Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

At CES last month, Cooler Master unveiled to the world its line-up of cases for 2017, with the star of the show no doubt being the MasterCase Pro 6. A release date of around late March at the earliest was mooted, but that date has been fast-tracked…and we have one in the flesh, right here to test.

The MasterCase 5 series was critically acclaimed for its huge range of customisation options thanks to its FreeForm Modular System feature, allowing the user to tweak the case with a wealth of optional parts that could be located in numerous locations throughout the chassis.

With the launch of the MasterCase Pro 6, Cooler Master are promising that many of the FreeForm accessories already on the market are compatible, and therefore any previous purchases won’t go to waste and can be slotted straight into the Pro 6.

Closer Look – Exterior

Right from the off, the Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 promises to be something a little different. A full-colour outer box again protects the chassis, which is a nice change from the usual bland, brown cardboard with black text. Upon opening the box, we see that the unusual approach continues, and removing the chassis is achieved by lifting the whole unit out with the help of a huge canvas bag. Inside this, the MasterCase Pro 6 is clad in very substantial gray polystyrene, and then in a further bag.

At first glance, the Pro 6 is a little more reserved in appearance than its predecessor. Gone is the angular approach to the roof and front I/O panel, and we are greeted with something a lot sleeker in appearance.

Dominating the front side of the Pro 6 is a huge acrylic side panel, which I have to be honest and say was a little bit of a let-down, as I had heard that the Pro 6 would ship with tempered glass as standard. However, the window is huge, and features the darker glazed lower portion, as per the Pro 5, so I’m assuming it’s the same panel.

The front panel is completely free of any detail, save for an embossed Cooler Master badge affixed towards the base. The sleek, angular dimensions do give the MasterCase Pro 6 a very dominating look though I have to say, and I really like its clean lines. The rear side panel is even more sparse of features and is just a solid steel surface.

Around the back, we find the usual rear access features, but the MasterCase Pro 6 features a removable magnetic cover, helping to hide away the cables from the rear I/O whilst also adding to the cases symmetrical look.

Further enhancing the Pro 6 sleek look is the roof panel. Again, it appears to be devoid of any features, with the front I/O panel hidden away behind a magnetically latched flap. Once lifted, access is gained to an illuminated power button, audio & mic jacks positioned centrally, flanked by twin USB 3.0 ports, and finally, HDD led and reset button at the outer edges. All fairly standard, but for a premium case I would have expected four USB ports if I’m being honest.

Flipping the case over to take a look at the underside is no mean feat, as the MasterCase Pro 6 weighs in at 11.6 kilos, and due to its dimensions, it’s not easy to man handle.

Looking at the underside we can see that the whole case is lifted off the ground with the help of two huge feet, which span the whole width of the case. Wedged under the rear foot is a fairly substantial PSU filter, which is removed backward from the rear of the case.

Closer Look – Interior

Removing the front and roof panels is a two stage process. Thanks to spring loaded, magnetic mounts, each of these panels can be raised up, in order to increase airflow if your system is getting toasty. Whilst this may well increase noise leakage from the system, this is an ingenious feature. Once in the raised position, the panels then pop off from the magnetic mounting points.

The front panel swings forward on extended hooks to the base of the panel, prior to full removal. This allows access to the two 5.25” drive bays located at the front.

Upon full removal of the front panel, we gain access to the front dust filter, and behind this the two 140mm fans that come pre-installed.

Removing the side panels is also blissfully straight forward. Remove the captive thumb screws at the rear (all cases should have this feature), and the side panel slides effortlessly backward a couple of inches. Thanks to the rails the side panels sit on, they open slightly but stay in place before you lift them out. This works the same as on the MasterCase 5, and I’m glad that Cooler Master hasn’t changed this feature, as it just worked perfectly fine as it is.

With the side panel removed, we get our first look at the interior main chamber. To the right-hand side, you get a dual 5.25” drive bay cage and a tool-less HDD caddy with space for 3 drives. In the basement, we can see a further HDD caddy for a further two 3.5” hard drives. To the left we have a 140mm pre-installed LED exhaust fan, and two SSD mounts sitting on top of the PSU chamber divider.

Spinning the MasterCase Pro 6 around to take a look at the rear of the motherboard tray, and I have high hopes for some excellent cable management when it’s time for the build. The rear is extremely uncluttered, with the front I/O cables sat within a deep channel and retained by pre-installed cable ties. With the bottom drive caddy pushed all the way to the front of the chassis, the amount of space available for the PSU looks cavernous.

Removing the roof panel is identical as the front panel, as it’s held using the same spring-loaded, magnetic catches. Once removed, we have access to the pre-installed fan/radiator mounting bracket that sits above the main chassis frame. This bracket is available as an optional extra, so it’s nice to see that you get this included in the price of the MasterCase Pro 6. Held in place with thumbscrews, the mount just lifts off when installing your fans and/or radiator.

