RAIDMAX Helios ATX-819WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It actually looks cool and good concept once I fought my way through setting it up.

Cons: It's built very cheaply. The front fans snap in on some tabs and are hard to put in. I don't think they take into account heat fluctuations, the stupid cheap plastic tabs will get loose and eventually the fans will either move or rattle.

They only included ONE fan, in the front, that puts out almost no air. They do NOT include a rear fan which is very standard.

There were ends of pop rivets rattling around in the bottom, I had to take an extra few minutes and make sure there were no broken rivets anywhere because of that. Poor QA there, and looks shoddy to leave work waste rattling around.

The top fan mount has two screws and 4 plastic tabs holding it on. They did NOT INCLUDE THE NECESSARY LONG SCREWS TO ATTACH THE FAN. Unforgivable omission. Nobody has the proper type and size of shoulder bolts laying around to put that fan in. I wound up using small metal screws and turning them in from the side just at the mount point because I didn't have a 1 1/8" screw to go thru both fan holes like they have it set up.. Had to mess with that for 15 minutes longer than I needed to hunting up the right screws.

The drive cage nearly bent when I put just a little bit of pressure on it, very very cheaply made.

The standoffs are non-standard, small fine threaded screws go in them. Those are included but I was expecting to just grab my pack of motherboard screws and put it right on, instead I had to sort through theirs and figure out that the really small screws go in the standoffs.

Even their own Raidmax logo insignia that they have glued on the front is glued on there crooked.

This case is not worth the normal price they have on it today, and not worth the twenty five after rebate I paid.

Another company with a fairly good name putting something out REALLY REALLY cheap to make a fast buck.

Take a pass on this one people, you will be disappointed.

Raidmax needs to find out why there's like...ZERO...quality control for this case. I'm appalled at the lack of quality and lack of rear fan and stupid cheap plastic snap-on fan mounts, but mostly that they couldn't even include the proper screws to mount the top fan.

Other Thoughts: I said it all above.
