4 Stars By Chris Durkin on 2018-01-22 Awesome case, but it needs work to get it there. Ok so this case has a couple flaws. First the front panel's plastic severely limits it's air flow, so much so that CM has even updated the case with a new mesh front panel.... but jokes on them, because I fixed it myself haha.
Second awesome thing about this case? With a few modifications you can fit a 400mm radiator in the front, for the ultimate custom loop.
It has a vertical GPU mount as well... though there is an issue with this as there are no supports for the GPU which causes it to wobble. I was able to remedy this using my 3D printer. I made a little bracket to support the GPU and PCIe extension (see pics).
This case has SO much potential. If you are not big on case modding however, maybe wait for their updated one, the H500M I think? It will be a little better with the same basic design. They are also making the same exact case (H500P) in all white, with the updated mesh front.
5 Stars By GimmeBackMyDog on 2013-02-19 Five Stars All The Way Upgraded from an Antec 900.
I looked around at ever case possible and tried to save some money. But I eventually realized that this was the case I really wanted so I ended up paying the few extra bucks.
When I got it set up...no regrets. This is an awesome case.
I could have saved 50 bucks getting one of the other cases I was looking at on sale but glad I didn't.
I just love this thing...huge, looks fantastic, big window on the side, excellent cable management.
Cons: No Front E-SATA. I knew that before buying, I still wanted it.
Now, if only the rest of computer were as nice as this case...

4 Stars By Mike Lucero on 2016-07-16 ... - I've always purchased HAF cases and have had great luck in the past Just purchased this for a new rig - I've always purchased HAF cases and have had great luck in the past. The 200mm side panel fan on this one makes a scraping noise unless I pull the panel off and tilt it face down. It's not hitting anything inside the case as I can reproduce the issue with the panel off.
I'll remove the fan and reinstall it and edit this post if I can get this issue to stop.
EDIT: It ended up being the dust screen between the fan and the air intake - there was a bend in the "cloth". I straightened everything up and reinstalled it and the fan and the noise has gone away. CM may want to take a look at this and see if there is a way to make that dust screen a bit less pliable.
5 Stars By Steven R. Roth on 2015-02-17 Great case. Good Job, Cooler Master. This is a much nicer case than its price point would lead you to believe. Other reviewers have covered its strong and weak points well, so I'm not going to repeat them. I'll add only my observations that I don't recall being mentioned previously...
There's a very nice variety of hardware included. Not just ordinary screws, but painted/plated black to blend with the case. Very classy. In the hardware bag you'll find standoffs that screw into the motherboard mounting plate. Be *careful* with these or you'll strip the threads out of the sheet steel. Try to remember how tight you make them because when you screw in the motherboard, you'll want to make those not quite as tight. You don't need to make any of those especially tight anyway, fortunately. There are NO sharp edges anywhere.
Mounts for storage are all very well thought out, especially for the 2.5" drives.
You can mount the power supply either "right" side up, or upside down without any interference or mods. You'll need to consider this decision carefully, especially with a fanless supply. One nice touch is an easily removable filter on the bottom of the case where typical PSUs have their intake fan.
There's enough room to hide the most obnoxious of the power supply leads. Not a heck of a lot more though. If you have a typical non-modular PSU, you might be able to hide some of the unused leads.
Removing the front mesh bezel is tricky since it's held in with barbed posts. If you include one of those 8-armed Buddhas among your besties, you'll have an advantage here. You have to remove the bezel to remove the front fan. Since I'm equipped with only the factory base model arm complement, I gave up and just left the fan unplugged. There is a LOT of ventilation in the case in any event.
The USB3 connector "clicks" into place. This has been a chronic problem with many cases and devices where this connector has no positive retention and often manages to come loose. That should not be a problem here. The leads for the front panel are very long. A lot longer than necessary in such a small case, unless they're expecting you to run them behind the motherboard. That seemed neither convenient nor necessary to me.
Overall -- Highly Recommended for builders of all skill levels.
5 Stars By Dana B. on 2015-08-20 OMG it's Huge When UPS delivers this case your first response will be that the box is huge !! OMG. The box is huge as is the case!
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.
