PC accessories vendor Cooler Master has refocused its business to “break new ground in the way PCs are designed, made, bought and used”. The firm has kicked off a drive to rekindle the ‘maker spirit’ in its products and community – by unveiling a customisable MasterCase and a new ‘Make It Yours’ slogan – at the Computex 2015 trade show in Taipei.Cooler Master describes the MasterCase, due to launch this August, as ‘the world’s first mid-sized modular tower with exterior expandability’. It’s the start of a new family of PC cases, and came about following a concept.
“The MasterConcept and MasterCase break new ground in the way PCs are designed, made, bought and used. Fundamental to this reimagining is FreeForm. Cooler Master wants users to have absolute control over how their case looks and functions,” the firm said in a statement.”So FreeForm provides options to adjust the case exterior via the replacement of panels and doors, while also offering unparalleled flexibility for a mid-sized case in terms of interior layout.”Computex 2015 will see Cooler Master debut the MasterCase 5, a 460mm tall modular tower that comes in three iterations: MasterCase 5, MasterCase Pro 5 and MasterCase Maker 5.Users can choose from the MasterCase 5’s dual top handles and standard door, the MasterCase Pro 5’s elevated mesh top cover, or the lines, top cover and open-vent front door of the MasterCase Maker 5.In the MasterCase, FreeForm allows a single case to support a range of configurations, enabling users to upgrade rather than replace their case and system. Through a clip-and click panel, FreeForm also lets users vertically adjust or entirely remove drive cages, allowing for multiple system configurations like home servers, water-cooled workstations, or gaming rigs with dual-slot extra-long graphics cards.
