AeroCool Fall-Winter Collection Available Through Retailers

Over the past month, AeroCool unveiled six new products featured in its mainline and Strike-X brands, including the Strike-X XPredator Devil Red and White Editions, Strike-X Air, and Mechatron Black Edition cases; Silent Master 200 mm fans, and Strike-X X-1000 fan-controller. AeroCool made an addition to the lineup, the Touch-2000 fan controller, and made all products available through retail channels in the US.

The Touch-2000 is a 2-bay fan-controller. It is characterized by a brushed aluminum bezel, and a large LED display, with feather-touch buttons. The Touch-2000 supports a maximum of five channels with 25W maximum output per channel. In addition to five fan speed channels, the controller supports temperature monitoring from five thermal probes that can be stuck to key components such as heatsinks, hard drives, etc., for real-time monitoring. The color scheme of the LED display can be changed among 7 options. Overheating alarms can be set. The Touch-2000 also doubles up as a 2-port USB 3.0 (standard header) and audio (HDA header) front-panel, to help with cases that lack the ports.

AeroCool Strike-X X-1000 Fan Controller Detailed

After unveiling four new cases for this fall, AeroCool shifted its focus to accessories such as fan controllers. The company has two new products planned for this fall, one of which is its Strike-X X-1000. A combination of a five-channel fan controller, USB 3.0 front-panel ports (standard front-panel header), and audio jacks (HDA header), the X-1000 is a front-panel replacement. Each of the five fan channels has its own analog speed control, and can deliver a maximum power output of 25W. The controller also includes five thermal probes that can be stuck onto key components such as CPU cooler, graphics cards, memory, etc. AeroCool plans to release the X-1000 to the market by early-October.

AeroCool Readies Mechatron Black Edition Chassis

AeroCool's fourth addition to its PC case lineup this fall is the Mechatron Black Edition, following the XPreadator X3 Devil Red and White Edition, and Strike-X Air. Part of the PGS B (performance gaming series black) line of cases, the Mechatron Black Edition is an ATX mid-tower with all-black interiors and mostly-black transformer-esque exteriors. 0.6 mm-thick SECC steel makes up its frame and most of its panels. Internally, the case is spacious enough for CPU coolers 175 mm tall, and video cards 330 mm long.

The Mechatron Black Edition is one of the very few cases with 2.5-inch drive bays that are not adopted from 3.5-inch ones. The case features three 2.5-inch internal bays, four 3.5-inch bays, and three 5.25-inch bays. The motherboard tray features valved cutouts for cabling, and a large cutout around the CPU and memory areas. The bottom-mounted PSU tray is designed for extra-long PSUs, with dust filters.

Alongside the XPreadator X3 Devil Red and White Editions, the new Strike-X Air is among four new cases the company has planned for launch in Fall, 2012. Featuring the distinct black+red styling characteristic of the Strike-X family of cases, PSUs, and notebook coolers from AeroCool, the new Strike-X Air is an open case designed for enthusiasts that need quick access to components, but like to keep components organized (not laid out on a table). Unlike several cases in its category, the Strike-X Air features an armature design that lets you completely open up the top, on which a 200 mm fan is suspended, giving you complete access to components installed on the motherboard.

The Strike-X Air supports XL-ATX motherboards, with up to 10 expansion slots, and room for graphics cards as long as 33 cm. The case features three each of 5.25-inch and 3.5/2.5-inch drive bays, with hot-swap back planes. There is room for unconventionally long PSUs. The side compartment that holds the drive and PSU bays is ventilated by a 120 mm fan. Front panel connectivity includes a USB 2.0/1.1 and three USB 3.0 ports (standard headers); and front-panel HD audio jacks. AeroCool plans to make the Strike-X Air available some time in early-October.
