Love the case
1 week ago
Summary: Love the case, size is perfect. It is very cool inside and it has a good airflow. Take care with the dust that builds up over time on the side and top vents and it will run perfect. R9 270x never went up than 60ºC on full load. FX 6300 never went higher than 52ºC on full throttle (4.1ghz) Buy a fan controller and a small 120mm fan for the back (hot air exhaust) it will be fine as long as is higher than 1300 rpm.
Summary: Uses cheap materials, rattles all over, the quality is terrible. The hard drive cage is so made that when the drive spins it vibrates the whole thing, turning it into a big amplifier. I had to suspend the drive so that it didn't sound like a lawn mower. Would not recommend for the price they're asking for.
Summary: I didn't expect the base to be as easy to open, fill and cable manage as it was. 5 stars because it went beyond my expectations. The two fans that come as standard are good for a standard desktop PC but they're easy to remove, clean and replace should you feel the need to do so.
Summary: Really good well made case for micro ATX form factors. I do think the front fan is pretty much useless though. its huge but also is so slow that it pushes very little air. other than that, solid case.
Summary: Just finished rebuilding my old quad core pc with this new case. It's solid, beautiful to look at and touch, and very quiet (especially once you've gone into the bios and enabled smart fan and reduced the system fan voltage which controls fan speed if supported). Installing the motherboard was straight forward, everything else was easy, and managing the PSU cables is great, probably the neatest build I've done so far.
Summary: The fit and finish of this case is excellent - they've taken their time and thought about the design. The roof cavity (using the supplied mesh panel) can support a 30mm thick 240mm radiator with a couple of fans, without sacrificing your DVD drive. Without a DVD drive, the removable external drive cages mean you can drop in a full thickness 240 or possibly 280mm radiator in there.
Summary: I was first sceptical about the case since I have no experience with Aerocool but it turned out great! The installation of the parts was easy with the exception HDDs. While HDDs themselves were easy to screw in, the PSU can be a bit on the way. Be aware though, depending on the size of your CPU fan and mobo, you might not be able to install more than 3 memory units. Using optical and floppy drives might be on the way of GPU as well but I removed them.
