Experience: 2 Years


Versatile, sturdy, good looking, compact, durable, great front panel connectors, fast easy removal of all panels. Awesome airflow when all fan slots are utilized.
Drive lock mechanisms are a bit iffy. Cable management options are limited. This case is outdated for it's current price. Coolermaster ought to do a revision of this case with usb 3, fan controller and improved cable management. I'd definitely buy another one.
I purchased this case over two years ago and it's had a LOT of various hardware combinations in it as it's passed down through our family.
My youngest boy now uses it as a gaming rig and it it housing an FX790 board, Phenom II 720 BE (4 cores)b 3.4 GHz 1.46V, A50 cooler, crossfire 5830s O/Ced, Earthwatts 650, 4GB ram, 2HDs, 5 X 120MM case fanes and a Scythe 4 channel fan controller in the 3 1/2" bay.
The three 120MM fans exhausting the top / back of case provide awesome airflow with the O/Ced 5830s running around 70C under full load. Cable management with this configuration was a challenge but with patience and lots of zip ties and bandaids, quite doable.
This is a very durable case and if Coolermaster upgraded it a bit I'd buy another.

Experience: 6 Months


Lots of cooling
Drives are a pain to get in and out.
This is a good cheap case. I'm using this for a couple of business computers. For anything else I'd upgrade to something better.

Experience: 2 Months


Looks good
Awesome price
Cable management is almost non-existent
I had some issues installing an H80
The case itself looks great, and it's a steal for the price.
However, if you like guts to look nice and organized, this isn't the case for you. I also had an issue when I was trying to install the Corsair H80. There wasn't enough room at the back of the case to install the back mounting plate. I had to unscrew half of the motherboard to make some room.
If you're on a budget, I'd recommend this case for you, but don't get it if you have a little extra money to burn.

Price, mainly toolless and abundant cooling.
No cable management, drives face front of case rather than sideways, and back PCI slots are not reusable after removal, and quite hard to remove in the first place.
Great case in terms of it's price/cooling/hardware space options, plus it's got a generous window with a fan mount. But certain things were not to great, that's what you get for a low value case though.

Experience: 1 Months


Nice look
good airflow
small when you have to modify something in the hardware.
Verry nice look.. doesn't take a lots of space but that come with a downside. When you have to "play" in your computer, it doesn't offer a lots of space.

Experience: 2 Weeks


black interior
black screws!
included fan is quit
only 1 fan
no usb3 or esata
tooless stuff is crap
Would definitely recommend for a mid-end gaming system. Always love finished interiors, especially when there is a window. Was easy to work with. The weaknesses dont outweigh the price for this case though so i would still definitely recommend this to friends.

Experience: 2 Days


Inexpensive, light, black interior, blue led fan, tool-less design.
Non-replaceable PCI slot covers, lack of cable management options, front grill asthetics.
For the cost you get features of much more expensive cases. The light weight makes it a pleasure to move the case around while installing parts. The flimsiness mentioned by other reviewers isn't a factor once the computer is assembled. Great case for those who aren't going to install massive radiators and a million drives.

Experience: 1 Months


Nice look, Efficiently placed front panel items, take a look p my summary for more in-depth details & strengths.
To me, the quality of the case seems cheap. It feels like cheap plastic and cheap metal. I don't like the way the side panels bend and I know that I'm expecting a lot but don't like the fact that there's no place at all for Water-cooling accessories.
I bought this case a month or so ago to upgrade my case in order for me to water cool. I installed yate loon black/red 120mm fans in there and it looks beautiful.

I love the fact that the PSU is mounted on the bottom. There isn't much room for cable management however I got it done and hid all my cables beside the hard drive bay.

I like the fact that the 120mm fan on the front can be installed on the OUTSIDE and the front panel can still be correctly attached, this gave me room to have all my hard drives & their cables facing the front of the case (hiding the cables in the side panel view.)

Overall this case is awesome with red LED's, red/black yate loons, and my MCR220 modded to the top of the case. I'm loving water-cooling and I'm loving this case.

I miss my Thermaltake SopranoRS101 though... I would have preferred to do water-cooling in that case. The thermaltake has way better build quality, the metal on that is very stern. The piano plastic finish on the thermaltake is what still rocks my socks.

This case is alright... I give it 75%.

Experience: 2 Months


Cheap, dust filters and the power supply to the bottom is good.
Flimsy, cooling so-so and no cable management.
I bought this with no additional fans at first and it ran very hot with a stock Phenom II X4 955 and a RADEON HD 5770. Bought all fans for every space I had and it's a little better, but not awesome by any mean... Very flimsy too. It's cheap so I guess it can do for budget build.

Experience: 1 Months


Nice looking, got plenty of space. lots of fans to install
Defect, the MB screws are very tight when I try to place the MB.
I got a faulty case first. I didnt expect coolermaster would have low quality case. I thought it is a good brand. Afterall, it worked fine. I would think before my next purchase with coolermaste.

Comment: Very functional and well-performing, as long as there is not an extra-long videocard blocking the inside. A very good case for reasonable systems.
