Conclusions

Do we like it?

Having played around with the 830 for a while there is little we can find to fault it, Cooler Master has lived up to its reputation and created another well-designed, functional and stylish computer case. There is a plethora of connectivity for those of you who hate reaching around the back to plug in your peripherals, but we can't help thinking that a card reader wouldn't go amiss in such an expensive case.

Value: Speaking of value, you have to ask yourself if £180 is really too much money for a PC Case without even a PSU. The market this case is aimed at though, is fully aware that to have longevity, rattle free cooling, flexibility and style you have to pay a premium. My first quality aluminium case cost me £120 5 years ago and the hardware inside has changed at least 5 times, so if you consider that and the fact that this case is to an extent future-proof £180 doesn't seem so bad.
