Raijintek Ophion Evo Overview after 1 month of use

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have been using the Ophion Evo as my main travelling system for both my work and studies. 

 

The case frame is pretty solid, it comes with 2 peices of 5mm tempered glass panels and Raijintek sells the 2 pieces of steel plate side panels separately for $20 a piece. I chose to do this piece because there isn't many deep user/overview videos about this case. 

 

Good points 

It's price of $130.00

Light weight and strong for constant travel use. 

Options for side panels between steel or glass. 

Option for SFX or ATX power supply. 

Chamber separation between the GPU and the motherboard and power supply.

Space for full length GPU.

All fan ventilation are covered. 

Space for 240mm AIO liquid cpu cooler 32mm thick with dual 120mm fans. 

Up to 3 2.5mm ssd/hdd/sshd or 2 2.5 ssd and a 3.5 hdd storage. 

 

Bad points

Comes without the steel side panel plates, having to contact Raijintek to purchase them. 

Comes without power supply converter bracket for ATX/SFX converting. 

Comes without any fans. 

May not fit taller GPU models etc. (MSI Armour, PowerColor Red Devil and EVGA FTW3) 

AIO Liquid cooler radiators 34mm or thicker may cause fan propellers blockage. 

Front panel type C io isn't type C standard but USB 3.0 converted. 

Using a full ATX power supply and it's standard cables will be too long for the case and cause a messy look.

This means it's just "USB 3.1 gen 1". The Type C standard is only the form factor which doesn't define speeds, much like confusing M.2 being synonymous with NVME.  In fact I think the USB Type C on my Galaxy S8+ is only USB 2.0 standard speeds.

The strix is a taller card (similar to FTW3) and Raijintek has photos of that fitting with a 240mm RAD. So this might not be an issue.

 It will fit but the rad will  interfere withe the power cable and may cause damage to the sleeving as I am using custom black cable mod cables I noticed it when I tried out my msi armour version of gpu (rx 580).
