We have done a few builds and we found that the Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5 one of the easiest to build in. One of the best assets of this chassis is how much space you have to work with. We found it very easy to maneuver components into place in order to find the perfect fit. Our Cooler Master air cooler fit perfectly with more than enough space. One area that we think really makes an impression is how much space you have for the GPU. The Lite 5 really gives you the option to put the latest cards, which are generally larger, into any build. Even after installation, the space does not feel limited. The fans provided by Cooler Master are a good addition but they do not reach the RPM’s we would like to see. At 100% they were only putting out about 1200 RPM. Our motherboard synced perfectly with the fans RGB with no undo attention needed. Cable management on mid tower chassis is always tricky seeing as how the space is very limited. We would have liked to see rubber grommets as well as velcro tie downs. Provided was zip ties which are a good permanent fixture with their only drawback being if you have to move cables they usually have to be cut. Our Masterbox Lite 5 succeeded in the standard front to back airflow allowing for maximum cooling of components. Overall we are very happy with how our build went!
