Aerocool Strike-X One Advance Review

The Aerocool Strike-X One Advance ships in a plain box, protected by layers of Styrofoam.

We can immediately see the Strike-X One Advance has an aggressive design, in line with the rest of the Strike-X family.

There are four removable drive plates and a large X covers a mesh panel.

Up top and on the side we can see large mesh cut-outs to facilitate the installation of additional fans.

The Strike-X One Advance’s front I/O panel houses a Reset button, two USB 3.0 ports, audio and mic jacks and a Power button.

The red Strike-X emblem stands out with its red outlines. Moving down gives us a better look at the large X cut-out in the front panel.

At the very bottom of the case we can see the Aerocool brand name.

Turning the case around gives us a better view of the large mesh cut-outs in the side panel. Users can install either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans to further improve the airflow to both the CPU and GPU.

Around the back we catch a glimpse of one of the two pre-installed fans.

Aerocool have chosen to use the same method of securing expansion cards that we recently saw on the Strike-X Xtreme Black Edition. The plastic cover swings open to allow for the installation of expansion cards from outside the case.

The right-hand side of the case reveals a mesh cut-out behind the CPU cut-out. Although this is unlikely to improve airflow within the case, it does show Aerocool’s desire to maintain a symmetric design.

Flipping the case on its side shows the removable dust filter underneath the power supply.

The four plastic feet provide plenty of clearance, a plus for users who place their systems on a carpet floor.
