    For the price, I'd rather pick the be quiet Base Pro 900.

    It's a really nice case and all, but why do these people keep insisting on closed front sections? We need open mesh fronts for our lovely intake fans!

    You can get rid of front cover in 3 seconds, it's detachable

    What I find funny with that remarks, is that back in the early 2000's, CoolerMaster was first in the market with the whole "all-aluminium premium consumer case with no PSU that costs an arm and a leg". Lian-Li followed suit with the P60 at a lower price which gained a following, but push come to shove, many still saw it as a cheaper alternative to CM, and "you got what you pay for".

    At the beginning, I don't think that there were any CM case that was under £180, with many well over £200.. Later on CM started releasing cheaper offerings perhaps to grow market share, while Lian-Li.. well, to be perfectly honest, I've not really been following their cases in a while, but by the sound of it has tried and succeeded in positioning themselves as a premium brand.

    Perhaps Apple has the right idea in not going cheap

    Haha yes, but then you would be paying over £200 for a case that doesn't look right!

    I'm shocked, they actually made it so people can still use 5 1/4 inch components.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t

    Cooler Master has done it again.
    They have taken something that could have been GOOD and messed up.
    What is wrong with putting in a USB 3.1 type C port, why go backwards to a 3.0 port?
    I had a HAF X which had so much potential, until I came across it's faults, one that really annoyed me was the patheetic CPU access hole (more of a small peep hole than anything else) which was way too small and in the wrong place, just at a time when I started to get into watercooling. Had to keep removing the motherboard to do anything to the CPU cooler (OK by the third time replacing the CPU cooler, I got so frustrated with it that I fixed that by making it bigger myself - on the good side, I rang and wrote to CM telling them that they had messed up with this and what I was doing and I still maintained warranty after the mod).
    What gets me is these are problems that they solely have created and have obvious, easy solutions which are totally missed by their developement department.
