Raijintek Coeus Evo Review – Glass Midi Tower with USB Type C

The Raijintek Coeus Evo TC Midi-Tower has everything you’d expect from a case today. In addition to the generous use of tempered glass, four 120 mm fans with LED lighting were fitted to the case in this version. The front panel has a “Type C” USB port – however, it must be connected to the back panel of the motherboard via a cable if the motherboard does not have a USB port on the PCB. The biggest weak point is the small distance between the chassis and the glass, so that the airflow is not optimal.

Design

The design is quite pleasing with the use of tempered glass, even if this of course depends on the viewer. I would deduct points for the rubberized “carrying handles”. Since the tower stands on two identical feet, these were probably added for a uniform look. The tower is solid and heavy. At first glance, the tower doesn’t look as long as other midi towers, but is slightly higher than other cases in this segment. This is mainly due to the fact that the tower offers a lot of space for radiators in the lid. This means that even large RAM kits can be installed without these being concealed or even completely preventing the installation of a heat exchanger.

What I personally don’t like are the fans – visually this class looks good and the white lighting makes a good impression. However, they are supplied with power via Molex and have an on/off switch. A possibility to use this option by button on the housing or by software would be much more practical.

Another drawback of the Raijintek Coeus Evo is the small distance between the tempered glass in the front and the top, so that air can hardly be drawn in. With a trip to the hardware store you can probably solve this with the help of spacers and new thumbscrews, but the otherwise very good tower will be devalued in my opinion.

Scope of Delivery

The well packaged tower comes with relatively ample accessories: In addition to four thumbscrews for the power supply and various other screws, five self-adhesive cable ties that can be attached as required and a motherboard alarm “loudspeaker” are included.
