Conclusion:

Overall, the Centurion 5 II is a great case from CoolerMaster. It packs many great features into one neat box. The case brings in visual variety through the red interior, which adds a nice touch not seen in many (if any) other cases. It also comes with two LED fans that aren't blue for once.  The features include certain common items regularly seen on other cases - a heatsink hole in the motherboard tray and a bottom mounted PSU. The Centurion 5 II does include other nice features like the tool-less solutions, which require literally no tools for installation unlike some others. The rear expansion tool-less solution is slightly cumbersome with expansion devices that have covers and the case's wire management capacity wasn't as good as it could have been.  A few more holes in the motherboard tray would have gone a long way.  This case definitely delivers when it comes to hard drive capacity.  It supports up to five hard drives -  a plus for those of us with many drives. So with all these great features, what does the case retail for? Well, a Centurion 5 II black with side panel windows (if you can find it) retails for around $50, which definitely isn't bad.  However, if you're looking for this awesome red interior it is appears to not be available yet.  If you're interested in the red or otherwise just love the case, you should definitely go hunt for the CoolerMaster Centurion 5 II when this model hits the market!

 

Pros:

  • Awesome red interior
  • Supports five hard disk drives
  • Includes two fans; supports up to two more fans
  • Side panel window
  • Tool-less solutions
  • Finally, no blue LEDs! Red LED fans

 

Cons:

  • Expansion slot tool-less solutions can get hung up on cards with covers
  • Could do better with wire management
