Cooler Master reveals a new gaming case for smaller budgets. The MasterBox Lite 5 is expected to hit the market in tens days in the US and towards the end of this month in Europe. Pricing will be $49.99 (49.99EUR) and you will be able to choose between three models, including a black version, a black/white model and a black/red edition.
This mid-tower steel case fits an ATX motherboard and has room for a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 160mm and video cards as long as up to 400mm. The interior offers room for two 3.5" HDDs as well as a single 2.5" disk. As with most new cases, there's no room for a 5.25" device. The MasterBox Lite 5 has a plexi glass side panel and features a translucent front panel.
The front of the case fits up to two 140mm fans or three 120mm fans, but these are not included by default. Cooler Master ships a 120mm rear fan with the case and says there should be enough room behind the front panel for a 360mm watercooling radiator with a maximum thickness of 50mm (without fans). The top of the case features an I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports and the usual audio ports.
Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the release of the MasterBox Lite 5, a high performance ATX mid-tower case with DarkMirror front panel and external customization.
The MasterBox Lite 5 case is a straightforward choice for a PC build that looks good and has ample space. The case is armed with full black coating and a PSU cover to make your configuration pop against the black background.
The customizable trim allows users to choose from three different colours to suit their taste accordingly – red (default), black and white.
The four 120mm fans and front and rear watercooling support, ensures that performance is not compromised. Harboring up to 400mm of graphic card space, fitting your graphics card won’t be an obstacle. Finally, it comes with an edge to edge transparent acrylic side panel to show your internal components while the DarkMirror front panel tings the case with an attractive look, providing full visibility. Choose Your Style, with the MasterBox Lite 5.
“We wanted to introduce a standard and space saving case that still grants paramount characteristics. The MasterBox Lite 5 is compact yet does not sacrifice performance and style,” said case product manager, Wei Yang.
MasterBox Lite 5 Build
The MasterBox Lite 5 can easily go wherever you need your PC to be with its manageable size. Put it on your desk, squeeze it against your bookshelf, or hide it away under your colleague’s work space. Following small apartment design, Cooler Master has put effort into structuring layouts to give multiple functions to a single area of the case. This creates room for a little monster build with full-sized graphics cards, liquid cooling, and SSDs. Furthermore, the customization options allow users to “Make It Yours.”
