Same chassis as the P600 but with a stripped down exterior and internals for more budget friendly options. Will update when I've finished watching

I do agree, the Overall look of the P600S is the best looking, but the Price to airflow of the P500A is Pahnteks's newest Airflow specific case (I consider the P300 and P400's to be refreshes) which is why I was hyped when I saw it as CES this year.
Regardless, this is a good year for Airflow enthusiasts, between Silverstone, Phanteks, Lain Li, Thermaltake, Coolermaster and even Corsair and be quiet!, they've all been reverting back to cases that actually deliver enthusiast level airflow required to keep our 10900k/2080ti's cool which is something we've wanted for nearly two years now. (Now if only Fractal would release a Meshify C2 and S3 based off the Define 7 layouts...) (also NZXT)
Update: GN confirms both great airflow and loud fans (44dab @1300rpm) , however the real standout here is setting the fans to 50% speed (875rpm) yields 36dba, but still maintains similar levels of airflow which made it the clear winner in noise normalized tests, meeting or exceeding the P400a, while being nearly the best in GPU thermals other than cases that have direct GPU cooling like the SL600M, Zonda-O and Lian Li O11 series with fans at the bottom.
