    It's a shame that the SSD mounts on the bottom plane cover the SSD up. Sort of place you expect to show off the kit

    Ooh wow, two or three panels that have a few different options... I'm impressed.
    Not as impressed as finding out how cheap and easy it is to put a window in my side panel myself, while getting exactly the window I had imagined... but still, I guess it's progress.

    Not really my thing, as I prefer to do all my own modding, but gives some options for those who don't like the hassle.

    I like the fact that there is a panel to hide the dust that forms around intake fans which I always considered to be a flaw with mesh fronted designs. The window is negative for me due to my lazy build style that involves zero cable management and my value focused shopping style that involves zero consideration for component aesthetics. With acoustic lined panel options this case might be OK for my typical builds. With a minimum of internal accessories perhaps not too expensive although I suspect the freeform concept is more about improving margins than rolling out choice.

    Marketing needs to improve because it's really not clear what the options are and there is potential confusion as to the key differences between Mastercase 5, Mastercase Pro 5 and now Mastercase Maker 5. Call everything 5 for max confusion.

    Re: Cooler Master launches its MasterCase Maker 5 chassis

    control for multiple PSU parameters via CM's mobile and desktop apps.
    I've never heard of user-adjustability for PSU parameters before - fan response is about the only one I can think would be relatively safe to give to users, I wonder what else they've provided?

    How else would you know when your PC needs a good dusting out?
