Cooler Master has an excellent reputation for its PC cases, with many years of experience creating many of the world’s most famous cases. While the new CMP 520 isn’t some flagship monster crammed full of innovation, the CMP 520 is one of their more compact and reasonably priced gaming cases. With an MSRP of around £90 and an ATX Mid-Tower design, it’s set to tick all the right boxes for a mid-to-high-end gaming PC build.
