Cooler Master CMedia 282 Case Review

Conclusion:

The fact that this case can hold full-size ATX boards and full-size graphics cards is a big plus. No more having to compromise on the graphics card or use onboard video for that HTPC project of yours. Take the biggest, gnarliest card, slap it into this case, and still have room for another video card. The case was easy to work with, and the conversion from a tower orientation to desktop orientation took literally five minutes. I was surprised at just how easy the conversion was to complete. The case only comes with one cooling fan, but seems to flow air through the case well enough to keep our components alive. With the addition of a few more fans, this case would be complete, and truly be capable of venting the heat generated by two video cards. The front LED is clear and well lit, without any fuzziness to distract the view. The stealthed drive bay and tool-less mounting of the top optical drive were added bonuses. Whether you are looking for a case that can be a nice addition to your entertainment system, or as just a nice mid-tower for a workstation, this case can do it all.

Pros:

  • Convertible chassis
  • Supports ATX and mATX motherboards
  • Supports full-size graphics cards
  • Front LCD
  • Included remote control
  • Cooling potential with low noise fans
  • Stealthed drive bay
  • Tool-less mounting for the optical drives
 

 

Cons:

  • Only one fan included with the chassis
  • Power supply orientation does not help with case ventilation
