Cooler Master ATC 310 Server Case Review
This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.If your trying to keep up with the Jones’ and price is no object, this is the case for you. While in Japan covering the latest technology for AMDMB, I discovered the ATC-310.
Since 1992, Cooler Master has designed, developed, and manufactured cooling devices for desktop personal computers. Cooler Master is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer, and you will find Cooler Master thermal solutions inside of many tier-1 computers of companies worldwide. CoolerMaster has eight sales offices and three logistic warehouses, located around the world; for which these locations were specifically designed to support OEM’s and customers alike. Last year Cooler Master shipped more than 12 million CPU coolers. Total sales revenues reached US 36 million, which was a 50% increase from the previous year.
Over the last few years, CoolerMaster has been doing an excellent job of creating a name for themselves by designing and manufacturing innovative cases and coolers such as the ATC-210 and the Galileo “Pipe” fan. It is however difficult to position the ATC-310 due to its sheer fragility and extraordinary cost. It would be very unusual to see this enclosure shoved under the receptionist desk as it would be equally extraordinary to see the ATC-310 sitting in a closet running an ERP package.
