Overall we are impressed with what the Cooler Master N200 has to offer. Despite the value nature of this particular model, Cooler Master has clearly thought through the design, finding ways to reduce the cost while not sacrificing on functionality.
The build quality of the case is as good as can be expected at the price point and the aesthetics are pleasant. This case is specifically designed to house 120 mm, 140 mm and 240 mm radiators may entice those enthusiasts on a budget. After all, the most budget restricted users often want to spend most of their money on the internal components rather than the case.
We found the cooling performance of the N200 to be perfectly acceptable but the included fans are a little noisy. We can’t really expect Noctua grade silence at this price, though, and the fans aren’t as loud as those on some other similarly priced cases.
The N200 isn’t yet listed at any of the UK etailers but is available in the US for USD49 (from NewEgg). We expect that this will translate into a UK price of somewhere around the £40-£45 mark which means it offers great value for money.
- Minimalist design.
- Solid build quality.
- Great value.
- Basic watercooling support.
- Loud fans.
