Raijintek Aeneas Review

Introduction

For the greater part most of you will have already worked out why we've chosen such an unusual image for the page header.  For those of you who haven't, then best you pay close attention.  The Aeneas (pronounce it as you will, but be careful) is the third case we've looked at from German company Raijintek.  The first, the Agos was a bit of a disappointment due to some quality issues, and the second, the Metis, simply blew our socks off.  The Aeneas then has to be good if we're to adopt a positive impression of the company and the quality of its products.  No pressure then!

So what do we have?  Well the Aeneas is a cube type case able to take M-ATX and M-ITX boards.  It has storage for up to 5x3.5"/2.5" drives as well as a 5.25" bay should you still need one.  It also appears to have some pretty awesome cooling options, with 2x120mm fans in the front and 2x140mm fans in the back as well as room for a whole host of other sizes and what would appear to be prolific water cooling support.  For the full skinny though best we have a look at the Technical Specifications.

Allow me to comment on the "superior German engineering", stereotype that Raijintek would like to confirm! I'm starting to like them. Their products are very cheap for what they offer, and seem to be of great build quality! (now someone has to teach their designer that, "one doesn't simply expands the sides of a mATX case to make a cube :P )
When was the last time we saw a case at this price get all straight 10s?Quote

Top Review Gary, and I Agree with you Thelosouvlakia, I'm growing quite fond of Raijintek hardware.. what you get for your money is amazing, they seem to be taking on board what reviewers say about rival cases and implement them into their own products. I'm just now flicking through their catalogue and it's all great stuff.
