CoolerMaster MasterCase Maker5 Review


It's fair to say that when we looked at the MasterCase 5 and Pro 5 back in August of 2015 we were more than a little disappointed.  Not because it was a bad case, but because it was marketed as a modular case that then hit the shelves without any of the additional upgrade parts available, or for that matter even known of.  Fast forward 9 months and it looks like if you have one of the original cases you can now customise it in the way that was originally intended.  To help us get a feel for what's on offer we're actually going to look at the range topping Maker 5, and although we'll be looking at this as a stand alone case, it's important to remember that any of the features you see on it, that aren't seen on the earlier case can be upgraded to.

IMO this is the second best case on the market first being Fractal.

At least CoolerMaster is giving people options like the Front Panel which is a good idea wish more companies do it.Quote

do you get the 2 side panels when you buy the case or do you need the bigger one apart?Quote

If only the less were white.

Really like all the nice goodies included. The rad support is quite nice for the size of the case.

That extra 140 fan though Quote
