Our case came with a nice tinted side panel window. You can also get the case with fan mounts on the side (if you want more airflow).

The top panel has the same perforation like the front panel, and offers support for two 120/140mm fans. Folks at Cooler Master were smart to opt for an off center fan mount, as that helps provide more clearance for mounting fans, or a radiator in the top panel. Users can also install a thin (30mm thick) radiator on the top, sadly the clearance inside the case does not allow for installing fans and a radiator (1.25″/32mm clearance before you might hit the motherboard heat sinks). I see this as a great mod-ability feature as you can add the fans on the outside, and mount a nice grill on the top with a radiator mounted to the inside of the case.
The filter for the front panel is held in place using plastic tabs that snap in place.

With the right panel removed you can now see the removable 120mm fan mount, you can also use it to mount a 240mm radiator. Also, there are plenty of cable tie downs to help with cable routing. The rubber grommets used for covering the cable routing holes are of great quality and don’t feel cheap at all.

The back panel has about 20mm/.75″ of space for cable management. Even though this is enough, I wish they would have provided a little more space to easily route cables.

The case also features a SSD mount in the back of the motherboard tray. It’s nice to see case makers using the space in the back for mounting SSDs, and I give kudos to Cooler Master for including that in this case.

I had no issues with the cable management in the case. I hooked up the rear fan and the front fan to the included fan controller. You could alternatively use the controller to control two fans on a 240mm radiator. Installing a 240mm radiator on the side is very easy, the top fan mounts to the included 120mm fan mount, and holds the 240mm radiator from just the top fan.

Sadly, the large CPU cutout did not help me in any ways. As you can see in the above image, the CPU socket placement on the Asus Maximus V Formula board does not play that well with the CPU cutout.

Here is another shot with the CPU cooler installed. Not a major issue, but I would have loved to not take the board out to install the CPU cooler.
