Inside Construction of the Cooler MasterBox MB500
There is no room for E-ATX mainboards inside the case, but ATX mainboards can be installed without any problems. Graphics cards with a size of up to 400 mm and the CPU cooler up to a height of 160 mm can be used. For cable management there are many openings and holders for cable ties. The openings are unfortunately not protected, at least some rubber would have done the case good and made it look better.
Unfortunately, the upper side cannot be removed in order to facilitate the installation of the hardware. As already mentioned, the glass pane is only held by two screws and only hooked into the lower area. This facilitates assembly. The other side panel is mounted with normal knurled screws.
Two 2.5-inch drives can be installed in the interior, for which two dismountable mounting surfaces are installed. If you don’t have a lot of hard disks and want to have a tidy interior, it’s a good idea to remove them. You still have the option of using two 3.5″ or 2.5″ hard drives or SSDs. The mounting frame in the area of the power supply unit can accommodate both sizes.
