Aerocool P7C1 Project 7 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

/ 3 years ago

There’s a huge demand for unique and premium looking chassis in the system building market these days, but more often than not, these chassis often come with a hefty price tag that leaves many consumers out of the running to purchase them. Aerocool realised this and have created their new Project 7 product range, which features all the unique design we’ve come to expect from an Aerocool chassis, fitted out with funky multicolour LED lighting effects and a huge tempered glass side panel window to show off your new hardware, and it does it for a very reasonable price.

  • Futuristic and modern design.
  • Intelligent PWM fan control board included.
  • 7 LED lighting colors & 4 LED Lighting mode selection.
  • Large acrylic side window for clear viewing of chassis interior.
  • 19-29mm of space for cable routing.
  • Supports either 360mm or 280mm water cooling system on front panel.
  • Supports either 240mm or 280mm water cooling system on top panel.
  • Support max. high-end graphic cards up to 375mm.
  • Supports max. CPU cooler height of 165mm.
  • Supports max. PSU length of 200mm.
  • SD & microSD card reader included.
  • Removable PSU and front dust filter for easy cleaning.
  • Pre-drilled holes for cable management to reduce cable mess.
  • PSU cover design.

Equipped with 9-colour LED lighting in the front panel, as well as a magnetic LED strip, getting the right look for your build has never been easier. There will also be two models of this chassis hitting the market, one in black, the other in white; we have the while model in the eTeknix office today.


In terms of capabilities, the Project  7 chassis is well equipped, with room for a modest amount of 3.5/2.5″ hard drives, a huge amount of room for extra-long graphics cards, room for 6 x 120mm fans (1 x pre-installed), and room for up to three radiators throughout the top, front, and rear of the chassis.


In the box, you’ll find the magnetic LED lighting strip, all the usual screws and fittings, as well as a Molex powered fan hub, which should help keep a lot of cables out of sight and away from your motherboard.

    Nice review!
    I have an E-ATX board 12 inch x 10.6 inch ( 30.5 cm x 26.9 cm ) and Im wondering if would fit in this case

    Nice case. I hope there is a better spot to hide that ugly LED strip. I was hoping to squeeze it into one of overlapping metal trims.

    I’m not sure why but it really bugs me how much that graphics card is drooping on the right.

      I agree with you. The overall look is good, with an interesting design that isn’t over the top and I like it, but that LED strip… It is just so damed ugly, what with being able to see all the LEDs etc. Given the frosted finish of the front ones I would pay a little more for them to be housed in a similar casing.

      I thought my eyes were going off with the GFX card drooping! My minor uniform gene doesn’t like LOL

      Also why does the review insist on calling it tempered glass? It isn’t, by its own wording: “acrylic side window”. Nothing wrong with it being acrylic, keeps the price and weight down, but please stop trying to make it into something it isn’t.

      I do love the case, even considering getting one when i do my next major upgrade next year. I just hope I can gain access to those LEDs in the front to add my own controller in and make it more fancy 😀

        Actually there are 2 versions of this case 1 has acrylic window and the other is tempered glass, this one is tempered glass version according to aerocool site.
