Cooler Master unveils a variety of cases this year that range across style, function, and technology. New case products not only expand on Cooler Master’s aesthetic design, but also show how case technology has evolved over time. The COSMOS, H-Series, K-Series, and others have been expanded with additional cases, while the MasterCase SL600M marks the start of a brand new lineup. The concepts revealed at Computex exhibit daring new design elements while still staying true to Cooler Master’s creative DNA.
The COSMOS C700M is Cooler Master’s flagship in the Maker segment. The new design fuses bold shapes to a soft, continuous surface. The COSMOS C700M’s impactful use of addressable RGB lighting extend upon the series’ DNA. New tech will be woven into the frame and functionality of the COSMOS C700M, to be disclosed at a later time. Although specifications and details cannot be confirmed yet, sheer versatility in configuration can be expected. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
The MasterCase SL600M kicks off the “SL” series in the highest segment. Chimney-based heat regulation is an efficient way to blend together silent technology with gaming performance. Cooling for the vertical layout intakes air on the bottom and exhausts air through the top panel. The use of aluminum was a design choice that enables the MasterCase SL600M to be a sophisticated workstation with the capability of being built for high-performance gaming. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
The MasterCase H500M sits at the highest end of the H-Series, offering the highest amount of features within the series. Options for the front panel, PSU shroud, cable covers, and radiator compatibility allow builders to configure at will. The empowerment of component choice and abundant support ensures that systems will look their best when built inside a MasterCase H500M.
The MasterCase H500 is the straightforward choice in the series with two iconic, 200mm fans. Although this is the lowest-priced case within the lineup, both the transparent front panel and mesh panel are included to offer a choice between aesthetics and maximum airflow. Each of the front panel options compliment the industrial design of the MasterCase H500 in their own method. To enable the case to be moved more easily, a subtle handle has been placed on the top panel. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
With the MasterBox MB511, airflow is the priority with a mesh front panel accompanied by the signature intakes seen within the series. The MasterBox MB520 prioritizes lighting as a build focus with a transparent front panel that offers full view of illuminated fans. The racing spirit is found throughout the series with a variety of aesthetics and functions based on preferences per model. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
The MasterBox MB530P utilizes the aggressive intakes seen on the MB510L, MB511, and MB520, but employs glass on both of the side panels and the front panel. The application of glass was put in place to support the display of addressable RGB components included with the chassis. The racing spirit remains with the MasterBox MB530P, but offers a few extras. The front panel and side panel offer a clear view of the front fans and system configuration, while the side panel behind the motherboard is patterned tempered glass to hide the open side of the PSU. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
Cooler Master’s new fine mesh feature unique characteristics and qualities on the MasterBox K500P. The mesh is three dimensional and can be shaped to compliment bold, rugged designs but it also refracts light differently than conventional mesh. The fans and PSU shroud are outfitted with addressable RGB. As a concept, details and specifications of this chassis are subject to change.
MasterBox MB500 TUF Gaming Edition
The TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaborative effort between ASUS, Cooler Master, and other brands to create a line of products for an aesthetically cohesive gaming PC. Marked by the TUF Gaming spirit, the MasterBox MB500 is a perfect addition to any (TUF Gaming) setup. A PSU cut out was designed to make the MasterWatt TUF Gaming Edition visible through the glass side panel. Military styling, complete with camouflage, outfits the case as a battle-ready soldier.
The Cooler Master booth will of course have mod projects on display. One such mod will be a collaboration project with modder, Nhenhopiohach, featuring a special modular design that was originally entered into the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds™ BATTLEMODS Asia Tour 2017 with Project Crosshairs. This design, which could end up as a future in store product, allows users to swap their system between multiple Cooler Master cases in seconds without having to dissemble the build.
