Galaxis did ok for themselves with the ARES case. It offers a very unique look to the front and the top of this chassis, and that is going to be the main thing that makes or breaks this chassis for most buyers. The side panel using both a window and a 180mm fan so you can not only see inside the ARES, you can keep everything nice and cool. With all four fans powered up, there is a strong source of blue light from inside the chassis since the 180mm and two of the 120mm fans flood the chassis and spill out the window and the roof into the room. I won't say the case is annoyingly loud, but there is more noise than I would prefer to hear.
For one of two new designs on the market from Galaxis, I think they are offering a solid chassis. I just wish I had more solid information on the pricing or when this chassis will arrive at Newegg.com. With manufacturers like Cooler Master on the prowl in the mid tower segment with offerings from the CM690 II on through the Storm series of cases, they have steam rolled the $70-100 segment of this market. The ARES can stand on its own, and does offer everything that Galaxis showed on the box, and what I got from reading up on their history, they are offering a quality part, with somewhat innovative ideas. Now we just need to wait to see if the budget friendly concept will ring true.
Even though this chassis brings me back to the times of using my Antec 900, with the layout and basic ideas of the chassis being very similar, there are enough variances in the fine touches to allow this chassis to stand on its own four feet. As long as Galaxis can deliver this chassis in the $50-60 USD range, I feel it may really stand a chance in today's market.
