    Pros: BIG case. Looks awesome. Some people have had problems with shorting on the fire wire button. My case came with a piece of heavy plastic separating the circuit board from the wires.
    Cons: None
    I think I can hide under it in case of bad weather.
    May 4, 2011 Valenz says:
    Pros: Biggest Pro is the cooling/air flow. This case is amazing it dropped my temps over 10 degrees from the start. The cable management is insane , so many options to route cables. I also like the rugged design and the fact that you place a couple of coolers all of the case,
    Cons: Nothing big but I wish the other 3 fans would have came with LeDs .
    I had a CM storm scout and with my two nvidia 570 hd's the temps inside were getting a little crazy. My cards would hit over 70 degrees Celsius at 85% fan speed and with this case the temps are at 65 degrees at 60% fan speed. That's an amazing difference well worth the price of this case. This is my second CM case and after purchasing this one I will continue to support them.

    Pros: This is one of the best cases that i have came to purchase. Plenty of room for expansion and plenty of room for crossfire or sli.
    Cons: Motherboard acess on back of panel is rather small for case. Can be difficult to put on after market cooler.
    Great Case plenty of room and plenty of slots for future expansion

    April 28, 2011 Obsolete says:
    Pros: This is a great case with lots of options for cooling. The bracket to hold your video cards is a nice touch (You can even install an extra 80mm fan on it). The fans that come with the case are as quite as can be.. well kind of
    Cons: The side panel fan was rubbing up aginst the mesh filter, making quite a racket before I removed it.
    This case is hugh and has a fair bit of weight to it. Would have been nice to have had a multicolor LED fan instead of just red.
    April 27, 2011 Heero says:
    Pros: Good Case had no problems getting set up. Fans are quite. love the removable HDD slots in the front
    Cons: side fan cables can get in the way when closing. because of the power supply cover they provide.
    Overall it is a good case.

    Pros: Large, has room for any motherboard and vid cards
    Cons: The cut out for the back plate is off center for some motherboards, so be careful or you have to remove the board to install a after market cooler

    Pros: Huge. Tons of room for tons of stuff. Easy cable managment, great cooling.
    Cons: Huge. I don't care but be sure to check the measurements, this thing is a beast. The front IO wanting to route the usb3 cables out the back and plug in to the rear is a stupid design feature. I think gigabyte makes a mobo adapter for it. Doesn't come with all available fans, doesn't mention that the recommended fan for the gpu shroud is 150cfm. (my 133cfm works fine with my 3 gtx 580's.) The rear mobo access panel isn't even close to big enough/in the right place.

    Pros: Full tower, extremely quiet air cooled chasis. Even with the 4 fans I can barely hear this thing run or even power on. The cable management system is great and helps with the cooling air flow. Fits all motherboards with ease, even an extended ATX, and video cards. I have one setup with a Gigabyte Radeon HD 6950, at 230mm, fits with ease.
    Cons: None.

    Pros: PLENTY of room.
    An obvious high level of care went into the planning and construction of this case.
    Cons: It doesn't give me supper strength?
    PLENTY of room.
    An obvious high level of care went into the planning and construction of this case. It doesn't give me supper strength? First computer I have built so my review is someone limited in overall scope, and after using this case as my first I don't foresee my scope ever getting any broader. I Love this case!

    Pros: Excellent airflow, quiet, looks good inside and out.
    Cons: Wasn't free.
    Excellent airflow, quiet, looks good inside and out. Wasn't free. I spent a lot of time researching a case and I kept coming back to the Cooler Master cases. I decided on the full tower because I have the Sapphire 6950 which is a giant card and I also have 8 hard drives. Lots of space for components and lots of airflow. I was surprised how quiet it was.
    April 2, 2011 The Truth says:
    Pros: Lots of room. Looks great and needs no tools.
    Cons: It's not the best case and a little expensive compared to other cases. Some of the optional hardware is useless. If you have the same components that Cooler Master uses. Otherwise, the extra hardware is just useless paperweights.

You won't be disappointed.

