Design, toughened glass side windows and lights in BitFenix Aurora
Incentive and self-claim when BitFenix Aurora it was obvious to make a full-fledged housing which integrates as a multimedia center or as a gaming PC optically perfectly into its surroundings. With a white BitFenix Aurora on the Lowboard - or next to the desk - each room tastefully decorated is even finer, more elegant, yet distinctive. The designers have this primarily achieved through the two side panels, which are each made of a piece of tempered glass and the surface is very dark tinted. In combination with the white SofTouch surface, this results in an optical and haptic pleasure, which has no equal in this price range.
The way tools removable side panels allow despite strong tint an insight to the built-up inside the hardware, is there especially when working with a LED lighting. Front and lid waive the Aurora contrast to a straight line and are designed to be relatively peppy. This allows the mesh inserts, but a better air supply or air exhaust in the housing or out of the housing.

Thanks to the relatively large size of the midi tower but can also obstruct an effective water cooling. An up to 280 mm large radiator has its place either at the front or in the lid. If necessary, even has enough room for two at the same time built 280 mm radiators. To have no problems with the planning of the watercooling circuit, this version of the Aurora midi tower also contains a handy holder for a reservoir. This holder can be quickly and easily installed with normal screws or thumbscrews. Note here is that in the case of installing a pump on the lower HDD cage, the space for graphics cards in the lower PCIe slots is greatly restricted. In one of the top slots, however, fits up to a 44 cm long graphics cards at the pump installed.

A total of four slots for 3.5-inch disks are located in the Aurora. For two HDD cages are installed, which can accommodate two of these disks. If necessary, these can even be removed to make room for other components. A 2.5-inch SSD can be mounted on the front of the motherboard tray and optimally illuminated by the RGB LED lighting. Two other 2.5-inch disk can also be mounted on the back of the motherboard tray, which incidentally plenty (20-25 mm) is for meaningful cable management.
