Cooler Master’s new MasterCase MC-series cases offer even more flexibility than before
Cooler Master has announced the launch of its upgraded MasterCase series. First announced back at CES 2018, the new MasterCase MC-series chassis builds on the original series’ FreeForm Modular System and improves on it with additional customization options for greater flexibility.
There are now more choices for adjusting the exterior of the cases and customizing the interior to accommodate different layouts.
The following MasterCase MC-series cases are now available to buy:
- MasterCase MC500 (S$149)
- MasterCase MC500P (S$169)
- MasterCase MC600P (S$199)
All three cases feature a removable partition plate that acts as a divider between the PSU and motherboard for a neater appearance. The M-Port holder, which allows add-ons like a horizontal SSD cage to interface with the case, can also be removed or relocated, giving you more flexibility when it comes to the internal layout.
To further simplify the installation process, the MasterCase MC-series cases use a clip-and-click components panel for easy drive cage adjustment. There are two dedicated pockets – located above the partition plate and behind the motherboard tray – for mounting SSDs as well.
All three chassis also share features like a tinted edge-to-edge tempered glass side panel to show off your hardware in its full glory. The side panels use a drop-proof mechanism as well, which holds them up and prevents them from falling down when you remove them.
The MC500 is the most basic model, and it lacks additional luxuries like the different front panel options that the MC500P has.
The MC600P has the most refined look out of all the cases, with completely flush front panel and discreetly-placed air vents at the corners of the case. It also boasts a soft LED glow effect on the front, and the front panel can be popped up to make room for more cooling options.
There are 17 different lighting modes to choose from, but you can also use a direction connection to your motherboard to sync the chassis lighting with the rest of your system.
