Raijintek Asterion Review

Stripped and Build

There's not really a lot to strip off the Asterion, pretty much just the roof vent and front panel.  The front panel though is an absolute sod to remove so don't say we haven't warned you.  With it off though we can see that there's room for 3x120mm fans and 2x140mm, although to be honest, with a bit of modding we recon you could get a third 140mm in there.

Why are we looking at the inside of the front panel?  have we lost the plot?  Nope.  We're looking at this because this is where you can mount a slim line DVD drive should you so desire.

Believe it or not that's a full size ATX board in there.  Looks lost doesn't it!  What this does mean though is that there's stacks of room for other hardware, for example pretty much any size GPU you can find will fit just fine.  What's strange is that the Asterion doesn't feel like it's a massive case when you look at it from the outside.

As we've only done a really basic build, there aren't that many cables to sort.  What is obvious though is that no matter how much you stick back here there's going to be ample room to bring it all together nice and tidy.

Ooooh the exterior looks very clean, Kind of reminds me of the EVGA Hardon Air, Sleek lines.Quote

I have to agree that is a rather pretty case.

Hear hear. Nice review Gary.

I was bowled over by my Metis for the money it cost. I loved how everything was perfectly symmetrical too so you could orientate it however you wished (inverted, window right or left etc) it really was awesome. And I also loved how it pretty much stripped down into nothing too. No rivets in sight and every single last panel was separate.

The front panel on it is amazing too. 5mm alu IIRC. Sod to cut into though !Quote

Really nice. I wonder if they'll be released in a range of colours like their smaller ones were? The black and the plain Aluminium would look nice but they did a really nice blue in the Metis.Quote

this is probably the first thing Raijintek have releases that hasn't had the "meh" factor. most of their stuff has looked cheap, tacky or a rip off but this is quite a nice looking case.
When is Tom going to give you a GPU upgrade for your reviews? Quote
