Product Showcase - Exterior
The looks are sweet alright, the tempered glass gives it that marvelous look and feel. The top side cover is kept in place with mounts, if you look closely at the bezel, there is spacing left in-between the edges for lots of airflow. The 5000D provides plenty of space for radiators and can support many case fans. The chassis has a modest size of 520mm x 245mm x 520mm / 20.47in x 9.65in x 20.47in . Motherboard form factors supported are E-ATX, ATX, microATX, Mini-ITX.
At the backside we see seven plus two expansion slots, dual-slot cards can be set up in Crossfire or SLI mode as well (albeit that went the way of the dodo), one card could be mounted vertically (you'd need a riser cable of course). All the way below we see the PSU section. PSU wise, you name it... it'll fit as we'll show you later on, however, likely an HDD tray needs to be removed to actually be able to mount eh PSU. The chassis at default is fitted with two 120mm AirGuide fans designed with anti-vortex vanes that enhance cooling. A RapidRoute cable management system makes it effortless to route major cables through a single channel, with at least 25mm of routing depth behind the motherboard.
At the top, the front panel connectivity can be found, including 2x USB 3.x, 1x USB 3.x Type C, power, reset, headphone/mic. and that's it. New is the yellow-colored USB port, that match with the Corsair signature theme.
You are looking at a solid Steel front panel with wide ventilation channels for plentiful airflow, and if you need more, opt for the airflow version with a meshed front bezel.
