Centurion 5 II Japan Version
1 June 2011
Conclusion: This is a beautiful case. There is nothing special about the exterior, but the beautiful red finish on the inside really sets this case apart. The case has tons of features and is offered at a very low price. If you are in an area that has this case for sale, you should consider it.
Pros: Price!, SSD adapter, Finished interior, Cut-out in motherboard tray for access to back of installed motherboard, Zip-tie mounts for cable routing, Mesh front allows for greater airflow and reduced weight, Movable I/O panel
Cons: Fixed motherboard tray, Fixed HDD cage, Hard plastic feet, Lack of firewire and USB 3.0 ports on external I/O panel, Not available in North America
[Review] Cooler Master Centurion C5 II – Red Edition
25 April 2011
Conclusion: The Centurion C5 II Red Edition from Japan stands out as one of the best looking overall mid towers that we have reviewed in some time. The two-tone red and black paint job won us over as soon as we saw it.
Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Limited Edition "Red" Case Review
Hi Tech Legion
17 April 2011
Summary: The Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Red Edition performed very well and kept the system temperatures within optimal working levels. Installation was also a lot easier than most budget cases because of the tool-free locks and the relatively spacious work area.
Pros: Very high build quality and paint job for a budget case, Decent cable management options, Dust filters for the entire front panel, Viewing window on the left side panel with an optional 120mm fan mounting area, Bottom mounted power supply with optional dust filter, Large motherboard cutout for af...
Cons: Non-standard motherboard standoffs/motherboard mounting screws, Clearance between the right side panel and the back of the motherboard tray is too small (1 cm) to route thick power supply cables, Available only in select markets in Asia and Australia
Excerpt: The newly released Centurion 5 II by Cooler Master, is a perfect example of trying to put all the functionality that one needs into a case, without ending up with something you'll having to spend your entire budget on in order to purchase.
Conclusion: The Centurion 5 II is a solid chassis for the $60 price tag. It has enough options to satisfy most shoppers who are in need of a budget case. The 140mm blue LED intake fan, which can be turned on and off, is a nice touch to add a little color to the case.
Summary: The cooling aspect of the Centurion 5 II is passable. The optional fan locations, like the top exhaust fan, should be populated with fans by the user. With only the default fans installed, the temperatures returned by our testing were all good.
Pros: Bottom mounted PSU, Excellent finish + appearance, Rail system for 3.5", Screwless 5.25" bays, Dust filtered intakes, Screwless PCI/PCI-E card clips, Cutout for heatsink removal, Dual 3.5" SSD Converter
Conclusion: Cooler Masters Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse has got to be one of the funnest pieces of hardware that’s come across my desk in a while. There is so that you can do with this thing it’s a hardware tweakers dream.
Pros: Adjustable DPI up to 5600, Custom Lighting, OLED screen, Comfortable shape, Dual tracking laser, Macro and Script creation, Multiple Profile creation
Conclusion: Ultimately I’m a little unsure with how to conclude the Sentinel review. It’s a nice mouse in reality, it’s comfortable, works well, has a high DPI and good accuracy, but it just doesn’t feel as smooth as some of the other high end mice I’ve used.
Pros: Massive DPI, Smooth glide over mousing surface, Looks cool, colour changing LEDs, DPI LCD is fancy
