Introduction


With the enormous amount of heat that our processors, video cards, memory, and even hard drives are producing, heatsinks aren't the only thing necessary to keep them at an acceptable temperature. Case design is more important than ever. Intel is well aware of this problem and that is why with their BTX standard, they have a greater heat dissipation than the ATX standard we've all come accustomed to.

As their slogan states, Cooler Master focuses on providing the "ultimate thermal solution," whether it be in the form of a computer case or a heatsink. Cooler Master's cases have always had a gorgeous, well crafted design and look, but most all have also come at a heavier price. Cooler Master's Centurion line of cases is geared toward the mid-range section of the market. A nice looking design can be had cheaply; with the affordability of the Centurion line, can Cooler Master maintain the quality they're known for?
