Aerocool PGS VS-9 Mid Tower Gaming Case Review - Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts

The Antec 300 now has a very formidable competitor for high-performance, low cost case solutions.  Between top, side, and bottom vents, up to four front-mounted fan, and a vast array of possible fan configurations, the VS-9 has a ton to offer for its price.  It also has a very solid integrated cable management system, despite not having any pre-cut holes to route cables behind the tray.

Attention to detail is also very clear in the VS-9, rubberized thumb screws, folding handles to remove the side panels, and a black, powdercoated interior are all features normally reserved for higher-end cases, and all have come together in a case that costs only about $50.  Aerocool's tool-less design is also the best I've yet to use, and is also easily the most solid and stable I've used as well.

I think that this case could become the new king of budget performance cases as more people buy, use, and discover it.  The single and only complaint I would have is that it doesn't come with an intake fan, but at the price it's listed with the features it packs, an intake fan shouldn't necessarily be automatically included.

Pros:

  • All black interior
  • Huge airflow options
  • Hole in motherboard tray
  • Integrated cable management
  • Price
  • Overall attention to "the little things"

Cons:

  • No included intake fan
  • No precut cable management holes (remedied by built-in options)

 

We were thoroughly impressed with our experiences with the VS-9, and if you are looking for a budget gaming case, look no further.  The Aerocool VS-9 leaves very little to be desired!

We would like to thank Aerocool for providing us with this sample, and we award their VS-9 case with our Tech Kings Crown!
