Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M hands-on: This sleek PC case has room for a ton of storage

Bet you can't guess just how many drives you can mount.

The first in a new line of cases from Cooler Master, the MasterCase SL600M is a full-sized tower with ample space and a relatively compact footprint. One landed on our doorstep just head of its Tuesday launch, and we couldn’t resist opening it up in advance of the project we’ll be using it in. You can watch us take a tour of it—by way of a teardown of the sample build we installed—in the video below.

Among the SL600M’s unique features is a vertical airflow design, powered by two standard, non-RGB 200mm fans at the bottom of the chassis. You also get a whopping eight different mounting points for storage. Four can support both 2.5- and 3.5-inch drives, while the remaining four are only for 2.5-inch models.

We found a few particularly clever details in this case, like the two-part PSU mount that keeps the inevitable tangle of connected power cables out of sight. Cooler Master also tucked the storage drive mounts all over the case, largely keeping them out of sight. (If you ever challenge friends and family to guess just how many SSDs you can stuff into this case, you’ll likely always win those bets.)

The Cooler Master SL600M costs $199.99 and is available now.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
