Package and Specifications

Package: (Artwork Provided by Cooler Master)

On the front of the package you can see that Cooler Master captured a great image of the Chassis. The special note here is that the case can transform into a test bench, which is one of the unique features we will go over as we continue with this review.

For this panel of the package, Cooler Master goes into detail on the features and function. The features listed here of this Case/Test Bench are clear and descriptive.

The most important panel we would like to cover is the specification side. This will give the consumer real “at a glance” information for planning your hardware and components.
