MSI’s Prestige Creator 400M pledges to be the “perfect fit” for EATX systems – CES 2020

We’ve already talked about MSI’s Creator and Prestige series products from CES, but we skipped over something important, MSI’s Prestige Creator 400M PC case. 

Workstation users require something completely different than standard users. Workstation users often have to go bigger to fit in a broader range of components, more PCIe devices, stronger cooling solutions and additional elements that gamers may never consider. 

The Prestige Creator 400M is designed for content creators, top-tier systems which will contain processors like AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series with EATX TRX40 motherboards and a large number of PCIe devices. The Creator 400M is for users who require a large enclosure, quiet operation and a professional aesthetic. 

With this case, MSI promises to be the first manufacturer in the industry to utilise a laminated tempered glass side panel, offering users a strong 5.38mm side panel that helps to dampen noise from the inside of the chassis while giving users a look inside the system. Other areas of the case use a high-density cotton material to dampen the noise output of components inside the case.  

When processors like AMD’s Threadripper series are intended to fit inside this enclosure, MSI is proud to confirm that their Creator 400M will support 360mm All-In-One Liquid Cooling solutions at the front of the enclosure. The case also supports 5.25-inch optical drives, a rarity for modern PC case designs. MSI is aware that high-end workstations may still need to use physical media from time to time and has prepared its Creator 400M for this eventuality. 

On the case’s front I/O, MSI’s Creator 400M supports two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C port. In their press release, MSI states that its Creator 400M designed this chassis with “quality, cost-effectiveness, and power” in mind, which hopefully means that the Creator 400M won’t be as expensive as some of us expect.

MAG Forge 100 Series

At CES 2020, MSI also showcased its MAG Forge 100 series of PC cases, which can ship with up to three pre-installed ARGB fans to deliver strong out of the box cooling and a lot of customisation options. Like many modern cases, the MAG Forge features a tempered glass side panel and uses a meshed front intake to deliver unrestricted airflow from outside of the enclosure.

The Forge 100 series is designed to support ATX motherboards and up to a 240mm radiator at the front or top of the enclosure. This case can also ship with a 1-6 ARGB fan controller, which allows users to control multiple fans through a single LED switch or via an MSI motherboard through MSI’s Mystic Light App.
