Cooler Master has launched two new cases that feature a unique front design.

Listed this week on the manufacturer’s website, the CMP 520 and CMP 320 are two new cases that can fit up to ATX and Micro ATX sized motherboards, respectively. Both feature a front panel “inspired by asymmetrical crystal formations,” enabling a bit of an aggressive look, as well as other features that include 120 mm ARGB fans, a breathable power supply shroud, and full black coating.

It doesn’t appear as if Cooler Master has shared the official pricing for its CMP 520 and CMP 320 cases, but they shouldn’t be too expensive, as speculated by Tom’s Hardware, which spotted the new listings.

Based on the design language, we can estimate these cases to be cheaper models with a price of around $80 to $120, depending on the price of the fans. This should put them in competitive distance of other popular cases such as the Phanteks P series, G series, Fractal Design Meshify 2, and NZXT H5 series, to name a few.
