Asus has announced the TUF Gaming GT502 chassis features a dual-chamber design with panoramic tempered glass and space for up to 13 fans.
Available in two versions, TUF Gaming GT502 and TUF Gaming GT502 Plus, the former arrives barebones with no fans or controller, while the latter adds said controller plus four 120mm ARGB fans. Like the well-known Lian Li O11 Dynamic, the chassis features two tempered glass panels allowing for a wider viewing angle from the front and side, making custom cooling loops look even more impressive.
The steel chassis measures 285mm x 450mm x 446mm and weighs 12kg, and it can house up to 13 fans allowing it to push enough air to cool the most demanding hardware configurations. Talking about cooling, if you are into the liquid type, you can install up to 360mm radiators on the side, 120mm on the rear, and 360mm up top. The bottom also seems to support 360mm radiators, but may cause some compatibility issues with tall boards.
Moving to more down-to-earth cooling systems, there’s clearance for 163mm-high CPU tower coolers alongside 400mm-long graphics cards, with a 200mm maximum-length PSU having its own compartment behind the motherboard tray. The back compartment offers 90mm of space for cable management, perfect if you want to toss all the cables there and call it a day.
Thanks to its size, TUF Gaming GT502 supports ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX boards, offering eight expansion slot openings. Four 3.5in/2.5in drive bays are handy for that extra storage, assuming you have already used all your M.2 slots. The included vertical mounting bracket enables a different GPU look, especially when liquid cooled. I/O-wise, Asus has built-in two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack.
Finally, Asus points out this chassis has exceptional customisation options with over 25 detachable parts, meaning any section can be modified.
While the brand didn’t specify pricing and availability, looking at the previously mentioned Lian Li O11 Dynamic, we can assume pricing will be around the £150 mark.
