If you're looking for a new case to enter the new year, Cooler Master offers its MasterCase Maker 5T. This is a new "turbo edition" mid-tower case with a sharp, sports-car like look with a black & red color scheme. The case measures 511 x 235 x 548 mm, it weighs 12.3kg and has a top handle grip so you can easily move it around.
Both sides feature tempered glass side panels and the front panel fits with a magnetic grip.
As its part of the MasterCase lineup, this model supports the FreeForm Modular System to give you a high degree of freedom to upgrade your case. The interior fits a motherboard of up to ATX size, has room for two 3.5" HDDs and up to four 2.5" SSDs. A front I/O panel provides four USB 3.0 ports, HD Audio ports and a lighting & fan speed controller, but unfortunately no USB Type-C.
MasterCase Maker 5t comes with one pre-installed red LED strip and has three more LED light connectors available. It supports up to seven fans (three 140mm fans are pre-installed) and has room for watercooling radiators of up to 280mm. Also worth mentioning is that it fits VGA cards with a length of up to 412mm if your remove the HDD cage (296mm with HDD cage) and a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 190mm.
The bad news is the case is listed on the Cooler Master webshop for a whopping 249.99EUR ($249.99), which seems awfully high for what's on offer here.
