The still continually growing diversity of today’s home and business computers are bringing us more and more choices in the components that comprise them. Some are very specialized, others basic necessities that typically don’t stray too far from the tried and true. One of the most basic necessities is the case. These days, there is no shortage of choices in this basic need. A quick scan of a major online retailer showed 140 different models of mid-tower cases in the $50-70.00 range alone. Aside from aesthetics and minor variables, there is very little to base your decision on in this overwhelming sea of options.


Cooler Master Gladiator 600.



Coolermaster has made a solid reputation for itself by offering a wide range of cases, all known for superior build quality and innovative design. They have become a top choice of gamers with cases designed to accept a multitude of cooling options.

Cooler Master Gladiator 600


The Gladiator 600 fits squarely into their mainstream offerings, with a few options often seen on higher priced offerings.  The Cooler Master Gladiator 600 comes with a top mount 140mm exhaust fan installed, along with a front 120mm intake fan (with blue LED for those who wish to use it), accommodations for 2 120/140mm side fans and 120mm rear fan, and a bottom mount for the power supply (not included) that exhausts through the bottom of the case. Obviously, cooling was not an afterthought. Airflow through the case is clean, thanks to an excellent motherboard tray with a wide array of cable routing options.
