Thermaltake S500 TG Review 9

Thermaltake S500 TG Review

Packaging & Contents »

Introduction


I would like to thank Thermaltake for supplying the review sample.


The Thermaltake A500 turned out to be a pretty popular chassis with its aluminium, glass, and steel material mix. While it is well known that Thermaltake focuses heavily on liquid-cooling capabilities with its higher-end enclosures, like the A500, doing so also tends to translate into fairly hefty price tags. Enter the S500 TG we are reviewing today, which substitutes aluminium for steel and take a more sensible approach to the overall design and internal functionality while keeping the core DNA that makes the A500 so intriguing, all at a price tag that should make the mainstream market take notice.
