Joost Gommans, Marketing Manager Cooler Master
We embrace people’s need for self expression in all things they make and do. From components and cases, to the way they are configured and customized to match a specific look and feel. Cooler Master is committed to give greater choice and control to you.

This commitment is made real in our community of makers, modders and creators. We applaud and encourage everyone’s need to mod and customize a case. Because of that commitment, we offer our support to the case mod competition, demonstrate live modding, and provide casemod workshops by world’s best modders right here on our booth at Dreamhack, and events accross the world.
