Manufacturer:  AeroCool


Buying an awesome tricked out computer case is the nerdy equivalent to buying a suped up hot rod of a car. The case is the outward manifestation of awesomeness inside. AeroCool does its best to combine car and computer with its AeroRacer Pro case. This case features a huge 400 mm side fan, along with the sleek styling's of a car. Unfortunately AeroRacer won't get you as much attention with the ladies as a real car, but it terms of nerd street cred, it works rather nicely. Also unlike a car, this case won't break the bank with its cost. So does the AeroCool AeroRacer Pro have what it takes to leave others behind in the dust? Lets take a look and find out.

Specifications Explained:

This case features a huge fan. But because it is so big and only spins at 400 RPM, it is not that loud. It's only 12 dB at max speed. To give you a frame of reference, whispering is about 15 dB, normal conversation is 60 dB and a lawnmower is 90dB. The specifications also state that the side fan can move up to 250 CFM. CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute, and is a measure of the amount of air that a fan can circulate. The average 80 mm case fan can only move about 25CFM. This also means that the side fan alone can circulate all of the air within an 8ft diameter sphere in a little over a minute. That's a lot of air moving.
