Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M Review

Conclusion

The Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M is a beautifully elegant chassis with a superb built quality. The cable management options have been well thought out with all the routing options you could need. Additionally, the inclusion of a USB 3.0 Type-C port and fan controller are a welcome touch.

The addition of four USB ports means that you won’t often need to reach to the back of your case, but two of them being USB 2.0 seems shortsighted. With more and more boards only including a single USB 2.0 header it will likely be taken by an AIO cooler, RGB controller or otherwise. There are USB 2.0 splitters available, but given that you will likely need one it would have been nice to see one included. With only two standard 200 mm fans included and no RGB options whatsoever, case is an empty framework for you to customize as you please.

If you’re after elegance and don’t necessarily want RGB LEDs everywhere this case is worth consideration. Additionally, the ability to have multiple vertically installed expansion cards is a desirable feature, especially if you’re going to be water cooling. Without front of rear fan support you will probably be looking at water cooling in this case, so it’s clear that thought went into the overall design. Due to all the above, we can’t rate the Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M poorly. The emotions evoked when seeing it are akin to sitting in a Mercedes or BMW.
