Default Akasa Mirage-62 chassis

Due to the similarities between this and the Eclipse-62, the Mirage was always going to be compared to its sibling, the Eclipse. However, when you look at the case on its own, you realise just what a good piece of kit it really is. Probably the best removable motherboard tray I've ever used, combined with rock solid build quality from the light and durable aluminium frame make a great base for a system build, and while the look of the case could be seen as a little boring, there's plenty of room for customisation.

Although the component temperatures were admittedly a little disappointing, we feel the Mirage more than makes up for this slight stumble with simple brilliant noise levels, and its customisable, spacious and straightforward internal layout. However, I can't help but feel that this update to the Eclipse could, and perhaps should have been so much more than a face lift, especially when you consider the 20 price difference between the two models.

Just because something works well, doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement, and despite a few nice additions, and the excellent noise performance, I came away wanting more. In the end, both are very well built and very high quality cases it'll be down to personal preference whether you pay the extra money for the Mirage and its door.
