REVIEW | Aerocool Tor Case: Groovy RGBDecember 9, 2019
Aerocool Tor brings RGB into the playing field with a more tastier take on wielding light through the dark corners of PC casings.
Aerocool has brought some cool iterations of parts into the market such as square framed fans and angled case designs. But on this take, they have reinvented RGB and turned it into a presentation piece of eye catching proportions.

What’s in the Box
The Aerocool Tor comes in the usual cardboard default box but with sufficient cushioning to protect the tempered glass part.
Aerocool has tried to flaunt RGB in different varying ways in the last releases. From flaunting RGB in a different way or presenting it in a fashion that it displaces it evenly and not too centered on lighting up the usual corners.
The Aerocool TOR has revitalized the tinted tempered glass design from other OEM brands and created a more flashy and usable design rather than succumbing to heat and over saturation in the market.
Build and Performance
The Aerocool Tor is a mid-tower tinted tempered glass design that does not skip on basic features of a case.
The Aerocool Tor can accommodate up to an ATX sized motherboard, a generous amount space for storage options, and 3 fans that can kickstart your build without having you worry about ventilation.
The Aerocool Tor actually comes from an OEM design where the front panel and side panel is a tinted tempered glass panel. This OEM design hails from 2 years ago although the Tor has better front ventilation rather than a constricted airflow from the old design.
Perhaps the strength of the Aerocool Tor is how it presents RGB in a balanced and evenly distributed manner. The RGB panel in front of the PSU shroud bridges the gap and presents lighting in a controlled and calm condition.
A blank dark canvas with glow in the dark rainbow paint – That is how I would like to describe the Aerocool Tor. While the RGB aesthetic and presentation ability of the case is a buying factor, the generous amount of space for storage and the improved dual tinted tempered glass design for airflow are some other quick takes to let you decide on buying this “artist’s canvas” of a case.
Final Thoughts and Recommendation
A mid tower design with plenty of space for storage in its category as an RGB canvas with promises to accommodate ATX boards fulfilled and in such a presentable manner. The Aerocool Tor is a smart buy at 3,950 pesos with everything from tinted panels to fans to kickstart your RGB journey.
- Presentable Canvas – The Aerocool Tor provides not just a case for RGB but a canvas to present RGB beautifully in such a controlled area and setting. The included fan hub and controller will further help convenience in this endeavor.
- Free Fans and More Storage Options – Boasting 3 fans in default and albeit not the best amount of space for storage, it is rather quite generous in this product line where cases are seen to skip storage options for more RGB inclined features.
- Minimalists Pass – Minimalists will be quick to dismiss this case and hamper even the presentable effort that Aerocool has provided within the walls of this case. With a lot of people in the market going for static color builds – There will be a part of the market that will not bite on this.
Presenting RGB in a chassis that controls and paints the color like a painting in a blank canvas – The Tor Mid Tower case passes with a gold award as a case that takes a failed design and modifies it to work in better conditions while making it look good in the process.
