Cooler Master N300 and N500: PC Cases of Medium Price Tier

Cooler Master announces a release of two new PC cases of mid-tower form-factor. Codenamed N300 and N500, the couple belongs to the medium price tier products and is differentiated by a laconic design combined with a thoughtfully elaborated cooling. Each model features a totally black coating and grid-like frontal panel. In retail market these cases will be offered in two framework variations: with blind side panels and with a large transparent window on one of the panels.

Both models are thought to support motherboards of standard ATX and micro-ATX dimensional type. The most notable peculiarity is the cooling system that primarily consists of two pre-installed 120 mm fans (in the frontal and rear parts of the case); however, this pair might be easily supplemented by seven (with blind construction) or five (with windowed construction) fans more. Moreover, there is a feasibility of incorporating a liquid-cooling system. Some key specifications of both novices are featured below.
