titleCooler Master’s Centurion 5 II is known for being a basic PC case for a standard build, something you would normally use to build your parents PC. It’s also known for being a great value in the budget PC market. When Cooler Master told us they had received a few limited edition red Centurion 5 II’s from Japan, I was more than happen to take one off their hands for a closer look. Will a little extra style bump this up from a budget build case to something you would be proud to show off at LANs? Let’s find out.

my lian li has 3 - 5.25 bays. 1 of those bays had a 3.5 slot conversion. perfect for 1 optical drive and something else.

If they got rid of most of the bays you would upset a lot of people who use them for everything else.

I use all of my bays for example. Also a lot of bays help with airflow

This isn't a knock on this case but cases in general.

I want someone to take a poll on how many DVD drives they have in their computer. Do we really need 5 5 1/4 bays? I would think that people would like more HDD space. I know that you can use 5 1/4 bays for many different things and I think that it why we are seeing still a high number of them.

I can see it now, Lesar has 5 DVD drives in his next build that are all IDE. Lol, sorry bud.

The most that I can see is 4 and that is extreme. 2 DVD drives and a reservoir that takes up two spots. Then again unless your burning DVD's constantly then you really only need 1.

I have no idea were i'm going with this but 5 is too many in my book. I wish my 800D only had one and more room for HDD.

I do like the red interior though.

its not as dated as it is budget. Most low end cases are basic
