The MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5, the worldâ€™s first mid-sized modular towers with exterior expandability were first announced during Computex 2015 and the design drew quite some excitement.
If you’re a subscriber to my Youtube Channel, you probably have seen my coverage of the MasterCase 5 booth at Computex 2015. Here’s the video if you haven’t watch it.
Cooler Master treated us attendees with a special session, to let us understand better the concept behind MasterCase 5. To put it simple, Cooler Master is going back to its roots and with that comes the tagline “Make It Yours”. More details at the official product page.
So what’s the MasterCase 5 like? Here’s a walk-through, courtesy of Cooler Master.
Mouse-over the image below to see the key difference between the MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5.
To sum it up, the Pro 5 variant gives you additional drive bays, fan, and a radiator bracket at the top.
With the introduction done, let’s have a look at the product.
Starting from the top, the MasterCase 5 comes with a distinct angled front panel.
The MasterCase 5’s top comes with 2 handles and between the handle likes a removable panel that you are able to mount 120mm and 140mm fans.
If someday you wish to upgrade to a closed-loop water cooling system then there’s the Top Cover kit that comes with a mesh panel and a radiator bracket. Feel free to use one without the other, they’re not dependent on one another. For those opting for The MasterCase Pro 5, the Top-cover kit is part of the package.
The front cover is removable and you’re able to add additional fans, up to a total of 3 fans as an additional fan bracket is provided in the accessory kit, that fan bracket is to be used on the 5.25″ drive bays at the top.
The fan mount with adjustable positioning supports both 120mm and 140mm fan.
