I am going to move my completed MasterCase 5 build to a Maker 5, once I swap out the red LEDs in the I/O panel for some orange or blue/violet ones. I may leave the power LED red. I am also going to go to a custom water loop at the same time. Still not sure of the final parts list, but this is not a must build project. Have to work on an m-ATX build first.
So why am I moving to the Maker 5? Well my posts in the past have complained about the lack of availability of the Maker 5 I/O panel made to fit the Mastercase 5. Now that I have the Maker 5 in hand, I can see just how much work that would be, there are several differences in the size. It is not just the cover panel, So if I wanted to upgrade, the easiest would be to just get the whole front panel section door and all. I also thought the door would interfere with an optical drive tray placed in the top slot, but I have decided to go sans optical drive when I move it all over. I will be keeping the NZXT Aperture-M in the top slot.
Then the plan is to take apart the entire Mastercase 5 rivets and all and paint it white so that my daughter can use it to replace her oversized NZXT 820 White case. Now if I could convince Cooler Master to at least in the Mastercase line make both black and white cases available and stop with the RED
