Case has plenty of room for expansion, and has a nice look to it.

The case comes with one fan pre-installed in the front with the option to install 5 more 120mm fans which will keep your computer cool on the warmest of days.

The other reviews covered most of the bases but seeing as there's a shortage of them, I decided to give a little input. First off, this is indeed an excellent purchase. If you're looking for a quality case without the expense, you likely will not do better.

First off, the Technical Details imply the inclusion of a rear AND a front fan, however this is not the case. Additionally, though the extra fans I ordered appear to be identical [R4-L2R-20AC-GP - 1.9k rpm max, 1.7-1.8k sustainable] the included intake fan is significantly slower maxing out at just 1.2k rpm, with 1.0-1.1k being sustainable. Not necessarily an issue, but worth noting.

So long as you aren't expecting a $200 case for $40, you will be thrilled. For the record though, it's build quality and functionality is better than a handful of $80-$100 cases I've bought in the past.

As an unexpected bonus, if you have a Prime Membership, the shipping at checkout may say not covered due to being oversize, however, it still ends up being free! The difference is it will be shipped standard UPS ground as opposed to 2-day (and I still received it in 2 days). *edit 5/27/12 - no longer Prime eligible, but still free.*

[In-case anyone is interested in what I've found to provide the best cooling without spending hardly anything: In order to compress the airflow while reducing dust and noise, I completely blocked off both back ports and the top rear port with a thin piece of plastic cut to size and some double-sided foam tape, mounted one fan for intake on the side which of course provides direct airflow on the HDDs/GPU, and one on top for exhaust. To further reduce dust, you can use a screen for the side fan (at the expense of LED brightness, if applicable). The front already has a screen in place. My .

Everything worked fine when I installed my motherboard in this case. It even comes with a small motherboard speaker so you can hear any beeps on startup.
One caution look at the picture and description carefully. It only comes with one 120mm LED fan in the front. There are holes for a fan in the back of the case but they do not include any extra fans, just the single fan in the front.

This is an awesome case for the money, yes cable management can be a bit tricky but it's still provides excellent air flow possiblities, it's big enough to work around in, tooless design is nice, and one other thing I found to be a plus, something that you normally see in just higher in cases, is that when you take off the right side panel it gives you access to your cpu back plate, which is nice for those that want to install nice aftermarket coolers and don't want to go through the hassel of removing everything and putting it back together.

I built my first PC yesterday with this case. Overall good value but definitely has its pros and cons.

Pros:
- Looks much better than other boring, rectangular $50 cases.
- Side window showcases your interior well. Good for showing off LED fans
- All painted black interior is a welcome sight
- Comes with a 120mm front blue LED fan, 2 front USB + audio header pre-wired
- Tool-less 5.25" (2x) and 3.5" (2x) drive bays are easy to use
- Standoff legend is stamped on the inside for ease of installation for microATX and ATX board locations (*really* helpful for first time builders)
- Accommodates long 8-10" graphics cards with no problem
- Fits 159mm tall CPU coolers like the CM Hyper 212 Plus or Evo easily, despite its small footprint
- At around 10 lbs, it's light and easy to move around.
- With five (two intake, 3 exhaust) 120mm fans installed and a Hyper 212+, my CPU and GPU stay at 28-29C when idle.
- Easy to remove and reinstall the side panels due to the large thumb screws

Cons:
- Rear PCI covers are stamped, so you have to remove them before installing the motherboard, and you cannot reinstall them. If you want to add a PCI card later, you may have to struggle a bit to pop out a stamped cover or remove the motherboard to do so.
- There are two places to run cooling hoses through, but you have to drill them out. I would probably select a different, larger case with rubber grommets for liquid cooling.
- Once you install a power supply and complete your wiring, there's basically no space to install a bottom fan. So it really is a 5-fan case.
- No wire management features whatsoever.

I got the case quickly and it was in great condition. Most of the time you have a door that doesn't like to slide or a bend somewhere that makes it awkward. This case was made very well.

It has to be the best case in it's price range. It's very big and houses some of the larger heatsinks (not all, but lots of them). I have the Hyper 212, also from CoolerMaster, and it fits snuggly. The case also has been painted ALL OVER. Most cheap cases don't paint under the front plastic piece, this case is an anomaly and IS painted. The whole thing looks great in that flat black color. There is plenty of space for lots of 120mm fans, which should keep noise down and keep lots of air flowing. The bottom mounted power supply is a major plus for this case. CoolerMaster even includes large thumb screws for taking the panels off. I swear, it feels like this a case that is twice the price.

The one thing I dislike is the lack of filters. While the top fans (normally for exhaust) have filters, the bottom fans do not. This leads me to believe that this case may be designed a bit differently than I am used to. I would have liked a second filter for the bottom fan (there is one for the PSU exhaust fan). I would have also enjoyed one for the fan on the front of the case, as this is normally an intake fan. I looked over the diagrams provided with the case and it seems straight forward, but the filters make me question that.

Overall, this case is AMAZING. I would recommend this case for just about all computer builds, from the extreme to the cost-effective.
