Cooler Master's New Casings

The new Cooler Master Cavalier series comes with a unique curved front bezel design which looks a little like the Wave Master. What's new is that it now comes with an analog dial built into the bottom section of the case that tells you the audio sound pressure. Similar to the CMStacker, it also features front USB, FireWire and audio connectors. For those who prefer something less fancy, they can also opt to purchase the Cavalier without the analog dial at a lower price.

Those who prefer something for their home's living room, the Cooler Master Cavalier 2 (top) and Cavalier 4 (middle) will match your Hi-Fi with its traditional horizontal desktop design. It comes with two 5.25-inch bays, three 3.5-inch bays and a front I/O panel for USB 2.0, FireWire, MIC and headphones.

The new Centurion 5 is a lower cost casing which comes with an aluminum bezel and a normal steel chassis. No doubt it will be heavier than normal aluminum casings, it is also less expensive while still maintaining that aluminum look and feel. The front bezel comes with a perforated screen that allows for enhanced airflow and cooling. Similar to their other casing designs, the Centurion 5 requires absolutely no tools for assembly/disassembly.

Cooler Master also displayed how the Wave Master could be repainted to give it that smooth colored finish. These casings were spray painted with multiple layers and given the same paint treatment as those performed in a car body shop.
