Final Thoughts

Aerocool had done an about face when it comes to cases, at least since the last time we were graced with a sample from them. Comparing the two is night and day different, and in the right direction, we must say. The PC-07 is solid, structurally stable even without the side panels; it is aesthetically pleasing, it has lights to play with and lots of dark tinted tempered glass.

With only one fan, the noise level is kept at 33 dB when the fan is turning at full speed, and from a distance, it will be much less audible. The interior is modular, there are a few options for mounting drives inside, and the finished product offers a clean interior, which is easy to wire manage, and leaves the video card, motherboard, memory, and the cooler all in full view, with not much else to be seen.

There are a select few things we did not find to our liking. We do wish there were rubber grommets, but only as a personal preference. The tint level in the glass makes it a non-issue, and with rolled edges around the management holes, there is no worry of shorting anything. That leads us to the second issue. The level of tint used in the tempered glass. We get that being dark it delivers a clean and modernist design, which is what Aerocool said they were doing. However, we would like less tint to be able to see where all the money went for the build.

You could try to add interior lighting, but you would need the brightest the market offers, and a lot of it to make any visible difference. The last thing to mention was the not-so-great thermal performance. While the chassis is well ventilated, that single 120mm fan and less than 40 CFM, it has a hard time of ridding heat from this system. Of course, this can easily be remedied with additional funds for fans, but then the overall price can go up exponentially as well.

As it stands, the way the P7-C0 is shipped to the door, there is a lot to like, and only by picking it apart were we able to find a downside. Even with the $104.99 MSRP, we feel that Aerocool is not out of reality in that request, and we do feel many would gravitate to it at that price. What is awesome, is that right now, you can jump over to Newegg, and grab this chassis at just $93. Aerocool has done a complete one-eighty and has delivered us a chassis we would recommend to many. Project 7 seems to be a great line up for Aero-Cool, and in this P7-C0 mid-tower chassis, there is loads of value to it, modularity, and options to be a chassis that can stand the test of time.

Honestly, we cannot wait to get our hands-on the next step up in this series and see what else Aerocool has in store for us with their Project 7 cases.

The Bottom Line: Aerocool stepped up its case game and comes up with a damn fine case! There are a couple of minor hitches, but nothing that should stop you from buying the sleek, modernist, sturdy house for all of your expensive components.
