Being one of the most crucial "pardon the pun" components in your computer, good ram is needed for system stability, optimal performance and successful overclocking adventures.

Cooler Master Aluminum mid tower cases is available with many different finish options while sharing similar internal designs. Colors include Champagne, Silver, and Black. Some of these finishes are available as Car Coatings due to their smooth mirror finish. The ATC-111C-BXJ mid tower we are looking at today is simply anodized in a rich black color.
