Thermaltake S500 Steel TG Case Review
Peter Donnell / 3 months ago
Ditch those plastics and go for raw steel. That seems to be the main goal for Thermaltake with their latest premium line case, the S500 Steel TG. Rather than go for lightweight aluminium, they’ve opted for thick steel panels for that rugged look. Rather than dash the case full of RGB, which is the current market trend, they’ve opted to black things out this time. Sure, you could add RGB if you wanted, but we’re not going to.
Thermaltake S500 Steel TG
Featuring support for large 200mm fans and with plenty of ventilation, it’s built for performance. For those who want a rig that looks as serious as the jobs your PC will be given. Of course, with tempered glass and that matte black steel finish, it’s hardly bland to look at, but there’s definitely a more mature approach to design here than some of their more outlandish models.
- Sleek Steel Design – S Series Steel Tempered Glass Edition Chassis is built to be sleek and minimalistic. The clean steel front and top panels of S500 Steel TG hide the ample air intakes, and the removable power supply cover gives you plenty of space to route cables and clean up the build.

Please be aware that since the courier opted to drop what I can only assume was an Anvil from a great height on the parcel, I will temporarily be using stock images for this review. However, I do have the case here for reference and will update the images in the very near future. Despite what appears to be a massive accident, the damage is amazingly minor, but enough to ruin my lovely pictures. However, if this case wasn’t made from thick steel, it would have been a fine pile of dust. It’s bloody strong.
