Coolermaster 430


Active Member
Just bought one for a build for my Nephews xmas present.


Cheap decent case (better than the no name stuff from maplin/pc world/high street retailer for the same price)
Space for 5 120mm fans (space for 2 on the top!)
Front & bottom fan filters
Black instead of grey inside
Tool free installation for hard drives & Optical drives
Side window
PSU on the bottom instead of the top. (helps cooling?)
Thumbscrews for side panels.

Dislikes: (niggles really)

A bit tinny for me but I would expect that from a PC case that cost less than 40 notes. I managed to strip 2 of the motherboard standoff threads due to this.
Only 1 120mm fan included. (again to be expected)
Cable management could be better (& it is in Coolermaster's Centurion 5 II case, which I built a PC in about a month ago)
No insulation for hard drive noise.
When you install a large 3rd party cooler into the case with the can blowing to the back you can't install the 2 roof fans.
ATX motherboard install a bit of a tight fit.
