A New Dual Chamber Case Challenger: ASUS TUF Gaming GT502

ASUS announces the TUF Gaming GT502 computer case, featuring a dual chamber design, panoramic tempered glass and space for up to 13 fans. Today’s high-performance CPUs and graphics cards offer unprecedented processing power for gamers, creators, and users of all kinds, and it is exceptional cooling that unlocks that potential. The TUF Gaming GT502, with its dual-chamber thermal design, gives builders an eye-catching and versatile enclosure that is primed and ready for high-end components.

TUF Gaming GT502 Dual-chamber cooling that does more

The TUF Gaming GT502 chassis gives users a wide array of options for planning the cooling system of their next high-powered build. There are two variants: the TUF Gaming GT502 Plus, which ships with four pre-installed ARGB fans and an ARGB hub, and the TUF Gaming GT502, which invites users to design and install their own cooling system.

Both variants feature a dual-chamber design. The roomy rear chamber offers a 90 mm space for cable management — but that’s just the start. It also houses the power supply, and it includes a versatile bracket to mount up to three storage drives or even a 360 mm radiator. And it’s all isolated from the primary heat-producing components in the main chamber.

Speaking of the main chamber, it’s built end-to-end for efficient cooling. Broad vents draw cooling air in from the bottom panel. The TUF Gaming GT502 PLUS uses four pre-installed 120 mm ARGB fans to exhaust heat through the rear and top of the case, and there’s plenty of room to add more. In total, the GT502 supports a maximum of 13 fans, letting users direct cooling air right where they need it.

But that’s not the only way that users might cool their high-end rig. The top vent in the main chamber supports radiators up to 360 mm for AIO coolers or custom loops. Even if users are dialing in a beastly overclock, the GT502 will give them the cooling options their hardware needs.

Build with confidence

ASUS designed the TUF Gaming GT502 to give users an easy building experience, inside and out. Support for ATX PSUs and up to ATX motherboards offers a wide array of options for select parts. The tool-free side panels allow users to roll up their sleeves and start building without any hassle.

Cable management is easy, too. The versatile fan bracket in the rear chamber has built-in cable clips and outlets, so whether it is being used for storage, fans, or for a liquid cooling radiator, one can conveniently route all the necessary cables.

The spacious interior of the GT502 houses graphics cards up to 400 mm long. An included vertical mounting bracket lets users choose whether they would prefer to orient a graphics card horizontally or vertically — all that’s needed is a riser cable to show off a card’s shroud and fans in a vertical orientation.

Today’s high-performance graphics cards often use a thick heatsink to dissipate heat. The GT502 helps keep a card perfectly level over time with an included graphics card holder. Its three-section adjustment structure supports a wide range of graphics cards, no matter how they are installed. It will shoulder horizontal graphics cards in a range of 46 to 139 mm, and vertical graphics cards in a range of 15 to 42 mm.

The GT502 offers exceptional versatility right out of the box, but many builders will want to apply their own mods to personalize it even further. With over 25 detachable parts, this case gives modders exceptional customization options. If there is a section of the GT502 that users would like to customize with their own design, they will be able to quickly remove it.

Out in the open

The TUF Gaming Alliance gives users a broad selection of components rigorously tested for compatibility, stability, and durability — and they all look good together, thanks to a cohesive aesthetic. The TUF Gaming GT502’s wide transparent windows on the left and front panels give a commanding view of a carefully coordinated build.

Whether users love to go all-in on RGB lighting or just prefer a set of understated accents, the GT502 gives them the options that they are looking for. The illuminated TUF Gaming logo on the front panel supports Aura Sync, so it is easy to coordinate with other gear. Owners of the TUF Gaming GT502 Plus can use the included 6-port ARGB hub, protected from accidental short circuits with its plastic housing, to set up a dazzling array of lights. Synchronize it all through a compatible motherboard with Aura Sync, or toggle between preset lighting effects with a button on the front panel.

Convenient connectivity and maintenance options

The TUF Gaming GT502 case offers conveniences that go far beyond the building process. It is designed for comfortable everyday use as well. A rich selection of ports on the front panel makes it easy to connect a headset and other peripherals. The USB Type-C® port on the front is wired for speed: install a motherboard with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C header to put exceptional transfer speeds within arm’s reach.

The GT502 is also easy to move around. It includes two woven-cotton handles tested to securely support up to 30 kg or 66 pounds. Whether a user is placing a freshly-built PC on their desk, moving it to a new location in their home, or taking it along to a LAN party, they can carry their build with confidence. The handles are strong enough for just about any selection of parts one might install—though if a user has assembled a large custom liquid cooling loop, it might be prudent to check the weight of the completed rig on a scale.

Keeping the internals of the GT502 spotless is quick and painless. Filters for the top, bottom, and right-hand vents help keep clogging dust away from components, and they are easy to remove and clean whenever necessary.

Versatility, performance and style, all in one package

The TUF Gaming GT502 gives users the options that they are looking for in their next high-performance PC. With its dual-chamber design, it lets one design an exceptional cooling system. Full-sized tempered glass panels on the front and left side put carefully selected components in full view. And with hassle-free cable management options, a vertical mounting bracket for graphics cards, an included 6-port ARGB controller in the GT502 Plus, and easy modding options, users can make the most of the panorama those windows provide.

With its clean look, powerful cooling and extensive customization options, the TUF Gaming GT502 is the ideal case for one’s next high-performance build.
