Top Customer Reviews
Case has green tinted plexiglass side, no side vent, has CPU cooler vent, power and reset switches and LEDs on right side, manual is tolerable.
Front case panel removes easily, improved by CM
Front green fan included, didn't expect a front fan.
Front I/O panel has blank for 1394
Drive bays easy to work on (I added FP35B to front I/O panel)
Easily allow 11" video card instalaltion
Case material and quality good
Has both HD audio and AC'97 connectors
Has installed speaker w/ 4 pin connector
Power switch improved design (LEDs for both power and reset)
Mesh allows good ventilation
Cable mangement is good (no cable ties included)
Rear 7 slots managed by single lever mechanism (works well)
Fans were 1500RPM, 50CFM and 25dbA (I replaced mine with Scythe DFS122512L-PWM and CM R4-L2R-20CG-GP quiter and better CFM)
No fan filters.
Contact with CM is difficult and getting response is almost impossible. I RMA'ed for nuts and got dead letter, my calls were answered but no action, "live chat" is impossible and directs you to e-mail.
Recommendation: Great case, nice design, looks good. Hopefully you will not need to communicate with Cooler Master.
The metal of the case, especially the outside panels and even the rear panel, are very, very thin metal that bends easily. This case, while reasonably well built, is nothing like the strength and quality of a CoolerMaster 690, for example. (As reference, I just installed a CM 690 II Advanced Nvidia edition two days before building this system in a NV-334 nVidia Edition case.)
My main complaint is that the front fan is defective - the green LED built into the fan flashes constantly, and not even at a constant rate. It's really annoying, and there is no switch to just turn the LED off. I know that the LED is not supposed to flash, as the 690 II nVidia edition also has a green LED fan in the front, and it does not flash (it also has an on/off switch). I'll have to replace that fan, which is a pain as I just assembled the unit with everything in it. I thought about just swapping the front and rear fans, but due to the side window I'll still be getting the flashing light all the time and will be driven nuts....
Other criticism is that it's very difficult to remove/add hard drives into some of the slots (especially the ones in front of the fan) for some motherboards. For my Intel board, the SATA and even case connectors on the motherboard are right in front of the hard drives, and the hard drives have to be slid back so far to remove from the stack that it's tough to do without removing any cables connected into the motherboard ports in that location.
Again, I think that overall this is a reasonable case for the price. Just don't expect the highest build quality. And hopefully you'll get a non-defective LED fan like I did.
The cooling provided by the original fans is ok but I replaced both with higher flow models and used a fan control module to regulate the speed. I removed the CPU vent attachment since I installed a much better heat pipe CPU coolers vs using the stock retail one. The design of the mesh gril with filter behind it is great for keeping dust and dog hairs out of the system but still provides excellent air flow through the case.
The window area is just right for looking in if you have your case on a desk next to you. I have installed Ballistic Tracer memory modules and the view looking in is great when the lights on the modules are flashing as the memory is being accessed.
