The side of the case, as we noted, has a built in duct for CPU cooling. The effectiveness of this will rather depend on where the CPU socket is on your motherboard - if it's right under here, then great; if not, it's pointless.

I believe its for prescott/lga775(?) certification more than anything...

I just got the 530 about a week ago. Its also pretty easy to remove the floppy drive bay if you don't use it, along with the horrible centurian logo in the front. There are a couply of easily accessible rivets for the floppy drive bay. As for the logo just gently press on the backside of it and pull it off once you can get a grip. Its just held on by some double sided tape.

When I saw the sidebars on the 530 my first thought was "Ah, here's a defence against getting your case accidentally scratched" as it looks like the sidebars protrude out a bit and will hit things first...

Nice review, mrHaz; these cases look like good contenders in the value market.

Agreed. I may even have to pick up one of these puppies! Shame the shipping mitigates any discount newegg is offering. ;)

Interesting that Coolermaster have already updated the 530 with the RC-532.
I'm definity looking at the RC-530 / RC-532 as my next atx case.
