MODTHEBOX would like to thank Jeffrey from Tradex Information Technology Incorporation for sending the AeroCool Jetmaster Jr Gaming Case for review.

Introduction:

Pre-modified cases have started to evolve by moving from traditional cookie cutter designs to products that take on a completely different look and feel. In the past few months, we have witnessed new gaming case designs being patterned after specific themes based on movies, science fiction as well as mythological characters. While the idea of manufacturing a case around a theme is great, many products have failed to provide the basic foundation of good case design which includes functionality and cooling. AeroCool Advanced Technology based out of Taipei, Taiwan is a well known high-tech and thermal solution company who specializes in the area of CPU coolers, VGA coolers and "Super-conductors". The company has used its expertise in thermal design to recently release a brand new mid-tower case designed specifically for the gaming community. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the AeroCool Jetmaster Jr Gaming Case.

Specifications:

The AeroCool Jetmaster Jr is a pre-modified mid-tower case that incorporates several modifications and a custom paint finish as an all-in-one solution for users looking for a complete package. The case is priced under a $70 CDN price margin making it the ideal enclosure for consumers on a budget. Here are some specifications taken directly from the Tradex Information Technology website:

The AeroCool Jetmaster Jr Gaming Case was shipped in a standard white double-walled corrugated box with the case manufacturer's logos and images printed on all sides. The packaging inside the box was good with the case sealed in protected plastic with two pieces of polystyrene located on the left and right hand sides.

Out of the box, my first impressions of the AeroCool Jetmaster Jr Gaming Case were positive. Movie buffs will be pleased to know that AeroCool has based the design of Jetmaster Jr around the popular "Terminator" movie series. The case measures approximately 430mm (H) x 200mm (W) x 440mm (D) and supports all full ATX motherboard formats. The entire exterior has been painted silver with a decent car show finish. As an alternative, AeroCool also offers the Jetmaster Jr in a two colour combination theme of black and silver. The composition of case is made up of a light weight Steel chassis combined with formed plastic parts which make up the futuristic front bezel design. The case does not include a power supply in order to keep the price down but consumers can pick up any compatible unit from local retailers suited for their particular configuration. The AeroCool Jetmaster Jr Gaming Case includes a small assortment of accessories which includes metal PCI slot brackets, motherboard stand-offs, mounting screws, case feet and an ATX I/O panel.
