Is it possible to remove the Maker 5 front I/O?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I want to mod the Mastercase Maker 5's front I/O and make it RGB instead of just red - Is it possible to remove the entire unit from the case in order to do this? Also, anyone know if getting into the I/O component is possible or have a picture of the inside of the casing?


I'm hoping that Cooler Master will make a controllable panel at some point - perhaps with the USB 2.0 removed and a 3.1 / 3.2 interface with the new connector added in its place. Heres hoping.



(Photos are just a crude reference of what I want to do...apologies for the rubbish quality)

You can remove the IO panel.

  1. Remove the door + sidepanels.
  2. Remove the front bezel (there are 3 clips on both sides, open them from the inside (that is why the sidepanels need to be removed)
  3. You'll see 2 screws on the front (1 on each side); Unscrew those.
  4. Gently pull out the IO panel, also taking care of the cables.

Changing the LEDs to RGB.. Can't really help with that, sorry :)
