The Raidmax Aeolus has some good ideas, but they are poorly executed. The best thing going for this case is its looks, rather than its functionality. I do like the somewhat tool-free design of this case as well as the drive flexibility, but the overall functionality of these options isn’t up to par to other cases. While there are four fans inside of this case, not all of them put out a lot of airflow, nor can you adjust them since there isn’t a 3-pin connector to attach to your motherboard or fan controller.
This case can be found at my favorite online retailer for $79.99 shipped, which isn’t too bad for a case with this unique design. Overall Think Computers would like to award the Raidmax Aeolus VL Mid Tower Case a 7 out of 10 score.
- Unique design
- Four included fans
- Somewhat tool-free installation
