Conclusion:

The Apevia X-Jupiter Jr. S Type is a fine mid-tower case. It has clean lines, useful features, and the 250mm fan is quiet. The inclusion of a 120mm intake fan would increase proper airflow, slightly helping direct the flow of the 250mm out towards the exhaust. The airflow seems to muddle around a bit before finding its way out the rear without a front intake fan. The tool-less chassis works well and holds the components securely. Apevia updates the look with a translucent blue plastic and it has a solid feel when engaging the locks. Installation went rather smoothly and the finished edges inside only bit me once or twice. In my situation, the placement of the front panel audio connectors was awkward since the case will reside inside a computer desk. If the connectors were located more towards the front of the case it would be more practical in my case. Overall, the X-Jupiter Jr. S Type is a good looking case that has enough 'umph' to set it apart from the crowd. At first glance at the huge 250mm fan you may think it is going to be a noisy case. Quite the contrary, the case is extremely quiet and there is a good amount of air flowing out the rear exhaust.

 

Pros:

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Proven tool-less chassis
  • 250mm side panel fan
  • Fan controller
  • CPU and HDD thermal probes

Cons:

  • Intake fan not included
  • Instruction booklet missing EMD Bracket & RF Choke instructions
  • Placement of the front panel connector too far back
