  1. Disappointed in this Cooler Master product. I have decided to keep it, but will think twice on my next purchase if this is a sign of things to come with the Cooler Master HAF product line. Very cheaply made. Screw holes in the sheet metal do not line up very well. Lots of conveniently placed thumb screws, but the misaligned holes and poor threading makes them very difficulty to use. Use of space per cubic foot area is poorly done. Cases with this volume normally sport 6-8+ bays, this one has 4 x 3.5inch HD bays and two CDROM bays. With todays push towards 2.5 inch form factor you would think they would have employed this into there design to utilize the space more efficiently. Power supply buts up extremely close to the two internal 3.5 HD bays. This will make changing out these hard drives a nightmare if they fail. You will have to take the two sides and top off, disconnect all power supply leads , then remove the motherboard tray and finally remove the PSU to access the HD SATA and power connectors. This is a shame as the drives slide into the bays quite easily with the provided clip in rails. Also, with every insertion and removal of screws and trays, the black paint comes off.
