Gigabyte 3D Aurora Interior

The Aurora has a very basic layout; 5.25" and 3.5" bays in the front, motherboard tray in the rear. The power supply is supported by two bars that run from the 5.25" bay cage to the rear of the case. Two humps protrude from the bars to ensure the power supply is securely resting on it. The humps double as a way to route cabling and keep it out of sight. The Aurora's rear fans are 120mm in size and glow by use of the blue LED's. The fan blades are clear so the LED's can give them a luminance.

The Aurora has seven PCI slots that are much like any other PCI slots, although Gigabyte has kept them tool-less by use of a clip in fastener. The clip unhooks and swings out for installing a video or PCI card and clips back into the chassis to secure the card. If you feel insecure with the clip method, screws can be used to fasten the card in place.
