Aerocool

As I stated previously, TACENS and Aerocool are two brands under one company, so naturally, they shared a booth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first thing I was shown was a wall of LED fans. Upon closer examination, I thought I was still looking at TACENS products, as the fans looked like LED versions of the Ventus II. The fans feature the same blades as the Ventus II, but these are actually Aerocool Shark fans. The main difference, aside from the brand and name, is that these do not contain the proprietary bearings found in the Ventus II. As can be seen by the LED colors, the Shark is targeted more at gamers.

 

 

In the second photo above, you may have noticed the fan on the right called Lightwave. The Lightwave features a unique "wave" blue LED lighting effect with three modes. You can watch a video of the Lightwave in action below.

 

Aerocool's big unveil at Computex was that of the X Strike series of products. Aerocool showed off a power supply, LED panels, and a case. Little is known about this line of products - except that, so far, everything in the X Strike series looks completely badass.

 

 

 

The next two cases I was shown were from the PGS Q Series, also known as the Compact - Blue Label series. Both cases are Micro-ATX cases, but the second case (Qx-2000) is a rather unique "cube" case. For one, it features a 120mm Quad Blue & Red LED fan in the front that is controlled by a unique fan controller, letting the user choose between low, medium and high speeds, as well as choosing between blue, red, or no LED lighting. The other unique feature is its "double decker" chassis, which isolates excessive heat producing components from the rest of the system. This design has the added bonus of creating more space for high end components, such as accepting video cards up to 300mm in length. The Qx-2000 also features a unique hinged design, as seen in the last photo below.

 

 

 

Lastly, we have an entry from Aerocool's PGS R Series, also known as the Professional - Red Label series. This case features orange LED fans and an orange-painted motherboard, so it certainly stands out from other cases out there. In addition, it features fan speed controls on the top, in three modes - stop mode stops all fans, cruise mode spins all the fans at 60%, and turbo mode spins all fans at max speed.
