Cooler Master Praetorian 730 Mid-Tower Case

Manufacturer: Cooler Master


The new Praetorian 730 is Cooler Mater's latest addition to their Praetorian line of PC enclosures and in many respects is an updated version of the popular Wave Master chassis.  The Praetorian 730 is an all aluminum enclosure that features enhanced airflow, blue LED cooling fans, elegant styling, and a removable motherboard tray. 

The Cooler Master Praetorian 730 is available with either a silver (natural aluminum) or black finish.

First Impressions

The Cooler Master Praetorian 730 mid-tower case arrived securely packaged between Styrofoam inserts inside a standard cardboard box.  Packed inside the enclosure is a small box of accessories, which included only a power cord and bag of hardware.  Noticeably missing was any type of documentation (installation, assembly, cable pin-outs, etc.) and none appears to be available from the Cooler Master website.

The build quality is very good — just what we have come to expect from Cooler Master.  The Praetorian 730 enclosure feels sturdy and relatively lightweight for an all aluminum case.  The Praetorian tipped my digital scale to 8.76 kg (19.3 lbs), which is a slightly lighter than the 22 lbs listed on the Cooler Master spec sheet.
