Best easiest case to work IN I've ever seen.
Looks like half the complaints are about shipping damage and the other half are about something not fitting correctly somewhere.
This isn't a plug and go case and buying something that big you shouldn't expect it to be. 99 cent rac converters and fifty cent packages of screws will solve any 'it doesn't fit there' issues.
I laughed at the reviews complaining about external drive bays, one of the selling features that made the decision to buy it more reasonable. I have three optical drives, bluray, DVD-RW, and a floptical. But some nimrods think nobody has a use for 5.25 bays. How about card readers, fan controllers, audio control decks. Etc!
And! There's more drive bays than you can use in this inside too!
The C2 is spacious, probably it's one fault. There really is a LOT of space but with some hefty fans and partly parted doors I'm running a 9590FX on AIR. And it's STABLE.
No other case I've seen then or now would make that (reasonably) possible! The bottom power supply mount. Included array of fans, easy cable routing; there's nothing to not love about this case. Except maybe the weight. Fully stocked and filled it weighs more than an xt portable! But I'm not moving it so I don't care.
There are not many superlatives to describe this case nor could I justify the price until I got it.. I have had a PC since the early 80s. I build my own computers and have worked in the PC industry. I am a computer nut. I use my computer for work as well.
I'm not water cooling or anything extravagant. I run 3 hard drives, over clock a bit and that's about as wild as I get. I bought this because boys need toys.
You won't be disappointed in the quality. This is the Tank of Cases! I can't think of a weak point .. wait oh yes I can. The plastic wrap that protects the handles is a bear to get off.
The Power On Cable, The Hard Drive LED Cable and Reset Cable connectors are tiny 2pin
cables. The print on the Motherboard next to the connectors was so small I had to get a magnifying glass in order to know where to insert the new cables and even that was a struggle I would suggest you print out the Motherboard Manual or at least know where those cables go before upgrading from an older case.
This is my 4th custom rig assembly and this one in particular is for myself, so I was looking for something special with the case.
Size: It is very big about 10% larger than most full tower cases. Has all the space you need for anything (if it is a PC component, it will most likely fit in there)
Material: Steel for the outside, special plastic for the inside (the plastic material screams noise dampening properties when you touch it, hard to describe)
Purpose: Special rigs. This is probably the case you want if you want to build you new x99 system or a server. You will insult the PC gods if you dont have AT LEAST an I7 core running in there.
Practicality: I wanted a case that I could move around without having to worry on carrying it the wrong way, that is where those big bars come into play. They make the giant mammoth easy enough to carry (though I am still putting it on top of a low trolley since this thing IS heavy). Also, it wont probably fit under your average pc table.
Cooling Support: Though it is most likely based on your Motherboard and chip-set, size wise, this thing can fit any air cooling devise you can think off. Water support is also welcome though there are some flaws that might work against it (see flaws).
Flaws: Aside from the obvious weight (you dont really care about that if you are looking to buy this), is the obvious lack of clear side panels. It is NOT the case for the show off, you can't see inside the case unless you open the side panel. So if you want to show off some cool water cooling set up, you might have to spend another 100+ bucks to buy a custom clear side panel, which are not made by cooler master and don't follow the product's "Curve line" on the side. You might be ok with a hidden beast, but it is really an issue if you have a custom watercool set up since you can't really see the level on your reservoir unless you have one on the docking station in the front of the case (and that is important in case you just need some maintenance or got forbid, spot a leak).
Cooler master had it going with this case making it ideal for custom set ups, but the lack of a transparent side panel is a big draw back from it since with water cooled systems you HAVE to keep your system in check/plain view, and having to spend an extra 100+ dollars to fix the issue with a somewhat plain acrylic flat panel doesnt make this case justice. IF you are getting this case, keep in mind doing regular checks by opening the side panels (if you have water cooling set up); then again you probably already made your decision, it if fine, this is a VERY solid piece of good work even the flaws.
I have been waiting for over a week on a dead fan PCB. The case arrived with a non-working PCB so I opened a ticket and waited and waited with no response. I finally chatted live with someone who pointed me how to request a part. I requested the part and waited over a day for it to be approved and that was only because I had to live chat AGAIN and force the support person to approve it. I asked for expedited shipping because this is an urgent need and the support tech was not helpful telling me it was in the warehouse's hands. I frankly don't believe that a manager could not speak with the warehouse and ensure I would receive the part in 2-3 business days or sooner. I am NOT satisfied with support and will definitely think twice before I buy components from Cooler Master.
