I have been using the Raidmax Alpha Prime as my primary build for a month now and I love it.
While the Alpha Prime is similar in design to the original Alpha, it packs some extra features.
The below images show off some of the differences between the two.
Alpha original vs Alpha Prime.
As you can see the Alpha Prime features a tempered glass front panel and in place of an RGB strip they provide 3 RGB fans.
The RGB is controlled with an included remote allowing you to switch to 20 static colors, 22 very smooth dynamic effects.
The Alpha Prime has a tempered glass side panel which is fastened with 4 screws. The original Alpha has a windowed side panel with a thick border and is mounted to the back with two screws.
The durable yet lightweight frame makes building the Alpha Prime a breeze and Raidmax allows plenty of space for clean cable management.
Side note: For optimal cable management, I paired the Alpha Prime with the Raidmax Vampire (actual image below).
The Alpha Prime has all the proper holes for mounting different sized fans and radiators, however, you may need to improvise when screwing in radiators and fans depending on the components size – See below image.
