The Phanteks Eclipse P500A For Air Cooling Fans

There is absolutely no reason not to incorporate a 420mm radiator into a system build in the Phanteks Eclipse P500A D-RGB, but with the capacity to house seven 120mm fans or six 140mm fans this is a great case for air cooling.  The front panel is made of what Phanteks is calling Ultra-Fine Performance Mesh works as an intake filter without overly interfering with air flow and it looks rather sharp as well.

As you might expect from the amount of fans you can install, the case is fairly large and can fit up to an E-ATX motherboard and can house an impressive 10 drives of 2.5″ or 3.5″.  You should be able to fit any existing GPU in without issue and if you are so inclined you can purchase an adapter to vertically mount a three slot GPU.  There is also the option to install two complete systems in the case, again by purchasing accessories and a special PSU. 

The wide open design is great for airflow but not so much for noise, KitGuru found the case incredibly loud and were disappointed that PWM fans and a controller are also purchased separately.  The RGBs are impressive, as you can see in the video portion of the review they posted which is available here.

This D-RGB version has three RGB fans as well as lighting in the front and along the power supply shroud, while the cheaper base model has no RGB. The killer new feature being pushed by Phanteks is the Ultra-Fine Performance Mesh front panel which means the P500A does not require a front filter!
