Techware Labs go through the ins and outs on this case:

What is with computers with transparent side-panel windows? Flashing LED lights? A dozen different case fans? What are people thinking? When did a clean, quiet, metal box with an “ON” button and power light become so passé?

The Centurion 590 by Coolermaster might be just what I’ve been looking for. It’s a jet black, rugged looking, utilitarian case with the elegant simplicity that a beret-wearing, Mac-using, latté-sipping elitist like myself would be proud to shove his circuit boards in.

Read the full review at TWL:

The Centurion sports nine 5.25” external drive bays, four of which are usable as 3.5” internal bays. Our test unit came with two 120 MM, 1200 RPM fans, one of them rear-mounted and one of them LED lit on the front. The case also featured a semi-screwless design and, while not supplied, a design that allowed the power supply to be installed on the bottom of the case. At first look the best word that comes to mind for describing the Centurion 590 is “tasteful”.

With all of its style and class, even the most hardcore modders would appreciate the Centurion. Overclockers can rejoice in the pre cut holes with grommets in the rear designed to accommodate a liquid cooling setup. If the very capable fans included with the case aren’t cool enough, you can squeeze another five or six fans onto the top, bottom, sides or rear of the case.
