AeroCool's XPredator Cube Chassis Looks Like Iron Man, Sort Of

Aerocool has been working hard on making cases that stand out, and its latest number follows that trend. No, the XPredator Cube doesn't go out hunting for your enemies, but it does have room to pack some serious gaming hardware and one of the color options is even styled after Iron Man.

The XPredator Cube is based off of the older XPredator cases, but with a little twist. While it might look like yet another oversized Mini-ITX chassis, this case actually houses a Micro-ATX motherboard. It will also house an ATX power supply, two dual-slot graphics cards up to 345 mm long, CPU coolers up to 187 mm tall, a 5.25" drive and up to three 2.5" or 3.5" drives.

The case is split into two compartments – a top part where you'll find space for the motherboard on a removable tray, and the bottom compartment, which houses the storage devices and the power supply. There's ample room left in the bottom compartment for cable clutter, or if you're enthusiastic about liquid cooling, a water pump for custom water loops.

Airflow in the case is provided by a front-mounted 200 mm fan, two 120 mm or 140 mm fans in the top of the case (with support for 240 or 280 mm radiators) and two 120 mm or 140 mm fans as rear exhaust.

Two USB 3.0 ports, the usual HD audio jacks, a power button and two fan control knobs handle front I/O.

Overall, this looks like a decent case for a gaming rig, with plenty of room and good airflow. If the unique appearance suits your fancy, you could consider picking one up for $125.90 starting next week.

    The chassis looks like part of it was taken off of nanoxia's itx chassis and rosewill/Jonsbo mitx layout cases.

    vertically mounted matx cases would be the most space efficient as they build upwards and watercooling support is plenty - example 350D which is also cheaper than the Aerocool case.

    Nice find Niels, although I'm very eager to see Rosewill's Neutron chassis that was apparently prototype'd/showcased at CES last year.
