Introduction

Gamer Style

Mid-tower casings are popular amongst users because they offer the best blend of functionality and practicality. They are substantial enough to house a decent amount of components but not to the extent of taking up too much space.

And recently, casing manufacturers have been focusing on enthusiast-class mid-tower casings. These are casings which, while adopting the more compact mid-tower form factor, packs all the features enthusiasts and gamers would expect, such as grommets for liquid cooling setups, multiple-fan ventilation systems, adequate depth for high-end graphics cards and so on and so forth.

Established in 2001, Aerocool began life as a thermal management company specializing in industrial computer systems. Since then, their business grew and expanded. And today, it counts computer peripherals such as computer chassis, cooling fans, and power supply, as part of its business operations.

With us today is the Aerocool Cyborg X mid-tower casing, which has an aggressive and sporty design. Fittingly, the Cyborg X belongs to the company’s “Professional” series of casings and it is targeted at gamers who want, and we quote, “a stylish design case with strong personality”. With such intentions, it is easy to see why the Cyborg X was designed the way it is. The design is rather attractive and has, for lack of a better word, a "gamer" feel about it. Hence, we are confident it'll win over the hearts of many gamers.

That said, the Cyborg X is not just all show. Aerocool says the casing packs enough high-end features to satisfy enthusiasts and gamers alike, and that’s certainly something we’ll be checking out. But first, here are the Cyborg X’s specifications.
