Cooler Master Announces The Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5 RGB

Cooler Master is one of the more more well-known respectable brands in the PC hardware market. The Taiwanese company has been pushing out some excellent cases especially since the dawn of their “Master” branding lineup of peripherals and hardware. The company has stuck true to its “Make It Yours” slogan and seems to be showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Recently, Cooler Master has announced a new variant of their MasterBox Lite 5, this time Cooler Master has bundled some RGB goodness into the package. The original case without RGB scored an excellent 7.5/10 in our tests, and being a budget-conscious case, I personally think it does need some of that classy RGB flair for it to stand out in 2017. The budget-conscious case not only impressed us for its good cable management, but it also impressed us for its presentation of showcasing your internal hardware. For some flair, the Cooler Master Masterbox 5 Lite comes with three RGB fans, three customizable trims along with excellent dark transparent plastic panels on the front and side for some great builds.

Regarding RGB flexibility with the included fans, you’re pretty much covered. Cooler Master says:

The case comes standard with the 1-to-3 RGB Splitter Cable and four 4-pin male to male adapters. These are certified compatible with ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE and ASRock motherboards. To have full control of the RGB fans, the RGB LED Controller or compatible motherboard is required.

Cooler Master has confirmed the pricing for Malaysia in an email where they have announced the Cooler Master Masterbox 5 Lite to retail at RM399 which translates to $70 in the US. If you’re keen to pickup the case for yourself, be sure to check out our review at the link below.
