    Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5

    Quite possibly the best mid-tower chassis in years.

    £180 for a case, Ok it's a nice case but it's a stupid price.

    Is it really twice as good as the 690 case for £90?

    It has carry handles, wow great, it weighs 12kg without the PC innards and how often do you move your tower PC around?

    USB Type-C, great it's one of the first but everyone else will catch up soon and I doubt most people even have devices that need it yet.

    "Decent cooling performance"

    Really? For the price, performance is pretty mediocre. Meanwhile the Fractal Design Define S is around £60 to £70. I could almost buy three for the price of this.

    As much as I like the Mastercase, and the Maker's features are worthwhile, I wouldn't pay asking price for them. To me the base version is a very good deal, and length of the case aside I find it personally a much more appealing choice than the h440 or the fractal cases. The pro is also I feel a worthwhile upgrade that I've been considering for future proofing incase I ever do go water cooled. The maker though, I wouldn't be using the LEDs. The enhanced IO I would make use of, the fan hub is always useful, but really I think my price limit for a case is that of the Mastercase Pro.

    Well... one thing from me which is a minus for every chassis I see, no visible 5 1/4 bay for optical drive, all hidden behind something or not easy access.

    Why do they not put that into the 'The Bad'?

    And it is really bad all over as I see all these great looking cases and all with all those awesome options inside, but as for one I need an optical drive BD/DVD/Burner alongside with everything else and I have to consider it a serious design flaw to not have the option.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5

    Can't agree with this review at all. It's yet another over priced case from Coolermaster. Why would anybody waste £180 on this when you can get better cases for much less? If someone really wanted a case that looks like that then surely they would buy the Phanteks Eclipse P400 and save £130 which could be spent elsewhere. In fact any of the Phanteks cases would be a more sensible buy plus with most of them there is a huge saving to be had.

    Probably because not everyone consider it a bad. A lot of people seldom use their optical drive nowadays so having it out of sight may be a plus for them, or a no issue (for me). If they were to get rid of the 5.25" bay altogether, then I'd have a problem.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5

    I am extremely disappointed, even disgusted with Coolermaster as they have not released a new full tower atx case in several years. The last time they released a full tower atx case was back in October 2011. Forget the CosmosII. I am not paying £300 for a case that is 90% plastic. Have CM lost their minds?. I am extremely unhappy with CM.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5

    I have a HAF X and I love it, but this is £50 more than even that I just don't get it. I don't see why customisability should lead to such ridiculous prices.
