Raijintek Agos Review

Up Close:  Interior

A £40 with Rubber grommeted cable management holes!!!  Take note everyone.  It's also nice to have the good sized CPU cut out we've come to expect and of course a selection of drive bays, with the Agos offering 3x5.25" tool free up top and 6x3.5"/2.5" below.  With the case being 200mm deep it's also able to accept CPU coolers up to 160mm in height which leaves your options well open, and with both 3.5" racks in place GPUs up to 290mm will fit just fine.  As we'll see in a minute, the upper bay is removable, which boosts the max GPU length up to  410mm

The floor of the case has room for a 120mm fan as well as full length standard PS/2 PSUs, which are well isolated on decent sized rubber pads.

Raijintek have included a black 120mm fan in the rear extract position, and although the roof can accept up to 2x120mm or 2x140mm no fans are included.  Strangely there's also a large magnetic mesh filter up here.  In fact, in our review sample there were actually two of these filters.  We guess the guy on the production line must have been feeling particularly generous as our case went past him.

The upper HDD cage is removed by releasing a few screws and does significantly increase the internal capacity of the case, meaning that GPUs up to 410mm can be installed.  Sadly the lower HDD rack is riveted in place meaning that any dreams of 240mm rads up front have been dashed, at least that is without a visit from Mr Dremel.  Raijintek have at least included a 120mm fan in this intake position, which also benefits from mesh filtering.

Turning the case round we find a decent amount of cable tie points and well spaced good sized rubber grommeted management holes.  With just 15mm of space there's not a lot of actual room for cable management, but provided you're not planning a monster build with shed loads of cables you should be fine.

Sweet I have been waiting to see your review of this billy bargain case, I'm actually really impressed for just £40, but if Raijintek had put just a little more effort in, like 38mm more height in the roof and 5mm more cable space at the rear this would have been a real competitor even if they bumped the price to the £50 margin. That said it's got some modding potential for those who want to mod on a budget.Quote
