Aerocool brings the second addition to the GT chassis portfolio by introducing the GT-R mid-tower. The new GT-R case is designed to satisfy the demand of gamers and power users, who are looking for a well-designed case with much space for latest high-end hardware. Thanks to its more compact dimensions and the great design, GT-R mid-tower is the right companion for ambitious Gamers, frequently visiting LAN-Parties.
The new GT-R utilizes the unified and futuristic GT series exterior design with the choice between a white and a black version. Its main frame is made of 0.7 mm thick SEEC steel, in order to assure a very solid and firm chassis structure. The clean mesh-front-panel has been designed to provide great cooling capabilities. Users are able to mount up to six case fans inside the chassis, two of which are already included. One 180 mm case fan (700 RPM, 39.21 CFM, 25.5 dBA) is located in the front of the chassis and is equipped with four LEDs, which are illuminating in red (Black edition) and blue (White edition) color. Another 120 mm axial-fan model (1.200 U/min, 36.4 CFM, 26.5 dBA) has been mounted in the rear, offering great airflow inside the chassis. It is possible to mount additional fans in the top and side panel, to further optimize the airflow inside the GT-R case.
Power and reset button as well as the I/O panel are located in the center of the top-panel, which are perfectly matching the unified futuristic design. The I/O panel includes one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port as well as the HD-Audio and Microphone Jack. Due to the fact that not every motherboard is supporting the USB 3.0 header-pin connector, a USB 2.0 header-pin adapter is supplied.
The inside of the GT-R mid-tower is well structured and covered in black color. More than enough space for high-end hardware is assured: Latest on-market VGA cards with a length of 293 mm and CPU coolers with a total height of up to 172 mm can be easily installed. For a better usability, GT-R case is equipped with several openings in the motherboard tray. One big opening for backplate-based CPU coolers has been implemented, to reduce the hassle during mounting process.
Several additional openings have been placed to allow more convenient cable management. Underneath the PSU location area, a removable and washable dust filter is pre-installed, in order to stop dust from getting inside the PC case. Two pre-drilled openings with rubber protection for water-cooling pipes are located on the back side of the case.
Convenient and fast mounting of up to six 3.5 or 2.5 inches hard drives or SSDs is assured thanks to the tool-free HDD mounting trays. Five drives can be mounted in the HDD compartment using the supplied mounting trays. Another 3.5 or 2.5 inches drive can be installed without hassle in one of the four vacant 5.25 ODD bays, which are equipped with a tool-free mounting system as well. The required adapter for the drive mounting is supplied with the GR-R case.
