A lot of times, the case for a computer is a secondary thought. However, the case, in addition to looking cool, can provide several other benefits, like noise reduction and cooling. By the same token, however, a case may not have any of these benefits, or even worse. Every component in a computer generates heat, including the major contributors like the CPU, GPU, and hard drives. The size of the case is also something that should be taken into consideration, as the more expansion cards you have and the more hard drives you have, the larger a case you will need.
This case, the AEGIS, is made by Chieftec, a company that prides themselves on "always bettering themselves." This case is the full tower version of the AEGIS, meaning it has more drive bays and more expansion slots than the typical mid tower case. While the mid tower didn't get a great review, hopefully the full tower performs better.
The box housing the Chieftec AEGIS has a ton of information packed all over it, front and back. Also there are two giant pictures of the case, in both the silver color and black color. As with the mid tower, along the bottom of the box, in large bold lettering, it states "IN THIS CASE YOU CAN TRUST."
