Raijintek Aeneas 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!

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.
