Cooler Master MasterBox K500 PC Case Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
The Cooler Master PC case range is spectacular. It has a wide range of chassis from their budget-friendly mini-ITX models, right up to their expensive flagship full-towers, and so much more in between. The new MasterBox K500 sits on the more affordable end of the scale, while promises many of the design features of the more premium MasterCase series.
Affordable it may be, but it still packs RGB lighting, a tempered glass side panel, fantastic cooling support, room for huge graphics cards and coolers, cable management, a PSU shroud and more. It seems the MasterBox is more competitive with the MasterCase series than ever before!
- Efficient Thermal Performance: A partial meshed front panel and ventilation holes on top of the case give your parts fresh air to breathe.
- RGB Lighting Effects: Two 120mm RGB fans behind the mesh, two RGB lighting accents on the front panel and the RGB power button create a lighting system to show off your unique gaming build.
- RGB Lighting Control: One RGB controller can directly customize the lighting even without an RGB-ready motherboard.
- Edge-to-Edge Tempered Glass Side Panel: Show off your build in style and have easy access to your components.
- Versatile Cooling Options: Support for up to six 120mm fans and front and rear liquid cooling ensure you don’t have to compromise on performance.
- Graphics Card Support Up To 400mm: Supports the latest, widest cards you can get.
- Stay Black, Stay Neat: Let your system stand out with a full black coating and PSU cover.
