Centurion 534 is the latest case in the Centurion series from Cooler Master. While its front panel is aluminum made, the rest of the case is made of zinc-coated steel (a.k.a. SECC). It is a good intermediate solution for those without the budget to go straight to an all-aluminum case. We took a look at this new release by Cooler Master.

As you can see in Figure 1, Centurion 534 has a very conservative design. What is different on it is the position of its frontal air intakes, located at the junction of the front of the case with its side.

This product is available in two colors: black (the one you see on our pictures) and silver.

Centurion 534 is a 5-bay ATX case (five 5 “ bays, one 3 “ bay plus three internal 3 “ bays). One the case frontal panel you will find one mic input, one headphone output, two USB ports and, what is really cool, one FireWire port, traditionally a not so common feature (funny enough all cases we’ve taken a look recently had this feature, so we can say that adding this port is the current trend among the case manufacturers).

In Figure 3, you can see the back of Centurion 534. It has seven slots for installing expansion boards and a place for installing a 120 mm fan (which doesn’t come with the case). It also doesn’t come with a power supply.

It has a duct on its side panel, following Intel specification for newer Pentium 4-based PCs.

Opening this case is very easy, as it uses thumbscrews, i.e., you don’t need a screwdriver to open it.
