The MasterBox MB500 from Cooler Master in DetailThe MasterBox MB500 is designed for mounting ATX- or Micro-ATX motherboards. In spite of the case's compact dimensionsm the case offers plenty of room on the inside and, as a result, the option of installing up to two water cooling radiators. Apart from the standard location in the back for holding a 120 mm radiator, the front can also hold a 360 mm radiator.
If users prefer to cool with water, the Cooler Master MasterBox MB500 is equally gifted in the watercooling department. In the front users can install two 140 mm- or three 120 mm fans, with two 120 mm at the top. The rear of the case offers a pre-installed 120 mm fan. Internally, there are still two 3.5" bays available, although of course you're free to put 2.5" drives here if you prefer.
Plenty of Space for HardwareThe interior of the MasterBox MB500 is designed in the standard fashion and impresses with its attention to detail. The drives can be installed and removed without tools, the power supply sucks cool air through a dust filter in the bottom of the case and there is an opening in the motherboard tray to allow users to change the cooler or CPU on their installed motherboard with ease. This isn't a feature all too common in this price segment. In the front of the case, Cooler Master has also thought to provide another dust filter. Air inlets above and the mesh panel below ensure your hardware receives plenty of fresh air.
The build quality is excellent and the compartmentalisation of the case leaves plenty of options open for installing a powerful system and a whole load of hardware. The maximum length for graphics cards is 400 mm, the CPU cooler can be up to 160 mm tall and the MasterBox MB500 provides 180 mm of space beneath the shroud. This amounts to more than enough space for even high-performance hardware. The I/O panel provides 2x USB 3.0 along with a mic/headphone output in addition to the obligatory standard connections.
