Manufacturer and Sponsor: BitFenix
MSRP: £50 GBP / 59€ EUR / $69 USD (Inclusive of VAT).


BitFenix, since their entrance into the chassis market back in April 2010 have had great success due to their determination to provide the consumer with not only something different but something that oozes quality. Right from the beginning Vortez have followed BitFenix on their journey of success, bringing you - the reader, the very first of their product reviews.

As tradition would have it, we are here again with the first review of a new case from BitFenix, named Shinobi. Shinobi is a mid-tower case that differs from its bigger brothers the Survivor and Colossus cases by bringing a touch of sleekness and elegance to the table. Available in two variants - window version (being reviewed today) and none-window version this case features 2 pre-installed fans, tool-less mechanisms throughout and of solid steel construction.

Shinobi is due out in April 2011 and will be given the MSRP of £50 GBP / 59€ EUR / $69 USD (Inclusive of VAT).


BitFenix Take on Shinobi:
Named after some of the most feared assassins of the modern age, Shinobi empowers the digital warrior to silently and efficiently dispatch his opponents. Maximum expansion and compatibility with long graphics cards enables you to equip Shinobi with the tools you need to get the job done. Superior cooling options allow the system to stay cool and collected during the heat of battle, while a sophisticated yet understated styling shows the opposition you mean business.
