Cooler Master Rolls Out New Cases at CES 2020: MasterBox TD500 Takes Centerstage

Cooler Master rolled out a handful new cases at the 2020 International CES. This include a new high cost-value mid-tower called the MasterBox TD500, available in black and white trims. The case is characterized by a polygonal, asymmetric front panel that beats boring flat surfaces. A large mesh intake covers almost the entire front, from which the case breathes through three 120 mm intake fans. This spot can be used even for a 360 mm radiator. The 3-D design extends to even the precision-milled tempered glass side panel, which defies convention of being flat. Inside is a conventional horizontally-partitioned layout. Available from later this month, the MasterBox TD500 is priced at USD $89.

Next up is the massive MasterBox NR600P, a full-tower designed for workstations, HEDTs, and RGB heathens. The case supports SSI-EEB, E-ATX, and smaller form-factors. It's opaque on all sides, but there are enough vents for a basic positive pressure air-channel. Slated for May 2020, Cooler Master is pricing the case at an inviting $129. Lastly, there are the MasterBox MB311L and 320L ARGB, a pair of roomy micro-ATX gaming cases characterized by large front intakes that are dominated by a pair of RGB fans, and a horizontally-partitioned interior. The MB311L ARGB has a mesh intake, while the MasterBox MB320L ARGB has front intakes along the sides of the front panel, with a mirror-finish transparent panel along the front. Both these cases are slated for Q2-2020, priced at $40 a pop.

That NR600P looks promising, just hoping the reader is plugged into a USB 3.0 port.

Well an interesting design in some respects, but at least the ones with the mesh front can breath, unlike a lot of recent cases, but IMHO, there is absolutely NO excuse for not having a USB-C port on the front I/O.... it is 2020 after all, and the cost of those components have dropped considerably since early last year...no excuse at all on a new case....

Well most "new" stuff isnt really new, just a refresh to get some attention from the press but its all kinda the same shit it has been for years so not suprised its hard to top a good product from some years ago.
Heck GN still has the Silverstone Raven rv02 as on of their best cases in the tests.

It's fine, they'll still sell and life will go on. I finally have a device that uses USB C by the way and my cables have two different ends on them to allow me to plug in, imagine that!
