Coolermaster ATCS 840 Lightning Review

Introduction
The ATCS 840 constitutes a classic all-aluminum design that builds on the legacy of the original ATCS design. The aluminum construction not only allows for a lighter weight but complements the thermal design seamlessly with three 230mm fans, a dedicated air duct for graphics card cooling and HDD cooling module for superb cooling.

Extra attention to make sure this elegantly designed chassis is easy to install and maintain, which includes: slide-out motherboard tray along with easy CPU cooler-remove slot, tool-free HDD casing, patented finger pressing 5.25" drive to dust filter.

Lastly, it gives users the freedom to choose any components they desire, as it supports the latest standards such as E-ATX and dual PSUs.

When the ATCS 840 was announced, I felt it was the perfect case. Sober and beautiful, and very functional.

I'll get straight into the review for this case, as I have nothing much to say about it, except that it is, b-e-a-utiful!
