Thermaltake A500 Aluminium and Glass Edition Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 3 weeks ago
Today is an exciting day, as we’ve got the new Thermaltake A500 chassis in for review! While we see many Thermaltake chassis hit the market each year, this one is a little bit different. It ditches some of the more utilitarian design features that they’re known for, in favour of a sleeker, more exquisite, aluminium and tempered glass finish. The A500 is out to turn heads and drop jaws with its good looks, but does it flounder or flourish with this new approach?
Admittedly, the A500 is going up against some strong competition from the likes of Phanteks, Lian Li, InWin, and a few others. Priced at a bit over £200, it’s not exactly an impulse buy. However, for a premium chassis, it’s really going to have to deliver top end quality to command that price. Let’s dive in for a closer look and see what’s on offer!
- TT Premium
- Sleek Aluminium Design
- Dust Reduction
- Aluminium Modular Structural Statement with Two Tempered Glass Panels
- Tool-Free Installation
- Superior Hardware Support
- Excellent Cooling Capability
- Handy I/O Ports
- DMD: Dismantlable Modular Design
