Raijintek Agos Review

The Build

Some builds go smoothly, some not so smoothly.  Have a guess from the images below which of these camps the Raijintek build falls in to?  If you haven't already got it have a closer look.  Call me a bluff old traditionalist, but I think it's fairly fecking basic that the motherboard stand offs have to actually line up with the holes in a motherboard.  We've never yet come  across a case where they don't, that is, until we reviewed the Raijintek.  Granted, a few minutes with a pair of pliers, and a bit of a test fit followed by a few more "adjustments" enabled us to finally get the motherboard in, but you really shouldn't have to resort to this sort of thing simply to get your motherboard onto the case.  And just in case you're wondering, although we've only shown two of the holes, bottom right, and bottom central, every other one was like this.  Not good Raijintek, Not good at all.

At least round the back there's just enough room to do a decent wiring job, even if we were a bit hot and sweary from out excursions round the front.  A decent sized trough at the bottom of the case provides room for all unwanted lengths.

The Agos can take coolers up to 160mm high and GPUs up to 410mm with the upper drive cage removed, which, leaving 3 underneath should be plenty for anybody these days.  Just a shame that bottom cage is riveted in place.

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
