Large, Pretty, Convient and Very Cool.
Not Much.
This case is great, there's alot of room for everything, even with it's three fan's, the mobo and the psu fan it's still rather quiet. Any concerns with the door, place some thing that leans the door open when swung open, if your case i perfectly level then this is not a problem. it's very nice aluminum and the blue light is just perfect for a look.

Experience: 2 Days
Attractive, well made, very nice MB Tray
IO Ports incompatable with Sound Blaster
This case is very attractive and I had no trouble with the front door swinging shut. Although the design is a few years old now I just liked the look of it so much I could see no better alternative.
Build went really quickly, my seasonic 430 fit very nicely.
I really wanted to make use of the Headphone and mike jack on the top of the case. That feature fit perfectly into my usage of the computer for online games and flight sims.
The wire harness for those plugs has several options for onboard sound plugs(none that would work on my ASUS A8N-E mother board though) But certainly none of them work with a sound blaster card.
Out of the box it really should support the major sound card vendor or advertise that it does not.
I love the case so much though that I gave it a 5 anyway.

Quality Construction
Looks Amazing!
Simply outstanding. This case is truly piece of art. It looks great, but does its job as well. The slide out motherboard tray makes life very easy!

Experience: 7 Months
Great style and very solid
Excellent case all round. Aluminium panels pull heat away very well ! 2 X 80 mm fans at front cool my 2 Raptors very well also. My only issue with the case is space,very cramped , my 6800gt s power plug an sata plugs for the raptors are very tight. This case could use another 2 inches in depth. But hey nothings perfect is it !

very stylish
removable motherboard tray
front intake fans are blocked and dont alow much air in
only 80mm fan ports
I love this case. It is very stylish and modern without looking out of place. The removeable motherboard tray will help installing hardware very easy. The only problem i find with it is the airflow is a little restricted. The front fans are partialy blocked from a peice of plastic and it would be nice if it supported 120mm fans. Still i am happy with this purchase.

100% Aluminum
Absolutely Beautiful Design
Removable Mobo Tray
Front Door automatically closes & leans on open optical drive doors
I must say, I truly love this case overall. Took some advice to get the best method of managing all my cables in this case, and it worked out great. The removable mobo tray is quite helpful and makes the job alot easier to install your system into the case. The front design is great, and the blue LED is not too bright, just enough light to make it look nice. My only issue is that the front door covering the drive bays will not stay open on its own, and if you are putting a CD in the drives, the door will slowly swing back & lean against the door, not a huge issue but it bugs me to say the least. 9.5/10 for the Wave Master in my eyes!

Experience: 1 Weeks
Brushed Aluminum Look
Removable Mobo Tray
Lots of INternal 3.5 Bays
Front Fans are a Pain to access
This is overall THE BEST case I have ever owned! This case truly lives up to its name with, its stylistic but simple look and the brushed aluminum. As fas as whats inside, be cautious of The Ultra X-Connect POwer supplys since the way this case is designed the PSU will barely fit in due to the location of connectors. The removable mothervoard tray is an awesome feature and very handy.

-Extremely light
-Great brushed aluminum finish
-Removable motherboard tray
-Thumbscrews for most connection points
-3 fans included, with a fourth optional
-Very good build quality
-Top mounted usb/audio/firewire connection port?
-Aluminum isn't as sound suppressing as heavy metal cases are
-Some edges on drive bays are still razor sharp (when will every edge on a case be bent? Never?)
I am very happy with this case! I've always been a micro atx case person, prefering small chassis over the larger, but this case has it in spades. Very nice finish, quality build construction, very light, plenty of internal room, and great cooling. Great product!

Experience: 1 Months
Great Looks, Great Quality
Three fan slots (80mm), plus you have an option of chaning the top input port into a blowhole. The quality is amazing, nothing is loose or scratched.

CoolerMaster always makes great cases, and this is no exception.
