Cooler Master Unleashes MasterCase H500P (Updated)

Updated, 2/27/2018, 8:35am PT: Cooler Master released a Mesh White version of the H500P. In addition to a new white exterior, the Mesh White H500P also features two 200mm RGB fans, as opposed to the non-RGB fans included in the original version. It costs the same $150 as before.

Cooler Master announced the MasterCase H500P, which is the latest in its MasterCase series of chassis.

It’s plain to see the Cooler Master MasterCase H500P is designed for showcasing your system build, putting your graphics card front and center in the middle of the tempered glass side panel.

The case features a steel and plastic construction and measures 544 x 242 x 542mm. This chassis can accommodate up motherboards up to 12" x 10.7"  and full-length graphics cards up to 412mm.

Behind the tempered glass side panel you will find a total of nine expansion slots, seven traditional slots, and two slots for vertically mounting a dual-slot GPU (PCI-e X16 riser cable required). This chassis has mounting locations for two 3.25" and 2.5" drives inside the built-in PSU tunnel, as well as a pair of mounting locations behind the motherboard tray for 2.5" hard drives.

This mid-tower case ships with two 200mm intake fans and a single 140mm exhaust fan. The chassis supports up to seven 120 / 140mm, or four 200mm fans. Radiators and all-in-one coolers up to 360mm can be installed in the top and front of this chassis. Those of you who prefer CPU air cooling will be able to install coolers up to 190mm in height. Under the PSU cover you will find a mounting location for an ATX PS2 power supply.

In a world where USB 3.1 Type C is all the rage, we find it a bit odd that the MasterCase is equipped with only two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.

The H500P is compatible with any RGB-equipped motherboard fitted with industry standard 4-pin RGB lighting headers, including; Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, Asrock RGB LED, and MSI's Mystic Light. This chassis also comes equipped with a three way fan splitter.

The MasterCase H500P is available now for $150.

    Coolermaster needs more Full tower or Large Mid-tower cases.. All of these high core count cpu's require triple rads.

    I think this is the best looking coolermaster case, better than the c700p imo. If it performs well, this will be a huge hit with the enthusiasts.

    Love those 2 200mm fans in the front. Nice job coolermaster ;)

    Such a sad, sad case. When I moved away from Antec cases I went into Cooler Master cases, and it was the HAF 912 Elite. I loved it at first as it had those 2 massive 200mm fans, I even went out and brought another black 200mm fan to replace the red one but hated it as there was no real dust filters and AIO water cooling was next to none so I moved on to a Storm Scout 2, then they released the advanced version but I'm not going to mention that buyer remorse. They are basically riding on the fame of the HAF series and trying to be relevant SMH. Gamer Nexus did a great review on this case outlining my exact thoughts.

    The whole tempered glass was an after thought. Phanteks Enthoo Evolv is how tempered glass side panels should be done! The H500P glass panels gap when its closed is laughable, did they even notice it before putting it on the ma. The spacing between the front fans and the vents are also laughable.

    And they completely missed the point of the PSU dust filter. No one wants to do a reach around to remove a PSU filter, we need to be able to remove it from the front.

    I loved that users can now use triple 140mm fans in the front and top but that's about all I love for the case.
