Case: Cooler Master ATCS 840 Black Tower Case

http://www.watercool...roducts_id=1241


Finally found the time to get some shots of one of these, really well built cases, the materials used are total overkill but at least you get your moneys worth. <dance1>

Have always liked classic coolermaster, remember my ATC-210 (Dragon -Fire) RIP.

But this case is ok, but still doesent have that classic look.

Now its ok, wouldnt say No, but not what i was expecting.

Power button on top, you either love it or hate it.

I hate it on top.

most of our pcs are on desk, so leds on top is silly, unless you wanna stand up to use your pc and watch activity leds?

Overall finish is top notch though, nice to see mobo cuts aswell.

Mobo cuts I like, and for me, with all my cases under desk a button on top is really helpfull. I'm going to be getting one of these very soon.

No room for it on desk, small thing and screen is to big. Anyways its facing so that whenever you walk up the stairs you see it so it's ok.

Not sure what to think about it... Kinda like some features and dislike others.

Depends on which features you dislike spoon? We are changing several (top grill/front grill etc) ;-)

Got some more shots whilst stripping it down, more for my reference when putting it back together tbh. :lol:

Check out the fancy ball bearing sliding mobo tray action

This one is off for powder coating once I've finished stripping it whilst I've got another going off for some laser etching.

Yes, otherwise never get it back together.

Any clues on what your doing with it, coating colour etc?

Guys, I don't want to say too much before it's finished. However, all I can say is it's classified, top secret and there may be spies around. :P Oh, yes... R & B Customs are doing the paint job, and what a paint job it will be!!

just want to make a comment here.

Now you all know i love a bit of artwork.

But i never liked the idea of artwork based on a game.

the game looses popularity or gets old, then your stuck with a case with game artwork.

Now no doubt the artwork will be amazing.

But may be better to get artwork that is more unique.

Up to you, just saying.

OCO may be gone, but allows you to start another one, so not so bad really.
