Product Overview Introducing the new PGS-A series to the Performance Gaming System (PGS) family.

A, stands for Airflow, it is one of the most important aspect when it comes to building a PC case.

The accumulation of heat slowing down PC performance, the clusters of cables cause blockage of smooth airflow inside limited chassis space, these are the concerns that lead us to develop PC cases with improved cable management ability, greater expandability to accommodate more hi-end water cooling systems and fans, and most importantly the exterior design that excel in the concept of transporting air from one end to the other.

For gamers and PC enthusiasts, they can finally stop worrying the building up of heat and for ordinary users, they can finally get a feel of what a truly good performance of a PC is. Features • Superb gaming case aimed for great airflow performance.
• Specially designed top metal cover with extended depth to easily install 240mm water cooling system.
• Bay covers are designed with a simple flip mechanism for easy removal of bay cover without removing the front panel.
• Support hi-end graphic cards up to 374mm.
• Supports max. CPU cooler height of 155mm.
• Supports max. PSU length of 180mm.
• Magnetic metal mesh sheet on top panel is easy to remove for cleaning and adds style to the chassis.
• Removable PSU dust filter for easy cleaning.

Aerocool Aero-500 Black Windowed Gaming case, Card Reader, USB 3.0, Mini ITX/Micro ATX/ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for a budget case I’m rather pleasantly surprised by this Aerocool Aero-500 case. I wasn’t expecting many frills, and the case is definitely on the lightweight side compared to others I have had in the past. I bought it to rescue a discarded but formerly high spec AM2+ Asus motherboard with a Phenom series 1 cpu, at least 10 years old. Old kit like this may not be up to the latest games, but it is well able to manage office applications. The first thing about the case is that it is black. Black outside, black inside and even all the screws (of which a vast quantity are supplied) are black. Six of the motherboard stand-offs are supplied already fitted, and the other three for an ATX motherboard come in the screw pack. The expansion card slots have those bend-off blanking plates, but one hole is left open at the top and there is a (black again) perforated blanking plate supplied in the kit. It was needed in my case because it was higher than any slot on the motherboard. The switches and USB ports are on the top front of the motherboard as you can see from the illustrations and this is the logical place for a case that will sit on the floor by the side of your desk. The integrated card reader will take SD or microSD cards, which are the commonest ones. There are two USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 sockets, front panel audio and two fan controllers. The two USB sockets or fed from a single plug and the card reader also connects to a USB 2.0 plug using only half of the pins. The USB 3.0 socket connects to an internal motherboard plug, and this has required the addition of an appropriate PCIe card from Scan. I really do think that Aerocool missed a trick here by not having the card reader also at USB 3.0, and I’ve yet to discover if there are any limitations on SD capacity. An SD card with video or lots of photos benefits from USB 3.0 speed, so that’s a pity, and two half connectors are wasted. The fan controllers connect to 2 fans each. I’ve used single speed fans, and there is plenty of room in the top of the case to put two 120mm fans in, or a water-cooling radiator. Probably because of the latter there aren’t those holes in the back of the case for an external radiator. The holes in the steel of the case are covered by a lightly magnetised grid. Nothing will fall in while it is in place, and it is a dust filter of sorts. The front of the case pulls off reasonably easily to expose that that there is also space for two fans behind the grille, with the special screws supplied in the kit. It also showed that the metal of the case has a cutout for a 3.5 inch floppy drive, although that doesn’t come through the front grille, which I think is a disappointment even though most modern computers now longer fit floppy drives. The fans are powered through a pass-through Molex connector, and the latest PSUs don't always provide Molex plugs. The two 5.25 inch cradles do have removable front panel blanking plates which have clips so they do remove very easily. Probably too easily and so I’m going to find something to fill both - maybe two DVD drives, or another front panel with extra USB 3.0 sockets or maybe other formats of card reader. An excellent feature of the case is that down at the bottom there is a set of 3 plastic cradles that will take 3.5 inch or 2.5 inch devices. They are accessed from the side of the case and are therefore easily removed or installed, and you don’t have to fight with the motherboard to get drives in and out. There’s also a huge gap between the upper and lower drive cradles, so that the case will accommodate extra long GPU cards. This is something which you see on a lot of cases nowadays and it did make routing cables a lot easier than I have found in the past. There’s a trick about bringing cables up on the reverse side of the motherboard tray which also helps, and various holes are positioned very appropriately to allow this to be done. Another neat feature of modern case design is that you can put a 2.5 inch device on the back of the motherboard tray and there are four foldout lugs to allow you to do this for one device. The lugs mean that you don’t have to remove the motherboard to secure the device. In a way it’s a bit of a pity that two devices can’t be placed, but then how many SSD’s do we need? The case is designed to position the PSU at the bottom. I’ve had cases where the PSU fan vents the case:: easier when the PSU is at the top, but a trap for dropped screws when it is at the bottom. This case expects the PSU to be the other way up, and to draw air in from the bottom of the case where there is a cutout and a light mesh filter clipped into place. This avoids the dropped screw trap, but does mean that the case needs those extra fans or the fitted 120mm fan. The case stands on plastic feet that raise it to allow air entry to the PSU. The bag of screws contains a few long black cable ties, special screws for the front fans, and even a socket for the motherboard standoffs. This goody bag more than compensates for the few less well done features, added to which the paint on the side panel isn't all that robust and scuffs easily off the edges and corners. Hooray for the black Sharpie pen! I was prepared to find the case acceptable, but I actually like it a lot, because it has loads of nice features notwithstanding that it is ‘budget’ and therefore a little plasticky and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case for the money If your after a great budget case then this fits the bill. It was the case used by custom pc magazine for their budget build pc and it didn't disappoint! Nice big viewing window and enough space on the other side of the case to hide the cables so it looks good! DVD/CD drive bays are a cinch to un-clip and the top magnetic dust filer is easy to clean! All in all it's a great case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money I purchased this case on a whim because i thought it looked really good for £39.99. Very nice to build with and has some great features like the power supply cover, Smoked clear side window and plenty of usb connectivity . Plenty of Hard /SSD drive mounting solutions. I am using a 360MM rad in the front and there is room in the top for a 240. Overall i think for the money this case can not be beaten .
