The Raijintek Styx is a housing for Micro-ATX systems, which not only wants to shine with compactness, but also optics. And although the Styx has compact dimensions, there’s plenty of room in the case.
Like every case, the Styx comes in a brown cardboard box. The housing is secured by two styrofoam elements. Included in the delivery is a short manual, which is actually only important if the number of hard disks to be fully exploited. Inside the housing is the standard mounting material such as screws.
After unpacking, the high quality of the housing is immediately noticeable. Our test object comes in the colour black, but there are also the colours silver, red, green, gold, blue and white. This means that no wishes remain unfulfilled, even with colour-coordinated systems. The housings are also optionally available with a built-in viewing window.
Basically, the Raijintek Styx consists of two different materials. The basic frame is made of steel and the front, lid and side walls are made of aluminium panels. The brushed aluminium makes the case particularly high-quality. Although the Styx only has dimensions of 210 x 335 x 360 millimeters (W x H x D), a surprising amount should fit into the case. In addition to a large CPU cooler, a large graphics card, two 3.5-inch HDDs and two 2.5-inch SSDs/HDDs should also be able to get their place. There’s even room for a radiator for water cooling. And even if the housing is directed at Micro-ATX systems, Mini-ITX boards can of course be installed.
