Cooler Masters enters 2013 with the introduction of the Centurion 6, a new model in the company's long-standing Centurion line. This new steel mid-tower features an all-black design with a mesh metal front panel with brushed aluminium stripes. The case provides three 5.25" bays, seven 3.5" storage bays (two convertible to 4x 2.5"), and seven expansion slots. The case measures 200mm x 464.5mm x 481mm and weighs 5.9kg, it accepts Micro-ATX and ATX motherboards.

Cooling is provided by a 140mm front blue LED fan and a 120mm rear fan. Besides the included fans, the case also has room for two 120/140mm top fans, a 120mm bottom fan, two 120mm side fans and a 120mm HDD cage fan.

On top of the front panel is a I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HD audio ports. The case is large enough for graphics cards of up to 295mm (405mm without HDD cage) and CPU coolers as high as 162mm.

Other special features include a dust filter, room for a 240mm radiator in the top, tool-free installation, and cut-outs for cable management and easy CPU cooler swapping.

The case will arrive later this month in two color options; Silver & Black and Midnight Black. Cooler Master did not provide pricing details but the case's predecessor was launched around for around 55EUR so this model's price will likely be in the vicinity of that.
Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, cooling solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer today announced the Centurion 6. Centurion 6 is the latest mid tower in the Centurion line, a mid-tower series famous for being economical and feature packed.

Air Cooling & Water Cooling Drops Temps Instantly
Centurion 6 promotes extreme air cooling or water cooling. It includes pre-cut mounts for a liquid cooling radiator on top (240mm) or back (120mm). There is support for up to 9 fans, including two optional 120mm fans on the side panel to cool graphics cards. A 140mm blue LED fan comes preinstalled behind the metal mesh front panel. This metal mesh is easily removable and allows for lots of airflow to cool your components. There’s plenty of room for long graphics cards, tons of drives, and cable management. High-end graphics cards, up to 405mm/15.9", can be installed thanks to the removable HDD cage.

Alternately, with the hard drive cage installed, users can setup multiple HDDs or SSDs with support for up to ten drives. Three tool free drive bays are provided for quick and easy setup. Seven HDD and four SSD drive bays offer flexibility for system upgrades. Additionally, there's lots of space behind the back plate for cable management.

Powerful I/O panel and Solid Construction
Centurion 6 features stylish aluminum stripes with power/reset buttons. An I/O panel has two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports for 10x fast file transfer and smart phone/tablet charging. The solid build steel body is sturdy and rubber stands help to reduce the noise, vibration and rattle at the source. The Centurion 6 will last you for years to come.
