One thing I do like about the Strike-X Cube was the space under the motherboard tray. On the image below, you see the drive cage.
The drive cage is removable, this makes drive installation a lot easier than as on the DS 200 where the drive bay is in very close proximity with the PSU.
The PSU is on the other side of the drive cage, and between the PSU and the front panel is a huge area for cable storage.
Overall, the casing seems pretty good with some limitations here and there. Below is the spec taken from the product page.
More details at the official product page.
Once powered on, the front fan is lit by red LED, and the sides come with red LED that shines through the ventilation. The exhaust fans run silent, and they can be controlled with the X knob in front. The X knob is not tied to any fan so if you’re familiar with wiring, you could even get it to control the CPU or GPU fan.
Here’s my final setup. 🙂
The AeroCool Strike-X Cube Black Edition retails at RM 349, quite a high price to pay for an MATX casing with flaws here and there BUT it definitely looks great and should be part of your consideration if you’re into those edges like those you see on robots. The plus point about the Strike-X Cube is that it has plenty of clearance, much more headroom for cooling systems compared to the DS Cube. The fan control knob is a plus point too!
