The Auriga VF-2001GH certainly has a market out there for itself. Many casings in this price range are made from inferior 0.6mm steel or come with only 250W power supplies. The Auriga is made from 0.8mm steel which made it quite sturdy, so much so that I would feel confident using it as a seat for a considerable period of time (level of comfort aside). The 300W PSU ran my overclocked Athlon XP rig perfectly well along with two CD drives and two hard drives, so no complaints there either.
I would have liked to have seen the standard 80mm case fan located in the front location by default. If the other fan is not fitted, that leaves the system with two exhaust fans (1 case, 1 PSU) which isn't what I would call optimal. It would be much better to position it in the front as an intake fan (people adept with a screwdriver can easily relocate it themselves).
The screwless bays are a breeze and worked well. I personally don't like the card retention system though; to me it created unnecessary clutter. Some will like it though, especially those who move their rig around a lot. Even so I can recommend this case for someone looking for a cost effective case with decent cooling and interesting additional features, and give it a deserved 9 out of 10.
- Plenty of room inside
- Screwless bays and side panel
- 2 80mm case fan locations
- Decent 300W AMD/Intel approved PSU
- Paint quality lets the finish down
- Card retention bar annoying
