I selected the case for some very specific reasons. I wanted my MB to lie flat, so I did not have to deal with GPU sag. I also wanted some external 5.25" bays, because I have not let go of such things as optical drives.
- Entirely tool-less case. Everything is designed to be installed without having to use a screwdriver.
- Dual-chamber design for concentrating cooling on the areas that need it more (similar to Corsair case designs).
- Solid steel construction. No aluminum on this product, and a minimum of plastic.
- Billed as high air flow ("HAF"), and it seems to be so far.
- Includes two "hot plug" external bays (which I also use in my current machine)
- Only the PSU intake and the front panel has dust filters; sides and top are wide open
- The layout of the lower chamber is kind of cramped. Even with a fully modular PSU, space is a worry directly at the back of the unit where cables connect. The power/SATA cables coming out of the PSU butt right up against the "hot plug" circuit board, and I can see that board perhaps getting damaged by the pressure over time.
Additionally, if you're using a full ATX MB, getting some of the PSU cables to it can also be a bit challenging because the MB will cover some openings that might have made the routing easier. It isn't impossible to achieve, but you have to look for openings to use, and (as I've done myself) you might have to unhook and re-shift some things for a better arrangement.
Nothing is ever perfect -- I've used Antec and Corsair cases lately, and they too have their flaws -- but the CoolerMaster HAV EVO can be something of a breath of fresh air in terms of looks, design and construction. It's good sometimes to take the road less traveled.
1– Remove MoBo tray and then attach the SATA cables to the x-dock. (YOU WON'T add the MoBo tray back til later… just deal! I know, you just gotta get that beast of an X99 board you bought on the tray ... just hold on, it is worth the wait…)
2– Remove the rear left drive cage, install fans ‘down under’ if you want them there.
3– REMOVE the P/S cover. Cable up that modular P/S you bought, and pull the cables you will need through. There is ample space to the right o/t P/S and an anchor point for the Velcro/zip tie for the extra cables you wont need right away.
4– cable up the XDoc for sata power. Unfortunately, you will loose 2 o/t 3 connectors on a typical P/S. Perhaps use an extension maybe?
5 – route and secure the power cables for the 5.25” bay on the left. Likely won’t need it right away, but pull the power cable anyway.
6– route up the power for the back left drive cage, install your drives in the cage, then pull the power. At this point you will need to attach the SATA cables and be prepared to route them topside. Install the drive cage (you did put the back fans in, right???)
7– at this point you should have everything cabled and powered in the lower chamber. Ready for the mobo? Ready? Really? Nope, not yet – pull your power cables for the mobo (both) and the number of VGA cables you will have up the middle between the drive cages or on the right side. Unlikely they will fit on the left side. MUSH!!!!!
8 – install your nine (9) stand offs for that X99 board you bought and the 18 core Xeon you sprung for because you didn’t really need the rent money, add the memory, make sure all is snug in a bug as a rug (or something like that). BEFORE you drop in the tray… put that silver back panel card in, eh? Don’t want to forget that baby!!!!
9 – gently put the tray in, being careful not to dislodge your cabling efforts to date. Get the beverage of your choice, swig a bit, and hit the home stretch.
10 – cable up the fans, add in that pair of 1080’s, give ‘er a once over, and push that enormous black button on the left front outside …
11 - sit back and bask in the glow ... listen to the hum ... feel the breeze...
Pro’s – SUPER easy to get to the mainboard. That ROCKS. Super, super easy to get to that little annoying spot where you plug in the front panel connectors. “narrower” that any case I’ve ever owned, “front to back”, which means I can put these on a 18” wire shelf (like the kind you see in restaurants). P/S is ‘under mobo area’ for cable routing and such. FASTEST ASSEMBLY ever for me to put this together w/ all the parts, CPU cooler, routing cables, etc. SUPER easy to find anchor points to dress it out, as well.
Con’s – SUPER hard to get to the X Dock drive cage IF you have bolted the mainboard down. (easy to fix though!!!) P/S sticks out of the back. A Xeon 10 core w/ a Hyper D92 is much noisier than I expected. My other PC w/ a D92 is super quiet (then again … its not a Xeon 10 core… hmmm….) The rubber grommet screw things on the XDock drive cages snap out super easy.
