Now that we’ve had a look at the exterior of this case let’s go over its feature and what you need to be aware of when installing your hardware. I would like to start by saying that mid-tower cases aren’t my ideal choice for building a system, but this case seems to come with all features that I would want if I were to build it inside of a mid-tower.
This case makes installing your optical and hard drives a completely tool-less job. With your hard drives you’ll find that there are two, removable hard drive cages. All you will need to do is to attach the hard drive rails to your drive and slide them into the cage. With your optical drives all you need to do is slide them into the bay at the front and lock them into place. If you want you can use screws on the other side of your optical drives to provide even better security.
In terms of cable management this case really shines. All around the motherboard tray there are lots of holes for routing your cables. There is also a good amount of space between the motherboard tray and the right-side panel. If you take your time routing your cables this case will give you the ability to build a system that will look amazing. There is also a very large cut-out for our CPU. This will make installing an after-market cooler very easy because you won’t need to remove the motherboard.
There is one last thing that I want to mention here. This case does feature a type of filter system for the intake fans. These filters aren’t the best but the fact that Cooler Master took the time to include them at all is awesome. This is something that really needs to be included more often. Their filters basically consist of a kind of a large mesh at the front and a plastic material under the power supply. It isn’t great but it’s a start. I really hope that Cooler Master consider improving on this in the future. It will really help their cases to stand out even more.
