Raidmax Raptor Case Review

Conclusion

Overall the design is nice, it looks great and any gamer would be happy with the looks.  Some parts of it are flimsy and could break off or be damaged with a lot of moving around, but with proper care it could be avoided.  There is plenty of space for optical drives, hard drives and expansion cards, and the inside is roomy enough to accommodate a multitude of cables and wires, many of them routed through the back of the case, and still have lots of room for airflow.

The Raptor provides access to the cooling unit from the front and back without having to remove the mainboard from the chassis, which makes it very desirable for those of us who remove cooling systems frequently.  All in all, it’s a good case with a few issues, but worthy of any gamer’s hardware.

A little pricey at sub-$100 for what it is, and the flimsy plastic makes it less appealing at this price.
