For today I will assume that everyone reading this review knows the name CoolerMaster. They make lots of excellent quality products. I myself have owned a few of their products and like them very much. Today is the first time I get to review one of their PC cases; it is the Centurion 532 chassis. It is an excellent chassis, with lots of cool features. In fact I liked it so much I retired my other case and am now using the Centurion 532 as a home from my main system! Read on to find out more...

Well, I was very surprised when I received the box for the Centurion, I kind of expected it to be flashy with all kinds of pictures and stuff all over it, but it isn't, it's just a basic brown box with very little information on it. While this isn't a bad thing, it would have been nice to see a picture of the case on the box, but if you ordered this online then you know what you are getting.
The Centurion 532 was packaged very well; the case itself is covered in plastic, and nestled in some Styrofoam to further protect it.
There isn't much in the way of accessories that comes with the Centurion, just some basic hardware, drive rails and a manual. Pretty much everything is tool less so there isn't much hardware needed for the installation.
