Accessories and Documentation




In the box of goodies, we find the basic hardware. Here are PSU screws, fan screws, and six screws for 2.5" drive installations. We see plenty of 6-32 screws for the motherboard, and we are also sent an extra standoff and a socket to drive it into the motherboard tray.





The storage drive cages, accounting for six of the drive locations all use a rail system to support them. The longer ones in the front are for 3.5" drives, while the smaller ones are then used for 2.5" drives.




At the bottom of the box we find the pump plate. This can be installed in the floor or on top of the lower HDD cage, it is padded, and has tons of mounting options. We are also given eight wire ties to help manage cabling.




The Aegis wick installation guide is exactly that, quick. Once opened, you will find a list of included parts and a wiring diagram for the chassis. The last bit offered is a flow chart of plugging in the TFT screen, going to grab the software, and changing the display to suit your own style




Along with all the goodies we got with the chassis, BitFenix also sent along a pair of 140mm LED fans that we will be placing in the front of the chassis. With just one fan we feel cooling will suffer, and at least we have a chance at proper cooling now.




They also sent along a pair of Alchemy kits. These are the shortest kits offered, and were sent with white LEDs. Since we have them, we may as well add them into the mix as well.
