The box of the 731. Plain and simple. Meant to incur as little as possible
for packaging.

The facade of the the casing. The front of this casing looks sturdy. When it is turned on, blue light can be easily seen through the grills surrounding the CoolerMaster logo.

The casing with side panel removed. Note that the side panel actually comes with a
grill with an air duct mounted on it. Following Intel’s Thermally Advanced chassis certification, it had become a stepping stone for most casing manufacturers by introducing air ducts mounted on the side panel.

The flip side of the duct. It works by channeling cool air, into the case,
from the suction of a standard CPU heatsink fan.

The inside front of the case. A clean and simple design offers easy installation of devices.

CoolerMaster was kind enough to include 2 80mm fans with blue LED for the front intakes since most manufacturers would provide conventional fans.

The rear inside view of the case. Similar to the front, 2 blue LED 80mm
fans are pre-mounted for exhaust purpose.

The removable tray from the Praetorian 731. One of the very few casing that
comes with this unique feature.

The interesting thing is that it there’s actually the 5th fan bundled with
it, for use as a top vent. The top vent however, can be switched from the
default of USB and sound ports, to a top exhaust fan. Pretty neat feature as top
exhaust usually takes off the hottest air in the casing.

 

 

This casing will be available in mid February. SRP tentatively at $ 229 for
the Silver model.
