5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case!

Pros: This case rocks! The build is sturdy, it has a ton of room and the looks are fantastic if you're into that aesthetic. The front panel cabling is long enough to reach the rear of the case which means that if you've got a pre-USB 3.0 motherboard you can add in USB 3.0 via a PCIe add in card with a 19 pin internal header and have some USB 3.0 goodness. All the drive bays are removable which lends itself to the case modding crowd and ads space if you plan to add in enthusiast level water cooling. The rear drive bays are 3.5" despite what many online review sites have claimed and there is a dual 2.5" drive sled that works with the tool-less drive rails which means you could conceivably run four SSD drive and a fifth 3.5" mechanical drive.

Cons: I found a couple of tiny spots in the finish that you could see the steel through. Nothing worth dinging it an egg over but I hope that Cooler Master will see this and consider giving the chassis an extra shot of finish in the future. There was also a bare spot on the bottom like the paint flaked off but as it's on the bottom and maybe 1/8" total area, meh.

Other Thoughts: This must be a second gen version. The hot-swap bays no longer have a molex power and instead have a single SATA power lead on a short length of cable and the SATA data ports are now right angle rather than sticking straight back where they'll interfere with the PSU area. I know that other users have complained about their drives getting hot in the front HDD hot-swap bays but there are two 80mm fan openings in the rear on the bottom for a reason. Don't want your drives to overheat? Populate the rear fan openings so it'll draw air over the drives.

5 out of 5 eggsI Love This Case

Pros: I love this case. This case has room for all your stuff without having extra, unused space. It is also very easy to modify. Very easy to get to and work on components.

Cons: I can't really think of any cons, maybe it could come with a top fan or have windows instead of the top or side vents? Maybe make it an oppion? One thing, don't plan on moving it too much. Once it's all together with all your components, you won't be able to move it, the rubber feet are great but grab the surface like crazy.

Other Thoughts: Over all this is a great case. I'm transplanting everything from a Cooler Master 932 HAF to downsize the footprint. It is larger than you might think, it's 1-1/2 the size of a full ATX board from the back to the front of the case. .I'm finding it very easy to modify. I took the X-Dock cage out and mounted it where the regular drive cage was so I could still us the SATA back plate. I have no need to S/O HDD's so it worked really good. I also made a matching hole out of the X-Dock area of the case so my Koolance 402X2 Pump/Reservoir would fit and it looks great. I also took the rubber baby bouncers off the bottom and drilled, tapped and ran screws on some wheels I had from another case so I could easily move it once it is all together..

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Shipping

Pros: Just initial inspection and messing around with the case, it seems to be very sturdy. Doesn't feel cheaply made at all.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Ok i'm going to have to re-edit this later. I just wanted to point out to everyone that the shipping with Newegg is tremendously fast. I ordered this case for a new build I'm doing not even 18 hours ago from the time i'm writing this, and its already at my front door. I just checked the tracking number on other items I ordered and they too are out for delivery. Amazing Newegg.

3 out of 5 eggsPain in the fingers

Pros: Lies flat (instead of upright tower)
Awesome airflow design, keeps everything cool
Plenty of room inside
Removable motherboard tray
Handy carry handles on the side.

Cons: It's huge. Seriously, measure twice, build once.

Blindingly bright power light. I get it, you're on, where's the dimmer switch?

The biggest flaw with this case is it calls itself a test bench but goes out of its way to actually not be a test bench. The only thing that is easy to swap in and out are the front hard drives, because the case offers a peripheral to quickly swap those in and out, but the rest is a pain in the... fingers. Seriously, this review hurts to type.

Let's say you want to swap the PSU, Okay a very long job to start with I grant you, but with this case, you have to remove the video card, all pci cards, then the motherboard, because the PSU is UNDER the MB, so that's the only way to get in there and disconnect all those little modular things like the fans that you had so nicely wrapped down. Same goes for swamping out rear hard drives. It is NEAR IMPOSSIBLE to plug in a hard drive in the rear or even a ROM drive with the motherboard in the way. You simply can't reach under there without scraping flesh from fingers. I bled for this case, no joke.

Now let's talk about those easy swap front hard drives. Actually not so easy. You have to screw them down into a sliding bracket that clicks them into place and connects them to the MB via the peripheral. So if you bring your broken hard drive to me, I have to unscrew my old hard drive, screw yours in, then slide it in. how is this faster than a non-test bench? Same story with the PSU. You have to screw a bracket on it's back to mount it. So instead of screwing in 4 holes to hold it, I get to screw down 8 holes, yay, and of course testing PSU's would be hell on earth with this case. Testing ROM's would suck too unless you have the hands of orphan Annie.

