Cooler Master adds gaming bling to the MasterCase Maker 5t

The 't' is for bargain... no, wait, it's actually for tempered glass.

Cooler Master has added a new case to its modular MasterCase lineup. The Maker 5t features aggressive red highlights on the external chassis, and a bold all-red interior - beautifully shown off by a tempered glass side panel.

Lake the rest of the Maker line, the case it built for modular expansion. Every panel is designed to be removed and replaced, thought the stock build is rather striking, complete with a rubber-coated carry-handle and built-in red LEDs. Inside, depending on how you configure the internals, there's room for six fans and an impressive ten HDDs, and an included graphics card holder can handle even the largest and heaviest of cards. There's also a fan controller, a bracket for liquid cooling, and a light controller.

There are seven expansion slots, two 5.25in drive bays - a rarity these days - and out of the box two 3.5in bays, and two plus two 2.5in bays. Connectivity is via an impressive four USB3 ports (making this a great case for VR), and HD audio ports, while stock cooling is handled by two 140mm fans in the front panel and a single rear 140mm exhaust.

Clearance is pretty impressive, too - there's room for a 190mm CPU cooler, a 200mm PSU, and graphics cards up to 412mm (if you move the HDD cage). It's 296mm with the cage at stock.

The Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t is available now for $289 - expensive, but it certainly looks worth it.
