general information

Focusing on a more 'make-your-own' product philosophy, the MasterCase 5 gives you the absolute control over how your case looks and functions. Its elegantly smooth, flexible FreeForm Modular System allows you to customize and upgrade your case's form and functionality with multiple interior and exterior accessories*. Meanwhile, whether in hardware compatibility, expandability or cooling performance, the MasterCase 5 doesn’t make any compromise.

Go with either basic dual top handles and standard door of the MasterCase 5 or an elevated mesh top cover of the MasterCase Pro 5.

* Accessories may not be included. Please refer to the specifications.

FreeForm Modular System

FreeForm Modular System lets you adjust the exterior structure and aesthetic via a range of replacement panels and doors. Each choice changes the look and feel of the case, but also the flexibility of the interior layout.

general information

Customize with External Modularity

Easily customize your case by adding a top cover and water bracket for a new look along with liquid cooling radiator support, freeing up space inside the case. And if you want to show off your system, a window side panel is also available. These options are included in MasterCase Pro 5 version or available separately.

Adjust Internal Layout Clip-and-Click Panel

But this isn't just about aesthetics. Each decision opens new possibilities.

Leveraging the unique clip-and-click panel, FreeForm lets you vertically adjust or entirely remove your optical disk drive (ODD) and HDD via sliding locks. So intuitive, you'll play with your configurations just for fun. Well, some people will. Just click-in the cages, and adjust the height to suit their needs. Position them at the top to allow room for up to three extra-long graphics cards, or retain only the bottom positioned cages to add a front-mounted radiator for even more cooling options.

Integrate replacement accessories like:

  • Fan brackets
  • Water cooling reservoirs
  • GPU support brackets
general information

Slip-and-Clip Pockets

The first Cooler Master case to incorporate two easy to install slip-and-clip solid-state drive pockets (2.5") with four easy mounting positions. Showcase them on the partition panel or hide them behind the motherboard tray for a cleaner look.

  • Two behind the motherboard tray
  • Two on top of power sup
general information

Unmatched Ventilation

FreeForm enables the option to install three front-mounted 140mm fans and a 280mm radiator for unmatchable ventilation due to a unique facility to horizontally shift the bottom-mounted hard disk drives. There's also support for up to six 140mm fans through the case, unique for a mid-sized tower.

Accessories

FreeForm extends beyond the case to include all the support you need in terms of selecting and purchasing components through a range of accessories to truly help you Make It Yours.

Easy to build! Good air flow! Well Designed.

Pros: Easy to work with. Designed with some thought in normal people building a PC. Put in everything I needed and still have room for air flow. SSD drive placement options are a plus.

Cons: Had to be a spend a bit of extra time with cable management. Plenty of room, just have to be creative with tie downs.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again. Would recommend to others who need more than average airflow. Worked correctly from the beginning.

I love this case so much...

Pros: Very sleek looking, very awesome cable management options. The way the case came was perfect for my setup, didn't need to fool around with the modular system at all. The handles are what sold me since I tend to move my computer around a lot. We'll see if they can hold up, though, they seem to be pretty well made. Awesome craftsmanship overall. Comes with pretty much all the screws you'll need to mount just about anything.

It's just so pretty...

Cons: My ONLY complaint is that the HDD housing doesn't hold the HDD very... firmly, for lack of a better term. It kinda wiggles around in it's housing. Honestly, it's a very picky thing. I do tend to move it around a lot though, hence the want for handles. I'll figure something out to keep it from wiggling.

One more thing: the thumb screws that hold the panels on are a little on the short side. By that I mean if you don't push them in kinda hard while tightening it you could run the risk of stripping them. I started stripping one that would not catch the threads until I used some force to make them catch.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for 95-ish USD, including shipping (3 day). Very happy with this purchase :)

Borderline defective but not enough for me to send it back

Pros: It's a beautiful case, I've been using Cooler Master cases for a long time and I've never had an issue until now. It's packaged well, very organized and clean on the inside, the handles are wonderful, the hardware comes in a convient little box in the HD bay, I like what I see.

Cons: The first thing I notice upon removing the packaging foam around the box was the 2 screws in that back that hold the side panel on where bent downward. These screws are designed to be removed by hand but this was impossible with the angle of the bore and uneven threads, upon removing the screws it bored out the hole in the process, they still will thread in but won't lock in place. I can get a tap and die and fix this and replace it with a lag screw, or just leave them out since the door of the case is difficult to open anyways. Its now time to put in the studs that hold the motherboard up. Not a single one will thread in by hand, there seems to be a wall about 1.5 turns down on each one. I use a screw to tighten them down which works, but then the screw is too tight to remove without taking the stud with it. No matter how slow and easy I go, to get past the 'wall' I must make the screw too tight to remove once past. I'm now using plyers which is just destroying the black finish on them but I suppose no one will be seeing them anyways. Still its a real pain to thread these in with plyers, unfornately I don't have a socket that small.

Other Thoughts: I'll reccomend Cooler Master but I'm sort of on the war path about how long this simple part is taking. Maybe I just got the bad apple.

So well made it's scary!

Pros: So many good little details went into this case! There are thumb screws for every component you'll ever need to move more than once, and most stay attached to the case after disconnecting the component so you can't lose the screws. It's got a simple but sleek and cool design. The carry handles are built right into the chassis for a stable, strong grip. The construction is sturdy overall and doesn't scratch or tarnish easily. So. Many. Build. Options. Now that I own this case I firmly expect never to buy another.

Cons: My only complaint is that the earlier models had SSD slots BEHIND the motherboard backing, accessible from the opposite panel of the case, and I was disappointed that they seem not to have kept that feature.

Super Sturdy

Pros: Rugged handles which are part of the frame, not just welds
Solid Case
massive space, side panels leave room for wires behind the motherboard, and for a big power supply

Cons: It is heavy. I think it's made of Wolverine's adamantium or something.

Other Thoughts: Needed a case for a system for transportation across the state twice a month. This case was heavier than we wanted, but the handles were perfect. If you're strong, there is no problem carting this around holding either handle. Fast forward to the PA turnpike, got rear-ended hard enough to total both vehicles. The back trunk needed cut off to get to the compartment. This lost a blank under the dvd drive. This solid monster kept everything tight and safe.

Easy Case to Build Inside

Pros: Roomy, Very easy to build inside with great flexibility and cable management.

Cons: Build quality is somewhat of a concern. One of the front USB 3.0 ports does not work / accept compatible USB drives due to a broken port.

Other Thoughts: If you can get a brand new case with all ports working, then I would highly recommend !

5/ 5

Pros: All the fans on this case are quiet!
Spacious layout makes it easy to install components for someone with big hands
Modular, can put fans almost anywhere
No issue installing a water cooler
Except for the sides all areas are porous allowing excellent airflow
I like the handles for moving the case up and down stairs
After a month no accumulation of dust in the case. The filters in front catch it all and are easy to wipe clean
Red RGB lights on AMD motherboard and GPU like awesome in this case through the transparent side panel

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was on the fence on buying this case but I sure am glad I did. I previously used old aluminum cases and I was worried about heat buildup but no issue there. It exceed may expectations
