Inside the MasterCase 5
Starting off the interior shots, we first removed the bezel. The front is completely free and the entire thing can be rinsed to clean it, and along with the front I/O staying on the chassis, we can also see the one intake fan that the MasterCase 5 ships with, rather than the pair that the Pro 5 offers.
Inside of the chassis, we find that they have the wiring not only tended to in a trick wire track in the back, but it is also run through a grommet in the floor to keep it from moving about. Looking into the drive bays, we located the hardware box that has all sorts of goodies in it.
The MasterCase 5 offers a pair of 5.25" bays with tool-free locks on this side, and the use of screws needed on the back. The nice thing about these is that they can also be removed to allow for more radiator to be fitted in the front of the chassis.
Below the ODD bays we find only two 3.5" drive trays in this small cage. This cage can be adjusted to any position in the rack as well as being removable all together, again to allow for water cooling needs.
The top of the chassis offers one large rectangular hole in it. The metal plate, once removed, makes installing fans a breeze, but then cleaning the filter will require a lot of work after that. We will also show what the Pro 5 offers, but that comes later.
The motherboard tray offers a large access hole and room for ATX, Micro-ATX, or Mini-ITX motherboards with five wire management holes around it. Something to note though, there is a lack of wire tie points outside of the pair offered for the 8-pin lead.
