Cooler Master Gladiator 600 Mid Tower Chassis Review

External Overview

From Cooler Master
“Cooler Master has developed yet another top quality mid tower chassis, Gladiator 600 (RC-600). It has a pure elegant black exterior, exuding an understated but extraordinary mystery that delivers heroic style. The chassis has a fully meshed front panel with a 120mm blue LED fan for excellent airflow. Furthermore, Cooler Master uses a burnished material on the I/O panel, symbolizing the victory belt of a true gladiator.”

The Cooler Master Gladiator 600 is a case that has plenty of airflow built in. The front panel has a total of five 5.25″ bays all composed of mesh to allow airflow to move easily in and out of the case. While most cases have at least one external 3.5″ bay, the Gladiator does not. Most people don’t use Floppy drives anymore and I can’t say that there are a lot of other devices that would use an external 3.5″ bay. Cooler Master has still taken into account the few people that need these bays, so they’ve incorporated a 5.25″ to 3.5″ converter in which you can replace a bay with.

The I/O panel or “victory belt” as Cooler Master likes to call it is located about a third of the way up the front panel. The panel includes your typical power/reset buttons, two USB ports, mic/audio jack and eSATA port, but also includes a smaller button which turns the blue LED on the front 120mm fan on and off.

A larger 140mm fan is found on the top of the case and acts as an exhaust for the case. The plain side panel has room for another two 120mm fans, which aren’t included with the case. They are located closer to the top to cool of your motherboard and components since the power supply is mounted on the bottom, rather than the top.

A back view of the case shows that the power supply is mounted on the bottom of the case. Above it are seven expansion card slots and some extra cooling holes.

Above those are the motherboard I/O slot and 120mm fan grill, which looks like it will support 82mm, 90mm and 120mm fans since there are multiple screw holes. Both side panels are attached to the case with two easy to remove thumbscrews.
