Thermaltake Divider 500 TG Air Black; Ya Gotta Keep ‘Em Separated
A Redesigned And More Affordable ThermalTake 500 TG ARGB
The new Thermaltake Divider 500 TG Air, in either black or white, will look somewhat familiar on the outside but the inside offers more cable management features and enhanced airflow. It also comes with less fans preinstalled, a pair of 120mm as opposed to four 120mm fans, of which two were ARGB on the TT 500. This is a good thing for those who want serious cooling as the Divider 500 TG Air can fit five 120/140mm fans or 360/280mm radiator on the front and a 120mm on the back so you won’t be spending extra money on fans you have no intention of using. That doesn’t even cover the top, which can fit your choice of two 120/140mm or a 240/280mm radiator.
TechPowerUp did have a few disappointments in their review when it came to the spacing of components, such as the fact that installing a large radiator in the front limits you to a 270 mm GPU and they felt that a slight change in the HDD mounting plate on the side would have made it perfect to mount a pump or reservoir. Also, fans of Morry sized CPU coolers might not like being limited to 155mm if you opt for the steel side panel or 170 mm with the much better looking windowed side panel.
Do you like the functional and spacious layout of the Divider 500 with its split window design, but also care about airflow? The Divider 500 TG Air will fit that bill perfectly. Alongside the unique core design, the metal panel's vent shape is not only different, but also surprisingly good-looking.
