AeroCool PGS Vx-e Mid Tower Chassis Review

Installation

Installation for the PGS Vx-e was fairly straightforward, but was annoying at times. If you want to install one to two 12cm/14cm fans onto the side panel the mesh has to be removed, attached to the fans and then fastened back to the side panel.

Installing the power supply on the bottom of the case is pretty straightforward. Most power supplies should have a fan or some sort of ventilation system that will blow out the bottom of the case. You can also install another 120mm fan for even more cooling.

Installing the motherboard is fairly simple considering the fact that most of the standoffs are already built into the case. A few extra are provided to fill in any necessary gaps.

This case has an interesting setup for a securing mechanism on the expansion slots for the motherboard. Instead of attaching components on the inside of the case, you actually attach them outside of the case. A small cover, attached by a single screw, secures the expansion cards into place.

Installing a 5.25″ drive is pretty straightforward, just remove the bay cover, slide the bay in and secure it. I had some difficulties removing the bay covers; I had to get a screwdriver to pop it off. Once I got it off, aligned it with the front bezel and secured it to the case, I noticed that the tool-free device didn’t really hold it in place very well as it would wiggle easily.

The next step, installing 3.5″ drives, was somewhat annoying. You have to attach extensions on either side of the hard drive in order for it to fit into the case. I prefer the hard drive rail systems much better than this implementation.

Once everything’s attached there’s plenty of room for cable management and airflow throughout the case.

The case also looks pretty nice once it’s powered on.
