Aria Gladiator Juggernaut System Review
Up Close - Internals
One of the very few issues we have with the Carbide 500R was the cable routing options, so Aria have done a good job getting everything tucked neatly away as much as possible. The dangling cable by the drive-bays is for the side fan which has obviously been removed for these pictures.
Two cards of gorgeousness. Even with the rather strange power cable arrangement the cards just visually dominate proceedings. The Be Quiet PSU is one that we've always rated highly, and has plenty of efficient power for the whole Juggernaut system.
The G45 is good enough considering that all of the Z77 motherboards are solid performers. You could quibble about a GD65, but realistically the MSI is plenty. The Exceleram White Sark is a new kit to us at OC3D, but being 1600MHz @ 9-9-9-24 it is dependable if unspectacular.
A small niggle has to be the transparent nature of the PSU cables. Given how well the rest of the system blends together we'd prefer to see either some BitFenix extensions, or even a PSU that has more opaque cables.
Speaking of blending together, the combination of the white RAM, white Arctic Cooling CPU fan, and the white surrounds on the Corsair AF120 quiet edition roof fans, really looks awesome. It would be easy to just throw bits in a case when the main event (SLI GTX660Ti's) is so appetising, but Aria have gone the extra mile.
