Cooler Master MasterBox K500 Review


Coming in at just US$ 79.99, the Cooler Master MasterBox K500 is brilliant entry point to RGB lighting and tempered glass. While only two RGB fans are included with the case, given that semi-decent RGB fans cost around US$ 12 each it’s not at all a bad offering. The storage offerings are rather limited and PSU installation can be a bit of a battle, but the case offers a good feature set for its target market. The build quality is what we’ve come to expect of Cooler Master, without any sharp edges to slice fingers during assembly. Overall, if you’re in the market for a sub US$ 100 case, the Cooler Master MasterBox K500 is worthy consideration.


Affordable option for tempered glass and RGB lighting PSU installation is tricky
Massive cut out for CPU cooler back plate Paintjob is a fingerprint magnet
Good cable management options Limited storage expansion
Decent build quality Styling might not appeal to everyone
