Techvision24 Desk: Gigabyte introduces a new member to the Aorus Glass series of PC cases. Joining the Aorus Glass C200, C300, and the already existing C700 is a playground in the center of the Aorus C500 Glass tower, which supports motherboards up to the E-ATX. The new case looks stylish and accurate with its full-sided glass panel and pre-installed quartet for ARGB fans.
If you look at all four sides of the Aorus Glass PC, it is interesting to note that although they all have a glass panel filled of the same size, each style is somewhat different. Readers will probably have guessed that the new Aorus C500 Glass is the second-largest chassis in the range. Both the Aorus C700 and C500 Glass can handle motherboards up to E-ATX. Some family members are fully supportive of the ATX motherboard.
If you look closely at the new Aorus C500 Glass, another major concern with the glass case of the glass PC is its cooling. However, despite its glass appearance and gloss, the only part of the glass is the left panel. With the exception of the uninterrupted right-hand panel, all other areas have matches, ventilated or holes. Gigabyte claims that the C500 Glass features a “custom airflow design.”
If you like PCs with large glass panels and lots of RGB LED lights, the Aorus C500 Glass should not disappoint. Four PWM 120mm fans with RGB light came standard. In the pictures, you can also see the Aorus symbol on the bottom left side and it has RGB light. All of these pre-rendered components can be controlled via a dedicated connector hub (with five 5v 3pin ARGB connectors and five PWM connectors) and a Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0 software.
Before entering this case, in the form of a specification table, it is worth noting that the top panel is in front of the good I / O list – USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C x1 / USB 3.0 Type-A x2 / Audio In & Out – and the power and reset button.

Some features of the case that are not specified in our external summary or table of features above include the provision of the front panel door access. In addition, Gigabyte claims that its design features of “excellent cable handling,” options, a drag protection system used for a 4mm glass side panel, and modular drive bays.
Gigabyte has not yet provided the price dates or availability of the Aorus C500 Glass gaming console. However, the Aorus C300 Glass sells for about $ 125, while the C700 Glass costs $ 375. Therefore, we fear that the Aorus C500 Glass will be close to its big brother price.
