BitFenix Aurora Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Inside the Aurora Continued




The lower section of the motherboard tray offers a large wiring hole with a grommet and two additional tie points. The floor of the chassis is ventilated to allow the PSU to be installed with the fan on the bottom, and it is supported by four rubber pads stuck to the floor.





Inside of the rear of the Aurora, we find the one and only included fan with this chassis. It is a 120mm fan with no LEDs and uses a 3-pin connection for power. As for the expansion slot covers, and what holds in the video cards, this chassis uses thumbscrews.




Behind the motherboard tray, we are offered 20mm in some areas and 25mm in others for wiring. We see a large hole at the bottom, behind the lower drive cage for ease of wiring, and we also see an additional pair of 2.5" drive trays above it.




Near the top of the motherboard tray is this PCB. This is the controller for the SSD Chroma feature. The wiring from the bracket plugs in at the top left, the control switch wiring is already plugged in at the right, and the large plug at the bottom takes a 4-pin Molex connection for the power of this system.




We like that every bit of the wiring is black - the wires and the connections at the ends. There are the wires for the buttons and LEDs in the front I/O panel and the USB 2.0 connection next to it. There is the USB 3.0 connection next, and lastly, we have an HD Audio cable with an extension on the end. This way you can shorten it for smaller boards, or leave it in place for the larger boards with that port at the bottom left corner of the motherboard.
