Great case, easy to install.

The large front mounted fan blows air through the 3.5" drive bay to keep the drives cool.

Its about the same size as my other mid-tower case builds and of equal pricing.

This case is pretty good for the money. Depending on your needs, you may prefer the Antec 300 for about the same money.

Pros:
1. Side cooling holes for cooling mobo and videocard
2. Top cooling vents
3. Bottom-mounted PSU -- PSU can be mounted rightside or upside down.

Cons:
1. HDD cage holds 4 3.5" hdds
2. Need to buy more 3.5" cages to hold more than 4 hdds
3. Lack of extra fan mounting screws.
4. No reset button

Compare Antec 300 vs. CM 590:

Antec is better at handling hdds: 2 hdd cages x 3 hdd ea. = 6 max. CM is 4 max because of only having 1 hdd cage.

CM is better at handling 5.25" DVDs: 9 vs. 3 (Antec).

Both have bottom-mounted PSU, but CM can mount PSU right/upside down.

CM has 2 side vents: Antec only 1 (for videocard).

CM has 2 top vents: Antec 1.

Antec has reset button; CM no.

Bottom-line: Get Antec for system w/ 3-6 hdds and 3 max DVDs. Get CM for system with 4 max hdds. Both are solid values.

UPDATE April 2011 -- dropped it from 4 stars to 3.

Rust. The fan mesh areas are showing rust; Antec 300 is just fine. (This is in humid Hawaii, mind you.)

Fan noise. Case fan perforations block more air than on competing Antec 300. As a result, a 120mm fan on the CM makes much more noise than on the Antec 300.

Paint finish. My Antec 300 is looking much better than CM 590 -- thinking paint job is better on Antec.

Updated Conclusion -- buy the Antec 300, NOT the CM 590. BTW, I prefer the 300 over the 900 and 902, having used all of them.

This is the second 590 and the 6th Cooler Master case that I have purchased in the last year.
Cooler Master makes the best built cases, period.

The 590 is the one and ONLY case to use if you plan to use water cooling.
There are 9 (count them) 5.25" bays in the front of the case (all available form the outside). You use an adapter (included)to install floppy and another included adapter to install HDs.

The Power Supply is at the BOTTOM of the case instead of the top. I will never go back to the supply on top.
Moving the PS down, moves the MB UP.

Because of the 5.25" bays at the bottom, my watercooling pump and reservoir fit at the front bottom of the case.

This case is HUGE!

This is a big case, with a lot of room in front of the motherboard (a few inches on a full size ATX board), which is important now that motherboard manufacturers have all decided it is a great idea to stick hard drive connectors on the front edge of the board. That's why I had to buy a new case in the first place rather than using one of my old cases.

It is pretty well built... the fans are quiet and seem to be decent quality.

The toolless connectors work better than you would think they would by looking at them. I'm happy with them and I am definitely not a fan of the toolless chassis. The removable 3.5" bay is not toolless, but has rubber grommet vibration isolators on all the screw mounting holes, which is a nice touch. The large front mounted fan blows air through the 3.5" drive bay to keep the drives cool.

Plus it looks very good. All in all it is a very nice case, comparable to any $100 case. The only downside is no reset button... but I can live with that.

What finally won me over to the 590 after looking at somany reviews was the attrictive price (75$ shipping handeling and tax included)and the sturdy,roomy design. I wanted a case that could handle two 9800 GTX+ cards in sli and two+ harddrives. It does. Even better, it does this having about 3 inches of clearence between the cards and the hard drives while retaining the front 120mm fan--no moving anything around! Also and very importantly this case can handle alot of air (4x140mm vents + 4x120 vents goes along way). By the way I am not OCing so my cooling needs are not excessive.
The placement of the side (left, front facing you) bottom vent was perfect,letting the cards get their own fresh air. The vent for the PSU could have been alittle bigger but that's ok espically since the placement for the PSU was perfect; it could handle massive amount of cords (I have a Corsair 850TX PSU). That said just make sure you get a PSU with a bottom fan, one with a top fan might not cool as well.
The tooless design really doese work (I know some reviews said it didn't) and so does the rubber sound absorbers for the HD cage. As for the included fans...they are what they are but at least the have both 3 & 4 pin adapters. Height, I don't need a full tower case but I am still running two ROM drives, a fan controller and a media panel and there is space for more stuff (besides what more could you add?)
So bottom line this is a great case for the money. If you don't mind not having a fancy smancy case with all the bells and whistles then here is a one that is pf solid design, spaceous and has the air flow comparible to that of higher priced cases (Coolermaster HAF) Having owened this case for two months I say this is a mid-tower champ!
P.S.: don't let the fact that this case does not include a PSU deter you. Just in case if you don't know the good PSUs are sold seperatly.
