RaidMax Virgo Case 

Manufacturer: RaidMax
Supplied by: RaidMax
Street Price: $60.00

Introduction

So we all just love those top of the line case like the Lian-Li V1000 and Thermaltake's new Shark case, but we don't all have the spare change that is required to fund these investments. I for one, would rather spend my already tight budget on something much more important, such as BEER. But you still need a case to put your machine in. Also, it has to look better than that plain old beige box that came out sometime in the stone age. There are cases out there that won't break the bank and today RaidMax shows off their Virgo case with is pretty nicely priced.

Specifications:

  • Construction: Steel w/plastic front bezel

  • Observed Weight: ~19.5lbs

  • Observed Dimensions: 19.5" (D) x 16.5" (H) x 8" (W)

  • Drive Bays: (4) 5.25"
                    (2) 3.5" Exposed
                    (4) 3.5" Internal

  • Included 420W PSU

  • Large front temperature display

  • Front Access ports: (2) USB 2.0, audio

  • Window side panel w/80mm intake fan

  • Included 120mm exhaust fan

  • Temperature controlled fans

The front of the case is always a good place to start. As you can see, the Virgo displays a basic design similar in appearance to the Chenming/Chieftec cases. The most notable difference is the large temperature display panel on the front.

 

Just below the temperature readout is the HDD activity LED. The size of the readout panel should make it very easy to see.
