If I was you, I would have gotten an Enlight 7237 w/300W, but thats an opinion. It's a fine case, but I think its ugly as not as customizable as the Enlight.

I prefer Enlight 723x to Inwin S500,
Inwin S500 comes with just 235W PS default,
Enlight 723x has 4 x 5.25" slots vs Inwin S500 3 slots.
Price is similar to Enlight 723x with 250W PS.

i love my s508, just really high quality stuff. and mine came with an amd approved 250 watt psu and a extra fan.

the s508 is the s500 with a different faceplate

have you considered Yeong-Yang &quot;Lunar?&quot; I bought it after using Enlight 7237, Addtronics 6890, Inwin S500, and a whole bunch of other cases.

The &quot;Lunar&quot; is my favorite so far because it has room for 2 120mm fans unmodded (I've said this many times already, I know). With a 120mm panaflo, you get a better airflow to noise ratio (because of lower rpm) than ANY 80 mm fan.

Personally I would have to say the Inwin is vastly superior in construction to that of the Enlight. The edges are better inside, the drive rails are more secre, and the plastic parts are sturdier, and now with the different bezel options you have alot more choices.

when the s500 first came out you were kind of limited because it was only available with a 235w supply but now they have them with varying suplies and even one model was designed for the p4.

The only things that I am not really fond of are the lack of mounting screw hole options on the one drive bay that allows for screws, coudn't mount a bay cooler because of this, and the built in mobo stands but those have actually turned out tobe helpful as well as hurtful.

Overall though any version of the S500 is a great case, lots of room, top notch construction, and many bezel options for appearance.
