Building on the fame and fortune of a popular product is always a brave thing to do but this is exactly what BitFenix have done with their new Shinobi XL. The original Shinobi pulled in multiple awards and as a result BitFenix felt this burly mid-tower deserved some XL treatment and here we have Shinobi XL.
Shinobi XL is a larger version of the original; with room for XL-ATX even more device storage and water-cooling capabilities. BitFenix have also upped the connectivity ports on the front to include 4x USB 3.0 ports and a new SuperCharge port providing up to 2.5A for getting power to mobiles devices and such. Shinobi XL has certainly built lots of anticipation so let’s waste no further time and begin our analysis.
BitFenix take on Shinobi XL
We've taken our battle-proven Shinobi design and expanded it, creating a roomy, feature-packed full tower enclosure that will not only turn heads, but take them clean off. The larger size enables you to outfit your Shinobi XL with the latest fear-inducing hardware, including XL-ATX motherboards and the longest graphics cards. Shinobi XL can accommodate up to two 360mm radiators, making it ideal for water cooling enthusiasts. Four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and the all-new BitFenix SuperCharge™ port keep your peripherals and mobile devices ready for battle, while the BitFenix FlexCage™ hard disk rack adds to the Shinobi XL's nimbleness. With three included Spectre™ fans, tool-free drive locking, filtered intakes and signature BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Shinobi XL is the chassis you need when vengeance is not enough.
