AeroCool Unveils Cipher Mid-Tower Case with 15 Drive Bays

AeroCool unveiled the Cipher mid-tower case targeted at those with copious amounts of local storage. It features a mostly conventional horizontally-partitioned layout, but with a key difference. Toward the forward-right region of the case, is a fan vent that holds either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans; and can mount 280 mm or 240 mm radiators. The radiator ends up in the crawl-space behind the motherboard tray, while its fans are on the other side. It exhausts through vents along the right side-panel. The left side-panel has these vents, too, but serves as intake. This is where things get interesting. There are four detachable 3.5-inch drive-cages mounted along the motherboard tray (with clearance for the radiator fans). These cages can either serve as a fresh air-guide for the side-mounted radiator, or hold up to eight 3.5-inch HDDs ventilated by those fans. You can pluck out the drive-cages you don't need.

The storage features don't end there. The bottom compartment has an additional three 3.5-inch bays, two 2.5-inch drives can be mounted behind the motherboard tray, and two on top of the partition, for a total of 15 drives, not counting the M.2 SSDs on your motherboard. Other ventilation options include three 120 mm front fan-mounts behind a mesh intake; three 120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The expansion slots include two vertical slots. Front-panel connectivity is pretty standard, with a USB 3.x type-A, two USB 2.0, and HDA jacks. All this, in mid-tower dimensions of 205 mm x 485 mm x 485 mm (WxDxH). The company didn't reveal pricing.

AeroCool Intros the Mirage 5: Looks Like an AIO Block, But it's Not

At first glance, the new AeroCool Mirage 5 looks like an overgrown AIO CLC CPU block, with its puck shape, glass top, and an infinite-reflection RGB ornament, but it's not. It's a cylindrical, tower-type CPU air cooler. The CPU base features a tiny bit of aluminium finnage. From here, five 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU, conveying heat to a stack of ring-shaped anodized aluminium fins. The fin-stack is ventilated by a high-RPM 60 mm lateral flow fan with a somewhat cylindrical impeller, located underneath the top-plate.

This fan spins between 1,200 to 3,000 RPM, pushing between 39.7 to 74.3 CFM of air-flow, with 0.91 to 2.13 mm H₂O static pressure. AeroCool claims the noise output ranges between 18 to 30 dBA for this fan, since this isn't just another 60 mm fan, but a cylindrical impeller that happens to have a low diameter when viewed from the top. The fan features a hydraulic bearing, and is rated for 60,000 hours MTBF. The cooler measures 100 mm x 100 mm x 145 mm (WxDxH). AeroCool claims that the Mirage 5 can handle thermal loads of up to 150 W TDP. Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA2066, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability.

AeroCool CPU Coolers Revealed: Verkho Series, Prototypes

AeroCool made a splash a Computex 2018, with a slew of new cooling products and cases. We begin with cooling. The company launched twelve new air coolers, besides a new AIO liquid cooler series. The bulk of the new air coolers are branded under the Verkho series, with the Verkho 1, Verkho 2, Verkho 2 Plus, Verkho 2 Dual, Verkho 3, Verkho 3 Plus, Verkho 4, Verkho 4 Lite, Verkho 4 Dark, and Verkho 5.

The digits next to the brand signify number of heat-pipes the cooler has, the "Plus" extension signifies a slightly better fan, "Dual" for two included fans, and "Lite" being the cheaper twin of "Dark," which is well, dark. The common theme among all is that they're tower-type coolers.

Aerocool Announces the Cylon Mid-Tower

Aerocool today introduced the world to yet another member of the famed Cylons, of Battlestar Galactica fame. This one, however, isn't a mindless killing machine; rather, it's supposed to provide users the room and style to keep their PC components inside of (so, I guess it could actually become a killing machine as well, should something like Skynet rise). The Cylon presents itself as an aesthetically pleasing mid-tower solution, sporting an acrylic side panel and RGB lighting. The diagonal RGB strip in the front of the chassis is the origin for the Cylon moniker: light effects can flow through the diagonal strip according to a users' preference in a myriad of styles, thus mimicking the Cylons' famed, flowing red lighting.

Aerocool Quartz and Quartz Pro Cases Pictured

Aerocool showed off the Quartz mid-tower and Quartz Pro full-tower cases at the 2017 Computex.
