Raijintek Asterion: Spacious E-ATX Case Reviewed

Insulation and Cooling Options

LED fan in Raijintek Asterion
LED fan in Raijintek Asterion

The two of the three pre-assembled 120mm LED fans unfortunately have a very low efficiency because they are mounted in the front – which is completely closed. So here no air can be let out of the warm housing. Raijintek should have left openings in the front or pre-installed the fans in a more sensible place.

The Raijintek fans are not necessarily among the quietest representatives of their kind, those who do not necessarily need the optics of the white LED lighting should replace the fans. A total of seven fans can be installed, the case offers plenty of space for them.

The housing front and cover provide sufficient space for a maximum of one 360 mm radiator each when water cooling is used. For easy installation, the top can be easily removed and the mesh grille removed. The four rubberized diffusers at the rear provide the passage for cables or water pipes to the outside if an external water cooling system is to be used.

The thick tempered glass of the side parts (up to 5 mm) insulates the fan noise much better than cheap Plexiglas. A small bitter drop in noise insulation are large ventilation holes, mesh grid elements and air slits, from which some running noises from the interior can be heard. Extra insulation mats would do the case good, because compared to a case equipped with insulation mats, it is still relatively noisy.
