CoolerMaster Centurion 590

Making a case for class: Centurion 590 by Coolermaster

What is with computers with transparent side-panel windows? Flashing LED lights? A dozen different case fans? What are people thinking? When did a clean, quiet, metal box with an “ON” button and power light become so passé?

Look, I get it; you want to stand out, you want to be different. You want to show up and be the belle of the LAN party ball. Your kickin’ rad, flame-throwing, tequila-cooled, coffee-making, techno-colored, 10-core computer reflects you in all of your extravagant gold-mining, camper-fragging, Mountain Dew-guzzling glory. I just don’t get it. You may call me out of touch, or jealous, or you might even call me a snob. I’m none of those and I can’t stand all these ridiculous, tacky cases for one simple reason: I’ve got good taste.

The Centurion 590 by Coolermaster might be just what I’ve been looking for. It’s a jet black, rugged looking, utilitarian case with the elegant simplicity that a beret-wearing, Mac-using, latté-sipping elitist like myself would be proud to shove his circuit boards in.
