Cooler Master N200 Mini-Tower Case Review

Removing the left side panel reveals the black painted interior of the case.  This should compliment most component choices aesthetically.  There is a fairly generous amount of room to work with inside the case.


As we mentioned previously, the N200 is designed with water cooling in mind.  There are twin 120 mm vents in the front which support a 240 mm radiator as well as 140 and 120 mm mounts in the roof and a 120 mm vent in the rear of the case.  We had to move the rear exhaust fan into the roof as our Corsair H60 fouled the memory slots on our ITX motherboard with the cooler attached to the roof of the case.  This is unlikely to be the case with a Micro-ATX motherboard, though.


On the right hand side of the case there is a single 5.25″ bay alongside a further 3.5″ (external) bay at the top.  Moving down to the bottom of the case, there is room for two 3.5″ hard drives or four 2.5″ drives.


Before installing the motherboard we first had to attach the appropriate stand-offs.  This was a little troublesome as there isn’t a tool for tightening them down supplied and the threads are poorly cut into the motherboard tray.  There is a large cut out section in the motherboard tray which facilitates CPU cooler backplate installation.


There is plenty of room for large power supplies, which is surprising considering this is a value-orientated case.  Our Seasonic Platinum 1000W fitted with plenty of room to spare for the cables.  Even though there isn’t much room behind the motherboard tray for cable routing, the side panel has a bulging section which makes some room.


Installing a graphics card is fairly simple although a screwdriver is required as thumbscrews aren’t provided for the expansion slots.  There is plenty of room for long graphics cards, and every model currently available will fit.