    If you hate working in small spaces and love to manage your wires carefully this case is for you.
    March 18, 2011 Quintious says:
    Pros: Case is HUGE. Comes with a boatload of accessories. The motherboard spacer assisting socket is ingenious. It's well built, has 2 hot swap bays up front, gives you a baby adapter for SSD's on the side if you want, has the space to hold the largest of video cards, provides great airflow. The cable management system is absolutely amazing. Nice array of IO options up front. This baby has tons of expansion bays, and the toolless HDD and 5.25 bays are spectacular.
    Cons: This case isn't without flaws, some of which are really annoying. The biggest one is the cutout to access the rear of the motherboard after its installed. There's a window there, but the size and position of the window is as such to where you can't fully access the area around the CPU. This proved to be a real annoyance for me, since I built out a new machine and went to put my Corsair H70 cooler on the CPU, only to find I had to take the whole thing apart because the window for the rear of the board didn't give me enough access to get the rear bracket ratcheted in.
    The 2 frontside USB 3.0 inputs don't wire into the motherboard proper. You have to run them out the back of the case and into USB ports in the board. When using a large video card like my HD 6950, you have to take the GPU reflector off, because the card won't fit otherwise. It states you can install a 2nd fan up top, but you can't put a fan up there and run the wires from the front IO panel. It's either/or.

    Pros: mostly all lots of space,amazing cable management, awesome airflow and support, Locking mechanism for front bays and it has wheels
    Cons: then fan that's on the side has a deflector or what ever you want to call it to move air to where ever yo u chose well if you put mount the video card supporter the cases will not close and on the front of the case the usb where cheep and one broke off 2 weeks after i got it then the other one a week later they still work but the part that's supoes to hold them the little plastic came right off but i stll love the cases

    Pros: This case is the best would recommended it to anyone. there is enough room for 2nd 200mm fan on top have 2 install on my have 2 red on top.there is enough room behind MainBoard for all wiring front HotWire bays work fine. The man Brewskie doesn't no what he is talking a bout.
    Cons: only one baby tray and dust filters install in the case easy to remove don't like dust filters.

    Pros: My wife thinks it's ugly! This is actually good since she won't want to use it!!!:)
    Ginormous! Good cable routing.
    Cons: USB 3.0 extensions need to be changed to actually fit a motherboard internal port, not the external usb 3.0 ports.
    Got 2 in a row that were opened previously and had motherboard standoffs installed already in a few spots. TO me, this is an "open box" not "new". I

    Pros: Best case I've ever owned, but I used to use cheap $40 cases.
    I went to clean out the inside with a can of spray air and....there was no dust inside because of the great ventilation.
    Fan in the front helps keep all my hdd's cool
    Front panel that slides shut to keep fingers from turning off your computer.
    Makes my Noctua NH-D14 seem smaller than it really is.
    Wheels!
    Cons: A little bigger than I thought, but it still fits in its spot.

    Pros: * Amazing Case
    * Great airflow (especially with cooler master 200mm additional fan)
    * Keeps my 4.6Ghz I7 Sandy Bridge at 80F at Idle and 145F under full load! AMAZING!
    Cons: My only con is the case does not include the 4 screws needed to install the optional 200mm fan and the screws that come with the optional fan are not compatible with this case. So I had to unscrew one screw from the top 200mm fan included with the case and pick up 4 from the local hardware store.

    Actually quite a good value despite the high price tag.
    The thing looks dam cool.
    Cons: Fan situation is slightly odd regarding the connectors.

    Documentation is not as detailed as I would like considering the extensive feature-set.

    Pros: This thing is big. I have it on the side of my desk and it towers over me! Top quality throughout. There is not a cheap looking part on it. Quite customizable as I was able to install two extra fans, one on the front where there are empty bays, and one on the top. It is loaded with 5 drives now, and with all the parts installed is almost unliftable. Love it!
    Cons: It would have been better to have the second fan installed on the top and charged more for the case.

    Cons: Wish the case came with a 5.25 to 3.5 converter... Don't like the USB3 header, its not the new case standard or whatever they are calling it, these are made to run out the back of the case and plug into your rear MB ports.... I hope someone make a cable that will be terminated with the new MB header standard....

    Pros: BIG! ROOMY! Great air flow, great space for cable management. (Don't have a modular PSU but with this case it doesn't matter!) Pleasing just to look at! Some screws are tight or hard to get to if you have bigger hands, but you will most likely have a Phillips screwdriver already to loosen/reach, other that that it really doesn't require tools
    Cons: I don't have the full length (12+ inch) graphic cards but even on my smaller cards (8800 gts x 2) the graphic card brace fits fine but the side panel fan will have to be removed, unless I did something wrong.
    No front slot for floppy/media card readers (3.5in) but easily solved with a 3.5-inch to 5.25-inch Mounting Frame.

