    Cooler Master H500P

    Sigh.. So disappointed in this case. It looks fantastic but then they put cheap plastic on it alongside many poor decision from the very little space behind the back cable cover to the psu shroud needing the 2nd SSD holder to be removed depending on your setup.

    My computer brings all the viruses to the yard, and they're like - get linux fool.

    It has a good layout inside, looks really good, and for the price (overseas anyway) it's actually still really one of the better ones I think. Coming from a Cosmos S I'll probably stick with Cosmos and go C700P though.

    Was also excited for this case but very disappointed with the cheap build quality. You should check out gamersnexus review on it. Its even worse than Hardwarecanucks made it sound

    Biggest problem is how the plastic front cover is shitty plastic and how it restricts airflow. Yes the case has decent airflow but could have been better.

    Rebeltech lists it at R2500, but stock is not avilable.

    I loved my HAF 922 and 932, but right now the Cougar Panzer is more of a HAF than this case.
    My Rig: is good enough to play the games.

    The C700P is such a sexy case but yet again feels rushed and unrefined. CM make cases that look great (outside) but nothing i will pull the trigger on sadly.

    I agree, I was drowning in my sorrows as I watched this because when Dimitri did that review at computex it looked really promising, they budget cuts they went with on this considering it is the HAF series(although not really) was just sad for me, especially the fact that the top panel doesn't even secure onto the frame

    The C700P is literally the most internally modular case Cooler Master has ever made? Even more modular than the MasterCase series. The inside is ultra refined. I saw it at RAGE this year. You can even remove the motherboard tray, invert it, flip the orientation. The build quality is incredible- solid aluminium and steel. So maybe have a look at these cases in person before you comment.
