Welcome to yet another review from us here at Today I'll be checking out a case designed and manufactured by Aerocool, called the Zero° (Degree). This case is of a new tower designed called a "Flexi Tower", which basically is an upside-down ATX tower, but the rear plate can be swapped out for one accommodating BTX configurations. Today we'll be looking at the Zero Degree setup for ATX, and installing an ATX system in the case.

The Zero° comes in your typical retail packaging for a case complimented with nice logos and images depicting the case that awaits inside.

Moving in a little closer we get run down of the features and specifications of the case.

1. Simple and elegantly brushed aluminum door with diamond-cut effect at edge of the metal mesh
2. Ventilation holes on the CD ROM bay covers to allow smooth air flow for great case cooling
3. Modular unit with power/reset button / 2x USB2.0 / Mic & Headphone
4. UV active acrylic side panel
5. Large 25cm fan at side panel for great air flow and cooling
6. 1x 12cm quad blue LED silent fan at front of case for great air flow and cooling
7. Excellent PC case for Gamers and DIY.

Inside we find the case encased in protective foam and wrapped in plastic.

Removing the protective packaging material gives us our first look at the Zero°.

On the right side of the case is the panel window, quite the opposite of what most of us are used to. The fan mounted to the window is large, 250mm, and rated for 133 CFM at just 31dBA. This should be a good setup for moving plenty of air through the case, but might hinder installation of some larger CPU coolers that are available.

The left side panel is plain with an array of holes for ventilation.

The front bezel door of the case is an attractive brushed aluminum with a hole in the middle for air to pass through, which we will see up-close soon.
