CM’s Premium SL600M PC Chassis…
Almost every manufacturer have premium PC cases. Cooler Master SL600M shuffled its internals with some features while maintaining that conventional design externally. We all know premiums cases are not supposed to be just another case. Internally, SL600M is not just another case.
The Cooler Master SL600M takes the air in from the base. What’s more, is that the power supply is mounted internally towards the front panel with a routing PSU adapter towards the rear. CM also managed to have a workaround for an additional horizontal PCIe holder by enabling the PCIe slots to be remounted horizontally. So you have to wonder how good a case can be with so many radical changes.
Packaging and Contents
The packaging is pretty standard. Nothing new here. It would be preferable to see some added protection for full glass sidepanel.
Apart from getting the usual screws and cable ties, you go get a cleaning cloth and a USB cable to flash the firmware on the SL600M’s fan controller.