    Pros: The case is really well made, feels sturdy. The amount of fans should keep whatever you have nice and cool. It also has great features such as USB 3.0 in the front and removable SATA drives.
    Cons: If you have a graphics card which has its PCI-E power connectors on the top the internal air flow thing will get in the way.
    I don't know whois fault this is but I could not screw my graphics card into the case, the holes on the card and case just didn't line up. Luckily it comes with the graphics card support thing so I just used that.
    Because I used the graphics card support I couldn't use the extra air duct on the fan attached to the side of the case.
    The case is really well made, feels sturdy. The amount of fans should keep whatever you have nice and cool. It also has great features such as USB 3.0 in the front and removable SATA drives. If you have a graphics card which has its PCI-E power connectors on the top the internal air flow thing will get in the way.

    Because I used the graphics card support I couldn't use the extra air duct on the fan attached to the side of the case. Since the power supply is at the bottom it would have been nice to poke holes at the bottom and top of the back plate so I just run motherboard power and switches through.

    Pros: Slick just plain Slick! Its "huge!" Air Flow once you populate the rest of the fan locations .... outstanding. Easily home to 11 disks, and a burner...although I don't have 11 disks. However I am using 3 disk Raid set, 2 disk raid set, and a Velociraptor leaving me boocoo room. Integrated 2 disk back-plane, Great cable management, vented slot covers, wheels, good bottom ventilation for power-supply. Just an impressive case overall.
    Cons: Nothing worthy of costing this case an egg. Some may balk at the $. Its a shame cooler master has some cheap stuff out there muddying the waters around an abundance of outstanding products that I really like.

    Pros: First this is a nice case. I bought it for my watercooling setup and it easily fits a 320 rad at the top with clearance for a push/pull fan system.
    Cable management is easy though the back side is getting a bit crowed with how much cables I have back there, but the insides as a result look classy and relatively cable free.
    There is a hole in the back plane(mother board mounting area) that allows you to place a backplate for your cpu without taking your motherboard out, though with the rampage 3 extreme it was slightly off and I had to take it out anyway it is still a wonderful feature.
    Though I have replaced most of the fans in the case I would say that air flow is good through the system, it allows for even decent air cooling, I know one other person who bought close to my system but left it on air and are still happy.
    Cons: My only complaint is that the bottem drive box is not easily removed, or I could not figure it out, so that my watercooling pump is now sitting on my power supply rather then in the empty space there, while this is not really a problem and has been running fine now with watercooling for a few months now it is not ideal.
    Though some are saying the wheels are a little cheap and break off a easily I have not had any problems and move my case around a fair amount due to the amount of upgrades I do to my system, though maybe Im just lucky.

    Pros: Cable management is never something I worried about too much, and when I got this case I realized why: cable management is impossible with any other case! There is so much room behind the left side panel. You can stuff it full of cables and still be able to fit the door on, and there are plenty of grommets and slots to bind down cables with ties. With all my cables hidden, I am left with a visually pleasing case that get's excellent airflow.
    All the big fans in this case allow you to move a lot of air with little noise. The cooling in this case is just awesome, and all the intakes have dust covers, even some of the exhaust ones do too; all but the rear.
    All of the front bays use a screwless design, so installing drives takes literally seconds. The hot-swap bays in the front are pretty cool. Although most people will never use this, you can pull them out and store spare parts in them.
    I have no regrets about getting this case. I switched from Antec, and will never look back! :
    Cons: It's heavy. Obviously not really a con, because until we live on the moon things are always gonna be heavy. Just thought I'd point it out. (The included wheels help with this problem)
    Another con? There wasn't the option to rate 10 eggs!

    Pros: I have never owned a full ATX case before, so let me start off by saying that this case is absolutely massive. I was apprehensive to purchase such an expensive case, but it was absolutely worth it. Lots of space on the inside for all of my components. I was really impressed with the hard drive bays and the Optical drive bays. Completely tool-less design allows for quick exchange of parts. The Fans on this thing are awesome. If your willing to spend the money on it you will not be sorry.
    Cons: None

    Pros: Has lots of space, Upgrading from a cool master Midsized case to this full size reduced temps by 18 degrees C.
    Case does have a sliding cover for power/reset buttons. Helps with little kids in the house who like to push a button and turn off your system.
    Cons: Ordered New, looks like it was returned before, was missing internal fan, no filter for front fan, Cable management was already run. USB 3.0 Ports in front need you to have 2 on board USB ports or 2 External In rear.
    LED Red light seems to be pointless unless you have friends over and just want to show off. I normally have it turned off whitch is a nice feature being able to turn the LED's Off.
    Make sure that your power supply 20/4 & 8 pin power connects cables are longer then standard lengh as if you cant to run the cables behind the board try with the others they need to be about 3 inches longer.
    You will need a 8 PIN Power connector extension cable for the sabertooth board.

