Aerocool Bx-500 Mid Tower Case Review

The BX-500 is yet another well thought out, well planned, and well executed piece of hardware by Aerocool.  They've added features, that, when I looked at them, thought, "how come nobody has done this before?"  Their engineering team has shown, once again, that they're meticulous in their design, and it shows through brilliantly.

 

 

Description

The BX-500 is what every gamer dreams for. It is a sensational case which eludes "class" and "performance".

The chassis is solidly constructed with 0.8mm SECC Japanese steel. The front panel is made by top quality aluminum and metal mesh. It features "breakthrough" features which are second to none.

What makes this case such a stand out from it's competitors is its perfromance, ease of use and expandability. The BX-500 supports E-ATX platforms allowing for more compatibility with high-end VGA cards. Its airflow is "unrivaled". It maximizes airflow with 10 fans including front intake 120mm LED fan (included), back exhaust 120mm LED fan (included), dual top exhaust 140mm LED fans (included), and bottom and side fans (optional to install up to 4 x 120mm / 140mm fans). There is also an additional optional 80mm fan port on the side panel to increase CPU area air flow.

The chassis is completely "screw-less" which makes installation a breeze. Smart cable clips are also pre-installed inside the chassis to eliminate cable mess and improve the systems air flow. Both power supply and hard drive are well protected from shock with anti-vibration screws.

What else can you ask for from this case? Nothing! It is an ultimate gaming case which satisfied gamers and enthusiasts around the world.
