MasterCase Maker 5t Key Features
Dual-Tone Red and Black Finish
The CoolerMaster MasterCase Maker 5t goes in line with most gaming-themed hardware today that uses the same ‘gaming’ color theme of black and red. CoolerMaster uses a special red paint with sparkling flakes for the chassis, perfect for a gaming themed build.
Two Tempered Glass Panels
Tempered glass side panels are the mainstream for enthusiast builds today that allows you to show your prized hardware inside with clarity and beauty. The tempered glass panels of the MasterCase Maker 5t are tinted but allow just enough light to showcase whatever is glowing inside the chassis without showing too much of the unnecessary stuff. The thick panes also come with key locks.
Red LED Lighting
The MasterCase Maker 5t feature red LED lighting to complete a street-racing glow like a sports car. The included magnetic red LED strip can be placed anywhere in the chassis.
Front Panel with Fan and Lighting Control
The I/O ports on the front panel of the 5t allows you to control both fans and lighting of the chassis. The board can control up to four LED strips and six case fans with settings for 12V for high and 7V for low. LED lighting effects include continuous and breathing effects.
Rubber Grip Handle
The MasterCase Maker 5t has a rubber grip handle on top for you to hold on to the case with better structural support. The handle looks similar to CoolerMaster older case model Storm Trooper chassis.
