Cooler Master MasterCase 5 and Pro 5 launched

Cooler Master have launched two new cases today, the MasterCase 5 and Pro 5.

The designs of these new cases, both mid size towers, feature Cooler Masters own FreeForm Modular System.MC PRO_Explode-package (2)As the name suggests, it allows you to chop and change internal parts of the case to make the case fit your requirements exactly; whether this is adding more drive bays or the need to add a 240mm radiator. Cooler Master have you covered.

Now of course Cooler Masters subtle lines are evident throughout the standard look of the case. If you so wanted, it is possible to keep this understated look it is entirety without the flash.

The main difference between the Pro 5 and the normal MasterCase is the inclusion of a Side Window Kit and a Top Cover Kit, which retail for a combined £30.

The regular MasterCase 5 itself retails for £89.99inc and the MasterCase Pro 5 retails for £109.99, making it an easy choice if a Window Kit or the Top Cover Kit are also wanted.

Both cases look very nice and I hope both will be on display to take a look when I meet Cooler Master down at Insomnia 55.

[expand title=”Press Release”]  

MANCHESTER, United Kingdom– Cooler Master is excited to announce the availability of the MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5, the world’s first mid-sized modular towers with exterior expandability, made possible with accessories purchased separately. Debuting at Computex 2015, the MasterCase ushers in a new era of products with FreeForm™ Modular System that offers unparalleled control over form and function.


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.”

Harness the Maker Spirit

Cooler Master invited eight Makers to Computex 2015. They came from varied walks of life: artist, engineer, designer, pro gamer, modder, and VR developer, yet they shared one thing in common: the spirit of making.

The MasterCase 5 enabled each Maker to create a computer system that was uniquely theirs without compromising their build requirements. From aggressive looking gaming rigs to classy workstations, and even a robotic bartending machine that could prepare drinks, the MasterCase 5 was the platform used to share their passion with the world.

Upgrade Your PC Inside Out with the MasterCase 5’s FreeForm™ Modular System

The MasterCase 5 breaks new ground in the way PCs are designed, made, bought and used. Fundamental to this reimagination is the FreeForm technology. Cooler Master wants 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. It is Cooler Master’s interpretation of the “Form Follows Function” principle.

In the MasterCase 5, 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.

Two models will be made available at launch: the base MasterCase 5 and the upgraded MasterCase Pro 5. The base MasterCase 5 comes with dual top handles and a standard side panel while the MasterCase Pro 5 comes 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.

All these accessories, including external panels and kits will be available for purchase from authorized retailers and also online at the Cooler Master online stores in North America, Europe, and Asia.  More modular accessories are to be announced at a later time. To learn more visit:
