This has been a critical look at the Cooler Master ATC-201 and I’ve attempted to point out areas that can be improved upon and others that are pure perfection; there will never be a case that satisfies everyone, but the ATC-201 comes closer than any case I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.

Earlier on I called the ATC-201 the Rolls Royce of computer enclosures and said; it displayed a perfect balance of beauty, functionality and performance. In this study you’ve been able to see for yourself, exactly what I was talking about!!

I saved this front view for last, as I waited for all the black peripherals to arrive. The last item to come in was one of the most important, a Black DigitalDoc5, thanks to my buddy Scot at CPUFX . I didn’t even know he carried them until he posted a picture in the Case& Cooling Forum at (it really pays to visit the forums frequently) I choose the Black route because I liked the contrast!!! Isn’t it pretty???

The Cooler Master ATC-201 doesn’t come cheap, but then who would expect an aluminum case of such high quality to be inexpensive?? Oh well, we can all dream!!

The best price without power supply that I’ve found is $235.00 USD + shipping at ComputerHQ , shop around before you buy, you may find an even better price, but I think Computerhq will be hard to beat!!! Our friends in the UK can find the Cooler Master ATC-201 at ChillBlast for £219.99 + VAT.

My special thanks to, Jason Lo of Cooler Master USA who was responsible for getting this GREAT case into my hands; thanks again Jason!!

The Cooler Master ATC-201 will now take over the role, as the new home of my "Number 1 System". Lucky me!!