5 Stars By Me the enthusiast on 2017-05-24 I'd marry her but you know... You can rotate the drive cages in this and mount 2 120m fans to them. I reversed my cages so the fans were close to my video card. I love that feature. You can modify the X-Dock so that it accepts a trayless CD drive. One of the drive bay covers has a perforated grill to punch out a 3 1/2 inch hole if your interested. You can remove the drive cages and fit a 360m radiator in the front. You can put 240m/280m radiator in the top and or a 240m/280m radiator on the bottom. I wish there was more places to mount the giant 220m fan at the top because if you stick a rad up there, you can no longer use the giant fan. *Because of the way the side panel is designed on the back side, you have tons of room for cables management. *My tower failed to come with the plastic drive trays for the drive cages. There is a removable 4 tray SSD cage inside though. *The big 220m fan does not light up. *You can use the LED/fan controller separately to control other light sources if you plug them in to it. *It has a drawer that slides out the front so you can stash your stuff. Screws and Cds etc. Its behind that bottom cover in the front with the logo on it. *It has screen filters everywhere! Even the drive bay covers have screens on them. *This case is solid. It comes a part easily and puts back together just as easy. *You can mount 2 140m fans at the top. *There is enough room for a push configuration on a radiator up top inside. you can however mount another 120m or 140m under the plastic grill on the top outside of the case. *Because of the big rubber handle, you can only get a way with a 3 fan push pull on top. *There is a odd slot in the back with little holes in its cover. It looks like a vertical com port. you can run your mouse/keyboard and other cables through that to lock them to you case. You know.. if your at a lan party and need a way to lock down your stuff to the case.
5 Stars By Fattdogs on 2018-01-18 Great capable/quiet case Worked and looked great... Until I got the wise idea to try to cut out and install a side window panel on it. Other then that this case is great at keeping your PC just a little bit quieter. I love that the USB ports are separate from the swivel door, my old case they where behind it so you needed to open the door to use them. And the integrated SD is also handy for those bizarre occasions when you need it. Finally the easily removable front filter is great when trying to install a 240mm radiator or just when you want to clean it on the occasion. (I put a deepcool captain 240mm in it).
5 Stars By Robin T. Wernick on 2015-04-06 Great case for anything an ITX motherboard can drive If you are looking for the most extensive case support for an ITEX form factor motherboard, then this case may be it. It has a shelf for a DVD drive and a solid encasement for an ATX power supply. The ITX power supply cases are slimmer and more elegant, but try getting the 20A of 12 volt power needed to run a GPU card and you will find that they only deliver 14A at the most.
There is room to mount at least two internal SATA hard drives and the package contains mounting hardware for them. Two fans are included. A standard fan covers most of the front intake area and a miniature fan is bolted into the rear section.
The 130 case is long enough to support a standard sized GPU card which the modern ITX motherboards now can drive. The previous versions 120 and 110 are too short to contain one longer than a GTX-150.
The case is well built and with a black anodized sheen that gives it an elegant look. The only thing that it may lack is a carrying handle.
5 Stars By Wileycoyote1 on 2017-12-07 ultimate lux case -built like a tank -easy to access This is a lux case --no question about it. A tank that's easy to access-easier to build on. Nice setup for nearly anything. Great airflow --6 fans and cooling on CPU and GPU. Im rebuilding it right now. New CPU-GPU -32 gigs ram and 500 Gig SSD --4 T networked HDD. Im a photographer and it does all of my digital darkroom work nicely but will do it faster--less crashy with the new hardware. I occasionally use it to record guitar tracks.Has all of the room I need for photo work and recording. A cool mix and not simple to do.
Looking for the max--look no further.
5 Stars By Donna W. on 2016-09-09 This case is beautiful. It has lots of space for everything-you might ... This case is beautiful. It has lots of space for everything-you might have to move or remove some of the pre-installed cages but it will fit a gaming system fine. I have a 1070x gaming graphics card, a huge CPU heatsync, and all the other parts for a gaming rig and it all fits nicely and it has room for making it all neat inside. Wonderful case, silent fans come with it and it has room for more-not that it needs it. I recommend this for a gaming system.
