    Cooler Master introduced last week a new mid tower chassis - Gladiator 600 (RC-600). The RC-600 is a symbiosis between Cooler Master RC-690 and CM Centurion 5, it shares the RC-690 inside design with PSU situated at the bottom of the case, and the clean, elegant all black exterior of Centurion 5. The mid-tower case ships with a front mounted 120 mm blue LED fan and a single top mounted 140 mm case fan. A total of five 120 mm fans can be installed, two more on the side panel and one at the back. Inside the case there are these little tweaks that only Cooler Master products can offer, such as the big hole around the processor socket that allows for easy CPU cooler installation, as well as the cable management system for quick cable routing. You can visit the Cooler Master RC-600 product page here, for the rest of the info.

    I klicked the source side. May have overlooked something, checking right now..
    Ah, I see. Well, looks pretty much standard to me.

    Not bad, I never liked the 590 outside, just looked to bland. This looks a bit better, but still a little too far on the normal side, but should be a great case at a great price.

    Personally, I like the looks of this case and many of Cooler Master's other simpler design. I would rather have a simpler style case than a flashy one with a lot of lights and windows and such that some other enthusiasts like.

    Oh I agree, I love my CM 690, it stands out just enough. But the 590 looks like your basic Dell case or something. I like just little accents and such, granted I now have UV lights, but thats because I like seeing my WC lines all lit up.

    Should be same length. My cooler would go 1 slot down and hit the HDD cages, seeing the stock cooler in the picture barely fits. Must be a bit shorter like you said.

    Good though that they provide a picture, would be a nasty surprise when you start building a system.
