A Closer Look: Interior

Taking off the front tempered glass panel reveals an all-black interior with the exception of a silver Cooler Master logo on the right panel. This panel is completely removable and also includes two SSD mounting points.

Looking behind the right panel is the PSU shroud, which has a single grommet at the bottom for running cables towards the front of the case. Attached to the shroud is one of the many brackets in the SL600M, which can be used to install SSD’s, HDD’s or water cooler accessories.

At the back of the case where you would normally see the rear exhaust fan, you will find another universal installation bracket.

To take off the right panel, you just need to remove the two screws on the top and bottom. Once it has been removed, you have access to the SL600M PSU shroud.

The shroud itself can be taken off by using the two thumbnail screws on the right. After it has been removed, it reveals the last piece of the PSU assembly, the PSU mounting bracket.

This mounting bracket can also be taken off by unscrewing the two thumbnail screws on the right. Now that is it removed, you can attach your PSU and re-attach it to the SL600M. Looking at the back, you will notice that there are notches from the bottom to top of the case that allows you to install the PSU in different locations.

Now that the PSU has been removed, toward the front of the case there are 2 more universal brackets.

At the bottom of the interior, you have the two pre-installed 200mm under a steel encloser that has ventilation on the top.

This enclosure can be easier taken out by removing the 4 screws holding it in place: two located at the back and two at the front. Once removed you have access to the two installed 200mm fans, if you were to go with a smaller fan, it also supports 3 x 120mm or 2 x 140mm fans.

If you wish to install some exhaust fans, you can do so by removing the top panel. This can be done by removing the thumbscrew located at the back of the case and popping it off. The top, like the bottom, supports up to 3 x 120mm, 2 x 140mm, or 2 x 200mm fans.

For ease of installation of a radiator the whole top panel can be removed by taking out the 6 screws holding it in place.

Taking off the back panel, Cooler Master has included plenty of tiedown points for your cable management, 3 of which include Velcro strips. As far as running the cables to your components the SL600M has 2 small cutouts at the top of the motherboard tray, 3 large grommets on the left side and a long wire channel along the bottom. Also installed is a fan controller which supports up to 4 PWM fans and can be controlled using the front I/O or your motherboard. If you wish to install some SSD’s on the back, you can do so with the 2 brackets below the motherboard cutout.
