Cooler Master was a name brand when it came to PC Cases, their HAF and Cosmos series of cases were brand names to builders. Over the past few years though heavy competition and innovation from newer brands has sort of made Cooler Master an afterthought when it comes to cases. Well they want to change your mind with their brand new MasterCase series, which is made up of the MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5. Cooler Master says this new case series has the “Maker Spirit” inside, meaning that no matter your setup you can “Make it Yours”. Today we will be taking a look at the MasterCase 5, which is the entry-level case in the series currently. This case has everything you will need to build the perfect system like room for water cooling, 4 hard drives, plenty of cable routing holes, and more. Let’s jump in and see what this case is all about!
Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing us with the MasterCase 5 to review.
The MasterCase 5 comes in a very nice and colorful retail box, something many companies have got away from in the past few years. The front shows two different views of the case and lets us know that the case features the FreeForm modular system.
The back of the case has an exploded view of the case and goes into detail on the FreeForm modular system.
Opening the case up inside you will find it nicely protected with large pieces of Styrofoam and plastic covering the case.
