Cooler Master has introduced the Qube 500 Flatpack, a compact and fully modular computer case. The new product was first shown at Computex 2023 in June. The case is delivered completely disassembled in a flat box, which significantly saves space for transport and storage.
Despite the compact dimensions of 380 × 231 × 381 mm (without protrusions) or 406 × 231 × 415 mm (including protrusions) and a volume of 33 liters, the case supports the installation of not only small boards in ITX, Micro -ATX- and standard ATX, but also large E-ATX form factor boards.
The Qube 500 flatpack case accommodates a graphics card up to 360mm long and a liquid cooler with a standard size of up to 280mm and a total thickness of up to 53mm. It also supports the installation of air cooling systems up to 172mm high.
The case is very airy and offers seven expansion slots. Another interesting feature of the new product is the ability to install the power supply on the front (behind the front wall). In this case, the installation of power supply models up to 273 mm wide is permitted. If desired, the power supply can be installed in the lower part of the housing. Power supplies up to 293 mm wide are supported. The length of the power supply can be up to 173 mm (216 mm including space for cables). There is also enough space inside to install four 3.5-inch and three 2.5-inch drives.
The case features a pre-installed 120mm SF Black PWM fan with speeds up to 1800 RPM located on the back panel. In addition, you can install one or two (if the power supply is located at the bottom) fans of standard size 120 or 140 mm at the front, two 120 or 140 mm fans at the top, two of the same ones at the back and two more on the left wall.
The Qube 500 Flatpack will be available in black and white versions. It will also be available in mint, pink and cream colors. It will also be possible to use a 3D printer to produce other accessories yourself, such as various stands for headphones or game controllers.
The company did not provide any information about the costs of the procedure. Detailed video instructions for assembling the Qube 500 flatpack company published on your YouTube channel.
Cooler Master also introduced MasterLiquid Atmos series maintenance-free liquid cooling systems in 360 and 240 mm sizes. They are equipped with pumps with a noise level of 12 dBA, rated for 210,000 hours of operation between failures, as well as 120mm SickleFlow Edge fans with operating speeds of up to 2500 RPM, which are rated for 160,000 hours of operation between failures .
The fans produce 70.7 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of airflow and 3.61 mmH2O of static pressure. According to the manufacturer, their noise level does not exceed 27.2 dBA.
An interesting feature of the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Atmos series liquid cooling systems is that their units are equipped with a pump with replaceable covers. You can print your own version of the cover on a 3D printer, for example, using ready-made sketches published by Cooler Master itself on a special website.
For LSS, compatibility with the Intel LGA 1700, LGA 1200, LGA 1151, LGA 1150, LGA 1155, LGA 1156 processor sockets as well as AMD sockets AM5 and AM4 is explained. The manufacturer did not provide any information about the costs of the new products.
