CoolerMaster ATC S4000 SX-1 Server Case
review by David, 5 December 2002

Introduction

CoolerMaster, a brand most geeks would associate with uber-expensive aluminium cases. It's true that in most cases, CoolerMaster designed computer casings tend to be more pricey than other aluminium cases from competing companies. On the other hand, it's my personal opinion that CoolerMaster cases also tend to have the more aesthetically pleasing designs, and top notch quality as well.

Today, we're presenting a review of the ATC 4000 case, which happens to be a bigger version of the ATC 400. Not only does this case fit all requirements for a mid tower case, it can also function in a 4U rackmount configuration. To top it all off, it comes with the traditional CoolerMaster quality and impressive looks. Is this case worth your money? Read on to find out.

We'd like to thank the local distributor of CoolerMaster cases, LCTech Sdn Bhd, for lending us this case for review.