With all the outer panels removed, it’s clear to see that the possibilities for customisation are endless! Throughout the skeleton of the MasterCase Pro 6, there are various thumb screw mounting points, allowing you to re-locate the modules included, or even adding more to suit your requirements.

Closer Look – The Build

  • CPU – Intel Core i7 6700k
  • Motherboard – Asus ROG Maximus VIII Hero Alpha
  • Cooler – Fractal Design Kelvin S24 CPU Water Cooler
  • GPU – Asus ROG Radeon RX460 Strix
  • RAM – Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR4 3000MHz
  • SSD – Crucial MX300 525GB
  • PSU – BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 11 1000w

Not that I had any doubts anyway, but the Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 was an absolute dream to build in. For the purposes of this test build, I decided to remove the optical drive and hard drive caddies that were pre-installed into the main chamber. This replicates how I would set up the interior of my rig, as I prefer the wide open expanse of the main chamber, rather than clutter it with cages I would have no use for.

Fitting the all-in-one CPU cooler into the roof mounted bracket couldn’t have been simpler, as I could just remove it whilst I screwed down the motherboard, then re-fit it afterwards.

The space afforded to you in the basement for the excess PSU cables is extremely generous, and even without taking any real time to make the cable look tidy, they all tucked inside without any issue. In fact, the same applies to the cables management behind the motherboard. Every access point just seemed to be in a perfect position when routing the cables through to the front side, and thanks to the deep channel, fixing the cables in a neat fashion was child’s play.

The SSD brackets that come situated in the main chamber, on top of the PSU divider, can also be re-located around the back of the motherboard tray if you so wish. However, I decided to leave them where they were, as the access points for the SATA cables were again perfectly positioned, and gave a very tidy look.

The glow from the front mounted LED strip at the base of the MasterCase Pro 6 is quite subtle once all the panels were re-fitted, and the same can be said for the LED’s on the exhaust fan also.

The final act of the build was to re-fit the windowed side panel, and proceed to peel off the protective cover from the acrylic side window, which never tires of being perhaps the most satisfying element of the whole project!

Given my job of reviewing a number of PC cases on a regular basis, I can be forgiven for taking some of these test builds for granted. Stepping back and taking a look at the finished MasterCase Pro 6 though, this isn’t one of those occasions…it is an extremely good looking system.

The dimensions of the case are pretty substantial, and it is one of the larger mid-tower cases, but the clean lines and symmetry of design means that it still looks striking, without it being too overbearing.

Conclusion

Let’s get the awards sorted straight away, shall we? It gets the Play3r Platinum Award, as well as the Design Award.

It’s built to a really high standard, using good quality materials, and the level of design that’s gone into it to make it so modular is second to none. To top it off, it looks stunning too. The fact that you can add & remove so many modules to make your MasterCase Pro 6 perfectly bespoke to your needs is quite frankly, genius!

It’s true that the MasterCase Pro 6 shares a lot of the design elements with the Pro 5. If you already have the Pro 5, there’s nothing additionally ground breaking that would probably entice you to upgrade to this…but the Pro 6 looks better, and if you wanted to get into the MasterCase series before, but have yet to buy, then go for the Pro 6.

It also doesn’t cost the earth either. At the time of writing this review, Cooler Master advised that the RRP will be £139.99 here in the UK. Whilst I agree that is still a big chunk of cash, there are quite frankly inferior cases that cost more than that. For what you get bundled already with the Pro 6, at that price I think Cooler Master have a real winner on their hands.

The only downside is that the panels are quite easy to mark up. Whilst the majority of the fingerprints & smudges from handling cleaned off eventually, there is a mark that just won’t budge.

The bright lights of the photography rig do extenuate this to a certain extent, and it will be interesting to see how the MasterCase Pro 6 stands the test of time when in use over an extended period…. but I will find out! That’s because I am so impressed with Cooler Master’s latest offering, that this is going to be the new home of my everyday system.

The exterior look of the MasterCase Pro 6 will be enough for most buyers to pull the trigger on purchasing this, but the flexibility it also offers due to its FreeForm Modular System means you can adapt it whenever your needs change…and that’s the whole point here. Cooler Master was aiming for this… a case where one-size really can fit all, whatever the needs of the buyer. What more could you want?

Well…actually…I want the tempered glass side panel!

Massive thanks to Cooler Master for sending the MasterCase Pro 6 in for review.

