Cooler Master MasterBox 5 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Hardware & Documentation




Rather than fan screws, in the front of the chassis, Cooler Master uses a push pin system. They also send seven standoffs and a socket to go along with the pair of helper standoffs already on the tray. The hex head screws mount the motherboard and the PSU, while the M3 screws are used for 2.5" drive mounting. As for the 3.5" drives, they lock into the tray with pins and are tool-free.





There are ten wire ties offered along with the MasterBox 5 to ensure the wiring can be tended to and run cleanly. There is also a Kensington lock loop supplied, as well as the Molex to 3-pin fan power adapter.




The manual is small but unfolds to show everything you need to know about this chassis and the build process. There is also an insert that accompanies the manual, which explains what Cooler Master will cover for the term of two years.




These three sections of the manual are likely the handiest to help wrap your head around the options contained in this layout. The top shows the locations of the SSD plate, the HDD rack, and the PSU cover. In the middle, we are shown the video card support and motherboard support, while at the bottom, Cooler Master addresses the cooling options.
