    Lots of illumination possibilities
    Light Wings PWM fans offer ARGB lighting at the front and rear. The subtly lit ring at the back combined with the bright one at the front make for a magnificent appearance from every angle. Additional ARGB LEDs at the front and inside the case offer multiple colors and modes to individualize the look from the inside as well as from the outside. You can optionally synchronize lighting with your motherboard or ARGB controller.

    Thanks to 4 PWM fans
    With optimization for maximum airflow, the Light Wings PWM fan is the right choice for any case configuration that demands high cooling performance. Its 7 airflow-optimized fan blades not only reduce noise-generating turbulences but also ensure the fan to provide the performance that is needed, even in demanding configurations.

    All parts optimized for airflow and performance
    The extremely permeable front is perfect for everyone who strives for maximum performance with water-cooled systems in particular. The airflow-optimized top cover underlines the performance orientated claim of Pure Base 500 FX Black. The dust filters on the front panel and bottom can be easily removed for cleaning.

    Synchronization of up to 6 ARGB- and PWM-components
    The ARGB-PWM-Hub enables synchronization of up to 6 PWM fans and 6 ARGB components: Preinstalled on the backside of the motherboard tray it supports a neat interior and cable management.

    State-of-the-art technology for your system
    A USB 3.2 Gen. 2 Type C connector is provided on the front I/O port and allows usage of latest hardware. There is also a switch on the front panel to control the interior and exterior LEDs.

    Generous space for high-end hardware
    The Pure Base 500 FX Black provides generous dimensions to install high-end graphics cards and large coolers of up to 190mm in height. Radiators of up to 360mm can be installed easily at the front and the top area also provides space for more fans or a radiator of up to 240mm.

    And great cable routing possibilities
    Pure Base 500 FX Black offers various options for installing up to 4 SSDs in total. 2 can be installed for prominent viewing through the window panel. To hide any unwanted cables, the case offers excellent cable routing options.

    Offering a neat interior
    The PSU shroud perfectly covers the cables and PSU. It also contains a double HDD cage with decoupled mountings that reduce vibrations and help maximize the silence. The cage can also be repositioned to install a radiator of up to 360mm at the front. The power supply unit can be easily installed from behind, mounted on the provided PSU bracket.

    A perfect view inside your PC
    The high-quality, fully-windowed side panel offers a perfect view of the components inside your PC case. The window is made of tinted and tempered glass with black painted side bars.
