Three Cooler Master 120mm RGB LED fans installed in the front with two wires set coming out of each fan. One for RGB LED connection & second is standard 3-pin fan connector.

The 3-Pin header wire from each fan hâm mộ are too short in length (about 8 inch from front panel) and I was able lớn connect only one tín đồ directly lớn my motherboard on to lớn a fan header close khổng lồ 24-pin ATX connector.

The DarkMirror front panel is made from Plexiglas and comes off easily for mentainence as one have to vì a lot of dust cleaning with this case. The air inlet for all three fans in front is a small opening at the bottom of the front panel which have a removable filter mesh. But with such a small inlet I am sure if this filter is not cleaned regularly it may result in higher system temperature.

Pros

Great PriceNice LooksEasy hardware installationFour fans including 3 x RGB Fans Nice Side tempered glass panel Transparent Dark front panel1 to 3 RGB splitter with major motherboards RGB lighting compatibility.

Cons

Only one SDD mounting platRGB fans have very short 3-pin wires. Included molex to lớn 3 x tín đồ cable which keep fan spinning at max all the time. Small air inlet for all three fansWill require lot of duct cleaning

Cooler Master MASTERBOX LITE 5 RGB is aimed for bạn PC build at the budget with a price tag of INR 5K. Considering the looks, RGB fans and design this case is winner for this price segment.

There are few places in the case where we can clearly see the price cutting in action, to bring the case for a budget price. Lượt thích the metal sheet used is little thinner than other Master series cases, but still we didn"t found any compromise in case rigidness or frame stability. The RGB fans wire are too short for all of them lớn be connected to lớn motherboard headers. I request Cooler Master lớn increase the 3-pin fan wire length or provide fan extension cables along.

The RGB fans are very quiet & provide good air flow. But due khổng lồ shorter wires và unavailability of tín đồ extension cables , one have khổng lồ power the tín đồ via provided molex khổng lồ 3 x 3-pin fan hâm mộ connector cable, which will make the fans to run at max RPM and may result in some fan noise.

The tempered glass and front dark Plexiglas panel with three tín đồ air inlet makes this case a dust magnet & need lot of duct cleaning.

So at conclusion, we like to say that Cooler Master MASTERBOX LITE 5 RGB case is a great option for budget PC build with super good price và looks, worthy of our PC TeK đánh giá Value Award.
