AeroCool Spiral Galaxies Case

     Everyone seems to have a custom case these days. The PC enthusiast can choose from a playful bright color case trimmed with plastic and glass or an aluminum marvel with more lights and fans than a Christmas tree. Speaking of Christmas, this year I've been blessed with a new case from AeroCool called the Spiral Galaxies...

     The AeroCool Spiral Galaxies case is all business.  Right out of the box, the Spiral Galaxies case oozes quality.  The simple look immediately reminded me of a high end server case and every step of the build reinforced the feeling of solid dependability.  AeroCool has chosen a non traditional layout inverting the power supply location to the top of the case.  This results in the window location on the right rather than the normal left.

     The power supply sits snugly in the top between three rubber shock absorbers.  The location is no accident, with the PS installed right above the hard drive bays; the PS exhaust creates an airflow path that cools the drives without the need for an additional hard drive cooler.  The bays are honeycombed with patterns of holes to direct airflow.  This same honeycomb design is carried through the entire case providing high airflow to every part of the case.  A system of locking rails allows the drives to install quickly with no tools needed for most components.
