“Aeolus defines itself as “the ruler of the winds.” This Raidmax gaming case delivers a fresh visual design as well as exceptional functional use. This properly cooled system keeps a constant stream of air moving throughout the entire case at all times which is vital for proper function and longevity of electronic components. The 430mm depth of chassis supports longer VGA cards and removable HDD cage allows more room for a larger sized power supply. Tool-free and cable management allow for easy assembly at all times. Rule your PC world with Aeolus.”
The front of the Aeolus starts to show off its’ unique design. Aside from three 5.25” removable drive bays on top is a front mounted 120mm blue LED fan smack dab in the center of the case. Four triangular designs stick out on the top and bottom of the front panel, giving it a unique look.
The fan rests deep within a plastic wall, giving the front panel even more depth.
On the top of the front panel are the power/reset buttons and indication LEDS. The easy access connections reside on the top of the case and include a USB 3.0, USB 2.0, eSATA, and audio/mic jacks.
The top of the case has two 120mm intake fans, also residing deep within plastic just like the front panel. The top and rear fans are used for exhaust while only the front fan is used for intake.
The side panel of the Aeolus isn’t your typical side panel. There’s a window that covers up about a third of the panel and instead of a clear plastic, it’s more of a smoky black. There’s room for a 120mm fan also on the window. Both side panels also have their own handles which make it easier for removing the panels.
The back panel of the case shows off more of the blue accents of the case, including the rear 120mm fan and expansion slot covers.
The Aeolus has a bottom mounted power supply along with a fan filter which is easily removed from the back of the case.
The right side panel, unlike the left side panel, has no window, but instead has a unique design push out, presumably to help cable management on the interior of the panel. The case also has four large feet which help keep it elevated off of the ground, allowing for exhaust from the PSU fan.
