Huntkey H201 Aeolus
Huntkey is still pretty unknown as a case manufacturer. Its H201 Aeolus is a typical representative of Asian mid-tower cases, with a lot of steel and plastic used. The stable frame is well-built and does not show any weaknesses. Inside the heavyweight unit—the H201 weighs 19 kg—you will find a lot of space for hardware and drives. The hard drive cage can be easily removed, and hard drives can be installed outside of the case. It’s nice to see that it has four USB ports on the front panel, an area that often gets congested with attached peripherals. The three pre-installed 120 mm fans not only move a lot of air, they also create a great deal of noise.
The special feature of this mid-tower is that it is both ATX- and BTX- compatible (though this will only benefit folks with existing BTX systems, since the form factor is no longer being developed). By default it is laid out for ATX motherboards, but the H201 can easily be modified to the BTX form factor. All the parts necessary for this are shipped with the case.
Huntkey’s biggest challenge with this one is availability—currently it seems that there are no vendors carrying the chassis in North America.
