cooler H110i works superbly.

LOVING this Case

Pros: - Easily fits all of your components
- Has great functionality to keep your wires organized and out of the way for all of those OCD folks out there like me
- Fantastic fast installation functionality (easy lock-in drive bays, etc.)
- QUIET
- Keeps your machine nice and cool
- Tough piece of equipment
- Plenty of space to put in liquid cooling units

Cons: - Instructions are mainly pictures, and some are kind of ... eh
- Massive interior means massive exterior - makes it tough to store it in cabinetry, etc.
- HEAVY - especially once you load in your components
- The internal cover for the power supply wires - the right-hand screw spot is pretty much right over an opening, so if the screw drops while you are trying to put it in ... <.< >.> Let's just say 5th time is a charm.
