Cooler Master MasterBox 540 Review

PC building instruction – installation of the hardware in the MasterBox 540 …

Since Cooler Master advertises a lot of installation space, we decided to install the following components:

Mainboard ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming K4
CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
RAM 4x 8GB Crucial Ballistix MAX DDR4-4400
Graphics card Palit 1070Ti with Arctic TwinTurbo III cooler
SSD 2x 2.5″ SATA SSDs
Power supply Antec HCG 750W Bronze power supply
Water cooling
Pump Aqua Computer Aquastream Ultimate
Balancing tank Aqua Computer Aquainlet Pro 100 ml
Radiators 1x240mm / 1x 320mm
CPU Cooler Aqua Computer Cuplex Kryos XT

Surprisingly, the components were installed without any major problems. We only needed a normal Phillips screwdriver to fix the motherboard and the radiators. Due to the 8-pin power supply of the CPU, we decided to mount the 240mm radiator on top.

The 360mm radiator, on the other hand, is mounted in the front. Since our graphics card is fortunately not extremely long, the water pump also found a good place in the case.

Here you can see again the general view from the side.

On the back, besides two SSDs …

… also the integrated LED controller has found its place. By the way, this also needs a SATA power connector.

Now that everything is installed, let’s take a look at the MasterBox 540 in the dark.

Those who previously thought that the Masterbox was rather plain and restrained will now be proven wrong. The lighting installed by Cooler Master looks very impressive!

Especially the 3D effect of the front is almost hypnotizing. If the illumination is not enough, you can add a few LED strips or fans to the existing RGB controller. In our case, we were able to connect two 120mm fans without any problems.

If you are not satisfied with the lighting modes of the included LED controller and have a motherboard with ARGB connector, you can of course integrate the integrated lighting into your lighting concept without any problems thanks to the standardized A-RGB cable.

Before we come to the conclusion, we can enjoy the different modes and colors of the LED controller in our OCinside YouTube Channel.
