The chassis ships in the usual brown cardboard box with an image of the unit on front, while the rear goes into additional detail and lists a few marketing bulletin points in several languages. On the side, you get a full frontal view and a detailed specifications list.
Two Styrofoam spacers hold the case in place, and a plastic bag protects it from scratches and fingerprints during the packing process at the factory. Cooler Master has also included a foam bit that holds an additional cover.
You will get the usual set of black screws along with plenty of zip ties. Cooler Master also includes an in-line RGB controller and a cleaning cloth for good measure. While the Mastercase H500 comes with a metal-mesh front out of the box, you will also find that aforementioned acrylic cover for added value. This is for all those who would rather have an unobstructed view of the two 200 mm RGB fans in the front.
