Case Build & Finished Product
The front of the Sigma has nothing changed about it from the time we took it out of the box till now. While this uniquely stylized front panel may be odd to some, we applaud Raidmax for stepping out of the box and giving us something attractive yet unique enough to know what chassis this is at just a glance.
There is enough room above the motherboard for water cooling without conflict, and we see that the card is not aging all that much. The PSU cover and wire management keeps the interior clean and unfettered, and with the easy access to the front of the chassis, mounting the AIO could not have been easier.
The PSU sat right in place to be screwed into the chassis, and we did not have to fight the expansion slots or the cover to get the card mounted. The dust shield also snapped right into place, leaving is with no issues during the build process.
We did populate one of the two SSD trays at the left and found ample room to wire the system alongside it. We were able to make all three Molex connections at the bottom of the chassis and hid the fan lead under the 8-pin. We did not have to remove the HDD cage to fit the PSU, and there is access to the bays through the wires.
All back together now, the Sigma is ready to do what it does. The tint of the tempered glass is slight and does not hinder the view inside of the chassis without an internal source of light.
Once powered, we hear only 28 dB of noise coming out the back of the Sigma, and there is quite the light show going on. Not only does our video card and AIO light up, but the rear fan, the Raidmax plaque on the PSU cover, even the Raidmax name and honeycomb pattern surrounding it under the front bezel all takes the Sigma a step above many other cases.
