   Largely thanks to the somewhat recent technological advancements people can now experience the features and performance only found in full sized ATX/EATX/XL-ATX mainboards up until today with the much smaller mITX and mATX ones. None of us here are much into such solutions since we prefer to use full towers for a number of reasons but we also can't deny that for people who want a system that doesn't take much space such mainboards are the obvious choice. Now in the past when people chose such a mainboard they normally paired it with a relatively small HTPC case in order to save both space and money but nowadays with many people pairing such mainboards with long high-end graphics cards (even mGPU ones) getting a small HTPC case is really not the way to go. Raidmax however decided to take things a bit further with their brand new Horus MX Water Cooling Gaming Micro ATX tower which we have here with us today.

 

   Raidmax was founded in 1988 with the mission of providing the best solutions: specifically, meeting your requirements for innovative designs, excellent performance and quality products. In early 2003, Raidmax was the first to debut the design "Scorpio": an alien eye shape on its general front panel. At the time, it was the best ever hit in the gaming case business and almost every factory had owned at least one similar design back in China. Two years later, Raidmax released another cutting-edge design, Samurai, and people who had seen the case itself instantly fell in love. After numerous global feedback, Raidmax is known all over the world. It is said our company is not only a case designer but also the perfect budget keeper. You can simply spend a little but you receive higher quality than you expect. It has been more than 10 years since Raidmax began its work on its unique product lines and market position. The name of Raidmax is synonymous to gaming design and budget cases. In the United States, Raidmax is considered to be the best second tier brand; in Asia, it is said that only Raidmax can offer the budget cases with great designs; in Europe, with almost no brand management, Raidmax' followers are still showing their loyal support in many ways.

 

   Although the Horus MX is only compatible with Mini ITX and Micro ATX boards you may not be able to tell it apart from a normal midi tower at least not until you turn it around or open the right side panel. Size is actually the one thing that helps the Horus MX stand out from the crowd since Raidmax made use of that and fitted it with features one simply can't find in smaller cases. So the Horus MX comes ready with room for three 5.25" optical drives, three 2.5/3.5" drives, five PCI cards (up to 390mm long), normal ATX sized power supply unit and six 120mm fans (or 4x120mm and one 140mm fan or one 280mm radiator at the top). Of course design and quality always matter when you're looking to get a PC tower but in this particular case size is something that also matters quite a bit so let’s take a closer look at the Raidmax Horus MX.
