CoolerMaster MasterCase Pro 6 Review

Introduction

Ladies we give you the "New" CoolerMaster Master Case Pro 6.  Why have we put new in Speechmarks?  Well have a think about the comment on the home page that lead you to this review about it not being a glitch in the Matrix and maybe you'll start to form an idea of where we're headed with this.  For those of you that don't have Holmsian like powers of deduction we'll make it simple for you.  Although the case is new, in a way, sort of...The chassis has been around for quite a while now, 2 years in fact, and as such we feel it's a bit of a stretch to call it a "New" case.  Had it just been another variant of the "5" series, then fair enough, but we think calling it the Pro 6 could perhaps be a little misleading.  the Pro3 was smaller and took up to M-ATX boards, so it stands to reason that the Pro 6 is bigger.  Ok it might not take E-ATX, but it's bigger year?  It'll take more kit inside and has much more room for water cooling and the like??? Good job we're here to put the record straight.  So is it any good?  Well for the greater part we loved the 5 series, there were a few issues with it, but perhaps they've been rectified with the Pro 6.  Best we have a look at the tech spec and find out.

More dressing on the outside of the Box. This feels like a "Race to Best plain Box" type of case. Why not come up with something interesting on the internals of the case

Personally don't want a "gamer" case with lots of flashy blinky lights and red everywhere.Quote
