    I dont own this Cooler Master case so I wont be apart of the club, I just wanted to add this CM rig to it. I built this for my friend Scott who was in need of an upgrade asap. He gave my his budget and I recommended him most of the parts. He doesn't know much about pc's and surprisingly he pick out the CM Sniper mid-tower case, which I think was an excellent choice.:toast:

    Anyway here are the specs:

    Intel i7 920 cpu
    Evga X58 board
    Evga GTX465 1gb
    Corsair 750HX psu
    Corsair 6gb XMS3
    WD 1TB Black hdd
    Samsung cd/dvd

    The overall experience building the Sniper was great, I removed the hdd cage to allow for better airflow from the front 200mm fan and mounted the hdd in the bottom 5.25" drive bay, also added a bottom intake fan. The only mistake Scott made was the optical drive, he bought an IDE instead of sata:slap: and the usb/audio/1394 cable are white which is a bit of an eye sore IMO and would look sooo much better if they were black. As for the stock cpu cooler...well he wont be overclocking so we just left it at that.

    Enjoy!

    Case came yesterday, since my motherboard is still on its way to NewEgg for RMA, this is all I could do.

    I really liked the white fans on the rad in under the lighting, so I grabbed another AC F12 fan (This time an AC F12 Pro) for the rear exhaust.

    Gonna wait until next month before I grab a new waterblock for my i7. Probably an EK Supreme HF Copper.

    Can I join this club even though my ATCS 840 is currently empty and sitting in it's box, all lonely and unloved, underneath my desk?

    I've got to say, it's the best case I've owned, by a stretch, but was simply too big for my current situation.

    Will eventually sell it when I get around to pulling it out an photographing it. Will then have to leave this club. :unhappyface:

    I like the idea of the Former Cooler Master case owners list Rad_Ed, still giving props to those who have moved on from CM.:)

    Also I built a Cosmo.S case for my good friend awhile back and would love to add some pics to this awesome club......brb
