And The Public Says…

BigGameHunter said: “This case was a major upgrade from the last case I purchased back in 2006. The way the hard drive bays are turned makes cable management a lot easier than it used to be. I also like the amount of places that you can mount fans and a radiator at the top.Everything is well designed with plenty of room for cable management, some of the larger graphics cards, and larger fans. I am thoroughly pleased and believe it was overall a great purchase.”

Cost: $59.99

There’s no question about this case in my mind. Cooler Master performs again and again in every faculty. Hell, I’d even invest in a few Cooler Master fans to go with our darling soldier. The general consensus is you’ll need to install a few more, though the airflow in this one is just superb.

So it’s Cooler Master or bust. Or it’s one of our other best gaming computer cases. Check ’em out.
