Unboxing The Cooler Master Centurion 6 Chassis
The Centurion 6 mid-tower chassis is the new mainstream offering from Cooler Master, updating its Centurion line of cases. As such, it has a legacy to fulfil by catering for a gaming rig, but without the added heartache of breaking the bank.
It does this by packing in some semi-high-end features, such as: 240mm/120mm radiator support, two front panel USB 3 ports, two included fans (one 120 mm and one 140 mm blue LED) with support for an extra 6 (7 if you replace the front 140mm fan with a 120mm fan), space for 8 hard drives including a removable hard drive cage, tool-less mounting for ODD and HDD’s, and two 3.5 to 2.5″ conversion brackets that can support up to four 2.5″ drives.

The aesthetics are pleasing; especially the slick looking black coat covering most of the case, with the exception being the elegant brushed aluminium trims on the fully meshed front panel. Unfortunately it is not a perfect case as some corners have been cut; namely the inclusion of less than adequate dust filters covering the front panel and bottom PSU fan hole. This, coupled with a front panel that is fully meshed, can make it a veritable dust magnet. Cleaning the front panel will also be a pain, as it can only move only as far as the front panel connectors allow.
Ending on a positive note however, the case did come with a CM Storm & Assassins 3 branded mouse pad. This is a decent quality mouse pad that can easily cost close to, or more than, R100. This, in my opinion, really adds that extra gamer orientated value to the case–regardless of its minor shortfalls and cost cutting. Ultimately the feature list, added value of a quality mouse pad, and the decent aesthetics make it a tough product for the competition to beat. Furthermore, it is a case you can be happy to have housing your PC components.
Based on searches done via online stores in South Africa, the Centurion 6 retails between approximately R800 and R850.