Top reviews from other countries
The front can accommodate a 280MM radiator no problem especially in the case of the Cooler Master Nepton 280.
The shortness of the case means you get excellent air movement.
The top panel can accommodate a 200MM fan.
The MB tray is removable.
The 2 floor system makes your system look clean.
It has a PSU shroud (sort of)
It fits in my Home theater cabinet
Cooler Master cases are famous for being dust magnets and this one is no different
The 200MM fan port only supports the Mega Flow fans from Cooler Master
This case was released 5 years ago.
The 80MM dual ports should have been configured as a 120MM port
The PSU is bottom mounted(You have to orient it to pull air from the bottom and it has a filter.
The cons can all be turned into positives.
For the dust issue get some magnetic Silverstone 120MM filters for $3.99 right here on Amazon
The 200MM fan issue was solved by using a Mega Flow fan I had in another PC but you can buy them here or at other retailers.
Cases have moved away from 5.25 front bays and I got this so I could put a Blu Ray DVD drive and a Scythe fan controller in the slot. Especially if
you are using a 200MM fan as most of them are 3 pin.
There are some 4 Pin B gears for $8.99 on Amazon that have a range of 500 to 3000 RPM that are tolerable at low speeds.

It can take a ATX PSU which sits above the CPU and is just ok for the newer coolest running new CPUs with normal air fans.
The 5.25" wide CD caddy has wasted space of 1" either side and underneath where excess PSU cables and front case cables reside.
Strong case with middle handle inside. I would recommend assembling your PC on the floor as the PSU needs temporary support when building.
Basic steps for this small case are:-
1. Assemble CPU + Cooler + RAM
2. Insert mobo 4 screws - wire everything up to mobo inc PSU
3. Slide PSU in at side
4. Add GPU (maybe)
5. Tidy cables
6. Add CD
That's it and reverse order to undo.
Went well with ASRock mobo and Ryzen.
As far as the quality is concerned, I have not found any issues.
Would I recommend it? Only if you really need a case that has a lower height than a normal one. If you are like me and just thought it would be cool to have a 'smaller' computer, then no.
Can stick up to a 120mm water cooler or a slimhero 120mm, the cooler height is 54mm but my slimhero was 59mm with HS and fitted easily with about 5mm room to spare, so this probably only counts the visible diameter.
I have water cooling in it, a hard drive on the side, a barely lying SSD inside the case, a ATX Be quiet 700w 80+ silver PSU, and a mini-ITX mobo, a AMD Ryzen AM4 one, Biostar X370GTN Racing REV.5.0 with R3 2200G and a full sized dual fan Sapphire RX 470 NITRO+ 4GB Hynix.
It is hard to put i/o shield on in my case - but everything is functional, came with 4 standoffs, thumbscrews, screws i used for standoffs for my full ATX Crosshair VI Hero ASUS PC in a other, NZXT case.
Still has a optical bay free after all this, so you can either get a 5.25 rack with more SATA SSDs, or get a optical drive, and either leave SSD laying around like i do inside the case (with this little room it's not really going to run away let's be honest) it's a good case, or m/2 drive and optical drive either way.
I had a optical drive - accidentally killed it due to my mobo's cheap sata cable, might add one soon again. The front fan has a filter which can be taken off but got ripped off a bit. Part of that case is plastic that part but most and rest is definitely solid.
I've utilised the USB 2.0 header on my motherboard and put two sockets inside the front panel on the opposite side to the ports to hook up USB devices which don't need speed - the dongle for my Logitech keyboard lives in there. I've also fitted a Microsoft xbox wireless receiver in there with ease. My one annoyance is that the silver of the front panel ports can be seen through the mesh but a tiny bit of foam sorts that out.
It is tight for longer graphics cards if you fit something with a chunky cooler you'll lose the ability to attach hard drives on the side panel. I'd recommend using SSDs top mounted as its good solution. There isn't a lot of room for cable management nor CPU coolers so be aware of that. I'd recommend getting a modular PSU if you don't want to be cutting down the wires / voiding warranty. Water cooling would solve the CPU cooler issues but you can only squeeze a 120mm radiator in it.
The case is good quality plastic and metal construction, it looks the part as a media PC or Steambox.
