Full PSU cover with two SDD mounting points. This case have total of 4 SDD mounting points beside two 3.5 HDD mounting bays, but comes along with only one SDD mounting plate. So you can only mount one SDD along with two HDDs at any one of the four provided places. At least two mounting plates should be provided.

Three Cooler Master 120mm RGB LED fans installed in the front with two wires set coming out of each fan. One for RGB LED connection và second is standard 3-pin fan hâm mộ connector.

The 3-Pin header wire from each fan are too short in length (about 8 inch from front panel) và I was able to connect only one fan directly khổng lồ my motherboard on lớn a fan header close lớn 24-pin ATX connector. Rest two fans were connected using my own 3-pin fan hâm mộ extension cables. Case comes with a molex khổng lồ 3 x 3-pin tín đồ connector cable, but this will make the fans lớn run at max RPM all the time.

The DarkMirror front panel is made from Plexiglas & comes off easily for mentainence as one have to vị a lot of dust cleaning with this case. The air inlet for all three fans in front is a small opening at the bottom of the front panel which have a removable filter mesh. But with such a small inlet I am sure if this filter is not cleaned regularly it may result in higher system temperature.

Pros

Great PriceNice LooksEasy hardware installationFour fans including 3 x RGB Fans Nice Side tempered glass panel Transparent Dark front panel1 to 3 RGB splitter with major motherboards RGB lighting compatibility.

Cons

Only one SDD mounting platRGB fans have very short 3-pin wires. Included molex to lớn 3 x fan hâm mộ cable which keep fan hâm mộ spinning at max all the time. Small air inlet for all three fansWill require lot of duct cleaning

Cooler Master MASTERBOX LITE 5 RGB is aimed for game thủ PC build at the budget with a price tag of INR 5K. Considering the looks, RGB fans & design this case is winner for this price segment.

There are few places in the case where we can clearly see the price cutting in action, lớn bring the case for a budget price. Like the metal sheet used is little thinner than other Master series cases, but still we didn"t found any compromise in case rigidness or frame stability. The RGB fans wire are too short for all of them to be connected to lớn motherboard headers. I request Cooler Master to lớn increase the 3-pin fan wire length or provide tín đồ extension cables along.

The RGB fans are very quiet & provide good air flow. But due lớn shorter wires & unavailability of tín đồ extension cables , one have to lớn power the fan via provided molex lớn 3 x 3-pin fan connector cable, which will make the fans to run at max RPM & may result in some fan noise.

The tempered glass & front dark Plexiglas panel with three fan hâm mộ air inlet makes this case a dust magnet & need lot of duct cleaning.

So at conclusion, we lượt thích to say that Cooler Master MASTERBOX LITE 5 RGB case is a great option for budget PC build with super good price and looks, worthy of our PC TeK nhận xét Value Award.
