Conclusion

While the Raidmax Horus case has an overall great design and the build quality is superb despite being a mid-level budget case. The case is only a mid tower but it has some great features such as support for SSDs, support for 360mm graphics cards, multiple radiator support in the rear, top and front as well as external support. We really appreciated how well thought out the case handles hiding those hideous cables coming out of the back of the case while supporting external water cooling systems.

While we can’t compare a budget case with a high end chassis, there are a few things we saw which need improvement, even for a budget-case. For example, it would be great if they added more cable management routes to the motherboard and protected them with grommets. Another huge concern for cleanliness purposes is that they should add expansion covers that are reusable.

Many of the ideas in this case offer a great starting point for a mid-level or budget build case without going overboard. At the time of the review, the Raidmax Horus is currently available with a price tag of just $49.99 USD with $7.88 shipping at newegg.com and a warranty of 1 year. The case has some great features, despite this rock-bottom price. Despite the smaller issues we found, most of the features and aesthetics included with this case are exceptional. Taking everything into account, the Raidmax Horus earns the PureOverclock Great Hardware Award.
