Phanteks Launches Eclipse P500A with 1mm Mesh and SK PWM Fans

Phanteks today announced the release of the Eclipse P500A, a new addition to the high airflow performance Eclipse lineup, and alongside it the release of the new SK PWM fans. The P500A is a premium mid-tower that delivers high airflow performance with style. It features the same Ultra-Fine Performance mesh front panel as the award winning P400A and P300A cases known for their high airflow. The Ultra-Fine Performance mesh is engineered using an advanced sheet metal technique from Phanteks that enables high density perforations of just 1 mm to ensure effective dust-filtering and maximum airflow.

The P500A's versatile interior layout offers high-end features such as extensive air/water cooling solution (up to 420 mm radiators), massive storage capabilities (up to 10 HDDs and 3 SSDs) and even dual system support (requires PH-ITXKT_R01 & Revolt X power supply). The P500A comes with a hinged tempered glass side panel to showcase all your components and easy to remove for easier installation or maintenance. With a rich feature set and flexible interior, it's the perfect chassis for people demanding more than the standard mainstream with options for future expansion.
The Eclipse P500A will be available in 2 variations, a D-RGB model that comes with 3x 140 mm addressable RGB fans included, a D-RGB light trim on the PSU shroud and integrated D-RGB controller with color presets for €129,90 / $129.99 / £119,99 (available in Black and White color), and a base model that comes with 2x 140 mm fans included, without RGB integration for €99,90 / $99.99 / £94,99 (available in Black).

The SK PWM fans feature a nine-blade design that offers high airflow and a quiet cooling solution. The SK fans come with PWM capabilities built-in for precise speed control, rigid frame to prevent vibrations, and integrated LED for lighting solutions (DRGB models only). Maximize the potential of the P500A mesh panel by adding SK fans to allow for more airflow and cooling performance.

  • P500A (Base model, Black) - $99.99 / €99.90 / £94.99

still prefer the fabric on my p600s
At least manufacturers are starting to pay attention to the quality and thickness of the mesh they put on their cases, after GN has humiliated so many of them for either using mesh that is too thick, or has so many layers, that airflow is killed.

I honestly wonder how many of these manufacturers actually test their products in the configurations they ship. I get the impression the answer is "not many".

nice,though I prefer no tempered glass.

also,in p600s the dust filter is offset a couple of mm's,fans really breathe through.I notice no significant airflow decrease when I put the filter and mesh on.

That's because Phanteks actually tests their cases.

cant see what the situation is here,the pics don't show a filter

edit:watched a kitguru video,no dust filter in the front at all,top has a normal flat one.p600s has thick frame filters both front and top.they measure 1cm


it's all about the looks,but the fans are gonna get dusty pretty often

I'm really glad this case was out of stock when I was case shopping recently. Found the 600s and went with that.

So how exactly is the RGB Ram getting the power to light up if there's no power being supplied to the Motherboard in the render? :rolleyes:

Read the write up and it states an iTX secondary system.
