Aerocool Xpredator Black - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Im getting the Xpredator Evil Black for my Birthday on the 3rd of Feb (cant buy it in advance - waiting for payday), I went to the shop to see it today, that thing is huge and the space inside it is incredible and its really cheap compared to other brands offering the same thing.

I already own an Aerocool case so I know the quality is pretty good and the cable management options is quite impressive, I cant wait!!! biggrin.gif

You can buy this case in American, it's re-branded by Rosewill. The case is called THOR. I have it, look at the similarities. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147094 Also, incase you were wondering it's got more problems then a cracked out prostitute.

Cons-
-Quality control issues;
- one of the mobo stand off holes was off a bit and took some work to get the screw in
- one of the 3 pin fan connectors had fallen off
- internal 3.5" bays 2 were damaged and require me to use some pliers to reshape
- Not GPU friendly...It honestly took me an hour to install my 6950. It was a huge pain. I ended up having to cut off some brackets in the back to fit my GPU in. I dont know what happened here, but nothing lined up right.
- screwless design for gpu install is worthless. doesnt fit right and is way to tight when locked down.
- motherboard is way to high on this case, my 8pin connect for my mobo is almost too short. As you can see in the pic below, I will have to buy an extension if I want to hide the cable. Also on this note, with an after market cooler in the case good luck getting to anything on the top of the motherboard. Unless you have little kid hands.
-Top fin design did not open up as much as I would like it to. I say maybe 30% is all that it opens. It's a cool design, but I would like more control as to how much I would like it opened too.
- Only 1 LED fan ( sorry I like LEDs )
-Front I/O was wired totally backwards.

All in all there are some serious quality control issues with this case. Which upon reading reviews of Rosewill product's seems to be the standard. I even contact Rosewill about the issues with this case and they just gave me a shrug and said you can send it back for a 15% hit or get another Thor case.

Thats one heck of a defective product they gave you, "internal 3.5" bays 2 were damaged" thats an instant refund where I come from my friend, same with the fan controller and mobo holes, I would have made their lives very difficult.
Luckily the Rosewill is rebranded and it is slightly different than aerocool (which means it was possibly assembled in the US by a crap company)

The shop Im buying from is pretty good with defective products, so Im still going to buy it and let you guys know if this one is better.

EDIT: UPDATE: I bought the Xpredator today and there wasnt a single thing wrong with it, excellent build quality, it weighs 13Kg's and its massive!
Its very nice, I like it alot. Like I said I think Rosewill just screwed yours up unfortunately..
