About the Mastercase Pro 3…

Just what difference does an ATX and mATX apart from lesser PCIe slots? Would you use all seven (or most) slots in a typical ATX formfactor?

That’s the sentence you’ll probably use if you seriously plan on an mATX case. But the question is: Just how many mATX cases are out there! And if it is justified? A lot depends on the user, his build, and future plans. In most cases, we wouldn’t need an ATX form factor but we still get it. Mostly it is because of the commonly available set of motherboards and cases.

When I look at the Mastercase Pro 3, its very difficult for me not to mistaken it as an ATX form factor case. The height of the case itself makes that impression. So you’ll imagine that it will have a good deal of expansion options. Cooler Master also will require sticking to its “Mastercase” theme. While I am not too sold on the idea that its modularity is geared towards modders, the quality of the Mastercase is rock solid. Even among the modders I know locally, they admit that Mastercase is so strong that it is difficult to cut and mod. In a way, its speaks for its build quality. That was never a problem with most Cooler Master mid end steel cases.
