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.

That's really cool. I don't think I'd buy one, but it's still a neat concept.

really like the idea - - if only plastic wasn't the main material for this case it might catch my eye

I like it one of the most thought out open bench's I've seen, just wish it was made out of better materials. I really like how it looks like it was built to be on the desk as a almost a centerpiece of technology for your desk at home. Oh, and I'd be nit picking, but it seems flashy, and I like my case's subdued, but that's just me, and this is AeroCool after all. Might pick me up one just so I have a case to put the kids computer in when they get older, and don't need a case with lockable's.

Haven't heard them in a while, but a worthy come back. It looks pretty good from the video and the pictures. The sound of the commercial wasn't that bad, it's got this pump up moments. But I feel they really need to drop their current slogan: Be cool! Be Aerocool!, seriously?!? Lemo...

I like the looks, but if this is supposed to be used as a full time case then you better hope you have quite coolers. This looks like it would make a nice test bench though.

bout freakin time. Took them over a yr to bring this over. This has been out for a while now but only in the UK iirc. I wrote them and they said they didn't know if it was coming here. I actually like the look of it and all you can do with it. Gotta feeling its conna be priced a lil up there. A few wks ago I seen them on ebay.uk going for 149euro ($186 us)

It's a neat case.
Although I prefer closed air cases.
Looking at this it doesn't take much to make a closed air version of this case and still look really nice.
I really like the idea of motherboards laying down horizontally.
Unfortunately dust can be a problem and I hate dust on cool looking computer parts:p

Its called an open air case buts its nothing more of a tech bench for oc'ers. So theres gonna be a premium price for that. for dust and what not. If your worried about dust or live in a dirty place. This ain't for you. I have several rigs running in the open but way less dust then anyone would expect since I keep cleaned.

I'd probably buy this if it wasnt made my Aerocool. If their cases are anything like their fans, it'll fall apart within a month.