    Pros: 1. Huge case: more than enough rooms for components
    2. Cable management - Deep side panel behind the motherboard making it easy to route cables and close panel
    3. CPU power extension cable included - it's the little things like these that make all the difference. Cooler Master realized that this is a big case and most PSU cables would probably not reach. They thought of the customer and included the appropriate pieces you will need to assemble the case right out of the box.
    3. Airflow is excellent

    Pros: Plenty of space to hide things (water pump, misc cables). built in fans are nearly silent. USB 3.0 hookups for when that becomes mainstream. Cable management is well..ok.. mounting my 240mm radiator inside the case was a breeze, and works well with the top fan for a push-pull system. The expansion slot brackets are pull away and not snap away..so if you misjudge where your PCI-E cards will line up, you can put them back on and not have an empty space there. CM Harddrive brackets are a snap to use and hold the harddrives well in place without needing screws, same goes for the 5.25" locks up top for a DVD drive/etc. All of the included cables are plenty long enough to reach any part of a motherboard, even when going around from behind and wrapping the cable around. I took the box to my moms house so the cat could play with it. She loves it(the cat i mean).
    Cons: When i opened the box several of the front plates were dismantled, and 1 was already broken. luckily it was the one where i would put my DVD drive.
    The motherboard tray seemed to be made of plastic..it would bend back and forth as I'm trying to screwing things into it. And btw, the holes for the motherboard aren't threaded. Luckily they include this tiny bit which goes onto the brass thingies and lets you use a screwdriver to put them in. I found this afterwards.
    All of the airducts inside (GPU, Door duct) don't fit with all the components installed and with a water cooling system. There is no realistic

    Pros: Spacious, great looking case, with plenty of airflow. Easy to work with, for the most part. The fans are nice and quiet if configured that way in your BIOS.
    Cons: If you think that you're going to install the additional (optional) fan in the top of the case, be ready to fight.
    If you want to deploy USB3 ports on the front of the case, you will have to run what is essentially extension cables, provided by Cooler Master with the case, from the front panel to to the rear connectors on the back of your mother board. This is not all Cooler Master's fault. There is no set standard at this time for a USB3 modular connection to the motherboard, so this is the work-around. The issue is that these cables must be carefully routed around the optional 2nd top fan emplacement, if deployed, which is no easy task, and it will laterally stress the connections to the front panel, because there is not enough clearance for the plug-ins and the bending of the cables. Be careful, thoughtful, and patient. It will not be easy unless luck is on your side.
    If you're not installing the optional 2nd top fan, then no worries.

    Pros: Replaced Cooler Master Cosmos, which is a good case, but I love the HAF X even more. Plenty of space for all sizes of mobo's and GPU's. Tons of HD space and DVD drives. Great cable management with grommeted holes for cleanly hiding cables. I love the PSU cover that will let you slide over the end of the PSU hiding cables. Great temps as well.

    Cons: LED switch only works on the front 230mm fan. A big deal is made about the video card bracket to hold cards, but to use it, you have to take off the duct on the door fan. Great ideas, poor implementation. Also, for the price of the case, I would've expected a second fan installed on top. Heck they all should've been red LEDs too!

    Pros: Large. Great looking. A lot of features. Ready for the latest high end parts.
    Cons: I'm a bit deceived cause I bought an eatx motherboard from supermicro. It was the only mother board in the whole world to have 2 features I needed: dual cpu and dual PCIe AND still supposed to fit in this case. HAF X is supposed to accept EATX MB. And I know my MB is not EEATX but a real EATX. (model X8DA3). Physically it could fit it's just that there were 4 holes missong in the case. I was able to drill them by using only a screwdriver, a wood screw and a lot of patience. Luckily I drilled precisely enough to get a good fit for all holes of my mobo! pfiou but it was stressful.
    other negative point: the rack for the hard drive have pins instead of screw which is great, but the pins are fitted in a rubber ring that is too soft and always want to go out of the socket each time i put a drive in those.
    The case is difficult to graps cause there are no simili handle in the front. You have to remove one of the faceplate to graps it.
    documentation is a bit lacking. Just pictures no

