The famous maker of coolers, PSUs and PC cases Cooler Master has announced the MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5 PC towers. If you are not impressed we will tell you this – they are the world’s first mid-sized modular towers with exterior expandability, which is made possible with accessories purchased separately.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Raymen Wu, Global Marketing Director said, “The MasterCase represents the first of a new wave of products with our unique FreeForm technology that enables endless build possibilities. Launched in tandem with the new slogan ‘Make It Yours.’, we kicked off a new drive to harness the maker spirit in our products and community. FreeForm will be applied across all of our products in the near future ensuring you have the freedom to fully express yourself.”
The main idea behind the MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5 PC towers is to allow users to have absolute control over how their case looks and functions. FreeForm provides options to not only adjust the case exterior, but also offers interior layout flexibility in a mid-sized case. For instance, in the MasterCase 5 case, FreeForm allows a single case to support a host of different configurations, enabling users to upgrade rather than replace their case and system. Through a unique Clip-and-Click panel, FreeForm lets users adjust vertically or remove the drive cages entirely. This flexibility allows building multiple system configurations like home servers, water-cooled workstations, or gaming rigs with dual-slot extra-long graphics cards using one single case.
When the cases reach the market they will offer various configurations. The base MasterCase 5 will come with dual top handles and a standard door while the MasterCase Pro 5 will come with a side window panel, elevated mesh top cover, and additional interior expandability options. Users wishing to upgrade from the MasterCase 5 to the Pro 5 version can do so through an ecosystem of accessories, which will be available for purchase from authorized retailers and also online at the Cooler Master online stores in Europe, North America and Asia. More modular accessories are to be announced at a later time.
In Europe the MasterCase 5 is expected to sell for EUR 124.90 including VAT, while the MasterCase Pro 5 will retail for EUR 159.90 with VAT. You can pre-order your MasterCase now.
