Having discovered that this company is willfully dishonest in many of your prior reviews (and in at least one interview), I am curious as to why you would continue bothering to review their products. Regardless of quality, it isn't as if it is even remotely appropriate to support this company.

According to Cooler Master's website, the top-panel fan opening was designed for "slim" 120mm x 15mm fans. I guess that means standard 25mm thick fans won't fit...

I also find it interesting that Cooler Master lists the maximum height for CPU coolers as:
w/o 120mm x 25mm side fan: 160mm / 6.3inch
with 120mm x 25mm side fan: 140mm / 5.5inch

That's only a 20mm difference... How is it that 5mm of the 25mm-thick fan suddenly doesn't exist?

Gabriel. Have you ever considered keeping the components of a very basic M-ATX build on hand and actually popping it into the cases you review just to see what it's actually like building with them and how well they actually work before grading them? Even if it's some 10-year old clunker, at least then you can actually see if specifications and performance claims made by the manufacturer are valid.
