With the bracket in place we get a better idea of how the additional head room is brought about, and before you start spouting about how hideous it looks to have rad bracket exterior to the case, just wait and see what the solution is

Yup, CoolerMaster give you the option of a roof extension to fill the gaping void in the roof between the two carry handles.  The roof panel is of course mesh filtered, although this is not really that necessary for a vent that should always be used as an extract.

We've fitted the additional HDD racks to give you more of an idea as to how much additional storage the Pro 5 has, and the Pro 5 accessory pack offers.

We also though we'd show you the effect of the heavy smoked acrylic panel at the bottom of the side window.  The images below might look the same, but look again and you'll see that the image on the right has a high intensity bulb

Even a high intensity bulb fails to significantly penetrate the smoked panel, meaning that you could use case lighting in the upper section without risking light pollution into the area beneath the false floor.

The problem being even if they add some of the suggestions Gary makes in the review, there are cases out already cheaper than the base case that have them. to me the base case should at least have room for an AIO in the roof considering that's where most people put itQuote

Your conclusion is very difficult to read. It looks like a brick wall of text.
Try and break it down more with paragraphs.Quote

Thanks for the review Gary. When I first saw show pictures of this case, I thought it had possibilities. Sorry to see that the shortcomings have overwhelmed any possible positives the case might have had.

To me it seems like they tried to make a quality product but it fell victim to the "where can we cut a few cents off of the manufacturing cost" demon. I really wish they had just decided to put out a pro/premium product and followed through with that.
