Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Since the outside looks so much like the Xpredator X1 / Thor, I say we look past the aesthetics and dive right into what the charts have to offer. They start with the fact that this full-tower chassis is 527mm tall, is 223mm wide, and is 533mm from front to back, and weighs in at 8.66Kg or 20.7" tall, 8.7" wide, and 20.9" in total depth, and weighing in at a little over 19 pounds. It then progresses to the fact that the frame is made of steel and uses 0.6mm and 0.7mm thick steel. Inside the chassis you have the choice of housing an ITX, Micro-ATX or ATX motherboard behind the drive bays. In which you will have access to three 5.25" bays through the front of the chassis, and one of them has a 3.5" adapter tray in it.
You also are given accommodations for up to eight storage devices in slide-out trays - you can also install 2.5" drives in these trays with the use of screws. Speaking of 2.5" drives, Aerocool has included a dock for one just behind the front I/O panel. The chassis also includes room for up to eight slots worth of expansion cards, as long as they are 310mm or shorter. Speaking of limitations, I am quite surprised to see that this chassis allows for 186mm tall CPU coolers inside of the not quite 9" wide frame.
Under the image of the red bladed, red LED, 200mm fan image, you will find all of the specs for the intake fan that sits in the front of this chassis. This fan will run at a speed of 700 RPM while delivering 53.4 CFM of airflow. With a rating of 0.49 mmH2O of static pressure, along with the lower CFM rating, the fan will be quiet, but is it enough to get much air past the drive bays? Under the image of the black bladed, 120mm exhaust fan that is placed in the rear of the chassis you are getting more RPM with the 1200 RPM rating. This fan is also rated to deliver 50.4 CFM and 0.85 mmH2O of pressure. Both fans aren't specified to be all that great, but this is where the ventilation in the sides of the bezel and the adjustable louvers on the top hopefully come into play and keep temperatures at a respectable level. There is an added bonus here, in that this chassis also comes with two fan controllers. Each is capable of 12.5W of fans over three connections.
I had no issues trying to locate this chassis either. A quick Google search turned up five or six places that I could have easily grabbed this from. Pricing does vary with the listings as well. On the low-end, at TigerDirect, you are going to find the best current pricing of $105.99 for the chassis, with another $9.89 for shipping. Other places start at this pricing for the case and have yet to include shipping charges, and one listing has the chassis priced at $129.99 with $19.95 listed for fees. I can tell you, it doesn't take a genius to realize where to spend your money, and the price is good for a full-tower with this sort of a feature set.
I say we get right down to it and see just what the Xpredator X3 from Aerocool is all about, and if this is, or is not, the perfect case for you.
