Hiper Osiris Aluminum Mid Tower Case


Assembling

Components used:
Intel Core2Quad Q8400
DDR2 OCZ Reaper X PC6400 (4-4-4-12)
Seagate 160GB
Western Digital 80GB
Gigabyte X38-DS4
Stock Intel fan
Hiper Type R MkII

The full assembly time of this build was pretty quick and painless. But not without a quirk or two. Below we have a quick shot of the power supply installed.

Here we have my Gigabyte EX38-DS4 motherboard installed. The tray is just large enough to house the motherboard. If you are using a larger server-type motherboard, there is plenty of room for it to fit but it would overlap the edge of the motherboard tray.

Next, we have the DVD and hard drives installed. The Osiris uses screws to mount all drives. There are easier ways of doing this but the current way looks better.

The one thing that I did not like about this case was the lip that extends from the top of the case to the bottom at the rear. This lip interfered with the screwing down of the thumb screws that holds the add-in cards in place. Granted these are thumb screws and can be tight mostly by hand, but for people that want that added security they will need to use a very small screwdriver.

Noise

When it came to noise we don’t have any complaints as there was only a noise hum that most of the time was drawn out by other things within the room like hard drive enclosures. Maybe if the black areas of the inside were covered in some type of sound dampening material we wouldn’t have heard what we did.
