    I don't know how old this case is but i'm guessing it's quite old - I've only just come across it and thought it was nice, just without the musketeer bit!

    Its a steel chassis, anyone know if this is old ie from the ATC era?

    Other than the musketeer it's a nice looking case!

    Ive never seen that one before either.

    Looks fairly recent, or brand new.

    The Musketeer 'thing' was introduced not to long ago so it can't possibly pre-date that. It looks quite nice.

    Looks very nice. Price mark of $75 in US so i would have thought in the £50-60 region here (edit - £42ish). Not a bad case for that price.
    Guess its based on an old design as it has 80mm fans throughout.

    Nice design and hope CM does more in this style.

    *bring back ATC!*

    They could have picked a better case to photograph on the product page, in the second and fourth photo's the 5.25" bays look absolutely aweful (ie: they don't even fit properly). Hopefully thats just a one off because it looks really tacky imo.

    Errr, I dont really like it. Looks like a ATC version but stripped and IMO too plain.

    ATC looked great, this looks, well....not that good IMO. I dont like the littl dial and the buttons at the bottom is annoying for me as I have a PC on the floor.

    Maybe a grill like an ATC one for a 120mm fan at the front and the buttons placed near the top then yeah, nice case :p.

    It very very similar to the ATC 101 case:

    Hmm, interesting, not something I'd buy from Coolermaster though.

    I don't really think CM will be on the way back up until they get rid of all this 'Centurion, Praetorian' classing. Praetorian is just very old design re-vamped - they need new blood. The Centurion is budget line and I don't see a problem with keeping those cases up, they are doing well.

    CM just seem to have a series missing. They have the server stuff covered with the Stacker, they have the budget, some HTPC a little bit of gaming, but wheres that Lian-Li beater line :p ? Scrap the Prae's CM and design a new base chassis that you can flex around a bit. It won't be as easy as the 201 chassis though, this one has to be great.

    P.S - Harib0, a few companies have got ATCs back in stock. Have a look around, a few 101's going. :)

    There are plenty of the old CMs left in the states but shipping kills the prices! and i really want a 100 (never released in the UK)

    I've found plenty of the ATCs on uk websites but all of them are out of date and don't actually have them - no asking for competitors please

    Would be cool to replace the musketeer bit with a res! would be like a little port hole :D

    Yeah put an aqua computer res in place of it, and that would look ace.

    I really like that case, looks like coolermaster are going back to their roots.
