    Would like to have some opinions


    I would like to have your thoughts. Bigger than I need at the time but who knows.

    Well it's exactly as described for extreme high end machines and of course massive water cooling loops. Check this amazing build out for beyond ideas !

    Impressive - if you want to spend $350. And you need a lot of room on or under your desk. I like the modularity especially if you want to house a lot of gear.

    Maybe the new Corsair 900D and the tried and true Silverstone Temjin should also be closely considered....but I love cases with handles !

    My three biggest problems with the case are:

    1. The side panels have to open at least 45 before that can be removed. One would need a lot of room for this case, aside from its huge size. Cooler Master should have designed the panels to be removable after having been opened a few degrees; it's doable since I seen it done on other cases.

    2. The thing is seriously HEAVY! It's almost fifty pounds before anything is installed. They should have included forklift slots (and a forklift) for lifting it. It's definitely NOT for LAN parties! At my age, it's just too darned heavy for me.

    3. The dust filter for the PSU slides out to the rear. It's hard to get at there, you will probably find cables from the rear I/O ports getting in the way, and you have to either leave enough room between the case and the wall so you can get the filter out or you will have to pull the case away from the wall every time you need to access the dust filter; remember what I said about the case being heavy? Since Cooler Master designed this case to be as modular as possible, they should have also made the mounting brackets for the PSU filter also modular so one would have the option to reinstall it to allow one to remove the filter from either the right or left side of the case.

    Other than those three things (one of which being fatal for me), I like what they have done with the case. The reviewer's complaint about the thumbscrews securing the PSU mount seemed a bit exaggerated; all one needs is screw driver to install or remove them. How often would one be pulling the PSU, anyways? Also, I didn't understand the reviewer's complaint about the lack of a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 header adapter. Most MOBOs sold today have at least one USB 3.0 header. If one is installing a legacy board with only USB 2.0 headers, inexpensive adapters are easily available online.

    I love the hot swap bays. Pity one of them isn't 2.5". Cooler Master should make that an option.

    Good point LF about filters, nothing bugs me more then having to unplug everything and pull it away just to get to filters to clean. All case fliters should be removable without this hassle.

    If I'm not mistaken, quite a bit of that case is plastic.........I don't know your personal opinion on the matter, but I prefer a minimal amount of plastic.

    I know of one person who owns this case and he can't sing its praises highly enough. For some ideas on the true size of this thing check the pictures here.

    I tried talking the wife into letting me have one for my Haswell build. I failed.

    We have to be able to log in to that site to see the photos.
