Installation & Configuration
Raidmax adds four hook and loop cable straps to its basic screw-type installation kit. The extra standoff supplied with the screws fits the one vacant position on the motherboard tray.
Lacking any powered accessories such as LED controllers, the Delta front-panel cable kit has only power and hard drive LED, power and reset switch, HD Audio and USB 3.0 leads. The fan is wired to both 3-pin and ATA-style power connectors.
All of our ATX components fit with room to spare, leaving enough space in front of the graphics card to hold some fairly elaborate cooling components.
Anyone who didn’t want to pay the extra $10 to get the LED-lit Alpha might find the Delta’s less-flashy appearance more appropriate.
We’re using our overclocked Core i7-5930K test platform to compare the Raidmax Delta to its slightly more advanced sibling, as well as two of the most closely priced competing models from Zalman and Cooler Master. Methods and settings have been retained for two years to allow you to compare the results from other case reviews to those included in the charts.

Great case for $59Reply
Seems harsh to evaluate a case with room for 8 fans using just the 1 it came with.Reply
I was understanding of this case until I saw the crappy PSU dust filter, no cut out for the cables for the second drive on top of the PSU, plastic case feet, and only 2 USB front ports.Reply
For ATX cases, 4 ports are a minimum
