The Raijintek Styx is a single-chamber compact tower micro-ATX case with an aluminum shell and internal steel frame. It is essentially a larger version of Raijintek’s Metis mini-ITX case, similarly available in up to seven color varieties with a solid or windowed option. The Raijintek Styx however, increases component support to include 240mm water-cooling radiators, longer graphics cards and taller CPU air coolers. Just like the Metis, the Raijintek Styx has an elegant brushed aluminum finish with the exception of the white version being reviewed in this article.

Product was given in exchange for work done to produce this review.
Initially priced at $104.99, the Raijintek Styx in all its color options with the exception of white can be had for only $84.99 across the board from NewEgg.com at the time of writing this article. The white version is available for slightly less at $82.99, but otherwise, all the features are similar.
The packaging uses the standard brown box with dual foam inserts flanking the case on each side. The Styx is mounted inside the box with the front facing upward. Since the Styx comes in seven color varieties, the side has a checklist of what color the content of the packaging is.
Furthermore, the viewing window surface is doubly protected on both internal and external view surfaces with plastic film to prevent scratches during shipment.
