Reviews of the latest hardware in the industry.
In a year when pretty much every case has some element of RGB, sometimes it is nice to go back to the root of what makes a great case. That is what Cooler Master has done with its new case: the MasterCase SL600M. It has a stylish design, quality materials, and some innovative features. Some of the notable features of the SL600M are bottom to top airflow, a versatile mounting bracket for SSD/HDD’s or water cooler components throughout the case, and a rotatable PCIe bracket panel. In addition to these features, the SL600M also sports a dark tinted tempered glass back panel, adjustable top vent, and anodized aluminum panels with a smooth sandblasted finish. Despite this extensive list of features, the SL600M still manages to maintain an MSRP below $200 at a price of $199.99.

With the current RGB craze it’s easy to forget not every peripheral needs RGB flair. Cooler Master has taken a different approach with the MH751 and decided to put all the focus on comfort, quality, minimalist yet sleek design and versatility. The MH751 offers premium comfort thanks to its lightweight frame and high-density foam headband and ear cushion. This headset is extremely versatile and can be used on the PC, console or portable music player due to its 3.5mm jack. The MH751 is also very portable thanks to its fold-flat design and detachable boom mic. Not only does the MH751 look outstanding, but it also promises to provide great sound quality with its 40mm neodymium magnet driver. Even with all these features, the MH751 comes in at an affordable MSRP of $79.99.

In competitive gaming, peripherals make all the difference and can turn a good player into a great player. When picking out your hardware, you usually put a lot of thought into picking the keyboard, mouse and headset, but there is one item missing from this list. If you really want to edge out your opponents, you will also need a quality mouse pad that offers fast movement for those flicks and also precision tracking when looking for that perfect head shot. Normally you would have to choose between either fast or control, but thanks to Cooler Master’s MP860, you no longer have to. The MP860 offers both a low-friction cloth surface for speed and with an easy flip you can make use of its anodized aluminum surface for precision. In addition to having 2 pads in 1 it’s also accented with RGB lighting on the side to add that extra pop to your setup. With a MSRP of $69.99 it might be a small price to pay to get an edge over your opponent.

Cooler Master Mousepads
To succeed in the market of high-end cases, you must create a case that is feature-rich and highly unique. Over the years, InWin has been a pioneer in this market space with cases like the: S-Frame, D-Frame, H-Tower and now we can add the InWin 915 to that list. The 915 does away with the generic box shape of most cases and replaces it with curved 3mm anodized aluminum panels. Enhancing the curved panels are tempered glass side panels with the back panel being stylistically silkscreened with the company’s name. In addition to its beautiful aesthetics, the InWin 915 also includes some unique features such as motorized top ventilation, expandable PSU bay, and system failure indicator LEDs at the front. Coming in at an MSRP of $449.99, the InWin 915 is definitely priced as a high-end case which is quite justified with its intensive list of features and stylish looks.
