The Bitfenix Aurora packs dual 280 mm liquid-cooling support, a bracket for reservoirs, an Aura-compatible RGB controller, and glass side panels . We take it for a spin to make it glow in all its colors and take a closer look to see if it manages to shine even in deep space.

"One noteworthy mention are the flat cables BitFenix uses for both the USB 2.0 and audio, as these are usually circular."

And yet they manage to go with the standard round cable for the USB 3 header. You know, the one with the thickest cables that is most difficult to route, and would most benefit from flat cables?

@Assimilator when they couldn't decide on the cable types & decided to go for the fail-safe one; the round-style cables. xDD
Also, for it's ~$100 asking price, I'm expecting better...
