  • Cooler Master HAF 500 Homecoming Classic Review



    Over the years we have seen a lot of Cooler Master cases but the High Airflow or HAF series has always stood out.  The HAF cases have always provided enthusiasts with a next level option focused on providing maximum airflow for the most demanding builds.

    Today we will be looking at the return of the HAF brand through the all new Cooler Master HAF 500 Homecoming Classic featuring dual 200mm fans and AGRB. A new HAF case is long overdue. Let’s see if the HAF 500 lives up to the legacy!

    The HAF 500 Homecoming Classic is available in both a white finish and the more traditional all back design you see here.  The HAF 500 design looks very similar to the Mastercase H500 with ARGB we reviewed late last year making the HAF version a natural evolution to the line.
