Aerocool presents two new members of the PGS-Q chassis series. The QS-101 and QS-102 are slim desktop PC cases, which can be used for office computers or compact home theatre PCs (HTPC). Depending on the individual taste and environment, both chassis can be placed either horizontal or vertical, thanks to the supplied stand.
Aerocool is offering its QS-101 and QS-102 chassis in many colors, like a classic Black Edition, a fresh Red Edition and even a White Edition. Users are also given much free room for choosing the right components for their system, as both Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards are supported. The chassis has 100 x 300 x 415 millimeter dimensions and offers space for CPU Coolers with a maximum height of 8 centimeters. Furthermore, up to four Low-Profile expansion cards with a maximum length of 24 centimeters can be installed.
The 5,25 inch (13,34 cm) bay can be either used for mounting a common ODD (such as a DVD or Blu-Ray player) or one 3,5 inch (8,89 cm) HDD and two 2,5 inch (6,35 cm) SSD. Another 3,5 inch HDD can be installed into the dedicated area.
Easy cable management is possible thanks to the pre-drilled cable routing holes. Aerocool Engineers have designed the inside of the QS-101 and QS-102 with a special focus on cooling optimization. This is why the SFX Power Supply Unit is mounted in the front of the chassis, where the fan-grill of the PSU is facing towards the side-panel with the dedicated fan-exhaust-holes. A special cable is guided through from the back to the front to assure safe connection of the PSU.
To support constant airflow inside the chassis, both the QS-101 and QS-102 are equipped with a silent pre-installed 80 mm axial-fan (1.600 RPM, 28.40CFM, 21.6dBA). Another highlight of the two new models is the nicely designed front panel, where users are able to access the 5,25 inch bay and the I/O Panel. Depending on the model, one power button, one Mic, one Audio and one USB 3.0 connector are located in the front. In case of the QS-101, one additional USB 3.0 port is implemented.
The Aerocool QS-101 and QS-102 are available from etailers and retailers at a suggested retail price of $25,00 (excl. Taxes).
