Cooler Master Centurion 6 Review

Introduction


I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing the review sample.


The Centurion series was one of the most successful case families for Cooler Master. These cases were one of the reasons for the rise of the brand as a whole and offered superb features for the price. Cooler Master is now rebooting the series with the Centurion 6 case. It is available in all black or with a silver trim. We will take a look at the latter today.

Packaging


We got our sample inside a brown cardboard box without much writing. It, interestingly enough, states that this is a sample and not for resale. Those buying the case will get a fully colored package instead. The case is held in place by two fairly compact spacers. A plastic bag further protects the Centurion 6 from scratches and fingerprints.

You will get all black screws and golden motherboard stand-offs with the chassis. Cooler Master also included four rails for two hard drives, which is not nearly enough to fill the chassis with drives. You will find two more pairs of rails within the case as these are stuck to two 2.5" trays, which makes for a total of four 3.5" drives. A good number of zip ties, a plastic lock for peripherals, and a manual complete the extras.
