Aerocool XPredator X1 Devil Red Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅09-11-12

Getting your kit into XPredator X1 isnt as straight forward as with other computer chassis. The inside of the system isnt as tidy as it usually is for our system builds because some of the cables have to trail across the motherboard and there are limited areas to store redundant cables.

Clearance behind the motherboard tray is minimal and therefore cable management suffers somewhat. Plus its hard to comfortably fit the alternate side panel on if you do have the cables routed over onto this side. Well look into this closer in the next section.

Installing a HDD is a little different compared to traditional computer cases. The HDD has to be installed onto a tray which then has to be placed into the HDD rack and an optical drive tool-less mechanism is used to securely fix the tray in its place. The trays provided can host both 2.5 and 3.5 drives.
