Rated 5 out of 5 by S40GTG Brilliant Airflow
This is my first time building a PC but this case is great for the most important part of any PC (Airflow).
The only down side is at the bottom of the case there is 2 intakes similar to the top of the case, but only 1 bottom intake has a filter plate fitted which is where the PSU goes so thats lucky.
Front intake also has a filter system on it so all in all a nice clear and cool system.
P.S as the title says :- Aerocool Strike-X One Mid-Tower Gaming Case Red LED Fans with Side Window w/o PSU (THIS ONLY COMES WITH 1 BLACK CASE FAN NO RED ONES)

Rated 4 out of 5 Alright for a budget case
Got this for a 5820 build, but looking back I should have gone with bigger. I intend to upgrade a bit in the future and these smaller cases simply can't provide the airflow.
The main issue I had, which almost stopped me completely, was mounting a cooler. I will never go water cooling so had to go big as I was cooling a hyper threaded hex core. An Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 was my choice. Although I measured the dimensions correctly, I failed to take in to account the extra height caused from mounting the motherboard.
I was warned that the Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 was high so made preparations to only use 1 of the side fan mounts. As it turns out, this cooler is barely 1-2mm away from the actual side of the case. Not the cases fault at all.
There are some strange brackets inside. Seems to be far too many in fact. They work, but the instructions would have been easier to follow if not translated from Chinese. A few minutes thinking them through and you'll understand where everything goes. Or not, as I threw most of them away.
It may not seem like a big deal but when building a high end system, don't cheap out. Go for a max case with front, top and side fan mounts. Anything else is a bonus.

I am extremely satisfied with this product.
- FX 6300
- Corsair H100i
- Asrock 990FX
- PowerCool 650W
- TP-Link Wireless
Its an excellent case. Before my H100i, I had 6 fans to cool the whole system and I was able to place them perfectly. And there are some brakets/holders which allows your HDD, SSD, floppy drive, DVD/CD RW, BluRay, or Fan controller to be placed without screws. All screws provided. Looks superb with LED fans.

Yes After having built more computers for folks than I care to remember I was not expecting much from this case at the cheap cheap end of the market.....BUT
I was very pleasantly surprised by the build quality and the extras which came with this Case.
For it's size and class I found it very roomy and made working on it very easy.
I like the fact that it has the drive bays as all 5.25 inch and then you use the adapter plates to mount your particular size drive, it even has one for a laptop HD and the tool less mounting clips are easy to use and effective.
The adapter plates for the Hard disks have the native ability to fit a cooling fan and you get more than enough of these plates to ensure any drive configurations or any position you may want to mount the drives are possible.
Also the unit has a bottom mounting PSU with a small removable filter on the bottom of the case where the PSU draws air in which I think is a nice little extra you don't normally see on a case of this price.
For a cheap gaming case for a teenager I would Definately buy one of these again or maybe one of the other cases by Aerocool i'm sure the quality and spec will be similar
