Gigabyte 3D AURORA Case

0 thumbs up

The beige box; you had one, I had one, just about everyone and their mother had one. It wasn't that long ago either, that we all had our generic cases on display for no one to notice. Of course, this was back in the day when megahertz ruled, megabytes were plentiful, and a 56K modem was a bragging right. Fast forward a bit, and now we're running on high speed connections, Gigahertz is the word, and Gigabytes don't really seem that big. With all these new technical advances, it was only a matter of time before the boring beige box was given a makeover.

A quick trip to just about any major hardware retailer will quickly reveal just how big the PC enclosure industry has become. Cases can now be found in all different sizes, shapes, and colors. Some trade looks for functionality, and vice versa. Not only are the retailers interested in providing exotic looking cases, but case modding has become a pastime for the computer enthusiast. The creativity of some companies and of our community has paved the way for some interesting designs. Gigabyte, taking its first step into the PC chassis market, has put out a beast of a case which has been designed to be a source of eye candy, as well as a hefty house for your hardware. Today, HotHardware.com will show you the ins and outs of Gigabytes first stab into the case market, the Gigabyte 3D AURORA.
