Cooler Master N600 PC Case ReviewThu, Aug 15, 2013 - 10:00 AM
N600 External Impressions
The front bezel is almost entirely a wire mesh to help with airflow. At the top there are three 5.25” drive bays, and no 3.5” bays. On the right side of the bezel we find the front I/O ports and buttons; starting at the top is a small reset button, power button, headphone, microphone, two USB 2.0 and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports.
The front bezel comes off with just a slight pull from the bottom. On the backside of the bezel there is a simple fabric mesh filter. The 5.25” drive bay covers are held in place by simple clips. In the case behind the front bezel we find the 5.25” drive bays exposed, and right below those are the two front fans. Cooler Master has included one 120mm fan with White LED’s; a second 120mm fan can also be installed.
The left side panel is plain except for the fan install location for two 120mm fans or one 180/200mm fan. Looking online, the other version of the N600, NSE-600-KWN1, has a large window instead of fans.
The N600 back panel should look pretty familiar as it features many common items. At the top there are two holes for external water cooling solution, these are protected by grommets. The motherboard I/O port key and 120mm fan is below those. In the middle is the normal seven motherboard expansion slots, and extra expansion slot has also been included as well. Finally, at the bottom is the power supply.
On the N600, Cooler Master has taken an added step in ensuring the power supply and bottom fan keep clean by installing an easily removable filter.
The right side panel looks like the left side panel, however the fan vents are stacked vertically. In addition, a single 120mm fan can be installed.
The top of the case we have some additional air vents; two 120/140 mm fan can be installed here.
Taking a look at the bottom of the case, there are four feet to raise the case. In addition, we can see the enter filter for the optional bottom fan and power supply. The case has little rails to ensure the fan slides into the proper position.
