The AeroCool PGS Vx-e Mid Tower Chassis is that of the performance gaming system – value series of cases which represents performance quality flashiness and value. From AeroCool:
[ad#review1047-top]Performance – The High Quality SECC Chassis with depth of 455mm to support the most high-end VGA cards in the market (up to 310mm in VGA card length). The Vx-e case can also ump out airflow like no other. The front turbine w/ 14cm LED fan creates lots of cool air intake. The chassis also supports 5 x 12cm/14cm fans (the front and side panel can support either 12 or 14cm fans) in different positions to cool your system. It is a perfect gaming machine!
Quality – The “Vx-e” case is beautifully finished with “mirror-finishing” front and top panel design. The combination of high quality SECC chassis with no scratch corners and screw-less systems make this case an easy install.
Flashiness – The combination of “Engine” style design and LED lights (power/reset LEDs and LED fans) make this case a “spotlight” when you attend LAN parties.
Value – Last but not least, this chassis represents great value. It offers the highest CP ratio (cost to performance ratio) and it is a “Must Have”!
AeroCool has put the best of quality, style, and value all into a single case with the PGS Vx-e. It boasts a turbine style cooler complimented with a highly polished black bezel. The side does not contain a window, but rather a mesh siding almost triangular in shape.
The turbine, found at the bottom of the front panel, is a large silver ring held to the case by four plastic latches, or so it should appear to be. The turbine fins are protected by a mesh grill, all of which are powered by the 140mm blue LED fan behind the turbine.
Above the turbine are the five 5.25″ drive bays, one of which converts to a 3.5″ bay. The PGS Vx-e follows a lot of other cases by implementing a mesh grill for the bay covers. The I/O panel, shaped to form the top of the case, has two USB ports and mic/audio ports. The power/reset buttons are slightly different and sort of remind me of piano keys.
Moving onto the rear of the case shows that the case has a bottom mounted power supply and a couple of fan grills on the bottom of the case to give it some extra cooling.
The back also shows the 120mm exhaust fan, motherboard I/O slot, PCI slots and water-cooling holes. Two thumbscrews hold the one side panel to the case.