Summary

Pros:

– FreeForm Modular System offers unrivaled flexibility – New subtle & sleek design looks fantastic – Adaptive air vents

– High-quality materials

Cons:

– Only 2 front USB headers – Side panel marked up easily

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6The Cooler Build of a chassis 

Cooler Master recently launched their latest iteration of the MasterCase series, yes as such it is time to look at their MasterCase Pro 6. The chassis fits the MasterCase product concept. A concept that allows you to mod and adjust the cassis to have the something that fits your needs (within defined parameters of course). The chassis series oozes and breathes pure DIY PC building and creating your own style PC. The new MasterCase 6 has space for motherboards up-to standard ATX form factors, it comes with dark side panels and some new innovations. New at the front is a LED glow located at the bottom. Also the I/O panel is now hidden located at the top panel.

The MasterCase series according to Cooler Master comes with a FreeForm Modular System. Yes there's a lot of marketing going on behind the new series, but that's not a bad thing as this chassis really was made to shape and form to something you want so that it fits your style, the idea behind that is called the Master concept. I'll let Cooler Master talk for a second here. Cooler Master started with their Make It Yours Slogan, and will offer the products that go along with it. Don't think chassis, think coolers, mice, keyboards and peripheral products. On the chassis side the result was the development of a concept case, the MasterConcept, that combines a product design based on feedback from modders and enthusiastic class users. The MasterConcept is the ultimate makers’ case; its super flexible interior and exterior modularity allows anyone to create a PC that is uniquely theirs in form and function. The ideas incorporated in the MasterConcept led directly to the creation of the MasterCase. Basically Cooler Master gives you guys more control over how their case looks and functions. So FreeForm provides options to adjust the case exterior via the replacement of panels and doors, while also offering flexibility for a mid-sized case in terms of interior layout.

The MasterCase Pro 6 is a 54cm tall tower that is fairly modular. For this model there will be two revisions available, a blue LED version: MCY-C6P2-KW5N and then there is a Red LED version located under SKU code MCY-C6P2-KW5N-01. Being a Cooler Master chassis you will be able to adjust or entirely remove drive cages, allowing for multiple system configurations like home servers, water-cooled workstations, or gaming rigs with dual-slot extra-long (296mm) graphics cards. Anyway, we'll talk you though the entire product with a massive photo-shoot, have a peek at the beast first, after which we'll start-up the review guided by photos, photos and yeah... more photos. As you can read from the introduction, Cooler Master is using a lot of marketing super-latives this round. Well, it's up to us to decide whether or not it is worthy of their words and claims. Let's have a peek at that stealthy styled chassis that is looking great alright.

Let's start the review on this 159 euro costing Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6.

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

A Closer Look at the Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 »

Despite the higher number in the name, the MasterCase Pro 6 sits behind the MasterCase Maker 5t since the Maker line is Cooler Master’s current flagship model with the MasterCase right in the middle and the MasterBox bringing up the rear. The MasterCase Pro 6 however, brings some new features to the table that were not in the MasterCase Pro 5, namely a magnetic top cover and front door panel that is a lot flatter but is more conducively flexible to airflow than previous model designs without an immediately obvious peppering of ventilation holes on its surface. Continuing their “Make it Yours” ethos, Cooler Master’s MasterCase Pro 6 has an ingenious way of using magnets to move these panels into place while making it easy to move and remove for modification purposes.

Review Sample Provided by: Cooler Master Product Name/Link to Website: Master Case Pro 6Product was given in exchange for work done to produce this review.

Cooler Master has put much thought on the MasterCase Pro 6 packaging as it can be conveniently brought out of the box with its cloth cover bag. Users simply need to pull it out via the bag handles. Inside the bag, the case itself is covered in more foam covering in the form of foam pads on each side and a foam sheet wrap. The pads are tied in place so as not to come off at all during handling. This is probably the most comprehensively packed cases I have seen and I have reviewed hundreds of cases over the years.

While the documentation sheet is right on top of the foam package as the user opens the box, the accessories are tucked inside the case itself in one of the drive trays. These accessory pieces are inside a cardboard box unlike the MasterCase Maker 5t which has a magnetic metal housing for its accessories.

Each pack contains the following:

  • 1x side-panel lock bracket
  • 1x #6 32*5 screw for lock bracket
  • 4x #6 32-29 screw for front fans
  • 1x stand-off socket adapter
  • 7x motherboard tray stand-off
  • 5x #6 32*10 HDD cage screws
  • 2x #6 32*6 HDD cage screws
  • 15x #6 32*5 PSU/Fan Cage/Motherboard screws
  • 10x cable management zip ties
  • 4x M3*5 ODD screws
  • 1x fan cage bracket
  • 8x Ø5*10 top fan screws
  • 20x M3*4 2.5” SSD screws
  • 3x 3-pin to 4-pin cable adapters
  • 2x Velcro cable management strap
  • 4x m3*6 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 4x Ø3*6 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 4x Ø3*7 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 2x 5.25” bridging connector for fan controller bracket

Other accessories pre-installed inside the case:

  • 3x 140mm 3-pin fan
  • 1x CM StormGuard theft-prevention security tool

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

Here at KitGuru we have eagerly followed the various MasterCases and MasterBoxes that Cooler Master have released over the last year or two. Today we are looking at the brand-new MasterCase Pro 6. It is priced at £139.99 here in the UK, so a key part of this review will be finding out if this is good value for money.

