AZZA Helios 910R – Final Thoughts and Conclusion
The only fault I could find in the AZZA Helios 910R was how the rear fan had a 4 pin molex connector instead of a 3 pin so I could not plug it onto my motherboard. As a colleague pointed out, there is a reason for using the large connector over the smaller one that plugs into the motherboard. Older motherboards can not supply enough power to run the fan properly, so the 4 pin molex connector forces the user to use a power supply which can support the fan. I can totally agree with that decision, but would prefer if the cable to the fan was long enough to be routed to a place where the connector will be hidden.
What I liked about the AZZA Helios 910R was how quiet it is when running. Considering it has four fans running to keep it cool, unlike my Dell Power Edge which has four fans and sounds like it is going to take flight when it starts up, this case is pretty quiet. While I was unable to test AZZA’s boast of superior thermal management, I do believe this system is right on track with the integration of two cool air intake fans and two exhaust fans.
The entire case is quite sturdy and the black on bright red color scheme is quite nice, especially when it is running and the LED lights from the side panel and front can be seen. However, I think the best thing about this case is the price. This case retail’s for $79.99, but I have seen it even lower from some retailers, which is a steal for such a quality gaming case as this.
Legit Bottom Line: The Helios 910R is a quality case with an excellent thermal management design that any PC enthusiast/gamer is looking for. The fact that this case won’t break the bank only makes it more attractive.
