Cooler Master ITower 930

Package

The ITower 930 is not the only medium-sized model in the company’s product range, yet it is distinguishable amongst the other models due to much broader capabilities than those of a classic medium system case.

It comes in Cooler Master’s traditional package with a familiar design:

It’s neat and simple, like the other products of the company.

Exterior Design and Functionality

The system case can be characterized as having a calm exterior design.

The only place the designer has had a hand in is the aluminum front panel.

The familiar wave of Cooler Master cases has been complemented with an air-inlet piece. Near this inlet there are front interfaces, Power and Reset buttons, and system indicators.

That’s good, but as we wrote above, four USB ports are somewhat too many, especially placed like that. They are too close to each other, making it impossible to attach more than 2 large devices at once. Moreover, a large USB flash drive, when plugged into a USB port, won’t allow you to close the decorative door. As for ordinary USB connectors, it is the problem of aesthetics. When the USB ports are placed like they are in this system case, the garland of hanging cables won’t look pretty at all. And there’ll be problems with your access to the 5.25” bays.

The biggest surprise is waiting for you behind the door:

What you see in the center is nothing else but a four-HDD cage with a quick replacement capability.

Unfortunately, it is not the hot-swap capability as in server systems, but people who often attach HDDs are going to appreciate this. You don’t have to get into the case for that and you can easily take a HDD with important information out of the PC. The rails with a lock differ from what you can see in servers.
