Aerocool Strike-X Advance
10 July 2012
Summary: Aerocool has chosen a very specific path by offering the Strike-X Advance chassis at a very competitive price point, with four LED equipped fans and fairly elaborate looks and red interior. To do so, you will have to turn a blind eye in terms of quality and cannot expect to see any true innovation within the case.
The Aerocool Strike-X Advance is clearly to be used as a basis of a budget gaming rig.
Pros: Cool looks, Four fans included, All fans equipped with Molex and 3-pin connectors, All fans with red LEDs, Up to 3.5 or 2.5" drives may be installed, Single 2.5" SSD slot on floor, Tool-less locks for 5.25 inch bays work well, Dust filters on the drive bay covers, 5.25" to 3.5" front included, Dust filter on floor of chassis, Anti-Vibration foam on PSU bay, Cool red interior
Cons: Quality of frame a bit weak, Rear side has two weak spots, Very basic I/O - only one USB 2.0 and one 3.0, 295 mm long graphics cards will only fit under ideal circumstances, No dust filter on the side panel, Dust filter on floor cannot be removed, Not enough HDD screws, but too many other ones., External USB 3.0 variant should be avoided, Very basic cable management possibilities