    November 3, 2010 Farfie says:
    Pros: First of all, the cooling is absolutely superb. I don't hear any of the fans over the GPU/CPU fan, and I'm seeing at least a 10 celsius drop across all components compared to my old Thermaltake.
    Installation of components was easy to figure out, and you might need a screwdriver for some of the thumbscrews, they can be tight.
    Nice of them to include the option also to turn off the front red LED, with a button next to the power/reset switches on the front of the case.
    Cons: Not really cons, just things that aren't "good" per se, that I've ran into (please don't take this negatively, these don't really demean the case for me; you can see my 5 egg rating):
    Paint scratches easily, so be careful. Was removing some standoffs to switch to a different mobo factor, and just barely dinged the inside of the case with some pliers. Didn't think it would do anything, but to my avail there was a gash. Under the mobo though, so no big deal.
    Also, the slot where the 8 pin CPU power is supposed to come down through the top is a little too thin, I had to bend the walls just a bit to fit mine through. This was true for both the extender supplied with the case, and the 8 pin itself.

    Pros: Easy install drive trays make installing hard drives a breeze! Tool-less slots for CD/DVD drives are also awesome. Overall a great experience in installing components and routing cables. Ability to turn fan LED on and off is sweet!
    Cons: Case shipped without front grills or hot swap drive casings.
    Easy install drive trays make installing hard drives a breeze! Tool-less slots for CD/DVD drives are also awesome. Overall a great experience in installing components and routing cables. Ability to turn fan LED on and off is sweet! Case shipped without front grills or hot swap drive casings. I have contacted Cooler Master and placed a parts request but have not received any response yet (has only been about 3 business days). So still waiting on that. I upgraded to this from an Antec 900 case (which was also great) for the increased airflow and extra space. If not for the missing parts this would have been a perfect experience.

    Pros: The best case ever. Tons of space. Super high airflow. Great looking and super easy to look clean and pretty.
    Cons: The manual is a bit sparse, but at this level, you should know what your getting into.

    Pros: This case is fantastic for an air cooled full tower. It's cable routing is amazing and you'll be able to route all cables behind the motherboard maximizing airflow and increasing visual appeal for you enthusiasts that like a clean case. Power supply mounted on bottom is a must.
    Cons: The top panel pops off rather hard and the instructions leave a lot to be desired.

Power supply mounted on bottom is a must. The top panel pops off rather hard and the instructions leave a lot to be desired. After extensive testing, I've found the 200mm fan on the panel should be replaced with a 200mm Coolermaster high flow fan, move the 200mm up top to the empty slot(You'll need to get some screws from a hardware store as the included ones aren't long enough.) and then put a 120mm fan in the VGA cooler. The GPU support arm impedes airflow even with an 80 mm fan on it.

    Pros: Excellent usage of space. MASSIVE interior, as well as great routing of cables using the rubber grommets. Pulling off the right side of the case as well as using these grommets makes cabling a breeze. The easy-use drive bays are simple, yet forcefully hold your drives and burners in place. The fans move a TON of air as well!
    Cons: The front-right clip to remove the top panel is impossible to get to without removing both sides of the case first, but that is hardly a con; more of a nit-pick to the extreme.

    Pros: -Lots of Room!!!
    -Lots of Airflow
    -Cable management was effortless
    -the right side panel protrudes so there is much more room for cables
    -no tools needed for 5.25" and HDD bays
    -PSU cover sleeve
    Cons: -Cooler Master did not tie their Front panel connectors during shipping. So the cables(usb) scratched up my window's interior pretty bad
    -the psu honeycomb vent on the bottom has no dust filter
    -if only the case was a bit longer so i could install the optional fan duct to cool the video cards 5850/5870/5970 are too long
    -wheels are cheap, the brakes broke first day

    Cons: None other than there are no 3.25" drive bay adapters for my card reader.

    Pros: Cable mgmt features, and overall styling
    Cons: The side fan U-G-L-I-E-S the window! Also, the CPU access hole is about half the size of the Corsair 800D. Hardly a "Corsair Killer."
    If you plan to liquid cool this rig, you'll be disappointed to see that 3-fan radiators are not supported.
    Also, the power supply section is not isolated from the main compartment, allowing power supply heat to radiate to MB components.

