Raidmax Sagitta Gaming Case Review - Sagitta Exterior
(Page 3 of 6 )
After pulling the case out, one of the first things you'll notice is the smooth paint job. I saw no imperfections in it, so it was well taken care of at the factory and shipping center. Nothing was scratched or scuffed at all. The picture above is the right panel reflecting its packaging. It has a very nice silver finish, and the paint is very reflective and impressive. I definitely won't be throwing these side panels around when I work on the system.
You'll notice the Sagitta gaming case has a very unique style, which is something you definitely want if you're buying a flashy enclosure. It has a branded side panel window, an included side fan, and a cool front bezel.
The whole front is plastic, which Raidmax uses creatively in combination with lights. We'll take a look at that in a minute. The case door stays shut with a magnet. At the bottom there, you can see the dark spaces between the pieces of red plastic. That is a black mesh which allows a lot of air to flow into the case.
Here's a view of the front with the case door open. Notice that the big power and small reset button are inside, as well as audio and USB connectors. Some cases have these on the side of the case instead of behind the door. With all that stuff hidden, you need to open the door whenever you want to turn on the PC or plug anything into the audio or USB jacks. Of course, hiding those jacks cleans up the appearance of the front and side of the case.
Here is a view of the side panel with the system inside. The window is pretty big, and you can see everything in there. That side fan sits right over the processor heatsink to help move air, and it has an included blue light that turns the whole interior of the case blue in the dark.
And finally, here's a shot of the front with the system turned on. The blue lights glow whenever the system is powered up, which looks super cool in the dark with the red plastic creating a shadow against it.
The hard drive activity light is actually inside that red plastic cover, so the whole red piece starts flashing red when the disk is being accessed. Having the bottom front of the case light up blue and flash red is a very cool idea, and it gives the Sagitta a unique design feel. Later I'll show pictures of the case lit up in the dark with the red light flashing, but I'm moving onto the internals of the case first.
