    There's another case named "H500" on the market. We're reviewing Cooler Master's H500M case, including thermal and noise benchmarks.

    H500P Mesh on Amazon: geni.us/j1AnO5
    The Cooler Master H500M case is different from both the H500P and H500P Mesh, the latter of which we held in high regard in our review. The H500M takes many of the positive traits of the H500P Mesh, including its default airflow configuration (being mesh-ventilated), but also adds ARGB LEDs and a couple of new embellishments -- like more tempered glass.
    Our Cooler Master H500M review compares it to the H500P, H500P Mesh, NZXT H500, 500D, and everything else named "500." We talk about the best PC cases for gaming builds in 2018, presenting airflow benchmarks for each.

Just saw Bitwits review of this case and came here. Both reviews mention some different things, so I'd advise everyone check his out too, as this one doesn't mention some important things. I think I might go with this case for my build in the near future, despite it being $50-100 more than I wanted to spend. Few cases have caught my eye and had so many nice features as this one!

I was extremely interested in this case until I found out that you need to remove both side panels and the top-left cable shroud panel in order to take off the front panel. There is absolutely no way I'm doing that every time I want to clean the dust filters, especially when the H500P Mesh allows you to pop the front panel off on its own. Why would you regress like this, Cooler Master? So disappointing.

Question - would it be possible to add 2 more of the same 200mm case fans on top, and wire them all to the fan hub so the front controller would control all 4? Just wondering as this is what I’m looking to do. Thanks in advance

I've ordered that nice case for my new rig to go with a 9900K CPU and an Asus RTX 2080 Ti Dual OC. For cooling I also ordered a AIO Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R RGB. I'm wondering if I can add 3 more 120mm fans on top in a push/pull sort of configuration. Any advice? Will they fit inside the top panel?

I have an h500p. I love it. I have glass hot miesha nd no cooling issues with 2x 200mm, 3x120mm and 1x140mm. My i7 8700 has a 240mm corsair liquid cooler and using a evga 1070 ftw. Cpu stays under 50c and gpu around 76-78 under heavy loads and stable. The fans never spin fast and stays whisper quiet. Deffenitly nothing to complain about

So close to perfect for me.. I am an original HAF owner and have been wanting a good replacement for years now. I like the redesign on the front over the look of the 500P.. but here is what i would change.. -Put steel back instead of the glass -Mesh on top instead of glass -Use the original top fan bracket over the redesign. That's it.. Like i said almost perfect for me.

The H500P Mesh and H500M are Cooler Master begrudgingly listening to Steve. I mean yes other people ripped on them too but there were plenty of others who didn't go a savage. I still find it cute that they released the H500P Mesh really quietely and never told GN and it was like a blip on the radar. Someone at CM was salty as hell lol

They really should add LEDs to the back with those cable management shrouds. Also, a flat head is easier to use than a philips head and less likely to strip the screw.

No 5.25" bays, not getting my cash. Why can't we get and updated version of the HAF932 with USB 3.1 and ditch the SATA? RGB is also very dumb and way too much focus on that aspect. Yeah, I said it. I have my computer in a bedroom and who wants a glowing pulsating beacon when you're trying to sleep, seriously? These cases today are so lame and Cooler Master isn't the only offender.

Such a great case; I’ve been waiting to see this properly released and reviewed since it was first announced. If no one releases anything better before my next build, then this will be its home. :) Those larger mesh sections that also provide increased distance between the panels and fans look amazing. I also prefer the other changes they made to the aesthetics from the H500P and H500P Mesh. For me, it’s all about airflow, functionality and size, and aesthetics; this case appears to deliver on all counts. As for the rear cable cover plates, I’d definitely try to use them if I wasn’t facing that right side toward the wall to allow for a cleaner look through the right tempered glass panel. That said, I'd probably choose to face the right side toward the wall to show off the components of the build.

Any recommendations for a case with a mesh front panel, takes up to ATX Mobo's, can hold at or upwards of 3x 3.5" HDD's and is watercooling friendly? Our selection over here in Australia is pretty sparce. Price point is irrelevant.

OC3D did show the right side glass panel isn't so useless if you install the shrouds for hiding the cables. It looks really clean but shows your SSDs mounted there. I don't think you do this case justice here.

As an owner of the original Haf series cases I think this model is finally a worthy successor. I will admit that I have a soft spot for coolermaster cases since they were the first ones I used when I started building computers. Glad they have made the improvements and now I can feel ok about buying it not only for nostalgic reasons. I'm hoping that a worthy successor comes out for the Cosmos series eventually as well. Wasn't super impressed with their reboot of that case. Hopeful though, since it looks like they are finally starting to listen to customer feedback.

I know your test bench is air cooling focused but I feel like Cooler Master has stepped up their game with a few additional features for watercooling focused builds you didn't mention. The gpu sag support, pump mount, rad support and reservoir mount come to mind. Those might be enough to justify the extra $50 amongst your viewers. I had to watch a couple other reviews to even know about those features, might be worth mentioning in the future. Love your channel, keep up the good work.