    Case is large and works great. Cooling is good and quiet. SEE OTHER THOUGHTS The scratches inside the window are from the USB3 connectors. File a parts request with coolermaster for a new side panel and attach a picture of the scratch. It took about 15 days for me and I recieved an entirely new sidepanel. I did not have to pay shipping or send my old side panel back.

    Cons: MANUAL!!!! It is really bad that they could'nt put a decent manual in .To take the top off be cafull and make sure both sides are off and push in the tabs,could break east if not careful.

    Cons: If I had to say any cons about the case, it would be that the top 200mm isn't included, but they are only 20.00 so not that big of a deal.

    Pros: Large, Silent (at least comapred to my previous Aerocool Extremeengine 3T), matte finish "Black Knight" look, cable hider. GPU fan and support rack, hotswap bays work dazzingly well, liquid cooling potential, cable management done well, Cooler Master's token tooless bays. Lowered my CPU idle temps 1 degree C, and my GPU idle temp by 5-6 degrees C. LOTS of black screws and thumb screws. Wheels. Dust filters!!!!!
    Cons: My front fan LEDs don't work, or the LED button does not work, not sure which. LED button sticks. Both doors are somewhat warped, resulting in less than perfect alignment (thought this seems typical of all cases.) All my cons seem to be isolated events, so still pretty much an AWESOME case.

Just requires the removal of 4 screws to make the adjustment.

    Pros: Awesome case, hands down the best case I have had the pleasure to work with. I had no problems mounting a 120x360mm radiator underneath the top bay, but it would not fit in the gap at the top where the 200 mm fan resides. I would say that you can fit a 280x140mm radiator up there or a 240x120mm radiator but not a 360mm because the area underneath doesn't have room for the nozzles. In my case, the fans on top were big and quiet so I decided to just mount the radiator underneath (hanging down) with 3 x 120mm fans underneath it blowing up, and the top 200mm fan pulling out, which so far has worked great. The tool free drive bays are awesome and work great; the airflow is awesome and the fans are way more quiet than you would expect when you first see how huge they are. The side window is nice although mine was slightly scratched on the inside when it arrived but nothing major. Side panel comes out as a hinge which is nice. Plenty of cable routing room.
    Cons: * Paint seems to chip a little in spots, it seems like the metal matched perfectly before they painted it, so on the hinges you might notice a little bit of wear on the paint over time.
    * Hot swap SATA drive bays in the front were a little on the tight side getting in and out, namely due to the paint issue above.
    * The top area doesn't have enough room for anything bigger than 120x240mm radiator, possibly a 140x280mm (not tested). Mount the radiator underneath instead to save yourself the headache.
    * The second 200mm fan on

If you're planning on running any of the new Fermi cards, I would recommend getting a case from the HAF series. The high airflow drops GPU temps like you wouldn't believe, and that's super important with a high-end GPU. Not to mention, the lower Fermi temps will let you overclock if you want.

    USB 3.0 on the front panel.
    Cons: You have to remove the usb 3.0 cables to close the top completely when you try to use the 2nd 200mm top fan. You still can close the top with cables, but the cables are thick and stay over the top of the 2nd fan and you can't shut it completely.

    Cons: It's kind of pricey, 200 dollars is kind of steep. For 200 dollars you can't give me a 120 mm and 200 mm fan, seriously CM, that's LAME!

    Pros: Remarkable interior. This is what this chassis is all about. Several avenues for cable management. Superb!
    Size of fans and placement makes this 2nd to none for air flow.
    Extended ATX for future upgrades.
    Tried three cpu coolers:
    1 Prolimatech Armageddon
    2 Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
    3 Spire TherMax Eclipse
    All 3 fit with plenty of room to spare even with large fan on side door. Impressive! Looks good through the window.

    Pros: This case is, in fact, an upgraded version of HAF-932 case with some little features that makes it a lot more awesome than its predecessor.
    1. Two fans on the top instead of one in HAF-932
    2. usb 3.0, sweet
    3. 3/4 of its side panel is clear, so I can show my pretty graphic card to my friends and make them jealous.
    4. A graphic card supporter, allowing your graphic card to stay firmly in place. If you know how big graphic card is nowadays, you will understand how much I appreciate this feature.
    Cons: For artistic looking, I just wish the side panel's fan has glowing LED. Heck, it will be a lot nicer.
