The Aerocool Aero-1000 does not look like much, and that is its purpose. With all the flashy options out there, with Aerocool being a big proponent of choice by offering some cases in seven different colors, it is good to see a more understated case to turn to. Aerocool manages to offer quite the quality with the Aero-1000 considering it only costs 60 euros. It sports a metal top cover with loads of space for a 280 mm radiator and a front that can take another 240 mm unit.

The plastic latches are a bit of a headache, however. They feel cheap compared to the rest of the chassis, and the silver color is always an issue for plastic parts. It would have been nice if these were just black or at most a dark gray. Another confusing aspect is the price in the US as it is essentially 20 euros more expensive before taxes.

There is not much to say about the Aero-1000. It is well built, can hold all the radiators as advertised, all its features are mostly well implemented, and it comes with three fans at a price that works - more so for Europe than the US.
