Aerocool PGS VS-9 Mid Tower Gaming Case Review


Aerocool has been a leading developer of high-performance computer components at an affordable price.  Their VS-9 case is part of their Performance Gaming System Value series which fits perfectly into this philosophy, as the products in their value gaming series are specifically designed to have a very high performance-to-cost ratio.  Features that normally come with an added cost are included in abundance in the VS-9, and our initial impressions are very good!
