The style of the case isn’t too bad. The massive 17kg lump is a Micro-ATX-style case featuring a three-chamber structure that allows the motherboard PSU, graphics card, and motherboard to radiate heat independently from one another. Great for cooling, not the best for upgrading as to gain access to the motherboard slots, you need to remove from the sides panel (not with tools) and take off from the case the fans, and then only do you access those RAM as well as M.2 slots.
Audio mode, lighting, monitoring, volume cooling, and monitoring. Control the entire process through your Gamer Dial at any time without having to modify the configuration files if you’d like to assign these functions differently, like selecting it as a way to search the internet and begin playing. Is it a device to make money? Absolutely; however, it’s an awesome one.
In addition to the design, elegant appearance, and lovely accessories, the case is a little disappointing. Many of the parts are made from plastic and don’t feel premium anywhere, at least not at the price of 4,499 euros for our model. The mixture of high-gloss and matte looks pretty chic, but it doesn’t feel as luxurious, and the high-gloss pieces also tend to attract fingerprints.
The AEGIS is well-equipped with readily accessible ports, though it could have had some extra USB ports. On top are two jacks for headsets and microphones and two USB 3.1 ports, USB 3.2 and 1x Type C. On the rear, which includes the graphic card, we have audio 5x SPDIF RJ-45 and 2x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.1 and 1x type-C PS/2, 3x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1x HDMI 2.0b. Now, all seems well, particularly the Type-C ports, which are attractive. Bluetooth 5.0, as well as Intel WiFi 6, provide wireless connectivity.
An MSI RTX 3080 Ventus 3X can be used as your graphics card. It allows you to play games in 4K and 60 frames per second without issue. MSI is relying on 2x 1TB M.2 SSDs by Western Digital in a Raid system to power the drives. This is enough for gaming to run on the powerful SSD. It is worth noting that MSI is now offering a 3TB HDD data grave from Toshiba. This is quite lavish but. The entire structure gets its energy from a 750W power supply placed inside its cubbyhole. It doesn’t bother other components of the setup by generating temperature.
The cooling appears to be decent. The CPU doesn’t seem annoyed while gaming and stays at a maximum temperature of 77 degrees due to MSI’s powerful AIO cooling. The M.2 SSD remains at the moderate level at 44°. The graphics card can benefit from a bit more breeze, and its temperature can rise to 82 ° under 4K at full load. This isn’t a problem in any way. However, it could be improved. But the AEGIS isn’t completely silent. The fan’s noise isn’t unpleasing, but it is heard. In this respect, we’ve also observed more clearly, or less heard.
Gaming performance, on the other hand, remains as good as the innards assure. The RTX3080 Ventus is similarly to the NVIDIA Founder’s Edition and ensures that you can play every game currently available with 60 frames per second in 4K. Because of NVIDIA’s DLSS, which is a feature that makes it more possible, provided that the games you play to support it. Overall it’s an impressive gaming machine. However, it’s pretty expensive and has a few odd configurations to play games in certain regions.
If you are looking to purchase this model of AEGIS TI5 would be well advised to take a close study of the different configurations and maybe get a few hundred dollars on the high cost of purchasing. The 128GB RAM doesn’t make sense (especially given that we’d anticipated a little higher than 2933s for this price). The HDD is almost insignificant considering the 2 TB M.2 SSD.
