Hi! I just made an account here to post about my new MasterCase 5 case that  Cooler Master sent me. I moved my family's pc from a rather generic low budget case to the new MasterCase 5. It was a real pleasure to build in. The inside of the case is powdercoated and none of the edges are sharp and it's tool-less! I am looking forward to the new Maker items to add to the case. I think that this summer I am going to paint the case my daughter's school colors and add some lighting to it as well as a water cooler when I upgrade this fall.
 
As a special note: the MasterCase 5 has the easiest front panel to remove of any other case that I have ever come across.However, while easy to remove, it stays securely in place when installed. I sincerely wish that all manufacturers would take a note of how Cooler Master designed the panel holding tabs.
 
Here it is all finished. I really liked how the front panel was flush with the optical drive. It was also a breeze to install since it uses a  tool-less slide system to hold the drive.

Here the motherboard and power supply are installed. I really like that I can hide all the cables in the lower compartment since this is not a modular power supply. The included standoffs are brass. The PSU is sitting on a rail.Easy to install and to slide out to replace.

When seating the video card I came across this. My video card had two tiny screws where the lip for the slot covers is.

Removed and the card seats just fine. (The backplane is still attached in 3 spots)

You can mount your SDD inside the cover or on top of it with the supplied screws. I made it my way, and left it visible instead.

If you haul your PC to lan parties you will appreciate the serial number and the anti slot cover.

Nice and clean install! It will look great with some Maker upgrades.

I will make an upgrade thread once I get some of the Maker parts!
 
Thanks.
