Cooler Master Launches the MasterCase

Cooler Master is excited to announce the launch of the MasterCase, the world's first mid-sized modular tower with exterior expandability. The MasterCase heralds a new family of cases that offer unparalleled control over form and function. It draws inspiration from the MasterConcept, a revolutionary concept case developed at Cooler Master Headquarters in Taipei.

"The MasterConcept represents a vision that every person's PC case should be unique, and is a first step in a fundamental reimagining of our relationship with our fans and supporters," said PS Tang, Vice President, Cooler Master. "Inspired by the MasterConcept's revolutionary approach to interior and exterior modularity, the MasterCase represents the crest of this new wave of case technology."
Cooler Master's FreeForm Modular System
The MasterConcept and MasterCase break new ground in the way PCs are designed, made, bought and used. Fundamental to this reimagining is FreeForm. Cooler Master wants users to have absolute 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 unparalleled flexibility for a mid-sized case in terms of interior layout.

Computex 2015 will see Cooler Master debut the MasterCase 5, a 460mm-tall modular tower that comes in three distinct iterations: MasterCase 5, MasterCase Pro 5 and MasterCase Maker 5.

Users can choose from the MasterCase 5's dual top handles and standard door, the MasterCase Pro 5's elevated mesh top cover, or the sleek lines, solid top cover and brooding, open-vent front door of the MasterCase Maker 5.

In the MasterCase, FreeForm allows a single case to support a host of different configurations, enabling users to upgrade rather than replace their case and system. Through a unique clip-and click panel, FreeForm also lets users vertically 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 graphics cards.

Availability in the EU: August 2015.

Very interesting case, looks like CM took a lot of design cues from NZXT, Fractal and other competing cases to create this one customisable case. This is much more practical than their previous beast of HAF Stacker case.

pay attention antec......and learn
Oddly enough this reminds me of the old Antec twelve hundred/ nine hundred cases in terms of styling (just.. a lot better), and very much P180/P190 in terms of internal layouts

Nice Case...
Very great design and modularity.
I think the thermaltake core series of cases has nudged the industry towards modular cases...

Every case should have removable HDD cages and 5.25" cage because buying HDD cage to put into two 5.25" slots is pointless and 5.25" cage is not very popular these days because:
-if I want Bluray ODD I would probably buy external Bluray ODD which is a lot more portable
-ODD are not used a lot these days because of the advent of USB devices
-the space they take could be used to house a HDD cage

My thinking exactly,......

I even see some similarities with the Antec Signature S10 that everyone was trashing in an earlier thread,...

The S10 for me is too small for an "ultimate PC case", but yeah, much the same idea with different styling.
