    A while ago i was stood in a shop, with 220 notes in me pocket, and there was a Cooler Master ATCS 200 and a Lain Li PC60 side by side. Looking at them both together the Cooler Master was worth the extra cash, no questions asked :)

    Having owned the ATCS 200 for a while now, i can safely say, i havent seen a case that comes close to it in looks, and its damn nice to use cos of the thumb screws and the like.

    Coolermasters have the better quality - But Lian Li's have some better features - removeable hard disk racks.

    It seems most people prefer Lian Li's according to all the polls I've seen. Probably because they're much cheaper.

    I can comment on AVGS.... they are budget cases ... hence the price is below £100, CM are in a different leage. Even tho the GM01 cases from AVGS try to copy the symetrical button layout they have their own unique style.

    Shame CM got rid of the front grill0x :( oh well it was a nice touch.

    Hey KNA whats the area at the front like... room for intakes or did i just miss that in the article?

    Damn.. Kna you are one hell of a lucky man to get your hands on that Coolermaster ATC210. What a hell of a sweet case, but I have a couple of questions.

    1. With the plexi door front mount how much clearance do you have if you decide to add in a premade or custom baybus or rheostats baybus. It didn't look like much was available with the door sitting flush.

    2. You mentioned in the article if mounting a top mount window that you don't have enough room? How much space is available from the rear PSU to the top drive bay?

    Ok, well a live drive fits.. *just* and when I say just I mean by maybe a millimetre.

    You'd have to get it right in the bay to trade off looking odd and fitting behind the door, but you can do it.

    Cooelrmasters are not worth the money. Lian Li's are comparable in terms of build quality and features and cost considerably less. Coolermaster's are only slightly better made, but £250 versus £130 for similar cases - yeah right!

    I've owned both and no more Coolermasters for me - WAY overpriced!

    hehe , but have you got a blue lcd inside your case ? :D
    Just finished it , It didnt go where I hoped which was next to the window in the side panel , but in fact it looks much better where it is :)

    No pics as my Mum has the digi cam and they are away :( Pics to come though :)

    And they were the only grills that kustom had in stock :D

    Agreed.. here in Canada the averaged priced Lian Li PC-60 is priced between $270-$300. There are no Canadian distributors for the Coolermaster cases down here but if I were to export one from the U.S from one of our partners I'm looking at $350-$400. I have yet to see anyone offer then down here same rules apply for the new Enermax aluminum cases.
