The Raidmax Aeolus has some good ideas, but they are poorly executed. The best thing going for this case is its looks, rather than its functionality. I do like the somewhat tool-free design of this case as well as the drive flexibility, but the overall functionality of these options isn’t up to par to other cases.
Summary: The stylish and
futuristic look of the Aeolus is second only to the functionality and features
this computer case comes bundled with. The cool lighted look will make this
chassis a great centerpiece for any desk or computer room. With a huge interior
and many amenities, this case is a great chassis for many computer enthusiasts.
The Aeolus is a great buy and would be a suitable outer shell for any gaming
Summary: The Raidmax Aeolus Case is an affordable mid-tower case with lots of great features. Aeolus is the god of the winds, so this case has lots of ventation provided by 4 120mm fans and more optional ones can be installed. Also, video cards up to 430mm in length can be installed.
Summary: Raidmax has upped their game with the Aeolus, many improvements over recent additions are well received. Moving the power supply down to the bottom of the case and including a removable dust filter is a very nice improvement. The four included fans are great, but giving additional options like the side panel fan is even better. This allows the user to customize the case to their liking.
Pros: Four included 120 mm fans, Tool-less installation for both hard drives and optical drives, Can fit the largest of video cards, Side window with available 120 mm fan mounting option, Removable HDD bay, Removable dust filter for power supply, Bottom mounted power supply
Cons: Exterior casing may be obscure for some, Limited space for large power supplies, Difficult use of provided cable management cut-away holes
