Azza Aero 480 Review: Too Much Airflow?

Azza’s latest case release, the Aero 480, is designed to have an incredible amount of airflow in comparison to other cases on the market. The company claims that, on average, the Aero 480 offers three times more airflow than most cases of its kind and size. That being said, are these claims accurate? In this review, we’ll discuss whether or not Azza’s bold claims are legitimate or if you should take them with a grain of salt.

Today, we’re going to talk about the Azza Aero 480 gaming case. This is their mid-tower design that you can mount either your GPU or air cooler on the top of the case, up top. Now, this might sound good on paper, but there are some concerns about how well it really works in practice. Today, we’re going to take a look at this and share our thoughts with you!

I’ve had the Azza Aero 480 for just over 2 months now, and overall I’m pretty happy with it. In this review I’ll cover the good, the bad, and any tips to take note of when considering this case. This review will mainly be based off using the standard fans that come with the case (2x 120mm front intake, 1x 140mm rear exhaust).

Azza Aero 480 Review – Is More Airflow Really Better?

The Azza Aero 480 has been one of the most talked-about cases over the last few months, with some reviewers and case fans calling it the best case they’ve ever tested and others condemning it as one of the worst cases they’ve ever used. I was very excited to test this case myself to see which camp I would fall into. It certainly has some great features, but there are also some things that are lacking compared to other products in its price range.

The Azza Aero 480 may have the most powerful fans of any case on the market, with the ability to provide huge amounts of airflow, but this powerful fan may be taking things too far. Is more airflow really better? Read on to find out!

Azza claims that the Aero 480 can move twice as much air as many of its competitors, including the H440 with its seven fans and the HAF X with two 200mm fans and one 140mm fan. That’s a bold claim to be sure, but Azza’s product page says, If you are ready to take your gaming experience to another level the Azza Aero 480 is the right choice! So, let’s put it to the test!

Introduction

The Azza Aero 480 has a lot of features that you might expect in an air cooler. It comes with two 120mm fans, four heatpipes, and a full-coverage base design. Even though it’s advertised as having too much airflow, the Azza Aero 480 is still one of the best air coolers available on the market today. Read this review to find out why! The first thing we noticed when we opened up the box was how well-designed the Azza Aero 480 is. All of the pieces are modular so they can be assembled quickly and easily. Plus, installation only takes about 20 minutes which is perfect for people who don’t have a lot of time to spend trying to get their PC up and running again.

Unboxing

The Azza Aero 480 arrived in a simple box with just the motherboard inside it. The packaging was minimal and did not include any extras like fans or cables. This is because the Azza Aero 480 is one of the most basic motherboards on the market, so it doesn’t need much to get started. The motherboard has two 120mm fans installed, which are quite loud but provide plenty of airflow for overclocking.

It also has six SATA ports, two PCI slots, one PCIe x1 slot, three RAM slots (supporting up to 64GB) and an M2 slot. Unfortunately I couldn’t fit my graphics card into the case as there wasn’t enough clearance between the PCIe slot and the CPU cooler; this might be different depending on what you’re using though!

Components and Specifications

The Azza Aero 480 is a dual-tower cooler with a maximum fan speed of 2400 RPM and a maximum air flow of 144 CFM. The heatsink features six 6mm heatpipes and aluminum fins with 0.4mm gaps. The cooler also includes two 120mm fans, one on the front and one on the back. It weighs about 2 kg without any components installed, making it a bit lighter than other comparably priced options like the Corsair H100i Pro or Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. It’s also quieter than some other coolers in this range but still quite audible when both fans are running at max speeds.

Technical Design

The Azza Aero 480 has a front-mounted 240mm intake fan, and the rear panel is home to a 140mm exhaust fan. The motherboard tray is well laid out with plenty of room for larger coolers, and there’s an additional 120mm exhaust fan at the top. There are four 5.25 bays, but this also gives space for three 3.5 hard drive bays in the front bay cover where most cases have just two. There are no external 5.25 bays but this is a minor complaint because most people will install their optical drives internally anyway, which means they can be more easily cooled using internal air flow if necessary.

Building, Dimensions, Materials

The Azza Aero 480 is a full-tower case with an open design, which means the motherboard tray, drive bays and power supply are all located at the top. It has five 5.25-inch bays (one of which is externally accessible), two 3.5-inch bays, and seven expansion slots. The front panel includes a small opening for cooling fans or other devices to be mounted in addition to two USB 3.0 ports and headphone/microphone jacks.

Installing components in the case and overview

The Azza Aero 480 can be assembled by a single person in less than five minutes. One of the first things you’ll notice is that there are a lot of grommet holes on the motherboard tray and on the bottom of the case, which allows for great airflow. The entire frame has been made from steel and comes with four rubber-coated feet so it doesn’t scratch your desk when you push it around. In addition, this PC case comes with two 120mm LED fans (which come pre-installed), two USB 3.0 ports, as well as dust filters for the power supply as well as all intake fans to help keep your computer clean!

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Azza Aero 480 is a great headset with a number of features to offer. While the airflow may be too much for some, it shouldn’t deter you from buying this headset. If you are looking for something that is lightweight and offers good air circulation, then this product might be perfect for you. 2. I have found no other headsets in its price range that can beat the Azza Aero 480 in terms of comfortability, sound quality, and design.
