The PC Customiser Master Ghost R5 System Review

A Closer Look
Straight away, the Master Ghost R5 looks stunning from the moment we took it out of the box. The stunning white finish of the chassis is aesthetically pleasing and pairs up nicely with the white cooler on the ASUS GTX 1070.
The front of the chassis is a glossy black panel. This is a bit of a dust magnet, but it’s easy to clean and gives the chassis a nice contrasting finish.
Solid white around this side too, but you came to see the system, not just the chassis!
Around the back, everything looks neat and tidy. There’s a white LED fan pre-installed in the rear too, which we’ll see in action shortly.
With the side panel removed, you can see just how neat and tidy this build is! The PC Customiser team has done a stunning job with the cable management/routing. There’s a lot of free space for good airflow throughout the chassis.
There are two 3.5″ trays here, one of them is free, the other has that lovely FireCuda drive.
The 240mm Cooler Master MasterLiquid AIO is installed proudly in the front. This not only looks great but also ensures the CPU cooling should be superb.
That lovely white ASUS GTX 1070 works very well and pairs up with the monochrome design of the ASUS motherboard.
Keeping with that black and white theme, there’s a white LED fan in the rear. Add to that the black AIO cooler, which also has white LED lighting on the pump. Need more? There’s also that black Corsair memory, which also has white LED’s too!
Tucked away on the motherboard, that lovely M.2 drive. Shame it’s not black and white, as the green PCB does much up to the aesthetics. However, it’s a very fast drive, and I would be happy to have it in my system regardless of the PCB design.
Perfectly neat cable routing at the bottom of the motherboard.
Behind the motherboard, things are as clean as they could possibly be. Every cable has been routed with absolute love and care. Cable ties have been used liberally, so no issues here. Actually, it may be a fuss if you wanted to remove a cable, as you would have to cut a lot of cable ties, but I can’t see why you would.
