Thermaltake Ceres 500 TG ARGB Showcase Build

Thermaltake sent me a stack of PC components for a Featured Build, including the Ceres 500 TG ARGB Snow that Thermaltake launched at CES 2023. Take a second look at KitGuru's Thermaltake coverage from CES and you are sure to spot a number of the products that feature in our Ceres 500 PC build, so let's get cracking!

The Ceres 500 features four 140mm CT140 fans with ARGB lighting, while the combination of heavily perforated panels and Tempered Glass means you get the full impact of the ARGB lighting.

With the case stripped down you can see the CT140 fans do not require a control hub for the PWM or ARGB and as a result the lines are very clean and simple. At the front there is a metal accent plate that contrasts with the Snow White of the main case, in a similar manner to the cable grommets and PCIe blanking plates.

Here we have some detail images of the GPU support bracket that is helping out with our mighty Gigabyte RTX 4080 Gaming OC. We also show the optional LCD panel that can display a photo of your choice or data such as CPU temperature.

The Thermaltake Ceres 500 TG ARGB is available for £159.95 from Overclockers UK HERE.

KitGuru says: Thermaltake's Ceres 500 is Bling-tastic and a strong candidate for lovers of ARGB lighting.
