ASUS TUF Gaming GT501 E-ATX Gaming Chassis Review

Final Thoughts


How Much Does it Cost?

The ASUS TUF GT501 Tempered Glass RGB Chassis is available now from most major retailers. It’s priced between £130-150 depending on where you look. However, it’s not hard to find good deals. I saw it at Scan for just £135.98, which I think is pretty reasonable given the features, specifications, and quality on offer.

Overview

I must say, I’m pleasantly surprised by this chassis in so many ways. So often we see “ROG” branded chassis that are simply a few bits of logo printed on other brands successful models. Sure, that’s absolutely fine and they look great. However, the TUF GT501 pushes the boat out to do something unique, and I love that even more.

Build Quality

This is a robust chassis, make no mistake. From those chunky 30 KG supporting handles to the hard-wearing rubber feel, it’s certainly well made. I like that they made the front panel metal too, rather than opting for tempered glass or plastic like so many do these days. If you stub your toe on this thing you’ll be cursing for days. The interior gets lots of love too, with a large PSU shroud, and modular brackets throughout. It’s certainly well thought out and engineered in general.

Features

ASUS has crammed a lot into… well, into a big space, so that’s not hard. However, with good cable routing, loads of storage bays and four high-quality pre-installed fans. Furthermore, it’ll support quite a bit of custom-loop cooling, or even just huge AIO coolers if that’s what you desire. The addition of some nicely done RGB lighting from the fans. That smoked tempered glass. The metal flake paint. It all adds up to a premium product throughout.

Should I Buy One?

I am awash with amazing PC cases this year it seems. Of course, the TUF GT501 is another welcome addition to a great lineup so far. You don’t have to be an ASUS fan and you don’t’ have to have TUF Alliance hardware to enjoy it. This is a great chassis throughout, it looks great, performs great, and I think the price is competitive for what it is too. Now, the real question is are you strong enough to carry it when it’s fully loaded?

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
