Cooler Master Centurion 531 (RC 531) Case Review

Former staff writer    -   July 21, 2005


Conclusion

Overall the Centurion 531 is a good case, but not comparable to higher-end Coolermaster cases such as the Wavemaster, but for the price one can not go wrong. The Centurion 531 does come with plenty of good features such as the toolless drive installation, an air duct, left and right removable side panels and is relatively cheap but there are a few problems which will keep some buyers away. The drive bay cover, sideways hard drive rack, ineffective expansion card clip, slippery feet and no cover for the top I/O panel are some of the major ones. All in all, the Coolermaster has done a great job on the Centurion 531.
