Cooler Master has announced the local availability of the MasterCase Pro 6, the newest addition to its MasterCase series of modular chassis. Its latest mid-tower case is a close cousin of the MasterCase Pro 5, and features the same FreeForm modular system that includes support for multiple interior and exterior layouts.

But while other cases in the series like the MasterCase Pro 3 are characterized by mesh panels and a faceted body, the MasterCase Pro 5 stands out with a more elegant design.

For one, all the panels are smooth and flush, a departure from the generous mesh inclusions on the other models. The front I/O panel is even hidden by a cover that blends into the top panel for a more seamless look.

According to Cooler Master, it went for this more minimalist approach to make the case more suitable for use in both gaming and office setups. The MasterCase Pro 5 wasn’t designed to jump out at you. Instead, it’d much rather subtly complement your existing arrangement.

A soft red LED glow emanates from the bottom of the case (matched with a 140mm red LED rear fan), so the case isn’t completely boring either.

In order to mitigate concerns about air flow, Cooler Master has included thin vents on the four corners of the case for ventilation. In addition, the top and front panels can pop out further to create more vents in the space between the panels and the chassis frame and increase air flow.

You can install up to two 280mm radiators at the front and top for more robust cooling.

As a member of the MasterCase series, the Pro 6’s frame can also be customized with modular parts for different mounting layouts. For instance, the SSD cage can be mounted in four different locations, and there is an interior partition panel for isolating the power supply and cables for a cleaner look.

In total, you’ll find room for up to seven drives, or two SSDs and a mix of five SSDs and HDDs.

Finally, you won’t have to worry about fitting in your components as the case will take CPU coolers up to 190mm tall and graphics cards up to 412mm in length (without the 3.5-inch HDD cage).

The MasterCase Pro 6 is available now at SGD 249.
