AeroCool Readies XPreadator X3 Devil Red and White Editions

AeroCool is working on as many as four new gaming PC cases for launch in fall-2012, two of which are part of its premier XPreadator X3 line, the Devil Red Edition, and White Edition. The Devil Red scheme is an even combination of black with blood-red, which could go well with a ton of hardware (such as motherboards, graphics cards, sound cards, SSDs, and PSUs that are using this scheme. The White Edition scheme, on the other hand is mostly white with a dash of black.

Built with 0.7 mm-thick sheets of SPCC steel, the new XPreadator X3 cases are bound to be sturdy (and heavy). The ATX full-tower cases will measure 533 mm (D) x 223 mm (W) x 527 mm (H), and be spacious enough for CPU coolers as tall as 186 mm, will feature eight expansion slots (to support double-slot graphics cards using the bottommost expansion slot on the motherboard), graphics cards as long as 31 cm, and eight 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays. The cases will support as many as nine fans to ventilate it from various points. The XPreadator X3 Devil Red and White Editions from AeroCool will be generally available by the end of September, 2012.

their cases don't look all that bad with some good options.

I have my eye on the strike x-air but it hasn't hit the states that I know of.

Black/Red has a bit too much red accents, otherwise looks good. Silver/Black looks great.

The white version would be nice if there was a solid side windows.

I have the same type of case (Red inside, black outside) with red LED fans. I'm kinda getting bored of it (And all cases for that matter).

White is only refreshed model (new window). I own XPredator White. It took me quite a while to find a good case, but I'm glad I choose this one, it looks bad ass.

They also added more racks for hard drives and there are less USB connectors on the front panel.

Ive seen aerocool cases in person. They feel flimsy and cheap imo.

I used to have an Aerocool M40 (media version of the small QX2000). I was very impressed with it, especially bang for buck. I used it as a lanbox before I got an SG-07 however, I found the construction and useful bits like tie down points and vents very useful. The only downside I found was that the paintjob wasn't the best, I managed to scrape a nice chunk out of it one day which is when I changed its use to a media PC.

The design/layout was fantastic, if anything more useful than a BitFenix Prodigy or SG-07. It just became to big to lug around to lan parties though (being a dual level micro-atx-motherboard on bottom layer, HDD/ODD/PSU on top).

The white Xpredator X3 certainly looks the business but it would be nice if the side window sat flush with the rest of the side panel. The window construction/design looks a little dated.
