BitFenix Aegis Micro-ATX Chassis Review

Complete System


I’ve gone a little further than usual with this build, as it’s certainly a chassis that demands a little extra love and attention. I’ve kitted it out with the gorgeous BitFenix FURY PSU, which comes with pre-sleeved cables, helping improve the overall aesthetics; fairly important for a chassis with a such a large side panel window. While I didn’t really need to, I’ve stripped out the two main hard drive bays for demonstration purposes, although I have made great use of the rear mount for our Crucial SSD; it looks great having it on show like that.

Since this chassis only comes with a single 120mm fan pre-installed in the rear, you will have to invest in extra fans or cooling solutions. I’ve installed a pair of 140mm red LED BitFenix fans to help complete the build.

Overall, this is a fantastic looking build with great cable management and I can see this chassis proving very popular with gamers. I thought the bright red may look a little garish, but it compliments our components nicely and vice versa.

Cable management is holding up really well, despite the fact that we’ve got a lot of chunky cables installed, so you should have no issues achieving a great looking build.

All panels back in place; looking good!

Dim the lights, fire up those lovely red LED fans. That side panel really is crystal clear, so there’s a lot of motivation to have a tidy build, as it’ll all be on show.

It’s nice and clear, even if photos don’t indicate it that well. You can upload custom images to it via a small desktop app, much like we did in the BitFenix Pandora review.
