The other fan provided with the case is a 120mm rear fan. Both front- and rear fans are the same kind and are not PWM controllable. Both fans use the typical 3pin fan connector.

Testing:

Following system was used during the testing:
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 rev 3.1
Processor: Intel Core I5 2500K
Memory: 4x2GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 6850 1024MB
ODD: Sony DVD-burner
OS HDD: Kingston 2.5″ 64GB SSDNov V100
Data HDD: 2x1Tb Hitachi 7k1000b 7200RPM
Power Supply: Enermax ENM750AWT

First I’d like to mention that there were a couple sharp edges in the case so one should be extra cautious when building a computer in to Asgard Pro. Other than that we did not see any design flaws with the Asgard Pro.

Installation of the computer was a smooth process. There was enough space for the motherboard installation and thanks to a hole in the motherboard trail the CPU cooler installation was easy also. There was enough space for our test setups graphics card Radeon 6850.  Also 3.5″ HDD:s were installed into their places. 2.5″ SSD can be installed below the ODD trail with four screws which are provided with the case. The power supply is installed in its place on the bottom section of the case and thanks to cable management system there should be no cable mess within the case.

Conclusion:

With the exception of couple sharp edges the Asgard Pro is a really nice budget case. Priced at only 40€ I did not expect Asgard Pro to perform like the cases which cost up to four times more. Asgard Pro does not have any serious issues but it doesn’t offer anything mindblowing either. It is a good quality basic case. If you need a good, yet inexpensive case – I can recommend Xigmatek Asgard Pro.

Pros:
+ Availability as window/no-window model
+ Enough HDD slots
+ No resonance sounds

Cons:
- Couple sharp edges
