The BitFenix AEGIS is quite an interesting microATX case. Its shield-inspired front is stylistic and they claim that it also helps to keep down noise. It is offered in bold colors and just like many cases as of late, its designed has been heavy influenced by watercooling capability and modularity. This case can support up to eight 120mm fans or five 140mm fans, or if you are going the watercooling route, it can support dual 280mm radiators or even a 360mm and 280mm radiator combo!
There are two models. The regular AEGIS ICON and the AEGIS Core. The Core model is the one we are taking a look at today. The difference is that the Core does not come with the nifty BitFenix ICON 2.8″ Logo Display, however, it is cheaper at around $80-90. It is available in red, blue, white, black, and of course the color we are looking at today, yellow. Now, let’s get on with the review.
PACKAGING, FEATURES, AND SPECIFICATIONS
The front and back of the box feature a preview of the case and depict some of the features and accessories included. On the right side we can see there is a yellow dot sticker to designate the model and color.
The case is packaged with two pieces of molded Styrofoam on top and bottom to protect it during shipping. It is wrapped in a plastic bag and all the plastic panels are also covered by another layer of protective film.
Overall, the dimensions of the case are 205mm x 470mm x 480mm or 8.07in x 18.5in x 18.89in. It is made of steel for the skeleton and side panels and plastic for the top and front panels. This case is also pretty light at just 6.7Kg or 14.8lbs.
Included with the case is the installation manual, multiple tool-less drive sleds for both 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives, extra screws and zip-ties, a water pump mount, and reservoir bracket (not pictured). Next, we will take a closer look at the case.
