Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Much like the ARES, the Atlus is built mainly of a SECC steel body and door panels. The front bezel of the chassis is where most of the changes took place. Instead of the protruding, shiny black plastic, the Atlus has a more subdued, steel mesh on the top two-thirds of the bezel. The lower third is used to house a 120mm fan with an Optimus Prime looking face guard covering the intake. Both sides of this intake, along with the steel mesh panels are backed with a thin layer of foam acting as a dust filter. With the front bezel being very easy to remove, cleaning the filters is very easy.
Internally there are bays for up to four external 5.25" devices, room for an external floppy drive, and room for up to four 3.5" devices below to finish off the drive bays. The motherboard tray is laid out well, and even offers a rather large CPU access hole in hopes to allow for cooler removal or cleaning without having to remove the motherboard. There are no wire management holes, and this chassis is not designed to pass wires behind the tray. This may make wiring the chassis a little bit tougher. Cooling the components, the Atlus ships with a 120mm in the front, a 120mm in the top, a 120mm in the rear, and a 180mm fan in the door, all of which contain blue LED lighting, and the chassis still offers up room for two more optional 120mm fans to be placed inside if desired. Around the door fan you will find the same window that the ARES has, but aside from being a black chassis, that is the only obvious style cue shared between the two.
At the time I wrote up the ARES chassis, I wasn't too sure on pricing, but now I know that chassis was released with a MSRP of $69.99. I was also told that both chassis' should be listed on Amazon currently, and one should be able to go and get one now if desired. The only issue with that is that I hand scanned over 630 mid tower cases at Amazon, and there is nothing from Galaxis on the list. Moving on, at the time I got the information on pricing from Galaxis I was told the Atlus, when it is available, will retail for $10 less than is brother, bringing the Atlus in at a MSRP of $59.99. Truly a budget priced case! - It's too bad that Google or Amazon both come up empty in the searches I have done, because it looks like Galaxis has done very well with these designs.
