BitFenix Neos Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅02-07-14

In their pursuit to dominate the market, BitFenix now has numerous computer chassis models which target different price bands. Their most recent release; Neos, is their most aggressively priced case yet.

Neos should suit users which prefer subtle and clean styling which maintains a sense of elegance. Not only is the styling spot on, but BitFenix also supply this case in a myriad of different flavours to satisfy personal preference and particular system configurations.

Inside the chassis, the layout is generous to high-end system specifications and the build quality is surprisingly good for such a low price-tag. Although there are some constraints for the maximum height of the CPU cooler, the graphics card clearance is pleasing – allowing up to 13” for a single card configuration.

Most, if not all cases engineered at this price-point will have certain cut-backs and Neos does have a few. At the top of the case there are no mounting holes for installing cooling fans or adding in a radiator as part of an ALC and we were slightly disappointed to see all PCI covers are disposable once removed.

The cost of this case is by far one of the biggest highlights. Neos can be purchased for £30 / $50 which is amongst the lowest priced options on the market and you’d be hard pushed to find something which includes such a solid design and useful feature-set.

BitFenix has done an excellent job in bringing to market such an aggressively priced computer chassis. Neos represents fantastic value for money and will be ideal for any system builder where adhering to a tight budget is paramount.
