The Cooler Master Centurion 5 (CAC-T05-WWA)Tue, Dec 28, 2004 - 6:00 AM
Cooler Master is among the industry leaders in high quality cases. From the TAC-T01 Wave Master to the incredible CM Stacker, Cooler Master has produced some of the best looking and sturdiest cases available.
The Centurion 5is available in black with either blue or silver trim and is constructed of steel, which adds weight and limits some heat dissipation, but adds strength and durability to the chassis. The case was shipped in colorful packaging with the words “Armed with Honor” emblazoned on the side to apparently lend a feel of nobility.
Quoting the Cooler Master press release “Centurion, an honorable name, represents quality of Discipline, Integrity & Loyalty. With the Centurion beside you, now you can conquer the world feeling safe and proud without having to be a Caesar”.
While the Centurion 5 is a nice looking case, I am not ready to trade my Stacker just yet. Let’s take a look at the specifics.
