Aerocool Strike-X Air Review
We've looked at quite a few Aerocool items here at OC3D and can say that we have noticed something of a theme developing with regards to their styling. Lets just say that they're not exactly subtle. Now that's not a criticism, it's merely a statement of fact, and I would hazard a guess, a direct result of a marketing strategy. Let me explain. With the most avid users and therefor buyers of all things PC and gaming being men between 18-25 it stands to reason that along with those that prefer sleek black understated cases, a good proportion of this demographic will like the aggressive bold styling that is the hall mark of Aerocool products, and in particular the "Strike" range. Oh yes, this case comes as part of range, and I don't mean just the other cases in the Strike range, you can also get PSUs, Mice, fan controllers and before long even speakers.
So lets look a bit more closely at the Strike-X Air. Having established it's an open frame design it's probably best you understand just how big this case is. It's not tall as most cases are being only 340mm in height, but what it lacks in height it makes up for in other areas. With a width accross the front of 612mm and a depth of 535mm you'd best be sure you've got room on your desk for it. For the rest of the vital statistics lets turn our attention to the technical specification.
