Cooler Master has officially revealed their new MasterBox K500L PC case, using the industry standard ATX form factor to offer support for most consumer-grade motherboards and system components.  

The chassis will ship with two variants, the MCB-K500L-KNNN-S00, which offers two steel side panels and the MCB-K500L-KANN-S00 which will ship with a tinted acrylic side panel on the left-hand side. Both options will be available for £54.99 in the UK. 

Cooler master has confirmed that a higher-end MasterBox K500 (non-L) variant will be released in the future with a more advanced feature set, which will include RGB LED fans and an RGB LED controller. At this time the pricing and release date of the MasterBox K500 is unknown.

The K500L will ship with three included fans, a single 120mm non-LED fan on the rear of the chassis and two 120mm RED LED fans at the front of the case. In total, the system supports a single 120mm fan in the back, up to two 120mm fans at the top and up to three 120mm fans at the front or dual 140mm fans. Radiator-wise the system either supports a single 120mm radiator at the rear of the chassis or a 240mm/280mm radiator at the front of the enclosure. 

On the front IO, the K500L will sport two USB 3.0 ports and standard audio in/out jacks, dropping dedicated USB 2.0 ports from the front of the chassis. Out of the box, the K500L will support up to two 3.5/2.5-inch drives and a single 2.5-inch drive on a dedicated mounting system. Cooler Master says that up to six 2.5-inch drives are supported, though the company has not been clear whether or not the chassis will ship with the required mounting hardware.
