After the Centurion 5 in 2004, Cooler Master is rebooting the Centurion series with the 6th edition of the chassis. The series has always been known for offering excellent quality and good features for a small price. Will the Centurion 6 make its predecessors proud, or will it just in cash on the name?

Benchmark Scores I once had +100 dorfs in DF, so yeah pretty great
Hum hum. Sort of nice. I would so make a metal cover for the top fan bays if I got this case though. It should be included imo. My home is pretty dusty, so it would get crazy fast with those giant holes. It was the same with the Fractal Design Core 3000 I had.

Cases this size often look like they'll fit a 240mm or 280mm radiator in the top but in practice you end up installing the fans on the outside of the case, having to be careful with the 8-Pin CPU power cable, trimming bits off fans or VRM heatsinks to make things fit. If the spacing in this is the same as the CM 692 Dominator it'll be fine but it looks like there's clearance for fans or a radiator, not both as is so often the case.
