MSI gets into the case space with the MAG Pylon RGB and MAG Bunker

PC builders can be picky people. Some folks need matching RGB LEDs, while others need every part in their machine to be from the same brand. If you're part of the latter group, never fear—MSI is now offering computer cases. The MAG Pylon RGB and MAG Bunker cases look pretty familiar at a glance, but let's check them out in detail.

MAG Pylon RGB

Both of the MAG cases share the same fundamental design. They're ATX chassis with tempered glass panels, magnetic dust filters, and support for vertical graphics card mounting. Both models have a contemporary dual-chamber design with the power supply mounted in the bottom of the case.

The MAG Pylon RGB comes with three RGB-LED-equipped fans mounted in the front and an additional glass panel on the right side. The MAG Bunker does without presintalled front fans and has a regular solid right panel. Those are the only differences in the cases, which means both models will accept two 3.5" drives and four 2.5" drives. There's no front-panel USB-C port, but you do get a pair of USB 3.0 connections alongside a pair of USB 2.0 ports.

MAG Bunker

Since the product pages just appeared on MSI's site, we don't know when these cases will show up for sale or how much they'll go for. If you're building an MSI-based machine and want to maintain that theme throughout, keep an eye out for them.

    Where’s the optical drive bay?

      Where it belongs. In the scrapyard 😉

      Joking aside, there are other cases offering full size drive bays. Not every case has to meet everyone’s desires. I for one can’t stand RGB LED’s or those garish logos, but others might like these things.

      It’s hanging out in 2009.

      Considering the size, it’s a fair question.

    Unless you really want people to know you are an MSI fan, I think they could have removed the side panel logo and put it on the front at that size and got rid of the huge logo they have up there now.

    If they want their logo on there a lot they could have removed those flat heads and made them thumb screws with a subtle MSI logo on the screw heads. The last thing anyone needs is the ability to torque down those tempered glass screws until it breaks the glass.

    How does the air get in?

      They’ve got pretty big feet on that thing so I’m guessing the intake is through the bottom. Just be careful with your shag carpet.

        There’s something that looks very much like a radiator mount in the front though, right behind the tempered glass…

    It’s practically MAG-ical.

      I-MAG-ine that!

    Looks like the same OEM as Aerocool.

    Not necessarily a bad thing, they do some reasonable cases.
