The Aerocool XPredator II Case Overview

The Aerocool XPredator II is an updated and refreshed version of the first XPredator case, which was released six years ago. The modification took into account the realities of modern components, although in the second iteration of the chassis there is still a touch of «muscularity» characteristic of those times when the motherboards of the XL-ATX format, video cards over 300 mm long or 1.5-kilogram processor cooling systems were common.
