Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 Case Review: Page 6 of 7

System Build and Installation

The hardware included in this build is:

  • ASRock Z370 Tachi Motherboard
  • Intel 8700K Processor
  • 4 x 4GB Team Group T-Force Delta RGB Ram
  • MSI X-Gaming RX480 8GB GPU
  • Cooler Master 212 Hyper Black Edition Cooler
  • EVGA 750W P2 PSU

The NR600 was a pleasure to build in and I loved the unobstructed layout in the case. I had plenty of room to work with while installing my components with room to spare if I wanted to upgrade to a 360mm AIO or even a custom loop. With a tempered glass side panel, I wanted to make sure my build looked great and my cable management was on point. This was easy to achieve thanks to the combination of the full PSU shroud and the cable cutouts around the motherboard.

Managing the cables in the back of the case was a breeze with the many included tie-downs. The only issue I had with the whole build was how much of space you have for the PSU. It quite the tight fit and you must pre-install all your cables prior to securing the PSU. So, if down the road you wish to add an additional cable you will have to remove the whole unit to do so. I would have been nice if the HDD cage was removable or even if it was moved to the left a few more inches. Like many other Cooler Master cases, the NR600 has tool-less 2.5” mounts which I used to install my Samsung SSD. Personally, I’m a huge fan of this tool-less mounts and really hope Cooler Master continues to include these on all their cases.

The NR600 may not include any colorful RGB effects but it does have a single subtle lighting element with the Cooler Master power button.
