The Cooler Master USP 100 Mid Tower Case

I know you caught a glimpse at it under the plastic, but here is all the red I was talking about earlier. Quite a bold and flashy look for a mid tower! This should make the red team buyers happy, but there is no reason the green team can't disguise their PC as a sort of "unexpected sleeper". As Cooler Master has done with many others, the only naming is in the simple brushed metal on black plaque stuck to the front of the chassis.

Spinning the USP 100 to the left, we have the removable panel with a hand grip in the back and ventilation stamped out of the panel. The top area is just for passive ventilation, while the lower section provides mounting holes for an 80mm, 90mm or 120mm fan to be added later if you choose to.

From the back you can see that you get just the basics; no water pass-through holes or added controller slots here. The typical rear I/O section flanks the exhaust fan area. Again, this fan is optional. These are just above the seven expansion slots and just below is a look at the exhausting side of the included PSU.

The opposing side panel offers the same hand grip for easy removal, but this time the panel is completely solid.

Above all the bright red mesh, there is a raised plastic section mounted on the top of the chassis. This makes for a little storage cubby and allows a place for Cooler Master to install the front I/O connections. In this case it is just two USB 2.0 ports and front panel audio connections. On the far right you will see the HDD activity light. Strangely, there's no power light, though.
