Installation of the motherboard was easy, simply take out the unwanted PCI slot covers and the generic I/O back plate, insert the motherboard I/O back plate, screw in the standoffs according to the included chart, mount the motherboard and screw in the mounting screws. After installing the drives and PCI cards, it’s time to install the PSU.
The PSU is on the bottom of the case and installation is easy. Simply slide it into place and screw in the mounting screws. From here it is a matter of installing the wires and cables, doing cable management which is made easy by the deep back area where the cables will not interfere with the installation of the right side panel, and closing up the case. Drive installation is done either via screws for the 5.25” drives or with the tool-less slides for the 2.5 and 3.5” drives.
Cooler Master has taken many elements of their other HAF cases and improved upon them. The inclusion of a removable rotatable HDD rack is important as you have many options with regards to long video cards and 2.5” drive racks that you wouldn’t have without. The inclusion of two fans is not a negative as this case is designed for someone wanting their own flair and suggestions for cooling in their case. The case has the room inside for six separate fans including two 200mm fans if need be, indeed offering High Air Flow for those that don’t mind spending money on extra fans. This case has a price of $60, making it a viable inexpensive case with some high-end features that has the expansion and room to make it a better case.
