CoolerMaster MasterCase Pro3 Review

Introduction

It's fair to say that we're quite keen on the new CoolerMaster MasterCase range of cases here at OC3D, in fact, we've even selected the Mastercase Pro5 as our new CPU cooler test bed.  But what if you're in the market for a bit of MasterCase action but don't necessarily want the large enclosure of the MasterCase5 range?  Well as luck would have it, there's now a MasterCase3, which is built to house the more compact M-ATX sized boards.  As with the other cases in the MasterCase range, the MasterCase3 comes in a "Lite" version, or as we have here, the Pro3 version, to which we've managed to add a tempered glass side panel as one of the modular optional extras.  So is the Pro3 just a scaled down Pro5, and in scaling it down have CoolerMaster lost any of the functionality offered by the MasterCase5 range?  Best we have a look and find out, and what better place to start than with the Tech Specs.
