Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

Rating: 8.0.

Here at KitGuru we have eagerly followed the various MasterCases and MasterBoxes that Cooler Master have released over the last year or two. Today we are looking at the brand-new MasterCase Pro 6. It is priced at £139.99 here in the UK, so a key part of this review will be finding out if this is good value for money.

Despite the name, the Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 is not actually a successor to the MasterCase Pro 5. Rather, it is best to think of them as cousins – the Pro 5 is designed to offer extravagant visuals, while the Pro 6 is much more minimalistic. Of course, the MasterCase Pro 6 does make use of Cooler Master’s trademark FreeForm modular system, so you can easily add in accessories and upgrade the case should you wish. Read on for the full review including an analysis of the internal and external features as well as our temperature testing.

Cryorig H7 Air Cooler Review

The Cryorig H7 has been called the 'Hyper 212 killer.' Just how good is it really?

    What is up with Cooler Master at the moment? It’s like the design team picked up a catalogue from the early noughties. Steel, Acrylic windows that scratch when you look at them, 90 degree angles everywhere and I don’t know if you mention it in the video but in the second page the 4th picture is absolutely covered in fingerprints like you’ve just been working in a McDonalds. Mid way through the year I would not be surprised if they launch onto the market a revolutionary new range called the HAF for case builders who like to dust every other month.
    It’s such a competitive marketplace now that £140 can get you some seriously nice cases from Corsair, Phanteks, NZXT and even the Bequiet Dark Base 900 if you shop around, I know what I’d rather have.

    Personally I like the aesthetics but I agree – £140 can get you some cases with a real ‘wow’ factor, something I feel the MasterCase Pro 6 lacks. you’re 100% right about the steel being a fingerprint magnet though
