CoolerMaster MasterBox 5 Review

CoolerMaster MasterBox 5 Review


Having already looked at the MasterCase5 line, we’ve a bit of an inkling that CoolerMaster are trying very hard to produce cases that offer the enthusiast and system builder lots of versatility and options straight out of the box.  Indeed, CoolerMaster have even attached the tag line “You Decide The Inside” to the marketing of the MasterBox5.  Well, we’re never ones to take things at face value so rest assured we’ll be seeing not only whether it’s a decent case, but whether it stands up to the marketing hype.  With that in mind, we should point out that at just £59.99 the MasterBox 5 won’t have to do much to earn it a good reputation.
