Aerocool has been with us for several years now and has built a good reputation.  They have been best known for providing cooling solutions for our computers, but with this latest case they are taking cooling management to the entire system.  The BX-500 is part of the Performance Gaming System (PGS) line and is designed around airflow, function and expandability.  Join us as we explore the BX-500 and see what it has to offer. 

The BX-500 falls into the "B" category of the PGS series.  This is the Ultimate Gaming Series - Black Label.  You can read the image above to find out exactly what that means.  I'm pretty excited to get into this black label case and see what it's all about.
