But first the falls again very successful design eye. The front is dominated by black high-gloss, surrounded by bright blue of the front panel. The classic style is skillfully BitFenix against an aggressive touch in the form of two air intakes at the bottom. The view from the side reveals that additional black mesh areas are recessed front that allow the installable in the front fans to draw in fresh air. While slightly more expensive standard version of the Aegis a "ICON" called, 2.8-inch LCD (240 x 320 pixels) features, which can display any graphics at the core version presented here only a silver BitFenix is logo is included, which the customer can optionally install yourself.
The beautiful blue continues with the lid and the side panels, the left side panel has also a very large window, which granted generous view into the interior. Here most of it is painted black, which gives a great contrast to the blue. The power supply lying down is hidden by a cover (PSU cover), this can also take out. Prior to that, one of two hard drive cages sitting for two 3.5-inch HDDs. If you need for the power supply more than 16 cm, you can attach to the front towards this continue. If you still do not meet the then vacant 18 cm, one renounces just completely out and then come even the longest PSUs with 22 cm in length can be as.
At least one of the second, also removable HDD cage is still available up front, which again takes two big hard drives without tools. He hangs under a separate tool-less cage for two 2.5-inch drives, and of course can also be this small cage take out either, for example, if the user still wants to create more space for fans or heat exchangers. Another SSD can also centrally mounted near the front, where they proudly presents itself through the window to the outside, while still a flash drive hidden parallel to the motherboard tray can be stowed behind the power supply.
The Aegis has very good ventilation opportunities, especially for a housing beyond full-tower measurements, designed for small or mATX- mITX boards. And for the veterans of BitFenix it is a matter of course that then correspondingly large dust filter hold all relevant items: The entire front and bottom of each with a large, magnetically adhering filters are covered and let you cover yourself with a quick push solve. Top and front either two 140 mm fans or three 120mm fans can be installed in each case, a black tail rotor 120 is already waiting at the factory to its use.
About a fan controller button above the I / O panel of the blue-black BitFenix Aegis Core up to four 3-pin fan 12, 7 or 5 volts can be regulated. If you would like to build a powerful water cooling in Aegis, we here has all the possibilities to do so because the case takes on both the front and in the cover up to 360-240 triple or dual radiators, which according to forgo drives is. A reservoir can be docked with the supplied Terms mount either directly to a heat exchanger or front mount on the base. But there can also be decoupled pump seat to be set. A low-profile pump but can be put directly on the lower HDD cage.
