This beastly chassis comes with rugged looks, massive air flow, and Cooler Master?s trademark intelligently designed interior. Building the mean, dream machine is now well within reach.

Most cases run tall, this one runs deep instead. Has no trouble fitting my rather large Radeon HD 5850 card and is nice and quiet with only a slight hum from the fans. If you have a skinny enclosure, make sure you can fit 9 1/2" of width before purchasing. Lots of holes to hide your cables behind and the extra width means you can get them all out of the way (full tuck) provided you have the right cable lengths. Lots of air thanks to the 200mm fan in the front. This also means it ll bring in a lot of dust. What I do is purchase a good home air filter and cut it to size to place behind the front air intakes but in front of the fan. Keeps the dust trapped and the components safe. I suppose I could reduce temperatures with a high end CPU cooler but the case keeps everything cool enough for a stock CPU fan. A LED on/off button at the top turns the red light off if you re not into that sort of thing. You ll also need to purchase a power supply separately.

My only gripes:
1) The money I saved will need to be spent on a 200mm Case Fan because they didn t include one for the side panel.
2) The tool free 5.25" device works good but the 3.5" device doesn t work well. I worry about the hard drives coming loose during transport.
3) You may not be able to tuck the motherboard power cable if the power connector is at the top of the board unless you have a really long power cable.

I fell in love with the NZXT Tempest case but didn t like the way their skinny drive rails came loose so easily. Had I known of the above gripes I probably would have picked it again but I still recommend this case as long as you don t plan on moving it around frequently.

Love this case. I replaced a perfectly good Lian-Li PC70 (big full tower all aluminum) that I ve had for more than 10 years simply because I didn t like the size of that case anymore. It was too big for the system I had in it. This case is perfectly sized for a decent gaming system. It has enough room to fit even the largest components (I have a fairly long EVGA GTX 280 and there s more room left over than in my PC70).

Got water cooling? There s room for that too (though I don t water cool). I would stick with this case if I ever decided to I believe.

It s a nice change to have the power supply located at the bottom. Cable management isn t as simple as they portray in the pictures, but it s still excellent, much better than my old case. The best setup for cable management is probably with a single hard drive. If you fill up the hard drive bays the cabling does get a little messy. Then again it could have just been me in a rush to get my system installed.

Airflow is super. I had 6 fans in my PC 70 and the 3 in this easily do a better job. The temps are about 5C lower than in my previous case. One thing I did notice was that with each of the spots where the fans are located they provide extra holes to mount smaller sized fans. So instead of the large 200m fan you can replace it with a couple of 120mm fans or even 80mm fans I believe.

Love the hard drive racks, though it took a bit to figure out how to mount hard drives in them. Once I figured it out it was simple to pop them in. Space behind the hard drives for hookups is a little tight. I have 4 SATA hard drives and with all the SATA cables and power connections, it is a tight fit getting the door back on. It doesn t bulge out or anything though so I m satisfied.

Tool-less 5 1/4" bays were a nice change, though I still secure the drives in place with screws just to make sure. The drive bay covers were definitely a nice change. They snap in nicely, no more securing with screws that eventually strip out after repeatedly removing them (a problem I had on my PC70).

The only criticism I have for the case is the lack of an identifiable texture on the buttons up top. I admit, I have the case in an unusual position, up on a table. It is more suited to being on the ground with the buttons and LEDs located on top, I just couldn t find a place to put in on the ground. Using the buttons this way is a little annoying as it can be difficult finding the right button to hit. Just wish they had a little more defined texture on the buttons so it was more easy to find them by touch.

The only feature I couldn t use that I wish I could was the eSATA port on top (I simply don t have enough SATA ports, 4x HD s and 2x burners fill up my 6 ports), and as far as I can tell there s no way to remove the pre-installed SATA cable. So I guess if that s true (no way to remove that sata cable) then that s a second minor criticism.

So the two criticisms aren t *really* criticisms since they only apply to my specific situation...you could say they fall outside the bounds of normal use. So I m willing to forgive them on those. They are minor anyway.

Overall a great product, I highly recommend it.

This case has been more than I expected. For just a mid tower, it has most if not all of the features of a full tower. This case has enough space to fit just about anything from the newest video card to liquid cooling systems. With the dust filters, dust is not present inside the case after 3 months of use. I highly recommend this case for anyone who wants to build a gaming rig but do not want or do not have space for a huge full tower.

*Note*
If you have a hard drive or Optical Drive that vibrates a lot, the tool free device feature will cause rattling in the case. The hard drive cannot be secured with screws but the optical drive can be and I recommend doing so.
