CTE Form Factor

Designed by Thermaltake

The focus for CTE (Centralized Thermal Efficiency) was to provide a high level of thermal performance by altering our approach to traditional case design. The result was a design that utilizes a 90-degree rotated motherboard tray to provide not only more airflow pathways but also more efficient airflow pathways.

With the new fan trays being able to accept up to three 140mm or 120mm fans as well as up to a 420mm AIO Radiator the CTE chassis provides lots of options whether you choose Air, AIO, or DIY Liquid Cooling for your build. Since the motherboard tray has been rotated, direct intake airflow from each of the motherboard trays can more efficiently be directed toward components like the CPU and GPU and then exhausted with the assistance of natural convection.

The design utilizes a 90-degree rotation of the motherboard providing more efficient airflow pathways.

Optimized Intake

The rotation of the motherboard tray not only allows the CTE design to bring the CPU and GPU closer to the intake sources but goes one step further in providing each their own dedicated intake. The CTE T500 TG ARGB supports up to three 140mm/120mm fans or up to420mm radiators on the front and an additional three 140mm/120mm fans or up to a 360mm radiator in the rear.

Central Thermal Efficiency

Now that primary heat sources have been centralized in the chassis, intake and exhaust can both benefit from shortened and optimized air pathways located at the front, top, rear and bottom.

Create and Display

Designed to meet the needs of All-in-One, custom liquid cooling as well as air cooling solutions, the CTE T500 features a 4mm Tempered Glass as well as side panels engineered for ventilation. Providing both great airflow and great views to your build inside.

Maximum Radiator Support

To keep in line with the previous CTE chassis, the T500 focuses on the front and rear mounting locations that can support up to a 420mm radiator up front and up to a 360mm radiator in the rear as well as mounting 120mm radiators at the top and bottom. Perfect for builds that want to take advantage of more than one radiator while still maintaining great airflow.

Options to Fit Your Dream Build

With features like enough space to accommodate up to 11 fans, a rotating PCI-E tray and riser bracket, removable pump and reservoir bracket, and two removable fan brackets the T500 has what it takes to fit everything you want for your dream build. Fans can be mounted on the front and rear of the chassis via a removable fan brackets, on the bottom of the chassis either on top of the HDD cover or on the direct bottom of the case, the top of the chassis both next to the rear I/O as well as the PCI-E section, and finally there is an additional fan mount behind the motherboard.

Three Pre-Installed 140mm CT140 ARGB Fans

Our new CT series ARGB fans offer great performance and beautiful LED effects and we have included 3 of the 140mm series to give you a start. With standard 4-Pin PWM and 5V ARGB connectivity set up is simple and benefits from a variety of ways to control your fan speeds and lighting effects.
