Master Case Pro 6: We all know that Master Pro series from Cooler Master has always been great, Because they offer full modular design and best possible airflow, the Master Case series has always been open from Inside giving good space to the card, and with a beautiful shroud In the bottom for hiding cables, I think that Master Case series from Cooler Master is one of the bests, they are now on Competitive level to many cases, and we have heard very fewer complaints regarding them
Master Case Pro 6 Price & Quick Thoughts:
Well, the first thing that came into my mind was that It had no tempered glass, which Is a big drawback, However, you can buy it separately, but that will cost you $50. The price of this Case is $169, and I think that is not suitable considering the fact that $100 cases like NZXT S340 Elite are offering Tempered Glass, so that’s not what we expected.
Similar Case from Cooler Master: The Haf H500p Review.
The Inside design of case Is overall nothing new, same like the old MasterCase 5 and MasterCase 5T, It has modular drive cages on the right, same like the Old MasterCase’s, It has rubbers grommets for better Cable management, a bottom window Is also included to hide the cables, It has 2 modular drive cages located with the shroud. Overall It’s really good from Inside, the Window on the shroud is really beautiful though It has no led lights. You can buy additional drive cages from Cooler Masters website, but that will cost you around $20. The case also Includes a Red/Blue led fan at the rear. The Case supports 412mm / 16.22″ long Graphic Cards and 3.5″ without HDD cage, 296mm / 11.7″ (with 3.5″ HDD cage)
Well, the MasterCase Pro 6 has Led Lights In front, that can come In 2 colors, either red or blue, you have the option here, The case Supports 120/140mm x3 fans at front, It has dual 140mm fans Included In the front, apart from this It has magnetic dust filters In front too, that is easy to access, and another dust filter is also located In the bottom.
The case Io Is behind the hidden floppy, It has 2 USB 3.0, and Headphone jacks, I think 2 USB 3.0 aren’t enough nowadays, at least 4 should have been added since the demand of USB 3.0 Is increasing every day.
At the back, there are Rubber Grommets, and an option to attach 2 SSDS with the help of mounting screws, the case also comes with Included Zip ties, that offer a reliable Cable management system. Building a PC, In this Case, would be quite easy.

So Whats New?
According to Cooler Master, they have added a new feature, which Is quite Incredible, considering the fact, that we haven’t seen It so far, this feature Includes a magnetic top and front panel, you can pull It a bit outside, and it’ll have no Issue, So what this feature does that It Increase the airflow, unlikely If you Insert the panels back to Normal, It won’t have that good airflow, and for this feature Cooler Master also received the Innovation award at Computex 2017
Well, the case price Is $169, and I totally think thats a bit expensive, because there are few drawbacks, like no tempered Glass and also the case catches fingerprints very easily.
For this Price cooler master should have added a tempered glass, because buying It separately will make no sense.
the total price will goto $200 +, In this budget a NZXT S340 or Corsair 460x would be suitable, but If your budget Is in $169 or close, this Case Isn’t worth It.
The new airflow design that leaves a bit gap Is a bit weird, Because the Case looks like unfinished and looks really bad once you leave a gap for further Airflow.
I’d suggest going for Corsair 460x or NZXT S340 Elite, Corsair 750D, Master Case 5T.
