The Aerocool Cruisestar has a the ATX form factor. ATX is the most ubiquitous of case standards, providing the largest array of compatible hardware on the market. Using the ATX standard, the case can house motherboards and power supplies with form factors ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. The dimensions of the case itself (LxWxH) are 441mm x 200mm x 483mm.
The Aerocool Cruisestar has seven expansion slots, so there is plenty of room for extra components, which may be a deciding factor when planning on the longevity and build type of a PC system. The case has one 5.25" drive bays, which is enough room for an optical drive but little else, and with just one 3.5" drive bay, there is basically no room at all for expansion. With one 2.5" bay, however, there is enough room for a laptop-sized HDD or solid-state drive.
Made primarily of Aluminium, the Aerocool Cruisestar is built to be strong, lightweight, and well-ventilated. This often comes at a price premium, but some see the benefits to be completely worth it. Whatever your case's material, it is important to keep a consistent airflow so that heat doesn't build up inside. It is therefore advised that you make use of the available built-in case fans and fan installation sections.
