BitFenix have certainly been busy this last year. Since their inception just 6 months ago they have endeavoured to bring to the community style and functionality. Just 6 months on and they are already launching another fully fledged gaming chassis.

Today we will be taking a look at BitFenix second product to launch, the Survivor. This time we aren't faced with a full tower case, weighing 18KG. This time, we are looking at a 10KG mid-tower case aimed at the gaming market. The idea behind the Survivor is that it will be a flexible unit, able to be transported to LAN parties, gaming events or even your buddies house because it has a easy to access handle that enables it to be more portable than other cases currently on the market. That's not all either, BitFenix have coated the Survivor in a beautiful matt surface material named BitFenix Softouch, that not only gives it a fantastic look but a pleasing feel - easy to clean and scratch resistance. There is plenty more aspects of the Survivor to engage in so lets not delay any longer...



BitFenix Take:
Ruggedized features combined with elegant styling, Survivor is a new paradigm in chassis design. Engineered for the mobile digital warrior, Survivor comes fully equipped with BitFenix S2™ security, an innovative carrying handle that hides away when not in use, and full compatibility with extra-long graphics cards. BitFenix's SofTouch™ coating helps the system resist a few bumps on the way to the LAN party, and balanced airflow means Survivor remains cool and stable in the heat of battle. All of this is geared to help you dominate at your next LAN event, rather than worrying about if your hardware will survive the day.
