Rated 5 out of 5 by Pete1234 Fantastic case, poor fans
I am hardware engineer who spends most of his time designing rack mountable pc chassis'. On ordering this case I was mainly looking for the ability to fit many 3.5" HDD's with as little noise as possible.
My overall impression of the case was that it was made to an extremely high quality and the functional design was simply stunning with some really innovative features and options.
I brought home from work my box of assorted PC screws so I could fit all of my hardware into the chassis, this box returned to work unopened as Cooler Master had provided every screw possibly needed for all of the various options, they also included a tool for screwing in the motherboard standoffs which was brilliantly simple to use!
My only criticism of the chassis design would be the fact that the front air filter is not between the air intake and the fans so it will not be doing anything. I opted for the more expensive version which came pre-fitted with the extra-silent fans, this was wasted money as while the fans are extremely quiet they have a very small airflow figure which was inadequate for cooling my HDD's. (Also two of the three fans arrived damaged, Cooler Master are replacing these free of charge immediately).
All in all its a great case but get the one without the fans.
