The Helios Cruiser has a the ATX form factor. ATX is the most ubiquitous of case standards, providing the largest array of compatible hardware on the market. Using the ATX standard, the case can house motherboards and power supplies with form factors ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. The dimensions of the case itself (LxWxH) are 490mm x 190mm x 455mm.
The Helios Cruiser has seven expansion slots, so there is plenty of room for extra components, which may be a deciding factor when planning on the longevity and build type of a PC system. The case has four 5.25" drive bays, which is enough to house an optical drive and a couple of hard drives, while still having a couple of extra free hard drives with the four 3.5" drive bays that are also available. To mount an SSD you would require an adapter, however, as there are no 2.5" drive bays.
Made primarily of Plastic, the Helios Cruiser is built to be lightweight, but strong enough to keep your components protected. Plastic cases generally have a thin metal layer to improve protection, and are also generally fairily cheap. Whatever your case's material, it is important to keep a consistent airflow so that heat doesn't build up inside. It is therefore advised that you make use of the available built-in case fans and fan installation sections.
