Tonight Dave takes a look at Aerocool's XPredator X1 Evil Black Edition Case. The case was not well liked by Waco so take a read to find out why:

Feels weird to hear Dave talking about Dave haha

Gotta agree I can't abide by having a dangerous fan controller. Either scrap it or properly invest in building it properly.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I'm still tempted to wire it up with an old PSU to see if it'll go up in smoke...I just don't have any I'm willing to sacrifice at the moment.

There's just nothing appealing about the case at all especially at its price range. It's just surprising to see an error like that make it through production!

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Overall I think the look of the case is not bad, but thats the only thing that I really liked about it as a whole.

With everything that Waco found wrong with it makes me want to run the other way :(

With the fins open up on top (and who would ever close them?) it did fairly well in terms of cooling too. It's just overpriced for what it is along with that fan controller issue.

Orange = ugly and the fact its not a super tower is another reason for me to not think it more than a waste of time

Aerocoo l= One of the best makers of cheap quality chassis.
There is no good eye catching feature in it and orange sucks as chassis color (IMO).
