Cooler Master Masterbox NR200P MAX Chassis Review (inc. 850W SFX PSU)

For Mini-ITX Motherboards

Today we will be taking a look at the Cooler Master Masterbox NR200P MAX Chassis with built-in 280mm AIO cooler plus a 850W Gold SFX power supply. It’s suitable for mini-ITX motherboards and it’s perfect for system builders who wants to build a Mini-PC based on their your own specifications. 

Mini-PCs have been getting more and more popular over the past few years, and one of the main reasons for its popularity is because of its small footprint. Being compact and small, it saves a lot of deskspace and you can literally place it anywhere.  

In the past, Mini-PCs were built as complete units without any expansion capabilities, plus they weren’t very upgradeable. However, forward to 2022 and with the ever growing community of DIYers, we’re now seeing manufacturers releasing Mini-PCs that can be upgraded, plus you now have the option to build the system to your own specifications. 

 

 

The Cooler Master Masterbox NR200P MAX Chassis is basically a barebones ready-to-build Mini-PC that has built-in 280mm AIO cooler. But the real star of the show … is the included 850W Gold SFX power supply. It’s fully modular and comes with some nice braided modular cables. Just the SFX power supply on its own cost an eye-popping USD $160! – https://amzn.to/3WdvSTa. All you need now, is a mini-ITX mothebroard, CPU, and ram … and that’s it! You can also add a full-length graphics (up to 336mm) card if you need to.

 

I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing this review sample! Let us see what Cooler Master has to say about themselves on their website:

Building a PC is a highly personalized journey. We know that components are carefully chosen based on price, functionality, and aesthetic preference. Your personality is embedded in each of those choices, transcending from hardware to an immersive, custom-built experience. From custom PCs to all-out gaming rooms, we encourage every decision to reflect who you are.

Our components represent so many different personalities because PC enthusiasts don’t fit into just one mold. It doesn’t matter if you’re a student on a tight budget, a graphic designer that’s brand new to building, or a veteran modder of high-end gaming PCs; we offer components to inspire creative freedom in everyone. We believe that personal preference and individual expression leads to innovation.

The simple desire to make something better is exactly why Cooler Master is the standard in thermal innovation today. The aspiration to provide better cooling was a matter of personal preference, inspired by the freedom and enjoyment in building and creating something new. Now, our strategic partners like NVIDIA and AMD, our loyal community of gamers and PC enthusiasts, all rely on Cooler Master to strive for thermal excellence. That’s the result of simply wanting improved functionality and wanting to tailor something to fit our personal preference. That’s how innovation starts.

The PC community is never short on feedback and strong opinions—we love that. Hearing your thoughts and ideas give us the opportunity to be a part of your building journey, it helps us perfect the DIY experience, and it encourages us to adapt our product development process. After all, it is the community of builders, creators, and gamers who are an integral part of Cooler Master, helping bring our ideas to life. Together, we have been able to heighten the standards of how PCs are configured, transform the way they look and feel, and surpass the technological expectations of today. That’s where our passion stems from and that’s what it means to truly Make It Yours

To build our Mini-PC, we will be installing an ASRock B550-ITX motherboard, along with a Ryzen 7 4750G, plus 16GB of Adata XPG Spectrix DDR4-3600 ram. We will also be installing a full-length graphics card using a EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 to see if the chassis has enough room. I’m interested to see what the full load temperatures will be like, especially when there’s very limited air-flow in the chassis due to it’s compact size.

You can buy the Cooler Master Masterbox NR200P MAX Chassis for around USD $442 from Amazon – https://amzn.to/3ymOCFE
