AZZA Helios 910R ATX Mid Tower Case Review

Introducing the Helios 910R

AZZA Helios 910R

All the computers in my house are either Dells or HPs except for one.  This one is a special computer that I built about two years ago and have been thinking about upgrading only recently.  Since I don’t have money to run out and purchase all the parts at once, I decided to build it one piece at a time, starting with the case.  The chosen case for my project is the AZZA Helios 910R.  With an ultra-efficient cooling system, an awesome black on red color scheme, lots of room for drive expansion and a price starting at $79.99, this case has promising future for any PC enthusiast.

Reading through the features list, I found a couple of things that I really liked.  My old box had thumb screws which allowed me easy access inside the computer.  This case also has thumb screws for easy access along with extra thumb screws to mount internal hard drives and optical drives.  Not that these devices get removed all that often, but I hate looking for a screwdriver when I do need to remove these parts from the case.  Thumb screws just make it easier and less time consuming. 

Another item that I thought would be a benefit is the ability to route cables behind the motherboard tray.  I never liked the way my last box looked with its clear side panel and all kinds of cables running back and forth.  It just made the inside of the case look cluttered, so why have a clear side panel?  Even though the Helios 910R doesn’t have a clear side panel, it will be nicer to have a less cluttered inside when I do open the side panel.

Let’s look at the specs.
