    HEXUS.reviews :: Thermaltake Aguila chassis

    Thermaltake’s Aguila is a solid chassis, providing plenty of space inside and an optional extras list a BMW dealer would be proud of. The kit that came with our sample was comprehensive enough and the window was a welcome extra.

    Given the price of the Aguila seems to have settled around £75 including window, it’s not the cheapest chassis, but considering what it has, it does well.

    nice front, nice mesh.
    I wonder why it has a bloooo led fan at the rear,and an orange bladed fan at the front? It's one of those things that loses style marks for me, but as it's so easy to sort, it's irrelevent really I guess.

    Nice cross brace, good idea. Good value too I think

    When I first saw that case I thought it looked more like a Hi-Fi speaker than a case (at least from the front profile). It is starting to grow on me, but I think I still prefer the Armour.

    Zak,

    The front fan is behind the aluminium door, so whilst a blue LED model would have been good it wouldn't have made THAT much difference.

    As it is the one at the back does a good job of putting a blue glow through the front mesh.

    Was impressed with the overall thought and build quality on this one...

    Matt.

    Looks like it's based on the same chassis as the Armour JNR. that gap by the hard drive cage is designed for a Raptor X, so you can see it spinning away.

    The mesh and foam in the drive bays is very good at keeping dust out, as the front of my Armour shows far too well, after a week or so.

    The steel TT cases are practically unbreakable btw.

    Indeed you can fit a Raptor in there, but guess what?

    Its on the options list