Despite the name, the Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 is not actually a successor to the MasterCase Pro 5. Rather, it is best to think of them as cousins – the Pro 5 is designed to offer extravagant visuals, while the Pro 6 is much more minimalistic. Of course, the MasterCase Pro 6 does make use of Cooler Master’s trademark FreeForm modular system, so you can easily add in accessories and upgrade the case should you wish. Read on for the full review including an analysis of the internal and external features as well as our temperature testing.

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

1 - Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review 2 - Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review - Interior 3 - Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review - Cooling Performance 4 - Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review - Performance Analysis and Conclusion Next Manufacturer: Cooler Master UK price (as reviewed): £132.29 (inc VAT) US price (as reviewed): Currently unavailable Cooler Master's MasterCase series seems to be growing quite rapidly. The newest release, the MasterCase Pro 6, is part of the company's ATX lineup along with all the various MasterCase 5 editions and is built around the same frame as those cases. However, you are not able to upgrade any of the 5-series cases to the Pro 6 in the way that you can move from a MasterCase 5 to a Pro 5 or Maker 5 simply by buying the right accessories, at least for now, as the 5-series cases would need some external modifications to be compatible with the new panels Cooler Master is using here. That said, the company has confirmed that future 5-series chassis will have these modifications applied, but it has not given a release window for these revised editions. This is also the first and currently only announced case in the 6-series (i.e. no MasterCase 6 or MasterCase Maker 6 so far). It is not completely divorced from Cooler Master's modular approach to cases, however, as it is compatible with a range of accessories designed for the 5-series, including the tempered glass side panel and all the internal ones. Click to enlarge If you're completely lost by this point, fear not, as from here on in we'll be looking at this case as a standalone product; we just thought it important to contextualise it amongst the growing MasterCase family of cases and accessories. The MasterCase Pro 6 is Cooler Master's attempt at creating a high-end case that doesn't also come with a traditional gamer look. The smooth outer panels do make for a rather refined and toned down aesthetic, although there's still a large window and red LEDs on the rear fan and in the bottom-front corner (a blue LED version is also available), so whether or not it's truly a grown up chassis or suitable for office use is for you to decide. Click to enlarge The chassis is very solid, but we were still hoping for a little more from it in terms of build quality. It still uses plastic on the roof and front panel, for example, whereas aluminium (or at least an outer aluminium coating) would have been nicer to see given the price tag. The chassis stands on thick rubber feet, and a full-size carry bag is supplied for transportation, as the smooth panels mean Cooler Master has had to forgo any form of a handle. Even the I/O panel is hidden in order to maintain the smooth panels. A small tab at the front of the roof lifts out the way whenever you want to use the buttons or ports here, and there are no extra features beyond the usual USB and audio connectivity. Click to enlarge - The MasterCase Pro 6 with its front and roof panels popped (left) and removed (right) Solid panels like those here often result in a lack of airflow, but Cooler Master has a couple of ways to combat this. Discreet air vents are positioned in all four corners of the case, so it always has at least some means of airflow. You can also increase the ventilation by “popping” the top and front panels outwards; they're held in place magnetically, and a small tug on either one will lift the panel a few centimetres away from the case. Pulling more firmly releases the panels entirely for access to the fan mounts, and it's easy to replace the panels once you're finished – the mechanism is really well designed. Airflow is actually generated by a pair of 140mm front intake fans and a single 140mm rear exhaust. Click to enlarge With the front panel removed, we see a large dust filter guarding the front fans and a couple of 5.25in drive bay covers. These are an odd choice for a case with a solid front panel; we imagine they're something of a hangover from the core chassis this case is based on and can't see many people using them. The front filter is well designed, clipping in and out of place easily. Meanwhile, removing the roof panel reveals Cooler Master's fan/radiator bracket secured to the roof with thumbscrews. Click to enlarge A quick look around back reveals a couple of noteworthy features. First is the standard PSU dust filter, which again deserves praise for its mechanism – it's very easy to remove, clean, and replace without having to lift or tilt the case. There's also an external cable management shroud, although we're less enamoured by this. The plastic is thin, and consequently it feels cheap. It also blocks access to the PSU filter and the side panel thumbscrews, and honestly we just don't think it's that necessary. Still, it's easy to remove and forget about if you agree.
