November 1st, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. by Maximilian Hohm – Asus says it has launched a dual-chamber ATX case with the TUF Gaming GT502. The special feature is the spatial separation of the power supply and drives and the rest of the hardware as well as plenty of space for radiators and cable management. Read more about the new housing from the TUF series below.
Asus is known to most users for products like motherboards and graphics cards with the ROG branding, which stand for the maximum possible performance. The manufacturer also has the The Ultimate Force series (TUF), which is said to be characterized by high performance and, above all, stability. Under this sub-brand, the manufacturer has now introduced the TUF Gaming GT502, which it says is a two-chamber PC case. The name may be misleading, because there is no space for a second PC in the case, but it clearly exceeds the space available in many conventional cases.

In the main chamber, in which most of the hardware is located, Asus has used a hardened glass pane, which allows a deep look into the system, as is now standard practice. In addition to graphics cards up to 400 millimeters long, two 360 mm radiators can be installed in it, and another one in the rear chamber. With an included mounting bracket, the user can decide whether the graphics card should be mounted vertically or horizontally, but a riser cable must be purchased separately.

It comes with an adjustable graphics card holder that can support the weight of current pixel accelerators. A maximum of 13 fans can be mounted in total, but none are supplied. On the front you’ll find one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, headphone and microphone jacks, and an ARGB button to adjust the glowing TUF logo. With two straps mounted on the top, the case should be easy to transport, which is not recommended for custom water cooling.
To keep the inside of the tower clean, dust filters are mounted on the top, bottom and right side, which should be easy to remove. The second chamber on the back of the ATX case is 9 centimeters wide and also houses the power supply. Three storage drives can be mounted in it and all conceivable cables can be routed. Asus emphasizes the spatial separation from the rest of the computer, which should mean that the temperatures are lower here. The TUF Gaming GT502 is available now and is already listed in the PCGH price comparison. There it currently costs at least 235 euros, still well above the RRP of 189.90 euros.
