Most people that their computer cases for granted and don't realize that they even have a choice. CoolerMaster has created some very stunning designs that look great and provide Active Thermal Convection (hence the ATC in the product name).
Active Thermal Convection allows the heat to more easily dissipate from the case since one of the fans is on the top of this all aluminum case.
The CoolerMaster ATC-210 features:
Easy motherboard mounting (drawer-style)
Tool-less assembly (no screwdriver needed)
Dual front mounted USB ports
Good internal venting
Fits standard ATX motherboard
Dual exhaust fans (top and back)
What makes this case look like it belongs in an art museum is the hinged acrylic bezel that covers the entire front. This bezel comes in two colors verdant (green tint) and Azure (blue tint).
This case weighs about 14 pounds and the power supply (300 watt, 400 watt or PS2 redundant) adds another 2 pounds. This case is available now (as of March 2002).
