Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 3 Micro-ATX Tower Chassis
The MasterCase Pro 3 looks much like the earlier cases in this series. The swept back sides on the front bezel on either side of the steel mesh, even the laid back top to offer a handle as well as a location for the front I/O panel.
The front I/O panel offers less than we see on most, but sometimes less is more. This is an instance where offering the HDD LED, a USB 3.0 port, the HD Audio jacks above the power button, another USB 3.0 port, and a tiny reset button helps keep a smooth and simpler look.
Above the front I/O panel is a large access for your hand to fit and carry the MasterCase Pro 3. Behind that is a long section, which at this time is still on the chassis, and is also covered with a removable plastic top cover, which is magnetically held into place.
There is a slot at the beck edge that allows you to get a fingernail under the cover to lift it up and off the chassis. Under the cover, we find the chassis sports a full mesh panel in this area, and can be used in either configuration.
Looking at the MasterCase Pro 3, from the left side, we first notice the huge window, with the least amount of steel around it as possible. The panel meets the top and the front square to them, the top of the chassis thins down as you move towards the back, and captured thumbscrews hold this panel in place.
The back starts by offering a wide hole along the top, which allows another access point to carry this chassis. There is the rear I/O slot, and the 120mm or 140mm fan can be adjusted in height when mounted. We then run into the five expansion slots and some passive ventilation before we get down to the PSU mounting bracket, allowing the PSU to slide in from the back of the chassis.
The right side of this chassis is identical to the left side, but of course, there is no window on this side. Again, the lines are tight around the panel, and just like the other panel and the PSU mounting plate, captured thumbscrews are used, so you do not lose or misplace them.
Under the MasterCase Pro 3, we find thin feet applied to the large legs that support this chassis at the front and back of the chassis. Near the front leg, along the bottom, we find tabs which help hold in the removable HDD cage, and at the back is a large removable dust filter to keep the PSU fan clean.
