4 out of 5 eggsDecent for a budget case

Pros: This is a decent case for a budget build. I was pleseantly surprised that it came with enough MB standoff's. Superb airflow, which is why I use Cooler Maseter cases. The inside has nice rolled edges so you don't cut yourself. Their tool-less drive bays are better than the last time I used one of their cases for a build abuot 4 yrs ago.

Cons: Like most I will have to say the case is a little flimsy/weak. However when you install additional case fans, it helps firm up the case. I also do not like the expansion slots. This is why I dropped the rating by 1 egg.

4 out of 5 eggsCool case

Pros: - Looks cool
- Good cooling *similar to Rosewill Challenger*
- Nice big window

Cons: - No back plate for cable management. (makes cable managing fairly difficult.
- The plates that you have to remove for your video card are cheap, and caused me to almost bend/break the backside of the case.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to remove the pci express covers for your DVI/HDMI hookup before installing your motherboard. If you don't you will wind up in a sticky situation similar to me.

- You will need to buy 4 120MM case fans to get this thing where it needs to be!

4 out of 5 eggsIts been around for a while

Pros: 1. This case is inexpensive
2. Compact and well-built- I've had mine for over 4 years now and despite the fact I'm very very tired of looking at it, it can't be beat for a nice case with a clear plexi side to it.
3. Used it with 2 mobos and processors so far, my cat jumps on top of it and still is in good shape.

Cons: Again like others said:
1. Top fan spots are useless for radiator + fans, use a regular fan.
2. Bottom fan area is useless, too tight of a fit for a fan-leave it blank.
3. USB ports on front is angles up, for me its annoying so I didn't connect them, I put in a card reader on the 3.5 port.
4. Side plexi wall port for a small fan is useless-it will hit mobo, leave it blank.

Other Thoughts: There are more expensive boxes and larger ones but this one does what gamers and do-it-your-selfers want.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little case

Pros: This case looks nice,has lots of air flow and all the room most people need.

Cons: The two top 120mm fan mounts in the top are useless for water cooling, in fact if you have big VRM heat sinks only one is good for a fan. These should have been offset closer to the side cover away from the MOBO not centered.

The bottom 120 is too close to the PSU for a 130 mm fan to fit, Should have been place a bit more forward.

Other Thoughts: Some say no cable management, not totally true, I have set up two systems with this case model. I stash cable behind the 3.5 drive bays, the 8 pin CPU power I route back across the PSU and up the back of the MOBO, front panel, PCIE etc all run straight forward to behind 3.5 drive bays then down or up and straight to where the go/come.

I built one with a Noctua NH-D14 and the cooler does not touch the side panel.

The side panel fan (I had to add it) is below the GPU, this is good, leaves room for things like the D14 and brings in air for the GPU.

For the money it is an awesome case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for the price

Pros: Cooler Master Elite 430 case is a decent case for the price. Has a nice sleek and clean design. Has some holes for cable management and hardware placement in the case is well thought out. Good case for a budget build.

Cons: Only real issue I have with this case is the cable manage on the right side of the case is no well thought out. There is hardly any room to hide cable on the right side without having to smash them. Hopefully in the next edition the will take this into consideration.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Case for a really nice Budget PC, Love the side window.

Cons: USB 2.0 but that is expected from this older model, you have to get creative with cable management, but it is quite easy to hide a couple cables through the back by the power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case on a budget

Pros: Very roomy case. Cable management is not the best, but i made it work quite well.

Cooling is phenomenal once its loaded up with fans.

Cons: Cable management

Other Thoughts: AsRock 970Extreme3 Motherboard with AMD FX-6100 clocked @ 4.5Ghz runs nice and cool

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

Pros: This case is pretty nice for the price. It has lots of fan mounting locations, some tool-less drive brackets, reasonably length on the cables. It has enough space for most all video cards.

Cons: It's a low end case so I'm not taking eggs off but you should know that there are some downsides. The side pannels are reasonably sturdy but the metal on the back is pretty thin. It bends easily. There isn't an SSD mounting point. It only comes with a front fan.

Other Thoughts: Overall this case fits my needs pretty well and looks good doing it. I added a rear fan and it fits everything I wanted. It has reasonably good airflow. I needed a bracket for my SSD but other than that my build went pretty easily. There is an included tool for tightening down the mobo mounts as well. More mounting point holes would have been nice but what is there should mount most ATX boards.
