Case Build and Finished Product
Of course with no external openings or view of fans and their LEDs, the front of the Aegis will look this way no matter what you put into the chassis, and we do like this about certain cases.
There are no complaints with the motherboard installation, but the card is sagging quite a bit. The real issues we have here is that when you install fans to the front, it conflicts with using the top HDD cage any longer. On that same note, without PSU, we had to eliminate the lower cage as well, leaving us with no options to store 3.5" drives.
We tried a dust cover, and they do snap into place well, but we have lost it for this specific motherboard. The card aligns well and needs no flex to screw it in, and the PSU mounted easily as well.
We followed the wire tie points assuming there would be room for our minimal cabling, but even this caused issues with door panel fitment. This chassis is really designed to use a flat cable PSU, and even then the room here is just enough to get by.
Now that the Aegis is all back together, we do like the look of the chassis as well as the view through the side window that shows off every single thing that you decide to place inside of this chassis.
Powering it up, we pressed the large button in the middle. This then illuminated the LED above the headphone jack, and we did see the flicker of the white LED to the right of it. We also see that there are three LEDs in the fan controller button that is no denoting we have it on the highest setting.
Stepping back to take it all in, we like the additional lighting that the Alchemy LEDs offer on the inside, but while booting the chassis, we did see the TFT screen showing the Fenix logo, by the time we got to take this image, the screen went blank and never came back on again.
