The Aerocool Tor Pro is a larger, more advanced version of the Tor with the ability to hold more cooling components and a larger PSU. It has extra room for going all out in regards to functional components as well, all while featuring the same interesting material mix and unique square aRGB-framed fans.

SHAME ABOUT THE NEAR TOTAL LACK OF EFFECTIVE AIR INTAKE AM I RIGHT?
Yes, the front fans look to be very close to the glass which makes them almost redundant.
I give the case a 3 out of 10.
I give the review... oh wait, it's not a review, it's a bunch of subtitled photos :(

Reminds me of the NZXT H500, which has an air vent strip up the right side at the front. Although, unlike the Aerocool Tor Pro, which as @Joss indicated has mounted the intake fans very close to the front rendering their air pull probably useless, the H500 front fans are set back nicely from the front so they can at least draw air in from the side.

Uh. The point of the size is ... the size? It's just a box with so much pointless space.

Finally that RGB PSU makes sense :) What I liked about this one is: the slogan says "flaunt your rig"...and they did design the thing to flaunt your rig. Even the PSU fan is facing the window. I can get behind this kind of honest advertisement. I'd consider it if I was in the market for a show-case, but it's just not my thing. My TT Urban R31 is the last of its kind...an actually convenient case with 5.25 bays and HDD dock station on the top...they don't make them like this any more. :)

Just reposition the front fans to the inside of the case instead of the outside to increase air intake. This is the first thing you do with this type of case (which their are endless versions of)..

Not enough information to make a judgement. Same was said about Phanteks Evolv / 600 S ... testing showed otherwise.
This would be a valid point if it weren't a bare-faced lie.

And we can prove that by just looking at the Evolv X and seeing that Phanteks increased the air intake size for that case because the original case was known to run hot.
