Coolermaster Wavemaster: All Metal With Sharp Edges

Coolermaster uses lightweight aluminum for its Wavemaster case, putting its total weight at a mere 17.6 pounds. The side panels and the motherboard tray are as light as a feather. The front panels, by contrast, are sturdy and heavy. The front door that protects the 5.25" drives is only kept in place by a small magnet. There are some edges on the front that could quickly cause bruises if you bump up against them with your knee or leg. The front ports are placed on the top of the black case, where you can also see small blemishes (dents) caused by the brackets.

Metal front door: opens 110 degrees

Edges on the front: possible cause of leg bruises?

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
