Introduction

The cavalier 2 provides good expansion capabilities, comes with a 300 watt PSU, can mount a full size ATX motherboard, and should especially appeal to those interested in building a HTPC.

For the past decade, the mid-tower computer case has been the predominant choice among PC enthusiasts.  However with the growing interest in Home Theater PC’s (HTPC), desk style cases are coming back into favor.  Cooler Master has added several sleek new desktop chassis to their PC enclosure lineup, including the Cavalier 2 we are reviewing today.
