In the PC gaming world, there are about a million choices on what case to buy. Do you buy a store bought PC? Not me. Do you build it? Of course. Do you cut and slave to mod out your own case so that you have something original? Well ... it sounds good until you actually do it. So what do you do? Coolermaster might have the answer.
Coolmaster has a new line of CMX cases that I got to check out up close at this years CES. I have to say that I really was impressed. Look past all of the pretty colors and these are still very solid cases. I have built 100s of PCs in my life, and this case was made for hardcore people like me in mind. At the price point of $899 to 1,300 bucks, what do you get? That is the only issue.
You get a case that is hot as hell to look at, and a few fans to keep the insides cool. That is about it. It will in fact, fit much larger power supplies, and has enough expansion bays and room inside for Jim Sterlings ego, flux capacitor, everything you will ever need to put into a PC. Each case is hand-painted as well as numbered, and some are limited to only 200 made.
Bottom line: If your wallet is heavy and you have a pimp office, and would love to have a Volkswagen Bus humming away in the corner, Coolermaster has everything you ever wanted and then some. If price is no object, I would give it an 11 out of 10.
