About the Mastercase Pro 3…

Just what difference does an ATX and mATX apart from lesser PCIe slots? Would you use all seven (or most) slots in a typical ATX form factor?

That’s the sentence you’ll probably use if you seriously plan on a mATX case. But the question is: Just how many mATX cases are out there! And if it is justified? A lot depends on the user, his build, and future plans. In most cases, we wouldn’t need an ATX form factor but we still get it. Mostly it is because of the commonly available set of motherboards and cases.

When I look at the Mastercase Pro 3, it is very difficult for me not to mistake it as an ATX form factor case. The height of the case itself makes that impression. So you’ll imagine that it will have a good deal of expansion options. Cooler Master also will require sticking to its “Mastercase” theme. While I am not too sold on the idea that its modularity is geared towards modders, the quality of the Mastercase is rock solid. Even among the modders I know locally, they admit that Mastercase is so strong that it is difficult to cut and mod. In a way, it speaks of its build quality. That was never a problem with most Cooler Master mid-end steel cases.

Packaging, Contents and Specifications

The packaging for this case is no different from Mastercase Pro 5 which was reviewed earlier.

The accessories box is no different, except 5 version came with a radiator support for the front panel.

Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P SFF PC Case Review

The Cooler Master NR200P is a very interesting SSF PC case. It provides for motherboards in mini-ITX/ mini DTX layout, a layout which maintains the vertical length of the mini ITX while providing a longer width. Along with the SFX/ SFX-L spec power supplies, this case is to provide some interesting configuration options. miniITX cases come with some expected compromises. But with advancements in design from processors, chips all the way to layout and form factor specs, it reduces that compromise significantly.  In the end, we will see cases like these.
