Auriga VF-2001GH ATX Case Review - External Analysis

Aluminium chassis, side windows, cold cahode lighting and blowholes all provide ultimate cooling and looks. All of this comes at a cost though, with quality Lian Li or Coolermaster casings easily pushing the A$500 mark with power supply. Many of us don't have the cash to afford such extravagancies, and are looking for a sturdy case with plenty of room and maybe a few cooling options. Enter the Auriga VF-2001GH. It retails at around A$100, and has a few interesting features, but can it satisfy the moderate tweaker's needs? Aaron "FragMan" Clegg gives us an answer!

External Analysis

 

The Auriga VF-2001GH is a relatively standard sized ATX midi tower chassis. The front bezel is not surprisingly made of ABS plastic and has blue highlights down each side as shown in the picture below.

 

 

On closer inspection the highlights are achieved by painting the existing beige plastic. My sample showed slight imperfections in the painting process.

 

 

Below is the view from the rear. The motherboard tray is riveted in so there will be no quick removal, but that is expected in a chassis of this price range. You can also see the 80mm rear fan location, which comes with a ball bearing fan preinstalled. A standard ATX I/O panel completes the picture.

 

 

The removable side panels have pressed handles to assist with removal. The main panel is held in place by thumbscrews, while the other side has to do with screws. That shouldn't pose a problem though as it is quite unnecessary to access the opposite side due to reasons we will see later.
