Raijintek Aeneas MATX Review
Up Close: Interior
With both side panels removed we can see right into, or for that matter right through the Aeneas. The horizontal Motherboard tray is able to support both M-ITX and the slightly larger M-ATX motherboards and along with a huge CPU cut out, it pleasingly has rubber grommeted cable management holes with offsets for both sizes of board. Under the Motherboard area there's a rack supporting up to four 3.5" drives with each white tray also able to accept 2.5" drives as an alternative.
Along with the pre installed pair of 120mm fans the front of the case is able to support a whole host of fans as we'll see when we strip the case down. Up in the roof there's also room for yet more fans of varying sizes along with the internal structure supporting a single 5.25" and 3.5" drive bay respectively. We're not sure of the need for external 3.5 drives or devices in this day and age, but guess if you needed that 5th internal 3.5" bay you could see this as a positive. Thankfully, this whole structure is removable with screws meaning the roof area is better freed up for water cooling radiator support.
Looking at the case from the opposite side affords us a better view of the PSU mounting area and the generous space left behind it to stash and route cable lengths before they are brought up from below.
Turning the case slightly affords a view of the 2x140mm fans that live in the back, along with some of the thumb bolts that allow the motherboard tray to be removed. Yes, this case has a removable motherboard tray!
