    First thoughts: hideous.
    Second thoughts: better.

    It's starting to grow on me tbh, alright it's not really plain, but it's enough imho, and the cooling looks awesome. I'll wait for the BiT review, then make a final judgement. :thumb:

    Looking quite good imho. :)
    But for 177€ I can probably buy a better looking aluminum case.

    What I don't get is why Cooler Master wasn't able to build a proper rig.
    It looks really messy inside.

    What bar? The images on this site are always too small and not expandable if you're going to point something out zoom in on the image or whatever to get your point across.

    I know what bar(duct) you are speaking of Antec had them in the older P180s horrible solution made way too much noise.

    My apologies - hectic first day back in the office... :blush:

    Check here: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/03/15/cooler_master_shows_concept_case_design/1

    I'm referring to the bar that runs across from the rear I/O to the drive cage. I know a lot of manufacturers have used similar "bars" for "extra support" but this isn't about that load of rubbish, it's more of an air duct than a bar, I guess - I'm in bad habits from times of old :duh:

    Are the things that look like handles actually handles, or will they fall off if you try and lift the system with them?

    I believe that the current cases are handmade, so it's not recommended. But on the retail cases, these should be "handles", afaik.

    Are those bars on the top and bottom fully functional handles, or are they just there for show?

    Now that's just hiddeous.

    I like that they have moved the PSU to the bottom though,
    is there a vent under there so that there is cooler air for the PSU? All cases should place the PSU at the rear base of the case.

    It looks like cable routing will be the toughest part of making that case look good. I cant believe they chose to showcase that with such terrible cable management, if they had spent 3 minutes more on that, added watercooling it would really help make the rig look better.

    Shame that the plastic they have used makes it look so cheap. I know it's £120 but they could have pulled of something a little mory classy...it looks like something from the set of a very bad F Class Sci-Fi movie.

    Ach Coolermaster went wrong when the guys that now form Silverstone left. ATCS cases were great with the understated design and all brushed ali. It just seems to me that now they use their good name to put high prices on lower quality steel/plastic cases.

    Silverstone or Lian-Li is the only way forward at the moment.

    The hard drives looks like there stack sideways at the bottom, which concerns me with regards to keeping them cool due to restricted air flow across them :eyebrow:
