All computer cases are created equal, right? Actually, wrong. When you are building your own computer, most people just skip over the case and get one that is cheap or one that they think looks cool. This isn't always what is best though. A computer case has many functions beside the basic "sit and look cool." For instance, a computer case can drastically change your temperatures on all your components: hard drives, RAM, CPU, and GPU are the big ones. Also, a computer case can have a large effect on how much noise you can hear from the internal components like fans and hard drives - pretty much anything that spins. Since the case is used to house your components, the size of the case and how many expansion slots it has available is something that needs to be taken into consideration. Pretty much any self proclaimed cooling expert or modding expert out there will agree, all cases are not created equal.
Now this is where the Chieftec AEGIS mid tower case comes in. With Chieftec's promise of "always bettering themselves," I expect a case that preforms well in all areas. The feature list is amazing, and hopefully it all works, as I will be testing each and every piece. I'm pretty excited to give this case a shot at glory, so lets get right into the testing.
The box that the case in is very busy. With a lot of information packed on both the front and back, along with images of the two color options, there is defiantly a lot going on. The features that are listed on the box are pretty basic, but appear to be helpful. There is also a large "IN THIS CASE YOU CAN TRUST" along the bottom.
