Aerocool are back with their love it or hate it Strike-X chassis series, this time tackling the ever popular cube chassis form factor with the release of their Strike-X Cube Micro ATX PC case. The new chassis keeps much of the styling of the original Strike-X chassis, but squashes it down into a smaller form factor that makes it more suitable for popping next to your big screen TV or carrying it to LAN gaming events; the chassis measures in at just 435 x 280 x 412mm.
The Strike-X Cube supports Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboard, ATX power supplies, 187mm CPU coolers, dual 240 to 280mm radiators, 320mm long graphics cards and even 345mm cards if you remove the front cooling fan! There is room for six fans on the chassis interior, with a 200mm and a 140mm pre-installed. Storage options are well catered for, with room for three 3.5″ or 2.5″ drives, and there is room for an additional two 2.5″ drives under the 5.25″ bay.
If that’s not enough room for you, the optical and HDD bays can be complete removed to make way for modding, extra cable space or what ever takes your creative fancy. The chassis is packed full of extra features such as cable routing holes with rubber grommets, a magnetic and removable PSU dust filter, shock proof rubber pads for hard drives and the PSU, two USB 3.0 ports, HD audio jacks, an integrated fan controller and reinforced side bar handles; making the chassis carry friendly.
The only downside to this chassis is the design, I can’t say I’m a fan of the aesthetics at all, but that really doesn’t matter as I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who love the design and while I may not like the looks, I have to admit that I’m impressed by the number of features packed into this chassis.
The Aerocool Strike-X Cube chassis will be available to order from most major retailers this week with an MSRP $120,90 (US Ex/ Taxes).
Thank you Aerocool for providing us with this information.
