Case Build & Finished Product

Built or new out of the box, you would never know as the S500 TG's front panel is solid steel and has no visual difference when viewed straight on.

Looking into the side without the panel installed and we can see that everything went in without a hitch. We replaced the rear exhaust fan with our H60 AIO for testing our case testing build. The cable pockets and cable tie-downs keep everything tidy so that very little can be seen on the component side, as evidenced here. Here you can also see the open window of the PSU shroud and the modular connection, as I mentioned before.

Peeking at the rear I/O side of the chassis, and everything went in as expected with no major issues with installation. The only niggle I had was the PSU installation, which had to be fished through the single grommeted passthrough leading to the cable management side of the chassis due to lack of access form the rear area.

The cable management of the S500 TG was painless. Plain and simple, there is such a generous space here that even the troughs along the bottom and rear edge allow for hiding of larger bundles of cabling to keep everything looking nice and tidy.

With everything back together, we see that the clear glass allows full view of your rig even when powered off and non-lit. This means you are going to want to pay special attention to errant cables as they will be easy to spot.

Powering the system on, and we now have the RGB in full effect. The visual aesthetic is nice with the S500 TG as it has clean lines and overall makes for an excellent system presentation. Including a few LED lighting strips to the chassis chamber would likely do a lot to brighten things up a bit more and help highlight your high-end build should you choose.
