Posted: August 29, 2013 10:40PM
BitFenix is known for producing quality computer cases, often with interesting designs. Now the company is adding a new case to its lineup, namely the Shadow. The case is all black and features the company's SoftTouch surface treatment to give it a nice matte finish that's pleasant to the touch. It is a mid-tower case that measures 190 mm wide x 440 mm tall x 506 mm deep. These dimensions allow for graphics cards up to 320 mm in length, CPU coolers up to 165 mm in height, and allows ATX, micro ATX, mini ITX motherboards.
The front is covered by a door that is held shut by two magnets. Behind the door the user will have access to three 5.25 inch optical drive bays, and opening the door will also allow the front fan to suck in more air should it be needed. Under the door there is an LED strip that glows red or blue; however, you can turn it off on the I/O panel if needed. The case will include support for up to seven 3.5 inch drives and one 2.5 inch drive; it supports USB 3.0, and has seven PCI slots. There is room for four fans: two in the front, one in the back, and one on the bottom. It will come with two 120 mm Spectre fans installed.
The BitFenix Shadow should be available in October, but there is no word on price yet.
