Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Mid-Tower Case

Page: 4/4

Conclusion

I have a few negative thoughts, and a lot of positive thoughts on this case. One bad thing that really put me down was that in order to remove the front bezel, the CD-Drive must be removed. A lot like most people, my computer is on 24/7, and getting to the filter is a real pain in the neck when you have to shut down and remove the drives, then the bezel. Another complaint I have is the lack of the removable motherboard tray. Other than those 2 things, I love this case, the super bright LED's, tool-free operation, super quiet fans, and a clean looking bezel is definitely a plus in my book.

Another thing I noticed about this case compared to the other Centurion cases are the side panels. On most C5 cases I've seen online, they have various types of panels, I've seen some that have a window panel (which apparently is not sold separately according to CM), and some that only have a rectangular vent. This case has a square vent (3.5" x 4.5") and a blowhole in the location of the CPU heat sink. The thing that questions me is that neither of the web sites that sell this case give you that option to choose the type of panel you want, or maybe its just based on the year or month the case was produced in

Overall, I'm quite happy with this case, and I highly recommend it to anyone who's in a market for a cheap, easy to work with, and stylish case.

Pros:

  • Stylish
  • Easy to work with
  • Tool-Free Mechanisms
  • Cheap
  • Quiet Fans
  • Quiet Case Overall

Cons:

  • Motherboard tray not removable
  • Difficult to remove front bezel
