Cooler Master's Casings

Cooler Master's Casings

Cooler Master's Wave Master makes a return with the new Wave Master II 631 that gives you even more flexible curves. The casing adopts a screw-less assembly design and it features large 120mm fans in the front and rear panels. There are also holes at the rear for water-cooling tubes in and out of the casing. The Wave Master II 631 comes with four 5.25-inch external bays, two 3.5-inch external bays and four 3.5-inch internal bays.

Yet another solid aluminum casing design from Cooler Master is the RC-632. It comes with large intake and exhaust 120mm fans in the front and back. The casing features a center-splitting front panel door that makes it uniquely different from other casings. It comes with four 5.25-inch external bays, two 3.5-inch external bays and four 3.5-inch internal bays.

Here's another view of the RC-632 with the front panel doors opened.

The RC-930 is a large casing capable of housing large server motherboards up to 12-inch x 10.5-inch. Designed for the entry-level server market, this heavy 16kg chassis features four hot swappable SATA drive bays. Besides that, it also comes with six external 5.25-inch bays for even more storage expansion.

Cooler Master's external HDD enclosure known as the X Craft 350 comes with several interface options. Above is the chassis with a WD Raptor hard disk drive connected using eSATA. This particular model also features a USB 2.0 port for systems without the newer eSATA interfaces.

The more common enclosures would be this particular model which connects an IDE hard disk drive to a USB 2.0 port. A combo enclosure with both IEEE 1394a and USB 2.0 interfaces is also available.
