Computer cases exist in all sizes and shapes and accomodate anything from cute tiny office computers to huge high-end gaming computers with multiple graphics cards and custom loop watercoolers, and everything in between. Today we will take a look at the Aerocool Strike-X Xtreme Mid Tower chassis. The case is a regular mid tower and some mid towers are almost as big as a full tower chassis or almost as small as a mini tower so there is a difference in size between the varieties of mid towers.
We all need a computer case, some people prefer to have a test bench so they can easily change hardware or do extreme overclocking but they do need something to mount the motherboard on and install everything in or on. My preference goes to 'real cases' like this one, an actual enclosed case. I am not saying that I like all cases; it is just that I prefer this type of chassis to a test bench for daily computing. For benching sessions or extreme overclocking I do recommend a test bench. But I think most of you readers just like hardware and computers but do not go to the extremes with overclocking like liquid nitrogen and such, if so please let us know in the comment section!
I want to thank Aerocool for providing us the review sample of the Strike-X Xtreme Black Edition Chassis. Here is a snippet from what Aerocool has to say about themselves on their website:
"IN THE BEGINNING
AeroCool Advanced Technologies (AAT) was founded in 2001. At the earlier stage of operation we were committed to share our technical expertise and innovative design in providing total-solution for thermal management in industrial and personal computers.
With our solid and innovative design experience in thermal engineering, AAT was the first company to adapt U-shape heat pipe and heat column (1" diameter heat pipe) technologies to CPU cooler design for desktop computer. These new applications became a trend and leading the market in heat pipe application in desktop computer industry. Our unique and innovative design also made "AEROCOOL" as one of the favorite brand name in over-clocking and PC DIY (Do-It-Yourself) market.
With this successful experience in thermal products, AAT has expanded its product lines to computer peripherals such as computer case, fan, mutli-function control panel and power supply etc. With our creative thinking and innovative design, we had launched some successful PC cases and multi-function control panels (for example, we were the first company to introduce "Double-Bay" (2 standard 5-1/4" bay) front panel controller).
Today Aerocool is one of the market leaders in the "Gaming Market". Our strong brand and product image are well received by gamers and enthusiasts world-wide.
