The Aerocool SI-5200 in DetailThe black Aerocool SI-5200 demonstrates the manufacturer opting for a simple, yet effective design that offers a distinctive acrylic glass front. This invites users to install LED fans (available separately) for some impressive lighting effects. Apart from the power- and reset buttons on the top of the case, the accessible I/O panel includes audio in/out, status LEDs, a USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports.
The entirely black interior is divided into dual chambers in order to separate the cooler components from those which produce more waste heat. The large primary chamber on the left side holds the graphics cards and the processor, while the right chamber is where components that require less or passive cooling are installed. Additionally, the Aerocool SI-5200 includes a bay on the bottom where the drive cage and the PSU can be installed. Additionally, an optional 120 mm fan can be installed which allows installed hard drives to be kept supplied with cool, fresh air. This elegant and minimalist design brings an array of advantages along with thermal- and cable management options.
In order to provide installed components with an adequate supply of air, the Aerocool SI-5200 allows for up to six 120 mm fans. The front of the case can be equipped with either up to three 120 mm fans or one 240 mm radiator to keep hardware cool, these must not exceed a height of 27 mm. In order for GPUs to be kept as cool as possible, the side panel of the case provides space for a 120 mm fan. A preinstalled 120 mm fan is located in the rear and allows heat to be exhausted away from the back of the case. The ATX-format PSU is installed in the bottom of the case and is kept thermally separate from the rest of the system - needless to say this also helps keep the case tidier overall. The removable dust filter in the bottom of the case also help to keep dust to a minimum.
The array of options open to the Aerocool SI-5200 in terms of what can be installed is impressive, and the same goes for the drive cage which supports up to two 3,5"- or three 2,5" drives. If users forego the installation of a radiator in front, this increases the total possible max length of the installed graphics card from 342 to 370 mm. The CPU cooler can be up to 164 mm tall and, thanks to a large cut-out in the motherboard tray over the socket, any ATX-, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX board can be installed with ease. Multiple openings between the chambers make cable managing the interior of the case significantly easier.
