    £55 for a case with 3 fans included is great value, shame that the CPU cooler clearance is a bit on the tight side. 160mm is a few mm tighter than is comfortable, this cooler master heatsink would only have 1.5mm clearance for example

    As gamer cases go this isn't completely hideous. Still, it's not for me.

    Another 942 remake would be better than this ugly junk. Give it 6 HDD bays and make sure it can handle triple slot fan videocards and we are good to go.

    3 fans is a nice touch, however it looks like it is priced. By that I mean 5/10 average, maybe a 6/10.
    Coolermaster (like almost all other companies) didn't want to make something look better or prettier than the much more expensive alternative and designed this box with this is mind. The box looks like they chose a price-point and decided to reuse or make ultra-cheap components. Rather than try to make a top quality bang for buck product for the price point, they have deliberately made it suck relative to the much more expensive alternative and the components reflect this.