Let's talk about those awesome little screw nuts that are all over the place. So these take the place of standard screws. So instead of using a drill with a magnet head to hold small screws, I can use my fingers? Oh yes, much faster! /sarcasm

Other Thoughts: Bottom line is this, any changes to the under side such as PSU, hard drives, ROMs, requires you to take the entire thing apart. If you prefer this case for great cooling, size, and space, and don't intend to make a lot of changes, stick with it. Otherwise, move on.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat and Horrible

Pros: Big open area for the motherboard with great airflow and room for whatever you cram in your board.
Top of case is mesh with rubber gasket holes to mount a 200mm fan (nice)
Plenty of screws (all matching black) for everything. *only 2 fan screws for additional fans??
Removable mobo tray.
everything has thumbscrews
ALL THE PANELS FIT PERFECT!!!! I have never had a case that all the panels fit this prefect, no getting in a bind or anything.
thick with no flex.
Built in fans are silent. plenty of room for more fans.
Built in hot swap bays.
Everything is removable(sort of...just plan your install carefully and fully before you get started.
BUT......read cons

Cons: Under the mobo is where you mount your psu and hard drives. this would be great however, i put a 850w nzxt in this case. It has a bracket for the psu that allows it to extend from the case about an inch. My issue is that the built in hotswap bays are backed up to the psu. You litterally have 1 inch between the back of the psu and those bays. this makes the cables from the psu a nightmare to cram(and I do mean cram) in. I am using a modular and not even all the cables and it forms a solid mass taking up 100% of that space. YOU MUST ROUTE ALL YOUR CABLES AND HAVE EVERYTHING IN PLACE BEFORE YOU SLIDE IN YOUR PSU. If you do not your are going to have headaches.

Other Thoughts: I bought this just because. No reason. it lists as a test bench case but i would not recommend it for that. The cable routing on bottom is not great due to the fron bay almost colliding with the psu. If you had a smaller psu it would be a lot easier but who is buying big cases to run low wattage rigs?

I recommend getting your hard drives and cables all run before starting the psu cables. I also recommend not actually tightening anything down till you have everything in place and routed to your satisfaction.

that being said. Once its all together this monster looks awesome, its sturdy and should last you longer than any of the components in it.

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously awesome case

Pros: Looks - It's different from what you normally see
Horizontal 2 chamber design - Hard drives, Optical drives, and the PSU are all in the bottom chamber, leaving the critical components on the top to breathe all the fresh air freely.
There's two HD bays in the front that are hot swappable. All you have to do is install the drive to the tray and put the tray back in.

Cons: Only thing that's a bit of an annoyance is it's size. Since it's not an upright case, it has a larger footprint which makes it harder to find a place to store it. I ended up buying a square side table to put next to my desk.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's honestly an awesome case. There's room for a couple water cooled radiators if you choose, cable management is easy since you can store all the cables in the bottom chamber. Just make sure you have room for the case.

5 out of 5 eggsDam!

Pros: This has to be the most versatile case ever! Its large but when you measure it against a top tower its really like the same space taken just more like a nice cube. That is so nice is that you can take it apart to get at any place. Sides top and some of the back unbolts for access and inside you can even do so much More.I bought this case for my new Computer project and I'm very excited at the air flow and how versatile it is. Now I cant wait to get the other pieces to put it together!

Cons: Other than its strange cube size and its being as big as most towers I cant see much other than if your not wanting to take things apart to play with your system/

Other Thoughts: Its a nice versatile case. Not a tower and not a small case by any means. Its a great one for people that intend to keep building and changing their computers.

4 out of 5 eggstakes up space

Pros: Neat way to give space for hands and tinkering (technical term). Love the front fan set up and easy access for installing radiator for CPU cooler. The pull out MB shelf, the ease of accessing and installing the Power Supply into case were pluses. Lots of places for fans. the two 120's that came with it in the front are pulling air thru my water cooler radiator. one additional 120 in back side opposite the front and nice spot in bottom back for two smaller fans blowing over the solid state rack (2.5) sized. *lots of room to work in.

Cons: I read several comments about hard drive overheating. I see how easy this becomes an issue. I placed Solid State Drives in the back and only used on slot for HD. ordered a pop in fan for the second rack to help push air out of the confinement space of hard drive. Wish that area was as well ventilated as the Solid State rack in back. over all if you have fans that are both pushing and pulling air in the right spots and keep due vigilance on heat spots til you find the right fan direction placement all is good.

Other Thoughts: Bottom part of inside area between the bays could use a air distribution path, that area with potentially four heat sinks/producers needs better air movement. everything else is awesome. would have been a five egg if the front bottom area circulated air easily.

4 out of 5 eggsHUGE!

Pros: Lots of space inside
Great looking
Good construction

Cons: Doesn't come with all the fans
It's a bit bigger that I imagined, even after looking at the measurements

Other Thoughts: I bought all the extra fans that are compatible with this case and have had no HDD's overheat or fail. I think Cooler Master should offer this case filled out with all the requisite fans imho.

1 out of 5 eggsDid kill my HDDs

Pros: Nice build, looks great and tons of space

Cons: I loved this case up until it killed two of my 2TB hard drives. Thought it was just me but seeing other reviews here opened my eyes. Really disappointed that I lost so much data...
