Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Centurion 5 II is a value mid-tower case from Cooler Master, available in two different trim colors (black or silver) and with or without a transparent side window. Costing only USD 50, it brings several features usually present only on more expensive products. Today we are reviewing the Japanese version of this case, which comes with its interior and rear panel painted black, and its motherboard tray and disk drive bays painted red.

The part number for the Centurion 5 II is RC-502, followed by the trim color (S for silver and K for black) and presence of a transparent side window (WN) or not (KN). The version with the interior painted red comes with a “JP” at the end of the part number. Therefore, we are reviewing the RC-502-KWN1-JP version of this case.

In Figure 3, you can see the transparent side window of the sample we reviewed. This window comes with a place for installing a 120 mm fan. The model that comes with a solid side panel has two meshes, allowing you to install two 120 mm fans. As explained, in the Japanese “special edition” version, the rear panel and the interior of the case are painted black, with the motherboard tray and disk drive bays painted red. In the normal versions, the interior is not painted; therefore, it has the typical steel gray color.

The Centurion 5 II comes with an air filter that can be installed either with the side 120 mm fan or on the mesh for the power supply fan.
