Was $35 AR May 2021 but... newegg... fwiw. Patience will probably get you that price again.

I've seen nothing but bad reviews for this case. People have made it work, but the airflow seems to leave a lot to be desired, and despite what the marketing leads you to believe, there's not much you can do with it beyond basic air-cooling. The PSU just sits in the way of doing anything interesting with it.

The retail box shipped from amazon did not have a valid UPC, so Cooler Master rejected my rebate despite me shipping all barcodes i could find from the retail box this case came in.

The only way around this is an mITX motherboard as you can bottom mount the PSU with one.

Ok, if you read this comment you will have seen a good review for this case.

This case is fine for a <$50 case. The airflow sucks with the one included stock fan. Just like the airflow sucked on my Fractal Design Meshify C with the stock fans.

If you bother to add more fans, it will be fine. If you are running a low-power rig, it will be fine. It has room for multiple full sized hard drives, and multiple SSds. It won't work with anything more than a 120mm rad, but it fits a Hyper 212 Evo great.

That being said, it isn't as small as I hoped it would be. But it isn't huge and looks nice for the price.

I have no regrets on spending $40 (plus fans) on this case.

No offense, but SD comments don't really count. All SD comments (including mine) should be considered biased, and should be taken with a grain of salt. If an issue or specific point of praise has a potential buyer curious, they should do their own research and not rely on the comment section to tell them yay or nay.

Cooler Master makes some decent cases, I've purchased/used many over the years. I have also seen various iterations of this case pop up on sale many times. I've never purchased it because of the tales of overwhelmingly bad experiences and bad to "meh" reviews (from various product review sources, not comment sections or Amazon/Newegg reviews) that I encountered when considering it, even when it was cheaper than this.

Again, people should do their own research to see if it will really work for their intended use based on components, performance, etc. Anecdotal praise/criticism doesn't work because, as the old saying goes, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."

*Edited post because I had a sentence all mangled and it didn't make sense.

The mATX variant with bottom-mount PSU bracket is $47 and no rebate.

I agree. this case definitely is not the best when it comes to airflow. but considering the small form factor and low price if someone is building a low profile system this is not bad.

If I accidentally threw away the original packaging with the UPC, is there anything I can do? Or do I just bite the bullet?

Show us your biased opinion of a $40 case that is better. I don't own this case. I am genuinely curious.

i just got this case adding in my full atx PSU and 480x , both with room for air flow.. Micro/Mini towers are always going to be tighter than a Mid Tower or Full Tower, that's always the case.
The Air Flow in mine is great so far.
Great case imo, especially for the price.

I placed an order as well for an ATX motherboard. I was looking for a small form factor case on low price.
