    AeroCool announced its latest PC case, the PGS B series XPredator. This ATX full-tower makes sure you never run out of room for extra large motherboards such as the EVGA X58 Classified 4-way SLI or the Gigabyte X58A-UD9, multiple water cooling loops, and a heap of hard drives. The case measures all of 600 (H) x 234 (W) x 555 (D) mm, mostly making use of steel. The case is mostly open, with a perforated front, and almost completely perforated side-panel, a gill-like vent on top (Alienware-inspired). Its front-panel lets you control fan speeds, apart from providing three USB 1.1/2.0, one USB 3.0, one eSATA, and audio.

    Interiors are decked up in black and orange, drive and expansion card installation is tool-free. The motherboard tray has a hole giving you easy access to coolers with back-plates, abundant holes to help cable management. Ventilation includes one included 140 mm front intake fan, provision for one bottom 120 mm intake, four orange-illuminated intake fans on the side panel to maintain a positive air pressure, one top 200 mm exhaust, and space for one 120/140 mm fan. There are four water-cooling tubing holes. The AeroCool XPredator is priced at €139.90

    I agree; however I do feel (personal opinion) that the orange interior is ugly and would probably paint it black. But that is just me///

    All Aerocool cases are horrible in all aspects. Each "top end" case features a ridicously functionality that is absoulutely useless most notably a while back, AeroEngine. Palm on face.
    I guess people continue to buy them because they "seem" to be good for their low price. Maybe they have improved since the days i had been selling them, but
    Cheap stuff are usually never good.

    I can't decide if it's beautiful or hideous. The orange interior and top look fine, but the grills and the stuff at the back...not so much.

    It might be because it is so early in the morning, but I kinda like it...at least it is different.

    Its rear side could had been wider and with a place for another fan. But I like the front panel and ports.

    Lol, t77 got robbed!

    I like the case, but are all four orange 120mm side fans included? The wording of the article is ambiguous.

    Also, dare I take the Euro pricing only to indicate limited availability? :S

    Looks like it has an extra group of screw holes for an SR-2 motherboard at the right edge, or am I seeing things?

    Only the Top and the Front Fans are included. To read here: Aerocool XPredator Evil Black edition



    The SR-2 will not fit, because it's 381mm in width and the XPredator is inside only 330mm in width.

    It is kind of funny. When I first saw this thing this morning I thought of t77's case as well.
