Cooler Master ATCS 840

Wow, what a monster of a case, this case looks beautiful and seems to have nearly all the bells and whistles. I would love to see the high quality reviews that TR does for this bad boy. I know that when TR reviews a case i feel like i know what i am going to get.

Please guys Review the ATCS 840!

I read the review there, and a few others, they all seemed to lack the polish and thoroughness that a TR case review has. I know that i have been postponing a build for a while now with money concerns, and i would like to see the guys here really dismantle this case and put it through the gambit, so i can determine if it really is a case i should consider over the Cosmos 1000 i have been thinking about getting.

This thread is more of a plea to the guys here to do a review of the ATCS 840 because i know that TR does a better all-round job reviewing the cases i like than anyone else.

Slide out motherboard tray? I haven't seen a case with one of those in a while. Too bad there's other features of the case that i don't like. Hopefully they come out with more cases with that tray, they are soooo nice!

I like the CPU access from the back so you don't have to remove the MB from the tray to change the heatsink. I am still holding out hope for a review, I know this case is a little bit pricier than the norm but it looks like the kind of case i could use for many many years and still be just as happy with it.

oh well.

TR, please review the ATCS 840.

This is premium case but it is extremely expensive, bulky, heavy and there is no side window.
