The NZXT H500 Midi-Tower in DetailThe front of this case is clean and minimalist while the I/O panel is located on the top of this dream case. This panel comes with two USB 3.0 ports and two audio inputs as well as a discrete power button. Cable management is also a breeze thanks to the 23 mm of space.
The sleek black interior also offers plenty of space, meaning that ATX-, Micro-ATX- and Mini-ITX motherboards can also hold up to seven expansion cards. Next, up to two 3,5" drives can be installed in the drive cage. Two 2,5" brackets are available to the rear of the motherboard tray or on the power supply shroud. Dust filters are available in abundance, located on the right side panel, below the front panel, on the PSU and on the top of the case.
The NZXT H500 Midi-Tower provides plenty of space for AiO water cooling and even a custom loop. The front or the top of the case are both capable of holding 280 mm radiators. As an alternative to the two pre-installed 120 mm fans on the top, users are also free to install 140 mm fans instead. For those wanting to install a tower-style CPU cooler, the case offers up to 165 mm of clearance. The graphics card can be up to 381 mm in length.

The quality is good, but keep in mind the price bracket.
Still, we only see one path for NZXT’s H500 and H500i, and that is the one leading to become the most popular compact, affordable ‘clean’ mid-tower of its generation. Build quality is great (all steel) and the finish is actually fantastic for this pricepoint. It has all the modern features we’d expect such as dust filters, a PSU shroud, great cable management, compact dimensions while still retaining options for full-size GPU’s and watercooling, and we see some very decent evolution for example in the way the tempered glass panel is mounted without any visible screws (at least from the front and side), as well as the way the rear panel goes on.read more...
