MSI Announces Creator 400M Case for Workstation Builds

MSI today released the Creator 400M case targeted at creator-, quasi-workstation, and workstation builds. This E-ATX tower type case features a sober design language with tinted tempered glass, matte black steel, and a front ornament design that MSI claims conforms to da Vinci's Golden Ratio when viewed from the top-left 3-quarter angle. Although it features glass, the case is designed to offer low noise using an industry-first triple-laminated 5.38 mm thick tempered glass. The front panel opens up as a door to reveal the front fan intakes, and a 5.25-inch drive bay.

Inside, the MSI Creator 400M offers vast amounts of room for motherboards that are E-ATX or smaller, and all of the company's MEG Creation and Creator lines of motherboards are guaranteed to fit. The case features a horizontally-partitioned layout, with the top compartment serving room for graphics cards up to 45 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 18 cm in height. The bottom compartment features a large PSU bay with room for up to 18 cm long PSUs. Storage options include two each of 3.5-inch bays and 2.5-inch mounts; besides the 5.25-inch bay. Ventilation includes three 140 mm front intakes (two 140 mm fans included), and a 140 mm rear exhaust (a 140 mm fan included). You can mount a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator along the front. Front panel connectivity includes a USB 3.2 type-C port, two USB 3.2 type-A ports, two USB 2.0 type-A ports, and HDA jacks. The case measures 550 mm x 235 mm x 503 mm (DxWxH), dry weighing 7.7 kg. The company didn't reveal pricing.
