BitFenix Aurora Mid-Tower Chassis
The Aurora is offered with a unique front panel. Here we see a slender midsection as the concave curves run down each side. The steel mesh just behind it follows those curves, and the last step down is ABS plastic like the face is, but while it is curved along the top, the sides are square with the chassis.
At the top of the case, just behind the front bezel, we find the front I/O panel. Nearest the front of the chassis are the USB 3.0 ports, the HD Audio jacks with the HDD activity and power LEDs just in front of them, and the USB 2.0 ports to the right. The back row offers a smaller LED button for the Chroma system, the larger power button, and a smaller reset button.
The top of the chassis tries to mimic the front but has its design elements. The center is curved to match the front, but the venting to either side is a bit different. Also where the top panel drops off at the edge, there is more hidden ventilation in the slots along the length.
The left side of the chassis is flanked with dark tinted glass as the side panel, which is held in place at the corners with thumbscrews. The glass aligns well, and we also see the smaller feet under the chassis with their metal looking wrapping.
The back of the Aurora starts with a raised section at the top which allows for additional cooling support. Below that we find the rear I/O area and the exhaust fan. There are then seven ventilated expansion slot covers with passive ventilation and grommets for external water cooling to the right of them. At the bottom, in the large hole, is where the PSU is placed.
The right side of the chassis is a mirror image of what we found on the left side, except for one detail. Rather than offering a tinted glass panel, this time, the inside of the glass is painted black. There is no way for the wiring behind the tray to be seen once the build is completed.
The feet are small for the size of the chassis, but its footing is secure and stable. There is nothing hidden down here for parts removal, but near the back of the Aurora, we do find the removable dust filter for the PSU.
