Micronics Master M400 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Micronics Master M400 Mid-Tower Chassis




The front of the M400 is where the front I/O panel is found at the top, and shiny plastic covers the majority of the front. In one of the optical bays is a window, which is removable, and at this time, all we see is the Micronics logo painted on the bezel, below it. The angles used sets the front bezel back from the outer edges, which is much easier to see from the side.





The front I/O panel is set in a metal plate with a brushed finish. To the left are the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, with dust covers in place. The backlit power button is in the center and will glow blue once powered. On the right are the fan speed button, the LED button, 3.5mm jacks with dust covers in place, and the small reset button in the corner.




The top of the chassis is shaped similarly to the front, where the center section is set back from the angled ends, which are the highest points on the chassis. The center of the top cover has a mesh panel, but on the inside is also backed with a foam dust filter as well.




From the side, we see that the entire steel portion of the chassis is covered with tempered glass for a full view inside of the case. The top cover stands taller, than the front is, in thickness, but in the front is also where we see the mesh areas to allow the intake fans a path for fresh air.




The back of the chassis shows the area at the top, where you grab, to remove the top panel, above where the rear I/O and 120mm adjustable exhaust fan reside. The chassis has seven expansion slots in the typical area, but is also built for vertical GPU mounting, and has the extra slots to support it. That leaves the large hole at the bottom, which is filled by a power supply.




The right side of the chassis is nearly a mirrored view of the left. The shape of the chassis is the same on both sides; there is venting in the front here too. What has changed is that the tempered glass panel has been painted black on the inside, which blocks all things behind it from view when the build is complete.




Underneath of the M400, we see that the chunky feet have large rubber pads stuck to them, and the feet are placed in the outermost corners for the best in stability and footing. The PSU has a removable dust filter, as does the area under the HDD cage, but both are not the easiest to remove without laying the chassis over for access.
