Cooler Master reveals their TD500 MESH V2, a revamp of Cooler Master's best selling case
Cooler Master's original TD 500 Mesh was a popular enclosure, with its airflow-oriented front panel design, three pre-installed fans, and affordable pricing making it a great buy for budget-oriented hardware enthusiasts. Now, Cooler Master has given their TD500 Mesh a refresh, creating a new V2 chassis that offers users several design improvements that will make the case easier to use and more versatile than before.
Like its predecessor, the TD500 Mesh V2 ships with three 120mm ARGB fans, and in addition to this the V2 also comes with an ARGB fan/RGB controller. Beyond that, the Mesh V2 also comes with a tool-free tempered glass side panel, which means that users of the case will not need to remove and re-add four screws every time they remove or re-apply their side panel.
Another neat add-on for the V2 is that the case's top panel is removable, making motherboard installation and AIO/fan installation a breeze. What's even better is that the TD500 Mesh V2 can maintain £99.99 pricing in the UK, even with these upgrades.
Cooler Master launches today an upgrade to one of their most well-loved case designs: TD500 Mesh V2. Maintaining the original version’s intricate geometric design, TD500 Mesh V2 offers both functionality and style to match the needs of the modern day PC gamer.
The TD series has been one of Cooler Master’s most successful case series since launch. Most notable for its unique three dimensional front panel paired with 120mm ARGB fans, TD cases yield an ever-changing light effect that shifts based on the angle viewed. Diamond cut etchings spans across the surface of the tempered glass side panel, enhancing the geometric theme. The TD500 Mesh V2 not only preserves this one-of-a-kind design, but also enhances the chassis’ functional features, including thicker radiator compatibility for unbeatable thermal performance. USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C connectivity has been added to empower lightning fast transfer speeds, as well as repositionable PSU shroud cover so users can freely decide whether they would like to showcase their PSU.
With the TD500 Mesh V2, Cooler Master are offering PC builders an affordable airflow-oriented case design that offers PC builders many of the modern features that they expect from more premium case designs. Cooler Master has also showcased their willingness to listen to customers by upgrading the original TD500 Mesh in ways that make the case more versatile and easier to use.
Below are the TD500 Mesh V2's key features;
Polygonal Mesh – Crafted from Cooler Master’s Fine Mesh technology, Polygonal Mesh features a three-dimensional contour and is also capable of simultaneously providing high airflow and dust filtration.
Triple ARGB Fans – Three addressable RGB fans flood the Polygonal Mesh front panel with lighting while providing considerable airflow to the system.
USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C Support – USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C port built into the I/O panel allows multi-purpose, streamlined data transmission.
Versatile Cooling Options – Support for up to seven 120mm fans and 360mm front and top radiator support ensure that performance is not compromised.
Tool-Free Crystalline TG Side Panel – A crystalline design spans the edges of the tempered glass side panel, completely toolless for quick access to the internals. An optional screw can be installed to further secure the tempered glass side panel.
PSU Shroud With Removable Cover - TD500 Mesh V2’s removable PSU cover allows users to freely showcase unique PSU designs or keep PSUs hidden for a stealthier aesthetic. When not in use, the PSU cover can be stored on the motherboard tray for easy safekeeping.
Removable Top Panel – The top panel is entirely removable for improved access to the components during assembly. Ease of use also facilitates the mounting of cooling solutions such as fans and radiators.
With a UK MSRP of £99.99, Cooler Master's TD500 Mesh V2 is an affordable case that appears to offer users a lot of features that we wouldn't expect from a case with sub-£100 pricing. Let's hope that retailers stick to this pricing, and the this is a sign of great things to come from Cooler Master.
