Focus on airflow and more

During its Summer Summit event, Cooler Master has announced that the company is working on a new generation of HAF (High Air Flow) PC cases, and HAF 500 is one of those new cases.

While the flagship HAF PC case is still a mystery, and Cooler Master has only said "it is in the works", the new HAF 500 PC case may appeal to those that are looking for a high-end PC case with a focus on air-flow.

While the precise release date has not been announced, Cooler Master shared a lot of details about the HAF 500, including a picture that shows the new PC case in all its glory. According to this picture, the HAF 500 is built out of steel, mesh, and plastic, with a tempered glass side panel. The entire case measures 516x224x510mm.

The front of the case is a large mesh panel with two 200mm ARGB fans, and it also comes with a single 120mm rear Sickle Flow ARGB fan and one 120mm Sickle Flow non-LED fan at the top of the HDD cage. The one non-LED 120mm Sickle Flow fan is used to provide fresh air to the graphics card, as you can see in the picture below.

As is the case with a focus on air-flow, it comes as no surprise it supports up to two 200mm fans at the top, two 200mm ones at the front, and single 120mm at the rear, and 120mm on top of the HDD cage. The radiator support includes up to 360mm radiator at the top, up to 360mm one at the front, and 120mm one at the rear.

It will be available in black and white color options, supports up to E-ATX motherboards, has seven expansion slots, supports two 3.5"/2.5" drives in the cage, and has two 2.5" dedicated SSD mounting places. You also get two USB 3.2 Gen1 and one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports, audio in, and ARGB Hub.

 Cooler Master will not reveal any information about the release date or the price but we will surely keep an eye out for this one, as well as the upcoming new HAF flagship PC case.
