Raijintek Ophion Review: Mini Case with Glass Window

Exterior Impression

The Raijintek Ophion focuses on a modern look. The outer skin is made of brushed aluminium and glass, the body itself of steel. The pages are kept visually as simple as possible. For example, the front, except for the power button and the two USB sockets, is completely smooth. As already mentioned, the case is also very small: it measures 174 millimetres in width, 245 millimetres in height and is 375 millimetres deep; the total volume is thus around 16 litres.

The air flow in the Ophion is vertical, so the air diffusers are at the top and bottom. The upper side is completely covered by a magnetic dust filter, the lower side as far as possible. In both cases, the fan positions are completely covered by the dust filters so that the air flow can be directed from bottom to top and vice versa. In addition to these air diffusers, there are four rubber feet on the underside and access to the power supply unit. This is connected via a pre-assembled extension cable.

This leads to the rear of the housing to which the cold device cable is connected. All other connectors of the installed PC, i.e. those of the mainboard and graphics card, can also be found here. Apart from this, Raijintek has almost completely fitted the rear cover with air diffusers so that an air exchange can also take place here.

Finally, there are the side parts; Raijintek offers the usual package: the three millimetre thick glass panes sit on four rubber-coated threads each and are fixed in place with knurled screws. The glass panes cover the entire sides, one of the two panes also has the manufacturer’s logo engraved on it.

The workmanship of the Raijintek Ophion is largely praiseworthy: the aluminium covers on the sides as well as on the front give the case a very high-quality appearance. All edges are deburred and the coating is applied on the inside to cover the entire surface. Only the rubber decoupling of one of the threads for the window does not fit properly, and the aluminium cover above and below the windows can be bent open – here another screw for fixing would have been nice.
