Today we are going to look at the Aerocool Strike-X Air which is a very innovative chassis, designed to appeal to those enthusiasts who spend a lot of time inside their PC and change hardware frequently.  It uses an open design, similar to a test bench, which features a large mesh cover to hide the components .

Aerocool may not be one of the most well-known PC case manufacturers but they have been around for over ten years now.  They are best known for their cooling products, particularly their touch-screen fan controllers.  They have a number of other products in their range, though, including cases, CPU coolers and power supplies.

    Buying this too. I have a system I use for work, but id like a rig I can just rip bits out of regularly. Good price too IMO.

    Henry when you say its not a wonderful build. do you mean you think it might fall apart, or is it just a bit of ‘flex’ on the metals?

    I like the look of this, but dont want it falling apart on me in a few months.

    @Ivan

    I would assume by the score, its just a minor thing, otherwise I can’t see it scoring 8

    @ Ivan,

    You’re right, there’s a bit of flex here an there in the materials and it generally doesn’t feel as solid as it could be. I highly doubt that it will fall apart or anything, though!

    Does anyone have any ideas how to fit a corsair Hydro H80i in the case (Aerocool Strike-X Air)? Appreciate any pointers. Is there a bracket I can get? Alternatively which liquid cooler would be suitable in this case for an AMD FX 9370 with the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z? Thanks.
