Aerocool Project 7 P7-C1 Pro Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the P7-C1 Pro resembles what we found in the P7-C0, yet is different. The angle of the side sections is more drastic this time, and the white plastic ring is thicker in the P7-C1 Pro as well. We still find the Aerocool label at the bottom, but this time we see the feet out on either side too.
The front I/O panel is slightly different than the original P7-C1. HD Audio jacks and card readers are found on the left, and in the middle are two large buttons to reset and power the PC. Gone are two smaller buttons which used to there. TO the right, we then run into the pair of USB 2.0 ports, followed by a pair of USB 3.0 ports.
The top of the chassis is angled, highest in the center, and made of plastic. Not that far behind the front I/O panel, the P7-C1 Pro opens us with angles slots of mesh to allow the chassis to breathe through the top. We see similar vents near the front, on the side of the top panel, which do work but are more for show.
The left side of the P7-C1 Pro is covered from front to back with a very slightly tinted tempered glass panel. It uses thumb screws to attach to the chassis in the corners, while the bottom of the chassis shows us more venting and the rail style feet of the case.
Out back, at the top, the hole there is to grab and lift the top panel off the chassis with. Moving down, we find the rear I/O next to an exhaust fan, with the seven expansion slots and the external cover plate below that. The bottom of the chassis is where the PSU goes, and the hole at the bottom is for accessing the dust filter.
The right side of the chassis is a vast expanse of steel, which is painted with a textured finish. We do find more venting to match the other side, at the top and the bottom, but what we don't find is a huge bump to lessen the aesthetics.
The rails to either side of the chassis are made of plastic and use large rubber feet to ensure the case will not slide around. Not only are the legs screwed into the bottom of the chassis, but so is the plastic cover panel, and while slotted for air to the PSU, it is complicated to remove the filter for cleaning.
