The range of computer cases available today is large and confusing. Every now and then, a solid, capable case with stylish design comes along that deserves more attention. Made of high-quality aluminum, the Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW provides optimum ventilation to your PC with a unique perforated screen design that maximizes airflow and is also virtually "tool-free". It is designed for easy assembly, cleaning, quick maintenance and upgrades. The enclosure is compatible with both ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards.

The Centurion can accommodate massive storage capacity, with five 5.25" drive bays, and five 3.5" bays (including four hidden and one external) which provide for the installation of CD-ROMs and hard drives. Excellent cooling is provided by the 120mm exhaust fan and the 80mm intake fan, and the chassis is equipped with a side air duct for further ventilation. Easy USB, FireWire, and audio connectivity is provided by two USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, and Microphone and Speaker ports in the front. This is a great case for the do-it-yourselfer who needs a lot of flexibility at a value price!

5 out of 5 eggsLooks great, solidly built, lots of room inside

Pros: Easy to work with. Plenty of drive bays. Cooling works well. No problem installing a large CPU cooler.

Cons: The power on/off switch doesn't feel very robust. I've always been very gentle with it.

Other Thoughts: I built a Windows Server 2003 box in one of these cases in September 2007. I've never had a serious issue with the case. If I need to buy another, I'll consider this brand again without hesitation.

5 out of 5 eggsBest affordable looking case ever!

Pros: Very affordable and a good case by far.

Cons: Some parts in the inside and back are very fragile because of being plastic. Front USB ports became loose after moderate use.

5 out of 5 eggsSturdy

Pros: Keeps everything really cool, excellent airflow. Not for any of those mambi-pambi builders that want a nice light plastic case. Solid. Coolermaster does it again.

Cons: Wish there were more fan slots, but the case is designed to not have many and stay cool so no egg off there

4 out of 5 eggsGood case but dated

Not plastic

I've built 2 machines with this case. the machine I'm writing this review from (built in 2009) and a new machine for a client. for a budget case, this one Shines. the tool-less design offers a really easy build.

Cons: no removable MB panel:
- bit me once when i installed an aftermarket cooler and had to disassemble the whole machine.

Cable management.
- near the top where the PSU mounts there is no gap to slip cables through. my psu isn't modular. those two facts combined made cable management harder than it needed to be.

LGA 115
- my clients build was with an LGA 1155 CPU. the stand off holes in this tower do not support LGA 115. I had to drill new holes in the case for stand offs.

Other Thoughts: I love that its not flashy. i would put this in pro's but to some that's a negative.

cable management in the new build with a modular PSU was significantly easier.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Inexpensive
-Nice aluminum finish
-No frills

Cons: -No removable motherboard-side panel
-Awkward drive bay placement
-Limited cooling spots
-Front audio jacks failed

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for 3 years. It served me well. That being said, I wouldn't buy it again. You may not need some of the features now, but down the road, you will regret the positioning of the drive bays which makes changing drives a chore, the lack of a rear panel for clean cable management and easy access to the motherboard for after-market coolers. A good case can last 10 years or more. Invest in a good one.

Also, the front audio jacks failed, which is a common problem with this case. One last thought: good luck removing the front panel while you have a 5.25" drive bay in use.
