The King Of Airflow – Cooler Master MasterCase H500M RGB Build


I have really loved having my main PC in the Cooler Master Cosmos C700P for the last little while but it is really really big and when I have to move it or do anything with it, I have to mentally prepare myself because I know its going to hurt me both physically and emotionally.

In this video I’m going to move my own personal daily driver editing workstation. The computer that I edit all these videos on and basically use as for everything into the brand new Cooler Master H500M.

You might remember me doing the initial build of this machine a while ago on the channel when I switched from X99 to X399. You can check that out up in the right hand corner right now if you want to check that out.

Okay lets kick it off by talking about your favourite part, the parts. The motherboard were reusing for this build is the ASRock X399 Professional Gaming. This board supports 2nd Gen Threadripper as well and has been a very very good board over the entire time Ive used it. It overclocks well, has great memory compatibility and has 10Gigabit Ethernet onboard. In my eyes this is the perfect Threadripper workstation motherboard. The price though, thats another story.

The GPUs were using, thats right there are 2 of them are the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Windforce 8G OCs in SLI. Right now the benefits for editing with RTX cards just arent there, they might be with the release of Premiere Pro CC 2019 next week but for now these Pascal cards are perfect. Funny story, Hardware Canucks did a video about RTX and video editing, I was literally uploading our video when they put theirs out, thats why we missed an upload last week. Their video explained it well and said everything I was going to say anyways. Check their video in the top right hand corner right now.

The CPU were using for this build is the mighty AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. I love this CPU. Legitimately I cannot look at any CPUs the same again after using Threadripper. This chip does everything that I want it to do and it does it exceptionally well.

To cool the 1950x were using the Noctua NHU14 TR4 SP3 tower cooler. When we initially built this machine I was using the Cooler Master ML240L but after I did the review of the NHU14 TR4, I left it on the board because the performance is amazing.

The RAM I was using was 128GB of Corsair LPX at 3000MHz I pulled 4 sticks out for other machines. Right now its rocking just 64GB. 64GB is perfect for this system.

Last but not least is the case. Its the brand Cooler Master MasterCase H500M. This case right now is the king of airflow and for a system like this airflow is the most important thing.

I think I’ve talked enough lets build it.

This isn’t a review these are just my observations. The case is so well thought out. Compared to the H500P which was awesome it its own right, this almost shouldn’t even bear the H500 designation because its just not the same. The differences are night and day.

The rear cable management panels are a stroke of genius. The case has so much room for everything. Well within reason. I jammed 2 WD reds in the basement as well as 2 525GB SSDs on the back and I you cannot see a single cable.

Thermally almost everything inside the system is running between 5 to 10 degrees cooler that before and its is basically silent while doing it. Those 2 200mm fans should be in every case from every manufacturer ever.

Overall I’m happy with how its running, how it looks and just everything. I was reluctant to swap it out because of how much of a mammoth task it felt like but building in it was easy.

Special thanks to Cooler Master, AMD and ASRock for supplying the most important parts of the build and for always supporting our dream of building beautiful computers for you to guys enjoy.
