5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: For a tower on the floor, the buttons-at-the-top, PS-at-the-bottom design works nicely. Plenty of room for fans etc.

Cons: The way I have it set up, the front fan is an intake, meaning it collects dust on the front panel.

4 out of 5 eggsDiscontinued by Cooler Master!!! WHY?

Pros: Filtered front bezel which is easily removed and cleaned.
Extremely roomy for its size.
Four hard drives can be mounted in Three 5.25" bays and placed in any of the Nine 5.25 bays. This can be useful for making short cables reach the motherboard.
Fans are quiet.
PSU mounts at the bottom away from the CPU. (I turn my PSU upside down so as not to suck up dust.)

Cons: More fan mounts than necessary. It does no good to have filters on the front when dust can be sucked in everywhere else.
No reset button.
Power/Jack panel could be a movable 5.25 mount.
Only came in black. White would be nice...
Only one Egg off for these reasons.

Other Thoughts: Cooler Master has FOOLISHLY discontinued this case! Just as I was about to get my hands on one for my new pc! (which has been scattered about on my desk since December) I have a 690 and it does not hold a candle to the 590 (which I purchased for a friend). Yet they continue making the 690 monstrosity... I've built and worked on a number of PC's since the 90's and the 590 was by far the best case I've worked in.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Solid/Sturdy Case. Plenty of space for added cooling. Mostly tool-less design. bottom mount psu. Expandability.

Cons: Only 1 HDD tray. More of a disappointment but knew it only came with 1.
bottom mount psu. Only reason for that being a con is my psu (Silverstone 850W Modular) 8-pin cpu power cable almost did not reach the top of the motherboard. I had to run it above the motherboard and under the pci/gfx cards. Would not lower egg rating as its not really a con, just something to watch out for.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if 2nd HDD tray was included. Can't complain for the price I paid at a local shop though. Should have identical tray available as an option. Plenty of room for all the aftermarket options available. Will have to buy alternative. I was running a Server case with same hardware below and the CPU temp dropped about 10*C while idle and about 5*C under full load on both cores. Some fan noise is heard with 3 120's and gfx fan but when listening to music or a movie, it's not noticeable.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this case

Pros: Spacious, with good cooling, plenty of options, easy to clean front intake, and designed to be efficient. It isn't the most glamorous or the most beautiful. It was just built to work and work well.

Cons: The fan slot for the CPU on the right side is almost impossible to shop for. I still haven't found the right sized fan for a decent price.

Other Thoughts: It has taken quite a beating, with three long trips back and forth and has survived it all. It was also the case for my first build, and I wanted to be sure that I was getting the best for my money. After almost three years, I can say I was successful.

4 out of 5 eggsLots of open air

Pros: Plenty of vents. Plenty of room. Case fans are quiet. Easy to work with. Like the vent behind the MB where the CPU is. Able to route some cables behind MB opening up the chasis air flow event more. Sturdy. Nice paint finish.

Cons: Whish there was a second front pannel fan mount high enough to feed the CPU. was able to add one using twist ties which works, but not very profesional. Also, think it would be noce to have vent covers (for side and top) in case you wanted to close some off to enhance air flow.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if the LEDs in the front fan had easy way to be turned off (vs having to cut wires). The power LED (blue) is very bright, which I like, but other may not. Would like to have taller feet so bottom mounted PSU fan was not so close to floor. Decided to invert PSU.

I builtthis system for a friend who will ve running in non-airconditioned Miami home. Hoping the case is open enough to handle high temps next summer.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's big and cool

Pros: It's a Cooler Master, my #1 favorite brand of case - been using their cases exclusively for years now. It's pretty big which means lots of room for lots of air flow. Bottom mounted PSU makes me happy and top positioned USB ports makes me happy.

Cons: It's big - doesn't fully fit into its spot on my desk (it's too long). The power LED is a bright sucker, because it's in the bedroom if I need to leave it running overnight to download something I have to cover the light with a burp cloth or something.

Other Thoughts: Simple design means I don't feel like I'm 12 and needing to bling everything I own. But not so simple that it doesn't have elegance.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Case

Pros: Huge case, lots of slots for fans. hdd 120mm fan is very nice and Coolmaster even sells an add-on 3-4 hdd adaptor with a 120mm fan on it, for a total of 8 hdds

Cons: Bottom mount PSU if that boths you

Cable management could be better

Other Thoughts: Buy It. It also is set up for water cooling

5 out of 5 eggsMy Goto Case for Testing

Pros: The case is easy to work in, great built-in drive holders, super fast access to the front drives.

Cons: Minor gripe, it has hard plastic feet. Not such a big deal but that means no real traction. The case will move around if bumped.

Other Thoughts: I love the number of fans and the quick release face plate. I can swap in and out new drives in under a minute. I really love this mid-tower.

It can be a little cramped if you are using large parts. I can fit a coolermaster V8 CPU cooler inside the case but you will have to drop one of the side fans to accommodate it.

Also get's a little cramped if you have large GPUs. AKA 2 285GTX.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet Case

Pros: Good deal of room to work with and easily holds ATX board with all the goodies. This case provides for some amazing cooling as I have my Q6600 OC'd to around 3.4 and it barely ticks over 34C on full load with Noctua heatsink and all but one of the fan slots filled

Cons: 1) Big CPU heatsinks make top side fan slot unusable (less then 10mm of space between side of case and heatsink not that big of a deal though)
2) Cable Management not as good as I would have liked, If you don't have a modular PSU I would recommend getting one as I'm barely able to put all mine behind the mobo tray
3) No reset button

Other Thoughts: Q6600
750i mobo
1TB WD & 80GB WD
BFG (R.I.P) 9800GT OC
4GB OZC Reaper
Noctua NH-U12P
5 120mm fans

I really wish the cable management had a little bit more space and it would've been 5 Eggs

Pros: Just get the case it is worth every penny. Some people are just trivial and love to complain about nothing.

Cons: Say what now?

Other Thoughts: Should come with HDD already inside free...........Umm
