    Sorry what? You have to install the drives before you install the motherboard?

    To me this looks like a complete joke of a design. A mesh front sounded interesting instead of the usual anti-air-flow design that everybody loves, no RGB is a winner too, but a complete fail for practicality.

    And yes, I'd agree, the design is terrible. Keep it simple, with premium looking materials. But I guess I'm a dying breed of computer user who prefers efficient running over what light display I can get my case to do.

    I wish they'd stop messing with these Master boxes and just release a new revision of the 690.

    I have one of those double-wide Corsair jobbies which makes building, cleaning, repairing and so on incredibly easy. I don't move my PC around aside from when I move house so I don't care about the size. It sits on the floor out of the way and when I need to do something, it is genuinely the 5 minute job you think it's gonna be before you realise the Jenga-like deconstruction exercise you need to perform to get to the bits you need to play with.

    My only complaint is it has a giant window in the side and I really don't care to see how dusty it has got in there.

    EDIT: That said, the dust does help cover the silly lights that Creative and Nvidia insisted on adorning their cards with.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterBox MB511

    I would like to see a vertical GPU mount being introduced more often on the cheaper models. Even if you have to go and buy the accessory parts to do so, just having the capability would be soo handy.
    Especially when some graphics cards are weighing close to 1.5kg and having the heatsink/fan assembly taking up 3 PCIe slots (like mine).
    The added couple of dollars required to design this into the case would be well worth it.

    You attach rubber pins to a 2.5" drive which plugs into the rear of the motherboard plate; you don't have to remove the motherboard.
