BitFenix AEGIS Chassis (Core and ICON Editions) Unleashed – For mATX and mini-ITX Systems

BitFenix recently released their latest mid tower chassis supporting Micro ATX and Mini-ITX form factor – the BitFenix AEGIS. The new BitFenix AEGIS is focused on the cooling performance of the system, while maintaining that sleek look and design. It doesn’t have any external front bay drives and it features a larger ICON logo display we previously saw on the Pandora. There is also a CORE version that doesn’t have an ICON Display. It was also designed with custom water cooling in mid. Check out the rest of its features and specifications below. The video below will pretty much show you the capabilities of the BitFenix AEGIS.

BitFenix AEGIS Features

The BitFenix AEGIS features a closed front panel that extends far from the case body giving it enough room for the front air intake. However the front panel features a lager ICON Display compared to what we saw in Pandora. The ICON display is connected directly to the motherboard via USB header. There is also a CORE version of the AEGIS. It’s basically the same, but it doesn’t have the ICON Display feature. It available in black, white and 3 vibrant colors (red, blue, yellow) and supports an impressive amount of fans and radiators: up to 8x 120mm fans or 5x 140mm fans, dual 280 radiators and even a dual 360 build is possible with slim rads.

BitFenix AEGIS Features

The 3 tool free storage cages are modular and can be moved around or taken out altogether, in which case there is still a hidden 2.5″ slot behind the PSU and a “show off” 2.5″ slot next to the motherboard tray. Besides some nice dust filters on the top, front and bottom, it comes with a built in fan controller, a stylish PSU cover, a rubber padded pump bracket and last but not least a neat Reservoir bracket, that let users attach a reservoir or pump/res combo to a 240 or 360 radiator.

I think BitFenix has really done it this time with the AEGIS, but I would like to see another version that could accommodate full ATX motherboards in the feature. BitFenix hasn’t disclosed the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the AEGIS yet, but it’s expected that it will become available in the following weeks to come.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
