Aerocool Cyborg X - Something For Gamers


Exterior Design

Gaming Aesthetics

Decked in black with sporty red accents, the Cyborg X sports an aggressive styling that would surely appeal to gamers. To spice things up further (and in a bid to gain some street cred), the Cyborg X also has a generous helping of LED lights in the form of two front and rear fans.

In terms of aesthetics, we think that the Cyborg X is a rather attractive looking casing. It might be over-the-top and even tacky to some, but the design suits its target audience well.

Build quality was also decent as the 0.6mm thick SECC steel panels that the Cyborg X employs felt sufficiently sturdy. However, the quality of plastics used could have been better, as the plastic portion felt flimsy and somewhat second-rate.

The Cyborg X has a cover protecting the front panel, which means you'd have to remove the cover everytime you want to power your system up. As a result, we thought the cover was rather needless.

The power and reset buttons are needlessly concealed behind a protective plastic cover.

The front I/O panel is adorned with two USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port, and headphones and microphone jacks,

As you can see, the right panel allows users to install two optional 120 or 140mm fans for better overall ventilation.

A look at the rear panel. The Cyborg X sports everything you'd expect from a casing targeted at gamers and enthusiasts. The key stand out feature here are the grommets for liquid cooling setups.

The Cyborg X has a front 120mm fan with red LED lights. It looks really cool and complements the casings black color scheme. However, there's no switch to turn the lights off.

At the back there's another 120mm exhaust fan complemented with red LED light. Again, there's no switch to turn off the lights, so you'll have to bear with it when you go to sleep.
