BitFenix Aegis Micro-ATX Tower Chassis Review

BitFenix Aegis Micro-ATX Tower Chassis




The front of the Aegis has the outside edges wrapped in white, with hints of the side ventilation and the trio of vents low on the bezel at either side. The center of the bezel is then taken up by a shiny black insert with angled corners to match the shape of the bezel, and hidden near the top of it is the TFT screen location.





Just behind the bezel at the top of the case is where you will locate the front I/O panel. There is a fan controller switch, a large power button, and reset button in the black section. Below those, we find a pair of USB 3.0 ports, one to either side of the HD Audio 3.5mm jacks.




Viewing the entire top panel, we see that the mesh in the center is also angled to go with the theme, and it will pop out for cleaning or fan access. We also see that on the angled sides of the top panel, we get more of the steel mesh accents like we saw on the front.




The left side of the chassis offers a steel door with a huge window in it. This allows a view of nearly the entire interior, and without a huge rack of bays to the right, we can appreciate that this window is so wide.




Around the back, we find a pair of grommets to pass tubing through above the rear I/O and exhaust fan location. We also see there are five expansion slots in this design, and that leaves us with the PSU being mounted at the bottom.




The right side of the chassis is much plainer. We get all of the angles and accents the top and front have to offer, but the side panel here is solid and flat.




Under the Aegis, we find larger round feet with rubber pads on them, and across the bulk of the bottom of the chassis there is a large fan filter cut to fit, and held into place magnetically to easily be removed from the front, side, or the back of the chassis.
