Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of PC components and peripherals, offering performance at a reasonable price. With the TG5 Pro RGB, Sharkoon now presents the reworked version of its RGB illuminated bestseller. Like the original version, the new ATX midi tower presents itself in with an elegant glass-look and with plenty of space inside for the high-performance hardware components. In contrast to the original TG5 RGB, the fans have been replaced with the new addressable models, providing a more extensive illumination.

To optimally present the installed hardware, both the side and front panels of the TG5 Pro RGB are made of tempered glass. So nothing disturbs the view into the inside of the case, the power supply, the cabling and the hard drives can all be concealed in the power supply tunnel or behind the mainboard tray. Four pre-installed 120 mm fans with transparent fan trays and semi-transparent blades all provide an all-encompassing illumination for the hardware. Via the pre-installed controller in combination with the software of compatible mainboards, up to eight connected LED components can be set and controlled. The mainboard must have an RGB connection with the pinout 5 V-D-coded-G or 5 V-D-G. Even without the appropriate connection, up to twenty lighting effects can be selected using a dedicated button above the front panel.



Maximal Airflow with Locations for up to Seven Fans
Apart from the atmospheric illumination, the four pre-installed 120 mm fans also provide a strong throughput of air for effectively cooling the installed hardware. Three fans are pre-installed behind the front panel, and another fan is already mounted on the rear panel. If required, three more 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be installed under the top panel. For enthusiasts of water-cooling systems, the front panel of the TG5 Pro RGB offers up to 5.2 cm space for a radiator. Thanks to extra-long slots, the HDD/SSD Cage, which is inside the power supply tunnel, can be variably positioned to create additional space.

Spacious Design Inside
The TG5 Pro RGB offers a spacious interior for high-performance components. There is enough room for graphics cards with a length of up to 40 cm and CPU coolers with a height of up to 16.7 cm. Power supplies with a maximum length of up to 20.5 cm can also be accommodated. In addition, enough space has been allowed for data storage with installation locations for up to three 3.5" drives or four 2.5" drives.

Price and Availability
The Sharkoon TG5 Pro RGB is now available at the manufacturer's suggested retail price of 84.90 euros.

Lose the glass on the front and replace it with mesh, then it might be alright.

Worried about illumination instead of airflow, I think most people read reviews before buying a case but who knows...

Out of several case mfrs who share the same designs (and probably OEMs), Sharkoon has the nicest renders... but boy I wonder what's behind the CG eyecandy :D
I mean, similar designations are available under the brand Modecom locally and they're... really budget, for the most part. If it's on the level of Aerocool, then cya with your 85 euros, next :p
Was initially ( = summer 2017 ) planning to import their BW9000 all the way from Germany, for 100 euros no less with shipping, only to see the. Exact. Same. Thing. Sold as a Modecom locally. For cheaper. After a substantial amount of time though. And not that it really mattered by then, because cheaper (and much better ventilated) locally sold stuff turned out to be VERY okay. Hey, a Tesseract could be had for 28 euros with airflow no worse than that 100 euro coffin...
EDIT May actually be Jonsbo but not sure
