Cooler Master MASTERCASE H500P MESH WHITE Review
About 15-20 years ago when doing a custom PC build, there was mostly only white colour PC cabinets/chassis available. A black coloured PC case was difficult to find and expensive too, mostly because earlier CRT monitor manufacturers use to product mostly white coloured products and white was the default theme for custom build.
Slowly things began to change, especially after introduction of LCD monitors, now display manufactures started using black pigmented ABS plastic for display housing as the white plastic body use to turn yellow and cracks after some time due to UV degradation. Now with black coloured monitors the black coloured PC cases became as the mainstream colour option.
Now history is repeating itself and white PC chassis are slowing started appearing in premium segment. Today we are reviewing one such interesting white case by Cooler Master from their well-known MASTERCASE product line, the Cooler Master MASTERCASE H500P MESH WHITE Case. A full tower white coloured case for a classic milk chocolate type custom PC build.
Cooler Master MASTERCASE H500P MESH WHITE Case comes with two 200mm RGB fans in front along with light grey tinted tempered glass side panel, a vertical GPU mount option, PSU and back cable management cover for clean build and more.
Now let's have a look on what features does Cooler Master H500P MESH WHITE case have for us.

With the full white colour and proper air flow design, the Cooler Master MASTERCASE H500P MESH WHITE Case is definitely a great choice for pc builders looking for a white colour theme build with RGB lighting, as case fans supports all the major motherboard RGB lighting.
Case have a vertical GPU mount support and you need to buy a riser cable separately, but is not suggested for air-cooled GPUs, as it results higher GPU temperature. But liquid cooled GPU owners should go for this mounting as it looks great. This case is one of the best air flow designed case and I am loving the whole white colour build theme.
Finally at a price tag of Rs.12850(approx.) Cooler Master MASTERCASE H500P MESH WHITE Case with RGB is the best eye catching / showcase type build case offering great looks and nice air flow with very low noise. Best suitable for gaming and workstation type builds
