BitFenix Shinobi XL Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅30-03-12

It’s great doing a full tour of an empty chassis as you discover its different features but how it handles a full system is much more important. Here at Vortez we have two different test systems for the case reviews and ATX system for full and mid-tower cases and an XL-ATX system for XL-ATX specific cases. Today we will be using the XL-ATX system to show off the full potential of Shinobi XL.

Shinobi XL handled the XL-ATX with ease. Getting components inside was quick and easy thanks to the masses of space and abundance of cable management grommets. BitFenix are now bundling a handy motherboard stand-off adapter which I think is a fantastic idea.

As you can see from the pictures creating a clean, tidy setup within this chassis is quite easy. I encountered no problems.

Installation complete – XL-ATX inside without any hitches

Cable management is great

HDD installation is exactly the same as other BitFenix cases - the drive simply slots into an available tray. These trays can accomodate 3.5" and 2.5" drives. 2.5" drives will need screws attaching to the underside.
