Raijintek Agos Review
Up Close: Exterior
The Agos is available in both Black and White, with the review sample we have being well...Black. At first glance it's more than a little boxy with very plain fornt and sides. The roof and left side panel benefit from mesh panels both of which are able to take a pair of 120mm or 140mm fans. At the bottom of the front panel there's what Raijintek claim is a "Special Automotive Intake Air Design for Superior Airflow". While this might be stretching the point a bit there is certainly a lot of mesh and a large scoop area for air to enter the case. The case also has no less than three 5.25" drive bays, you know, for all those ODD and DVD drives we needed to use in 1998. The front I/O though is rather well appointed for and discretely positioned for such a cheap case with a pair of HD Audio sockets, a single USB 3.0 and a single 2.0.
The rear of the case is a pretty standard Midsized tower affair, with a PSU at the bottom and seven vented PCI slots above. There's also the traditional 120mm mesh fan mount and the usual rear I/O cut out. We also spotted a rather unusual plastic handle type thingy on the left hand side panel. We can't decide whether this is simply there to make it east to pull the panel off or is meant to enable a padlock to be placed over the two very small water tubing holes. We're guessing in reality it's a sort of modified Kensington lock with the cables being indented to be passed through it and the tubing ports.
The Agos does seem rather well appointed when it comes to dust filters, with a full length unit running under the intakes of the case bottom. The case itself being held off the deck by four rather sturdy rubber padded feet.
