Conclusion of the Cooler MasterBox MasterBox Q500L Review
So can we recommend the Coolermaster MasterBox Q500L after this review? Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to this question. The MasterBox Q500L is a compact yet spacious midi tower that supports ATX mainboards and other high-end components despite its slim footprint. Also the cable management is not limited by the small size. What we didn’t like so much are the old side windows made of simple acrylic and the impractical dust filter on the underside. Also the material quality is in places rather comparable with a 30 Euro case. Last but not least there is the rather moderate airflow. If you want to have acceptable temperatures, you have to invest some time in the right fan arrangement.
If you are looking for a case that combines ATX support with a narrow footprint, the Cooler MasterBox Q500L could be a possible candidate. Owners of high-end hardware, however, should prefer a case with better airflow.
