After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

  • Cooler Master Gladiator 600 Case Review
  • Cooler Master Gladiator 600 Case Review



    The CM Gladiator 600 is a case for a budget minded person that wants a tons of great options without breaking the bank. The case comes with many different cooling fan options to help keep the system cool and Cooler Master has included 2 fans with one being a Blue LED for some extra value.  Well planned cable management system is a very welcomed concept and building with the CM Gladiator 600 is a breeze given the many tool less options.

    In terms of casemodding the CM Gladiator 600 is a clean slate meaning that there is a lot of options to personalize this case by adding stuff like water cooling or more fans with LED lights. The inside of this case is also helpful, not on for installing your gear but gives you more flexibility in where you run cables and hoses.

    The potential of the CM Gladiator 600 is very strong, and we are sure many modders out there are going to love exploring it.  The low price tag should also help beginning modder grapple with their first project and still have money to complete the project..
