Cooler Master’s MasterMaker 5 is a mind-tower ATX case designed to be very modder friendly with its modular approach. Cooler Master calls this the FreeForm modular system and it basically means users can readily swap components in and out of the case or add extras depending on their needs without taking out a rivet with a drill or cutting metal. Since various users have different components, this free-form modularity makes the MasterMaker 5 highly compatible with more components than typical mid-tower offerings. More information is available below from the official press release:
Chino, USA – Cooler Master, a leader in design and manufacturing computer components and peripherals, today announced the availability of the MasterCase Maker 5, a mid-sized modular tower with exterior expandability, made possible with accessories purchased separately.

Upgrade Your PC Inside Out with the FreeForm™ Modular System
Cooler Master wants users to have absolute control over how their case looks and functions. FreeForm provides options to not only adjust the case exterior, but also offers interior layout flexibility in a mid-sized case.In the MasterCase Maker 5, FreeForm allows a single case to support a host of different configurations, enabling users to upgrade rather than replace their case and system. Through a unique Clip-and-Click panel, FreeForm lets users adjust vertically or remove the drive cages entirely. This flexibility allows building multiple system configurations like home servers, water-cooled workstations, or gaming rigs with dual-slot extra-long graphics cards using one single case.
The MasterCase Maker 5 comes with an upgraded I/O panel that provides four USB ports, including USB 3.0 Type C, and additional buttons for LED strip and fan speed control. The top and front door panels fit snugly with a magnetic grip, the top panel also includes a closed paneling allowing the freedom to choose to cover the top or ensure airflow through the top mesh. The front panels are padded to suppress sound and deliver the right balance between noise and airflow.
