Cooler Master Mystique 631

     Cooler Master, makers of all things cool, has a sweet new product out that I've been eagerly awaiting. It's the successor to the Wave Master and it's called the Mystique. Made out of durable aluminum, this sexy case has really caught my attention, and I really do mean that. Not since the dominating days of Lian Li has a case made me feel as happy as a young boy on Christmas morning. Okay, we all know that looks aren't everything when it comes to a computer case so let's dig into this silver beast and see what it has to offer.

     One thing I want to point out in these pictures before we get too far is the name you will see printed on the Case in the form of "Wave Master". The case we have is an early beta model and Cooler Master decided to change the name of their new case line to "Mystique". With these cases already in early production, a few of these cases were released to reviewers with the old name stamped on them. Bottom line, this case is called the Mystique 631, not Wave Master.

     Right out of the box I knew that Cooler Master wasn't messing around when they made this bad boy. The case may be light, but it's not light in the quality department. The finish on this case is top notch and so is the overall build. The drive bays and doors operate extremely smooth and feel extremely durable.

     The trend these days is for cases to have media ports pre installed in the case. Cooler Master decided to put theirs on top of the case. The positioning is pretty handy and it also helps keep the front of the case looking like a work of art and not a box.
