The Front Panel

We were impressed with the quality of the plastic used on the front panel of the Cooler Master N200, as low-cost cases usually make use of inferior-quality plastics, which is not the case here. The reviewed case has one external 5.25” bay and one external 3.5” bay. The bay covers are meshed and there is an air filter for the front fan.

The case comes with one 120 mm fan on its front panel (Cooler Master A12025-12CB-3EN-F1, a.k.a. Xtraflo 120, sleeve bearing, 2,000 rpm, 82.9 cfm, and 36 dBA), and it supports the installation of a second fan. The fan that comes with the case uses a standard three-pin fan power connector with an adapter in case you want to connect the fan directly to the power supply. According to the manufacturer, you can install a 240 mm radiator on the front panel of this case.

The case comes with two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, and the traditional audio jacks on its front panel. The USB 3.0 port uses an internal connector. We can’t understand why the manufacturer didn’t add a second USB 3.0 port instead of a second USB 2.0 port.
