Raijintek Asterion Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Raijintek has created many incredible chassis over the last few years, and while I fell in love with and have made several systems for people with the lovely Styx micro-ATX and the Metis mini-ITX chassis, Raijintek are about to take things to the next level. Their latest chassis, the Asterion, comes in an E-ATX mid-tower form factor, but it retains that lovely aluminium front panel design that we loved so much about the Metis and Styx. Of course, they’ve scaled up the chassis for high-end hardware, and to add the perfect complement to all that brushed aluminium, they’ve slapped a couple of tempered glass panels on their too! Droooooool.

“ASTERION – The new RAIJINTEK E-ATX aluminum series. The ASTERION series supports up to E-ATX motherboards, with a maximum of seven fans, including 3×120mm fan options (2pcs 12025 O-Type White LED fan are pre-installed) at the front, 3×120mm fan options on the top and pre-installed 12025 O-Type White LED fan (140mm fan option) at the rear. Additionally, the ASTERION series supports 240/280/360mm radiators in the front and top, and also includes features such as tool-free drive installation, max CPU cooler height up to 180mm, max VGA length up to 340mm and regular ATX/EPS PSU compatibility.”

As you can see from the features below, the Asterion offers up support for E-ATX motherboards, up to 7 fans, 6 hard drives, large CPU air coolers, extra long 340mm GPUs, and 240/280/360mm radiators in the front, 240/280/360mm in the top, as well as a 120/140mm in the rear! But enough of the lovely bullet point lists, let’s get it out of the box and take a look for ourselves.
