Aerocool Xpredator II Gaming Tower Chassis Review

Conclusion

Aerocool Xpredator II is spacious, well designed chassis. We are able to install nearly every motherboard from ITX to E-ATX format. There is also no problem to install water cooling and two radiators. It also provides great airflow and Xpredator II itself has installed five 140mm fans. Additional advantage is SATA 2.5/3.5″ drive bay on the top panel which let you connect drives without opening the case. It’s one of the things about what you never think of till it’s needed and then you can find it really handy.

There are also things that could be better. Some of the cables could have better finish as it’s product designed for the most demanding users. Also dust filter could be larger – it’s covering only PSU. Actually dust filters could be installed also in other places. Great airflow can bring additional dust from the outside of the case and we all wish our hardware to look and perform like new as long as it’s possible.

I see no problems with availability of Xpredator II in Europe. However for now can be limited availability on other continents. Both versions so black and white are available in many online stores. The only problem for potential users can be price. In most stores I see price between 120 and 140 €. Full tower gaming chassis often cost so much but I’m not sure if it’s not too much for Xpredator II which can have hard time to convince some users.

 

Pros:

  • A lot of space to install everything, including EATX motherboards
  • Designed for watercooling
  • Interesting air-vents
  • 5 fans included
  • SATA 2.5/3.5″ drive bay on the top panel

Cons:

  • Could have more/larger dust filters ( especially on the bottom, next to PSU )
  • Expensive ( still comparable to other large, gaming tower cases )

 

Final words:

If you are looking for a large PC case where you can install plenty of water cooling components like double radiators and E-ATX/XL-ATX motherboard then Aerocool Xpredator II is really interesting option worth considering. There are many advantages like drive bay which you can access without need of opening the case but there are also things that could be improved. However we understand that products like Aerocool Xpredator II are designed for users who know what they want so we leave choice to them.

We can recommend Aerocool Xpredator II as a well designed PC case but decision would be easier if price was lower.
