The convenient front-mounted I/O Panel lets you easily connect two USB devices as well as a microphone and headset without having to fumble with wires behind the case.

Great Case 11/1/2013 11:43:25 AM

Pros: Nice looking, and a solid case

Cons: None

Overall Review: My first purchase for build my own PC back in 2006, and didn't know about the different size motherboards, so I had to return since my board didn't fit.

Great Case 8/9/2011 4:08:06 PM

Comments: Using a ATI 4870X2 with metal bracket. Stills fits in this case nice and easy. Had this computer peiced together on a table in a room with AC, Runs COOLER inside this case, probably because of the small wind tunnel that is created pulls the heat from my chipset and ram pretty nicely.

Very Satisifed, +1 CoolerMaster

Good M-ATX case 4/1/2011 2:03:54 PM

Pros: Small form factor. Easy to add components. No rough or sharp edges within the case. Can use ATX power supplies so one is not power limited. Room for long video cards.

Cons: Should at least ship with the front 120mm populated. The upper 3.25" bays will not work with hardrives without some modifications.

Overall Review: All in all a good small, light case that would be great for Lan parties.

3/22/2011 4:45:34 PM

Pros: Very solid build. Nice aesthetic. Fairly easy to work in, even with big hands.

Cons: They intend for you to mount your HDD in the bottom front corner, which is the exact opposite side of the case as the PSU. Needless to say, the power cable wouldn't reach, so I had to mount mine in one of the floppy bays.

Overall Review: There is some foam in the front panel behind the metal mesh. I'm not sure if you're intended to leave that in or not, but I did and dust gets trapped in it. After I removed it, no more trapped dust, but you could easily see the gray metal case behind it.

Good case for the money 2/16/2011 2:49:06 PM

Pros: + looks
+ size. Perfect tower for on top of a desk. Holds plenty of drives.
+ ventilation. Option for (2) 80mm fans on back and (1) 92mm or 120mm fans on front. Side panel snorkel for direct air onto CPU heatsink. Side panel vents for fresh air direclty to graphics card/power supply.
+ power and reset buttons are VERY solid
+ excellent tool-less drive locking mechanisms

Cons: - ZERO clearance for power supply, drive data cables, front panel connection lines to go between the motherboard and the upper most drive bays. Due to the inverted motherboard orientation this puts these cables directly over the front panel connection block and the SATA ports. MESSY!
- Tall RAM heat sinks need not apply if you are using tri-channel RAM. There is only a hairs breadth of space between the top of the heat sink on the standard height DIMM module I used when installed into slot A-2 (A-0 and A-1 are totally clear, even B-2 is fine) and the hard drive cage. Dual channel RAM systems should be fine since they generally only have 4 slots at most (A-0, B-0 A-1, B-1).

Overall Review: This case appears to be converted from a BTX design. Even the drive locks are labeled with BTX. I used an OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W modular P/S for this build. Like many P/S today it has a bottom mounted 120mm fan. With the inverted mother board arrangement of this case it put the P/S fan face to face with the fan for the GTX450 graphics card. Initially I was concerned about two exhaust fans facing each other creating a low pressure pocket in between thus starving each device of cooling air. Luckily there are ample ventilation holes in the side panel directly above so each device is pulling in cool air from outside the case. Nuff said.

Good case 2/2/2011 6:13:56 AM

Pros: Very well made (as I've come to know CM for), enough room for a full sized PSU. motherboard standoffs are already installed. Front panel has decent protection from dust with foam filters. Optical drive locking feature works well, seems to hold drives in place well.

Cons: There isn't a removable side panel for the motherboard. This is probably just a limitation of microATX cases. The hard drive placement is very odd. Why not mount it below the CD drive bays? Cable management was quite easy except for running the power to the hard drives at the bottom of the case from the top.
Having the power supply at the top of the case is so 90's.

Overall Review: Get the hard drive mounted below the 5.25" bays, and get the power supply mounted at the bottom of the case and you'd have 5 stars. An additional side panel for cable management wouldn't hurt either.
