MSI MAG Forge 100 Series PC Cases Revealed
Peter Donnell / 9 months ago
Want a PC case that’s built to look tough? Then why not design it around the concept of an anvil? That’s what MSI has done with their new Forge 100 series of PC cases! OK, so you’re not likely to go hammering hot steel on top of it any time soon, but I do love MSI’s wording that it was “Made to look sturdy and robust” with the emphasis on the made to look section.
It’s a great looking setup though, with a really unique front panel design, a raised tempered glass side panel, and decent hardware support. It’s certainly ticking all the right boxes for today’s PC gaming market.
The 100R, 100M and 101M all look broadly similar but come with slightly different fan configurations. The 100R is ARGB fans, while the 100M has two RGB fans and the 101M has three RGB fans.
What MSI Had to Say
“Forge is defined as the process of shaping a metal object through heating and hammering, a magical event that turns something ordinary into something phenomenal. Introducing the MSI MAG Forge 100 series, gaming computers made to perform and serve. Made to look sturdy and robust, the Forge 100 series took design cues from smith anvils as a constant reminder. It reminds us that no matter what, the Forge 100 series will always sit as your foundation in turning anything into something extraordinary. The Forge 100 series has three esteemed members: Forge 100R, Forge 100M, and Forge 101M. Decide what gear fits you best in the heat of battle, and you’re sure to win. As shown by the photo, users can choose between having 2 or 3 pre-installed front fans depending on the product SKU.” – MSI
Forge 100 Series
Leaving some decision making to our users, the Forge 100 series supports multiple easy installation mechanisms and can accommodate up to the ATX motherboard that provides peak performance depending on what our users need. Thanks to the Mystic Light software, the MAG Forge 100R can cast millions of colours and special effects. The Mystic Light software can even further enhance your build personalization through synchronization with a huge variety of components. Pressing the LED switch button for three seconds also grants users the ability to sync the lighting effects with the motherboard through the MSI Mystic Light App.
On top of its increased durability, 4 mm side panel tempered glass is ideal for displaying RGB lighting effects and providing a clear look of the internal components. The Forge 100 Series’ thoughtful case design allows users to install/remove the tempered glass easily. Simply place the tempered glass on the stump of the case before installing it for a safe and simple process
