cte case

CTE - Centralised Thermal EfficiencyThe CTE T500 Air is a specially designed E-ATX full tower chassis from the new CTE form factor series that emphasises more airflow and is designed to provide high levels of thermal performance to critical components. It comes with three pre-installed 140mm CT140 fans and can support up to a 420mm AIO radiator at the front, and up to two 360mm AIO radiators at the front and the rear. There are plenty of spaces to install cooling components including the front and rear fan bracket, top and right fan vent, bottom fan vent, and cover fan vent, and up to eleven 140mm/120mm fans can be installed in the chassis. Other nice details include removable filters, a pump and reservoir bracket, and Velcro straps for easy cable management. The CTE T500 is an ideal choice whether you are looking for a custom liquid cooling setup or a dual AIO configuration system!

Experience the Perfect Blend of Design and Performance

CTE Form Factor

CTE Form FactorThe CTE Form Factor Designed by Thermaltake, stands for Centralised Thermal Efficiency, and is focused around providing high level thermal performance to critical components. This approach has allowed the CTE to provide better and more efficient airflow intake through the placement of main components and cooling hardware, as well as optimised heat extraction from the system.

Efficient Airflow

90° Motherboard RotationThis design utilises a 90-degree rotation of the motherboard providing more efficient airflow pathways.

Create and Display Your Dream Build

4mm tempered glass window

Showcase Your SystemDesigned to meet the needs of both all-in-one and custom liquid cooling solutions, the CTE T500 Air's versatile interior features one 4mm tempered glass panel on the left side, allowing users to view and admire all components in their full glory.

All Your Dream Cooling Components Can Fit!

Customisable CoolingThe CTE T500 Full Tower Chassis has enormous fan and cooler installation capacity: up to eleven 140mm/120mm fans and 360mm AIO coolers at various positions (a 420mm AIO cooler at the front). Moreover, equipped fan brackets at the front and rear side, and the installation spots at the top, right and cover ensure easy installation of all your desired cooling components.

Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.
