Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Review

A Look Inside
Getting inside the case is quite easy as both side panels use thumbscrews. They are the thumbscrews that stay on the panel, so you don’t have to worry about losing them. Once inside we can see that Cooler Master has gone with a dual-chamber layout.

Starting at the front of the case we have the two 5.25-inch drive bays, which use a simple tool-less locking system. Keep in mind if you don’t want to use these bays you can actually fully remove them from the case.

Moving down we have the single hard drive cage. This hard drive cage features two removable trays which support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives. 3.5-inch hard drive installation will be tool-less, but for 2.5-inch drives you will need to use screws.

This hard drive cage is actually fully removable from the case and on top of that can be positioned anywhere along the Clip-and-Click panel. This long panel, which runs down the front of the case allows you to install or add-on more hard drive cages, fan brackets, water cooling reservoirs, and GPU support brackets.

In addition to this the hard drive cage can be installed in the bottom of the case.

Taking a look at the motherboard tray this case does have support for ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards. There are a total of 9 cable routing holes, 5 of which have rubber inserts installed. You will also notice a very large CPU cutout that will allow you to install an aftermarket CPU cooler without having to remove your motherboard from the case.

On the mid-plate or separator between the top and bottom compartments you will find two 2.5-inch hard drive mounts. These also can be completely removed for easy installation. You can also install them on the backside of the motherboard tray.

Looking into the bottom of the case we can see the power supply mount that is setup to let your power supply sit on a set of rails.

Taking the opposite side panel of the case off we can see how the rest of the case is set up. The thing that really stands out is the middle cabling channel which has three velcro ties to keep all of your cables organized. There are also routing holes on the front of the case to easily route cables from your fans.

If you are wondering how much room is behind the motherboard tray, there is just under an inch between the back of the motherboard tray and the backside of the case. So you should have no trouble routing all of your cables.
