ASUS VivoBook S14/S15

Cooler Master has been hard at work at creating the latest and greatest PC case for the longest of time. Take a look at the classic ATCS 840, Cosmos II, and also the CM 690 series – they’re fantastic. In the recent years, Cooler Master redefined itself with the Master-something mantra. Now, they’ve returned with a brand new announcement – the MasterBox Lite 5.

MasterBox Lite 5

The MasterBox Lite 5 is meant to be a high-performance mid-tower case with an ATX form factor. It has an option to mount 4 120mm fans, 400mm graphic cards, and edge-to-edge transparent acrylic panel instead of tempered glass. This is a brilliant move by Cooler Master to reduce its cost and price, by the way.

Looking at these images right here, it does have a pretty nice edge-to-edge acrylic side panel like those other much more expensive tempered glass cases do. And hey – the MasterBox Lite 5 does have a PSU shroud to maintain clean cabling routes for your rig. Better yet, there are dust filters for the front and bottom intakes too – something that is less commonly found in budget cases!

Spacious, and comes with a basement/shroud too!

The MasterBox Lite 5 also has the latest design language for its aesthetics. Because come on now, PC cases are more like show pieces than functional hardware these days. It has what Cooler Master calls DarkMirror front panel, which is essentially a piece of tinted transparent piece. Not sure if it’s also acrylic or glass.

The MasterBox Lite 5 is available in a total of 3 different trim colors – black, red, and white. By trim colors, I mean the accent at the front – and you can actually customize them with a simple snap-on snap-off mechanism. You can even 3D print some other designs too.

The MasterBox Lite 5 is priced at only RM225 too – which is actually pretty good.
