Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P – Mini-ITX Done Right!

Cooler Master claims their MasterBox NR200P  delivers 'Unlimited Options' which is not quite correct, but neither is it far off the mark as this impressive Mini-ITX case packs in most of the features you associate with a regular ATX tower. You can install a number of storage drives, a 240mm or 280mm radiator and a triple slot graphics card in either the horizontal or vertical position. You may think we're building up to hit you with a high price but no, NR200P is also pretty darn cheap.

Cougar MX410 Mesh-G RGB

While we did come across some minor issues with the build quality and some small difficulties during the system installation, the Cougar MX410 Mesh-G RGB has no fundamental problems that make us believe that it is a poor case, it is quite the opposite. Cougar has to be commended for squeezing ATX motherboard support into such a compact ATX form factor.
