This case was easy to setup, no screws for the hard drives, cards or rom drives. The PSU being mounted on the bottom keeps it much cooler. The case is well constructed. I recommend a modular PSU for this case. Make sure you have enough room above the top of the case for the fan to push out the hot air.

I am building a non-gamer fast machine and ordered the Cooler Master Full HAF AMD case (see review), but after receiving the Gladiator have decided to use this case instead for many reasons: I am using an AMD Phenom X4 chip, not an AMD Phenom II X4 which is on the Full cases badge, and this case is smaller and will go into my work space without moving anything around. This case uses tooless design as does the larger case; just not as fancy.
The potential air flow is more than enough for all but the fastest gamer and water cooled applications. (Water cooled. Never thought I would see that in a PC)
The Power supply goes on the bottom for better cooling. The case comes with one 5.25" to 3.5" drive converter slide so you don t have to buy that.
I will probably add two extra 120mm fans (to back and side) to go with the standard 140mm top and 120mm front fans; that should cool it off!
The only big drawback for me was that the Gladiator has only two USB connectors in the front compared to four on the full HAF.
Just a side note: This mid tower case is the same size as my old full tower case of years gone by. So, if you think the new full tower cases are the same as the old ones, you had better check the dimensions because things have changed.
Go to the Cooler Master Web Site to get a much better idea of the units capabilities. They have videos for a lot of there cases.

PROS: Nice looking design! With places for two side fans and with the 140mm top fan and the option of adding a back fan, there is lots of cooling.

The case is sturdy with almost no sharp edges and lots of room to install your stuff. The mounts for both the hard drive and the DVD drive work well and provide solid retention.

With two side fans with mounting for fans up to 140mm, there is good airflow and cooling.

CONS: I wasn t thrilled with both the HD LED and ON LED being white. Tradition, in my opinion would have been best --- blue LED for the ON light and RED LED for the hard drive. Also, the viewing angle for these LEDs is narrow, i.e. you have to be looking at the front from in-front to see the light, off angle is cut off.

The front case fan is so filtered (filter is fine foam) that very little air passes thru. Removing the foam helps airflow, but still not much is getting thru. Maybe a higher RPM fan would help here. The one that comes with it is a 1200 RPM fan. The perferrated cover sheet in front of the front fan could also stand larger holes here.

The tool-less clips for retaining add-on cards are fragil. Mine for the video card broke easily, but you can install a screw in that situation, so all ends well. To be honest, I was pressing hard on it to try and make it latch, but not more pressure than I ve used on other computer cases with this type of fixture. Examining the plastic part showed it to be weak, a poor design.

I ve concentrated on what I felt were weaknesses, but I really do like the case and would buy it again. It was well and acqurately made, good paint job, nice front bezel, etc. The layout for the internal parts is good, easy to work with and one feature that I really appreciated was the cut-out behind the processor for installing the CPU cooler where a back plate is used for support. Other cases make you remove the MoBo if you are doing something that requires access to the bottom of the board.

My conclusion is I like the case, it s not perfect, but there is no such thing as a perfect case!
