Raidmax Alpha Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the Alpha is nothing stellar when it comes to flash or extreme design. The top, bottom, and sides are angled away from the bezel; two trim lines are running down either side. At the top of the bezel, we can see the ODD bay cover, leaving the rest of the panel to be opened for mesh, which is backed by a solid white plastic sheet.
The top of the chassis is also flat and basic in its design, with just a thin bit of black steel running around the edges. The bulk of the top panel is covered with a tight plastic mesh which is magnetically attached to the chassis.
The left side of the chassis is mostly a blue tinted window to view inside of the case. The amount of steel around it is even on all sides, and as we work towards the front, we find the side of the bezel is open to be used as the intake.
Moving it much closer to the side of the bezel, we run into part one of the front I/O panel. In this section, we are given the power button, the reset button, a green PC activity LED, and a red HDD activity LED.
Behind the Alpha, we find the rear I/O and exhaust fan sitting high in the chassis, leaving little room above the motherboard. Of the seven expansion slots, only one cover is reusable, and all of the screw access is done from outside of the chassis. The bottom opening is then used to mount the PSU into the Alpha.
The right side of the Alpha is flat, textured, black, expanse of steel, and it matches up tightly to the front bezel. This side too has a section on the bezel to allow air into the chassis, above and below the rest of the I/O panel bits.
Part two of the I/O panel is what we see on the right side of the bezel. This is where you can make your connections to the USB 3.0 ports, or plug in a microphone or set of headphones via the HD Audio jacks.
Under the chassis, we see smaller, hard, rubber feet used to support the Alpha, and at the back is a dust filter which has to be unclipped to be removed. There is a mention of a 120mm fan location on the floor of the chassis, but that is not to be found, but we do see screws holding in the HDD cage, making it removable.
