Up Close:  Exterior

The Aeneas (careful now) is a stocky horizontal motherboard cube type case measuring 288x380x430mm.  It's available in Matt Black, or the White and Black version we have here today for review.

The version we have also has a large thick acrylic side panel window, but if you prefer not to peer inside your PC then rest assured you can have a solid panel, although this does come with some perforations and mounts for a 140mm fan.  The perforations on the right hand side panel are there for the PSU which lives on its side down in the rear bottom tight hand corner.

The roof of the case has a strip of black metal ventilation running between the two broad shoulders of the case.  Along with a pair of both USB2.0s and 3.0s there's also a power and reset button along with activity lights and the usual HD audio connections.  The button with the small triangular symbol on it is used to control the blue LED strips which run the length and front panel either side of the black mesh.

The roof ventilation wraps round nicely to be continuous with the front panel area.  stealthed into this are a 5.25" bay cover and for some inexplicable reason a 3.5" device bay!  Seriously?  An external 3.5" bay!

As with a great many cube cases, the Aeneas has an horizontal motherboard layout.  Above the rear motherboard cut out for this we see that Raijintek have very generously included a 140mm white bladed fan, with mounts for a 120 should you wish to swap things about.  Yet another of these fans sits beneath the five vented PCI slot covers, with a cut out for the side mounted PSU over in the opposite corner.

The case sits on four elongated rectangular plastic legs, each of which has a long rubber pad adhered to it.  The base of the case is pretty sleek with only the odd screw head protruding

Allow me to comment on the "superior German engineering", stereotype that Raijintek would like to confirm! I'm starting to like them. Their products are very cheap for what they offer, and seem to be of great build quality! (now someone has to teach their designer that, "one doesn't simply expands the sides of a mATX case to make a cube :P )
When was the last time we saw a case at this price get all straight 10s?Quote

Top Review Gary, and I Agree with you Thelosouvlakia, I'm growing quite fond of Raijintek hardware.. what you get for your money is amazing, they seem to be taking on board what reviewers say about rival cases and implement them into their own products. I'm just now flicking through their catalogue and it's all great stuff.
