The build of Phanteks has put great thought into the making of both external and internal layout. The looks are familiar with the series iconic P400A case, the ATX chassis that brings the cooling factor to the small builds. The upgraded Eclipse P500A is an improved variant to some tricks that help it stand out from the other variants.

It has a high-airflow all-metal grille at the front, which is the reason it is rated as the best airflow case in mid-tower ATX, that digital DRGB lighting on three 140mm fans mounted to provide excellent distribution of air to the case. It has a side-tempered glass panel with a hinge to make building easy for most builders to appreciate the feature of making hinge design in cases.

Besides that, the last and new generation of cases shares a common internal structure as spacious and open to supports dual GPUs in vertical alignment with the mounting, which lease the length up to 420mm at Front and 280mm on top of the case for radiators.

It is easily accessible when it comes to accessibility with cooling systems and compatibility functions. Phanteks P500A chassis push the builders to fit all of the components conveniently without screwing the components that for sure is necessary for fat GPUs and radiators to cool down under this portable ATX case.

The front does not have an intake filter that is the design-centric missing option, but there is a dedicated air filter under the case beneath the PSU cabin to make the PSU fan take the clean air.
