The tray serves up room for graphics cards up to 26 cm in length (you'll have to remove one of the front fans for maximum headroom); and CPU coolers up to 15.6 cm in height.

Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intakes, which can mount a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator; and a 120 mm rear exhaust. Storage options include two each of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch mounts. Front panel connectivity includes one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The case measures 195 mm x 385.4 mm x 314.8 mm (W x H x D). The company didn't reveal pricing.

AeroCool Intros Raven 4 ARGB Cooler

AeroCool today introduced the Raven 4 ARGB, a tower-type CPU cooler that relies on a custom design 120 mm fan. The cooler uses a typical aluminium fin-stack heatsink design. Four 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the aluminium fin-stack. This is ventilated by the 120 mm fan, with a unique frame design that guides airflow such that it envelopes the fin-stack along all sides.

The fan takes in a 4-pin PWM connection for its main function, and 3-pin ARGB for its lighting. The fan turns at speeds ranging between 900 to 1,800 RPM, pushing 24.1 to 58 CFM of airflow, with a noise output ranging between 18 to 27 dBA. The fan uses a hydraulic bearing rated for 60,000 hours. The cooler measures 125 mm x 80 mm x 135 mm (WxDxH). Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA1700, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4.
