Raijintek Ophion M Evo Case Review

How Much Does it Cost?

The Raijintek Ophion M Evo micro-ATX is available new with a price around £140-160. That’s quite a lot of money, I know, but keep in mind the case is made from loads of lovely premium quality black brushed aluminium, and that PCIe riser cable is pre-installed too, which certainly adds a lot to the price. It’s a premium priced product and the quality reflects that. There are few variants too, such as a slightly smaller mini-ITX model, and even one without windows, all of which look rather fantastic. They even sell the metal side panels separately should you need them later! You can check for up to date stock and price from their Amazon store here.

Overview

There’s a lot to love about this case, and it’s clear that Raijintek has been listening to their customers over the years. This design is nothing new from this as a brand… well, sort of. It still looks like a few other products in their range, but it’s a more refined evolution of that design. The interior layout is particularly clever, offering all kinds of ways of integrating custom cooling hardware, more storage, or just having a more refined cable routing setup.

Lightweight

What surprised me the most about this case was the overall weight of it. It’s very light, but that shouldn’t be surprising given it’s made from aluminium. Furthermore, even the tempered glass is a little thinner than it is on most PC cases. I actually think it feels a little fragile as a result, but it’s really not, and everything here is made to a very high standard.

Quality

The build quality shows in end product though, and the black brushed finish of the metalwork, and those lovely trimmed silver edges really gives it a premium quality look and feel. I like that the side panels are all tool free, and you get manetic dust filters too, so the whole thign is very easy to work with and maintain.

Hardware

Compatability is impressive on this case, with room for even the biggest of graphics cards, and with the riser cable and bracket pre-installed, they’re super easy to install too. There’s room for up to an mATX motherboard, and you can get a pretty decent cooling setup in here, be that air or liquid. There are plenty of storage mounts, and most impressively for a case this size, a huge PSU can be installed and doesn’t cause any compatability issues.

Should I Buy One?

There’s no shortage of small and affordable PC cases these days, but it’s clear that with a little extra investment, you can get a lot in return. The aluminium construction, lightweight design, stylish and modular design, as well as that pre-installed riser cable make the Ophion an extremely tempting option for those wanting a high-performance build in a desktop friendly form factor.
