Conclusion:

Well, after what seemed like a long review, we're finally at the conclusion. What a case we have here today! CoolerMaster not only took the performance crown, but even took my breath away with awesome features like an all-black interior, full tool-less drive and expansion installation and three 200mm fans. What is not to like about this case? It even fits a whole Thor's Hammer heatsink and 'push-pull' fans without having to remove the top 200mm fan. It even sports some other nice features that are now being included on most new cases, like the ability to remove a heatsink without the trouble of removing the motherboard, which is something else I like to see. There is something for everyone here. You could even have two radiators in a watercooling loop, using the two sets of holes provided in the case, let alone the fact that the top supports a dual 120mm radiator mount. The case even offers up plenty of wire management possibilities and comes with a decent number of zip-ties to hide away those wires. The ability to lock down your high dollar peripherals is an interesting feature, not to mention the fan and lighting controls. Unfortunately, great stuff usually comes at a premium and a quick search on google comes up with a price tag of around $140. Bear in mind that the new version has yet to hit Newegg. However, the bottom line is that you usually get what you pay for. Great looks, innovative features and great cooling performance, are a tough combo to beat.

  • Great performance
  • Fully tool-less
  • Ability to remove a heatsink without removing the motherboard
  • Looks great
  • Three 200mm fans
  • All black inside and out
