The Galaxis Atlus Mid Tower Case
The Atlus does take some of its lines and basic concepts from the ARES, but gone is all of that shiny black plastic. Instead the Atlus is finished in a textured black this time, reducing fingerprints and it matches the paint on the steel much better. At the top there is the front I/O which curves around into the front bezel and seamlessly opens up to allow four 5.25" drives and a floppy drive to be installed through the bezel. The bottom uses the side vents, next to the large chunk of plastic, to allow cold air into the front of the chassis.
The front I/O has also changed. There is connectivity for two USB 2.0 devices, 3.5mm jacks for front panel audio, a large square power button, little reset button, and this time a fan controller as well.
Looking at the Atlus from the side, it looks a lot like the ARES, minus the large fan cover on the top of the ARES. They both use the same side panel which contains a one piece window segmented with the plastic fan shroud. Behind the steel mesh of the door, Galaxis houses a thirteen blade, blue LED, 180mm fan.
The rear of the Atlus is laid out with the rear I/O and 120mm fan at the top. In the middle you will find two grommets for water cooling, seven expansion slots, and a large ventilated area. Unlike the ARES being vented with square holes, the Atlus gets round holes for venting that matches the design in the front steel mesh. At the bottom you will find room for a standard PS/2 power supply with ventilation inside, so the power supply can be installed fan down. The right side of the chassis is just plain black, not even a finger dent in the door panel to be seen.
Looking inside the door panel, you can see that Galaxis uses rolled edges to strengthen the smaller chassis as well as its door panels. These doors are a bit snugger fitting than those of the ARES, and these actually took a bit of work to remove. Hanging in the panel you will find not only the window screwed into place, but you also can see the 180mm fan a lot better, as well as the 4-pin Molex connection needed to power this fan.
