Overall a great mid-tower case and great for anyone looking to build.
Mauro serrano
I didn't, but I still managed to maintain good cable management and the case looks to be very clean on the inside.
Andrew R
The cable routing holes made it easier to manage cables from the power supply.

This case is hot off the new Cooler Master Storm line. I ordered it in anticipation of putting together a new $2k gaming rig. It has several features that make it worth the price:

-3 built in fans (front intake, top, and rear)
-Factory lighting on each fan (standard is red, blue is optional)
-Front panel ports: 4 USB 2.0, 1 eSata, 1 headphone & mic, kill switch for fan lights (stealth mode)
-Handle (sturdy for transporting a loaded rig)
-Mounts for two additional fans on the left panel for increased airflow
-Excellent cable management out of the box (tucked out of the way giving you room to work)
-Easy install screwless rails for your HDDs
-Extremely easy install of optical drives (also screwless)
-Screwless install of expansion cards
-PSU mounts on the bottom, giving you space for a large/custom chipset fan

Those are just the features I can think of right now. It also came with a handy little graphic to assist with mounting your mobo according to the correct form factor.

My only issue is that once I installed two GeForce GTX 285 cards (this card is double wide requiring two slots on the back panel), there is very little room left to access ports on the bottom of the mobo. That has nothing to do with the case design - but it is something you'll run into if you're installing twin double-wide graphics cards. They fit well but with little room to spare.

I don't particularly like the square front panel power button as it tends to get stuck on a corner rather than smoothly sliding up and down like a round power button - but this has not caused any problems - you just have to press it so it comes back up.

All in all, it's a great case and very well thought out.

Ok, I commented on some of the low scored reviews of this case, only to find out that the reviewers were either first time builders, or never opened the instruction manual.

#1
Front panel comes off for easy installation of the CD/DVD/BD Drive. Again, it may be a little tough to push in, which is a poor design choice, BUT it went in for me. So don't complain about 'taking out the motherboard'. SMH.

#2
Clips that hold the video card, sound card etc, are NOT to be removed. They swing back when pressed on, so the card can be inserted easily.

Ok now for my real review.

This case is AMAZING. I actually considered this as an upgrade from my previous CM Stacker 830, which was also IMO the mother of all cases. This one met it in every aspect, and beat it in a few... The lack of a removable HDD cage is a HUGE plus to me, and removing and adding drives is SOOOOO easy!!! The interior is painted all black, there is a top rear 140mm exhaust fan, 2 120mm RED LED fans[front and back] with the ability of turning the lights off with the button in the front, and ESATA port in the front, a removable front panel which can be washed/dunked in soap water, clear side panel, AMAZING cable routing system, and the space in the back of the motherboard tray allows for easy installation of aftermarket heatsinks!!

Now the cons:
The LED on/off button is cool, but it's integration is a bit questionable... I will soon replace the RED LED fans and the function of the button for something cooler...

The Red LED fans have MOLEX power connectors..which SUCK.

the DVD Drive was hard to get in... but a little push did the trick.

Safeguard seems gimmicky, but someone may need it... somewhere.

and the worst one yet...

Nice case, a bit on the small side, which is useful if space is at a premium.
Looks pretty sharp, and the carrying handle is really useful, even if you are not going to be attending a lot of lan parties.
It also lots of connectivity options on the front panel.

The inside of the case is a bit cramped, so if you have big hands, be prepared for some irritation. because of a large bundle of case wires, putting the CD ROM can be a pain. Also note that the rear case fan also lights up, and is not easy to replace. I wanted to use a Be-cool fan that shows the temperature, but the wiring is pretty well integrated into the case... a bit of a bummer.
The transparent side panel extends forward so you will be able to see your drives if you use the built in HD trays, but note that the sculpted bulges you see on the side of the case arent very deep, so you cant utilize it too much to route power. Also, the rear expansion slots use the plastic clips that you may have seen on previous CM cases. They do an OK job but you may want to put a thumb screw there also.

Overall an OK case.
FYI, I also have the Cooler Master HAF 922 mid tower, I think the 922 is the better choice.... a lot easier to work with, easy to replace fans, easy to route and hide cables.

Like most of you I don't pay much attention to the computer cases that I buy when I integrate the parts for a new computer. I've been doing this for twenty years and my attention is focused on the motherboard, CPU, and drives. This time however, I needed something special in portability mixed with configuration convenience. I didn't want to be bothered with the older lock design that left the box locked when the key finally became lost after the second move.

I found everything I wanted to get in this case. First of all it has a well designed handle which makes for a large improvement in portability. This is a good thing because I have three large drives and a huge fan which raise the weight a great deal. Also, the internal cabling is routed below the motherboard mounting plate allowing for a much improved air flow. The front fan blows directly across the permanently mounted drives and into the power supply insuring a well regulated thermal environment to enhanse long life and stable operation in tight air enclosures. The low placement of the drives and power supply produces a low center of gravity which enhanses the stability of the computer. Case access is through popoff doors secured by a single thumbscrew, easily removed without the need of screwdriver or other tools, Finally, the tyrany of case keys is over.

There is a top back and top of case set of fans which act as highly efficient heat scavengers that keep my i7 motherboard as cool as if it was running in the open. Since I insist in some serious overclocking, this allows me to reach the limits of air cooled performance without having to switch to something drastic such as a water cooled environment. I have pumped my low cost i7 from 2.6 to 3.
