Final Thoughts

The Gigabyte 3D Aurora is a fantastic case in terms of features and looks and it's good to see that it's far more then just a slightly readjusted design of another brand's case. One of the cool features that you can see on the front page is the inclusion of the Customizable Light Beam Projector. While the case comes with one that says 3D Aurora, you have a customizable one included that can have your own classy message on it. This is great as you could have something like your nick name shine out when you're at your local LAN event - very cool.

While the only price we could find was in pound (using the current exchange rate), you are looking at just over $100 USD or roughly $140 AUD to pickup the 3D Aurora case. At these prices it does make it a very tempting upgrade for someone who has a steel case or feels like its time to upgrade their current aluminum case which they've had for a while.

The Gigabyte 3D Aurora has got a lot of classy features and while it isn't the cheapest case you will find, you pay extra for a quality case and in fact it's quite a reasonable price for a case of these standards.

When a company ventures into a new product like Gigabyte has with the 3D Aurora you more often then not find a lot of little faults that can be put down as first time errors. It seems though that the Gigabyte R & D team has been hard at work as there is nothing to fault with this product. Overall, we have a great looking case, excellent price and some nice little features pushing it to the top of the to-buy case list which is excellent considering it is Gigabyte's first attempt at an enthusiast computer case.
