Here, you can see three cable cut-outs to the right of the motherboard, all fitted with rubber grommets. The ones near the PSU shroud don’t have grommets, nor do the ones above the MoBo.


At the front, you can see a place (75 mm clearance) for three 120 mm fans (or two 140 mm ones), or you can install an LCS there, provided that it’s nothing larger than a 360 mm rad (with a 45 mm thickness limit). On the picture, it's a bit less because the HDD tray has been moved slightly to the front.


At the back, there is a 120 mm fan installed, but unfortunately, it’s a 3-pin one with a permanently connected Molex adapter. You can mount a 120 mm AIO in there instead.


You can install up to two 2.5” drives at the back, below the backplate cut-out in the motherboard tray. There are also two 3.5” trays (you can use 2.5” ones instead) at the bottom, toward the front of the case. You can’t remove them completely, only move them to the front. Overall, you have four drive mounts in the Deepcool CL500. You can also see the PSU housing here.


  There's about 19 cm of clearance in the default state, so the 160 mm PSU should fit it in. You can move the HDD cage to the forward of the chassis and thanks to it you can have more space for bigger power supplies. Let’s head to the build part.
