Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t Review

Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5tCooler Master’s MasterCase Maker 5t case is the latest flagship mid-tower addition to the company’s MasterCase series. With a design that marries the original full-tower CM Storm Trooper/Stryker with the MasterCase 5, the new MasterCase Maker 5t is equipped with a top handle and is compatible with Cooler Master’s FreeForm modular system. This means that like other cases in the MasterCase series lineup, the MasterCase Maker 5t can upgrade parts incrementally, swap components with other cases from the same family and can easily replace some features it necessary, making it a perfect case modding platform to personalize. Priced at $249, the MasterCase Maker 5t comes with 5mm-thick tempered glass side panels on both sides and features a built-in fan and LED controller at the front.

As the flagship mid-tower case, the MasterCase Maker 5t enjoys a substantially upgraded packaging as well. No brown box here. Instead it uses a full-tower sized full-color carton with premium gray polystyrene foam padding inside which is much denser than typical case foam protection.

The accessories are housed in a tin with a foam padded underside which is also magnetic so it can actually be stored in the MasterCase Maker 5t itself. The documentation and a micro-fiber wipe-cloth can also be found in the same padding nook. Instead of a plastic cover, a foam sheet provides additional protection to the case.

The manual is a simple fold-out sheet illustrating the various combinations and flexible functions available with the MasterCase Maker 5t. The accessories inside the tin come pre-sorted and marked for easier storage.
