Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 Review

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 6 ReviewDespite the higher number in the name, the MasterCase Pro 6 sits behind the MasterCase Maker 5t since the Maker line is Cooler Master’s current flagship model with the MasterCase right in the middle and the MasterBox bringing up the rear. The MasterCase Pro 6 however, brings some new features to the table that were not in the MasterCase Pro 5, namely a magnetic top cover and front door panel that is a lot flatter but is more conducively flexible to airflow than previous model designs without an immediately obvious peppering of ventilation holes on its surface. Continuing their “Make it Yours” ethos, Cooler Master’s MasterCase Pro 6 has an ingenious way of using magnets to move these panels into place while making it easy to move and remove for modification purposes.

Cooler Master has put much thought on the MasterCase Pro 6 packaging as it can be conveniently brought out of the box with its cloth cover bag. Users simply need to pull it out via the bag handles. Inside the bag, the case itself is covered in more foam covering in the form of foam pads on each side and a foam sheet wrap. The pads are tied in place so as not to come off at all during handling. This is probably the most comprehensively packed cases I have seen and I have reviewed hundreds of cases over the years.

While the documentation sheet is right on top of the foam package as the user opens the box, the accessories are tucked inside the case itself in one of the drive trays. These accessory pieces are inside a cardboard box unlike the MasterCase Maker 5t which has a magnetic metal housing for its accessories.

Each pack contains the following:

  • 1x side-panel lock bracket
  • 1x #6 32*5 screw for lock bracket
  • 4x #6 32-29 screw for front fans
  • 1x stand-off socket adapter
  • 7x motherboard tray stand-off
  • 5x #6 32*10 HDD cage screws
  • 2x #6 32*6 HDD cage screws
  • 15x #6 32*5 PSU/Fan Cage/Motherboard screws
  • 10x cable management zip ties
  • 4x M3*5 ODD screws
  • 1x fan cage bracket
  • 8x Ø5*10 top fan screws
  • 20x M3*4 2.5” SSD screws
  • 3x 3-pin to 4-pin cable adapters
  • 2x Velcro cable management strap
  • 4x m3*6 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 4x Ø3*6 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 4x Ø3*7 screws for fan controller bracket
  • 2x 5.25” bridging connector for fan controller bracket

Other accessories pre-installed inside the case:

  • 3x 140mm 3-pin fan
  • 1x CM StormGuard theft-prevention security tool
