Thermaltake’s CTE T500 full tower case is finally hitting the market

Back at CES in January, Thermaltake officially announced the CTE T500 chassis. Now six months later, the case is officially ready for launch, offering plenty of space for high-end builds. 

The CTE (Centralized Thermal Efficiency) Form Factor employs a 90-degree rotation of the motherboard to establish more efficient airflow pathways towards the primary heat sources. This design brings the CPU and graphics card closer to the cool air generated from the front and rear panels with independent airflow paths. Multiple cold air intakes and hot air exhausts at the top side ensure optimal airflow.

The CTE T500 TG ARGB (available in black and white) comes with three pre-installed CT140 ARGB fans, while the CTE T500 Air (also available in black and white) includes three pre-installed CT140 fans. These PWM fans can spin up to 1500RPM and feature specially tuned fan blades for enhanced airflow. These cases offer extensive customisation for various cooling options, including air, AIO liquid, and custom liquid cooling solutions. It can accommodate a total of 11x 120mm or 140mm fans and supports up to 420mm radiators at the front, 360mm radiators at the rear, and 120mm radiators in the roof. Additionally, the CTE T500 series includes fan brackets for the front and rear sides, as well as a pump and reservoir bracket.

With its exceptional hardware expandability, the CTE T500 can accommodate an E-ATX motherboard, up to a 195mm tall CPU cooler, a 385mm long GPU, a 180mm long PSU, and up to 6x 2.5″ SSDs or 4x 3.5″ HDDs. The Velcro straps and cable clips around the tray assist in cable management, while the removable dust filters on all ventilation areas protect the system from dust. Moreover, the CTE T500 is equipped with an I/O panel featuring 2x USB-A 3.0 ports, a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, and an HD audio jack.
