There were days when CPU cases looked like metal cabinets found in warehouses that did the work but failed miserably when it came to aesthetics. Looking at current generation designs by Cooler Master they resemble more like premium hi-fi audio trays with Christmas lights. They are meant to show-off and no longer kept under the table.
Taking a notch higher is the gaming editions, Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 and Lite 3.1TG series not only come with three different lighting (RGB) but also has an added protection with tempered glass side panel.
“Tempered glass is our go-to material when designing cases which allow users to show off their build,” said Rick Chen, Case Product Manager. “With the use of tempered glass, builders will not have to worry about scratches marring the aesthetics of their valued build.”
Despite their demure appeal, the can fit huge air coolers up to 158mm tall in the Lite 3.1 TG and 160mm tall in the Lite 5 and accommodate 120mm fans.
Themes can be changed with the three included trims – Red, White and Black.
Pricing & Availability
The MasterBox Lite 5 RGB and MasterBox Lite 3.1 TG are both now available in Singapore, priced at RM 299 and RM 199 respectively.
