Aerocool Releases Cylon RGB Chassis Mid-Tower
Aerocool today introduced the world to yet another member of the famed Cylons, of Battlestar Galactica fame. This one, however, isn’t a mindless killing machine; rather, it’s supposed to provide users the room and style to keep their PC components inside of (so, I guess it could actually become a killing machine as well, should something like Skynet rise). The Cylon presents itself as an aesthetically pleasing mid-tower solution, sporting an acrylic side panel and RGB lighting. The diagonal RGB strip in the front of the chassis is the origin for the Cylon moniker: light effects can flow through the diagonal strip according to a users’ preference in a myriad of styles, thus mimicking the Cylons’ famed, flowing red lighting.
The Cylon Chassis is a mid-tower with a LED RGB moving diagonal over the front panel. There are 13 kinds of lights animations with a total of 6 RGB flow modes and 7 monochrome modes. The left side reveals an acrylic panel Drive bays include 2.5/3.5 inch hidden bays x2, 2.5-inch bays x2, seven expansion slot, the graphics card can be up to 346 mm in length (with front fan) / 371 mm (without front fan).
The Cylon appears to be close to a Rosewill or Nox case in terms of overall platform, with the same 1x 120 mm top, 3x 120 mm front, and 1x 120 mm back fan mounting options, and an overall design that is reminiscent of those options from other manufacturers. CPU cooler support goes up to 155 mm, and VGA support can go up to 371 mm (sans one of the three possible front fans) or 346 mm (with a fan mounted in front of the VGA). There’s support for 2x 2.5″ drives, and 2x 3.5″ drives. The top I/O is quite interesting, though, at 1x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, audio, and an SD/microSD card reader.
