Aerocool PGS Qx-2000 Cube Case Review

I’ve always been a fan of cube cases, especially being a gamer. I don’t want to have to carry my large tower case filled with components to local LAN parties. Cube cases make it much easier, and even if you are not a gamer they take up less space on your desk and usually look better than other cases. Today we will be looking at Aerocool’s first cube case, the Qx-2000. It features a very unique internal design, room for 2 optical drives, 3 hard drives, and a built in fan controller. Let’s take a look at the Qx-2000 and see if it’s the perfect case for your next LAN box build.

Special thanks to Aerocool for providing us with the PGS Qx-2000 Cube Case to review.

Opening up the box we can see the Qx-2000 is nicely protected by large pieces of Styrofoam and plastic.
