Sometimes, even in a world of ever smaller components, size does matter. If your workhorse computer needs to be a Clydesdale, then one of those Shetland pony mid-sized towers just won't do, and Gigabyte knows that.

Three self-illuminated fans (one 120mm front panel and two 120mm rear panel) help keep it cool, as do the transparent acrylic/steel mesh ventilation side panels. And everything is designed to make assembly faster and easier for your technical staff (or you, if you build your own): one-touch lockable latch on the detachable side panel, tool-less device assembly, seven hassle-free expansion slots, and front and side panel locks offer physical security. Compatible with ATX and mini-ATX motherboards, with front-panel ports located in the middle of the panel, and plenty of drive space.

Got some heavy-duty work ahead of you? Then maybe this heavy-duty workhorse is what you need. Check it out for yourself!

  • newegg 1.0mm Aluminum Body Featuring a 1.0mm thick aluminum body with strengthened nickel-coated rear plate, the Gigabyte 3D Aurora reaches the balance between chassis stiffness and heat dissipation.
  • newegg Customizable Light Beam Projector The high-illumination blue fan LEDs and customizable light beam projector adds eye-catching fun and aesthetic appeal to the Gigabyte 3D Aurora.

5 out of 5 eggsPLenty of room for 2 GTX 295 or even 3 280's!

Pros: If you can fit your keyboard inside you pc case then you got plenty of room for anything you want to put in. I had a small tower and my GTX+ could barly fit like half a milmeter from hard drive to back of video card. My new case could hold my old case inside of it. Its set up for liquid cooling witch is great. ANd lots of room, cant think of any flaws. 2 high security locks to keep cd drives safe and a lock on the side panel. All in all great tower!

Cons: The only cons I can think of is the sideways hard drive mounts, I like it but somepeople might not. Alsot the plugs for the front panel usbs, and light swithch might not be combatable with some motherboards, so make sure you buy a good board with lots of hearders for audio and usb and power hookups. I got the MSI P7N and it was just enough hookups on it for the tower. So prob any board less than that one might not work with all the stuff on the front. ALso you migh want to replace the fans that come with the tower, 1 of the ones in the back seems to have a slight wobble, but that isnt much like 15 bucks or so, other than that its a strong excellent looking tower that will be good for all the upgrades for the next few years to come.

Other Thoughts: sweet tower!

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing case

Pros: This case is amazing. There is tons of room in it to fit anything you'd need (Like the new GTX cards from nvidia). Putting in your 3.2 and 5.25 drives takes seconds. The airflow keeps everything nice and cool.

Cons: I'm not a preson that likes LCDs and bright lights, and there are *a lot* of them on this rig. Thankfully the ones on the fan can be taken care of with wire cutters, and the others can pulled from their sockers using a little ingenuity.

Other Thoughts: Not much to say, it's an awesome case especially for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I love the size of the case and the expansions bays are plentiful. The fold up feet allow you to save a little desk room on the sides if you are like me and have bought a horrible computer desk that wont let you put anything under it. The lights aren't annoying at all and the customizable light screen at the bottom of the front of the case allows a little tweaking that I had never thought of.

Cons: As with most, and if not all cases right now, there is barely enough room for my GTX 295 to fit from back to front of the motherboard due to the hard drive bays. I would like to have another 2 inches to allow comfortable spacing to access the SATA ports that the card covers up. I am not sure how I will fit a second card in here, but I will!

Other Thoughts: Really cant beat this case for the price. I am not a fan of the glowing cases, but the lights here are not very noticeable when you dont want them to be.

5 out of 5 eggsNice! ^_^

Pros: This case is very neat! It's my first full tower gigabyte case and all i can say is wow @_@. Cables are neatly placed nice lead fan lights all in all I have no complaints about this case. If you want to have a case that's good for the budget and has everything you need as a gamer or pc builder... you got to buy this. Simple, sturdy, and a great bang for the buck!

Cons: No cons whatsoever... Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: What you see in the photos of newegg is what you get. Go newegg! You guys ROCK!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGIGABYTE 3D AURORA GZ-FSCA1-ANB Black Aluminum Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very nice case. Sturdy yet light weight construction. Ample room for any future upgrades you may need to do. The case offers great airflow and looks very nice. The black solid aluminum face with blue LED projector on the front panel are a nice added touch by Gigabyte. This is my first case from Gigabyte, and I am very happy with it. It compliments there high quality motherboards nicely.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have plenty of room on your desk or under the computer desk for this. It's a monster.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: Very nicely manufactured case. What impressed me was the front door and how thick the aluminum actually was. Also the screw less mounting bays for HDD and external 3.5 and 5.25 also worked flawlessly.

Cons: The cables to attach the front audio, usb and firewire are on the verge on being to short.
Had to pull them diagonally to make the connection points on my abit p35 pro mobo. It works but it would be nicer to allow them to go around the mobo in case one would like to add add-on cards.

Other Thoughts: Nice with the premade holes for watercooling.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: Solid construction: I've owned this case for well over a year now and, unlike my cheap last case, is holding up nicely. Now, any case can pull that off if it is just left under a desk for it's life, but mine has gone places. LAN parties come every few weeks.
Very roomy: There is plenty of room in this case, all the drive bays, although 2 are unused, are very nice to have. All 4 of the hard drive, I guess you can call them slots, have been filled. Perfect.
Maintenance: The drives require no tools to install, so if one needs replacing or if you are just cleaning the dust out, its easy to take everything out and then put it all back.

Cons: As I said in the pros, this case goes places. As a result, the feet (primarily the front pair) like to fall off when I'm carrying it. The fans are, as other reviewers said, are weak so getting some new ones would be a good idea. The side window/grate is a dust magnet. Maybe thats a good thing as its keeping the dust out, but it will need cleaning frequently. There really is no good way to manage cables with this case. PSU was a little annoying to install, one screw not used...

Other Thoughts: Other than the few cons, this is a quality case. The only thing I would have loved, would be a cable management system. But, I'd defiantly recommend this case!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, solid case

Pros: Excellent case, solid construct, plenty of space, nice lights, easy access to front panel connections/buttons

Cons: Fans are a bit weak but will get the job done just fine as long as you aren't pumping out a ton of heat. On the other hand, they are very quiet.

Other Thoughts: if the price is right, buy it
