The MasterCase H500P Midi-Tower by Cooler Master with its hard glass side panel and the two large fans illuminated with RGB LEDs is very trendy. The case is large, spacious, modular and offers a design that is both futuristic and archaic. One of the special features of the tower is the possibility to install the graphics card vertically. Thus, the often impressive cooler design of the pixel accelerator can be displayed.
Thanks to its spacious interior, the Medium Tower offers space for custom water cooling, but can also keep the hardware in check with conventional air cooling. This is where the two huge pre-installed 200 mm fans come into their own, which can be supplemented by additional fans.
The design includes elements in a military look and combines them with a touch of futurism to create a good looking midi tower. The RGB lighting of the pre-installed fans and the tempered glass side panel are more or less standard for enclosures in 2017, but I have to give B-note prints for the front and lid where acrylic glass is used. With a case in this price range, I personally would have expected hard glass there as well. It should also be noted that the grey cladding of the tower looks good, but is made of plastic. This makes the case relatively light for its size, but you have to be careful when moving the tower. Especially worth mentioning is the possibility to install a graphics card vertically. This allows the cooler design of the GPU to be presented. The RGB lighting of the hardware and the pre-installed fans can be synchronized via software, making the Midi Tower a great showcase.
Scope of Delivery
In addition to the very well packed tower, the Cooler Master H500P comes with a box for accessories, cable ties and a small manual. With the additional carrying bag, the tower can easily be lifted out of the packaging and you are more mobile later if you want to pack the tower for longer distances.
