Raidmax Raptor Case Review

Raidmax Raptor Case Review
Page Jump:

So here we are.  A new year, a new set of resolutions, and a new case up for review.  I’ve been off for a few weeks for the holidays and family stuff, but now I’m back and ready for action.  I was excited to get this case review going, mostly because everyone knows I love cases, but partly because the boss man has been breathing down my throat to get something done.  So here it is; the Raidmax Raptor chassis review.

Raidmax has been making some pretty nice cases here lately.  I was monitoring their website for a while, and when I saw the Raptor I immediately jumped at the chance to review it.  For no other reason than because I loved the available red-on-black color scheme.  They have a blue one as well, but who cares?  Red is bestial.  It’s hardcore.  It’s the fires of freaking Mordor!  Here’s some info on the chassis before I start tearing it down:
