BitFenix Raider

6 posts in this topic

Firstly, I would like to thank Kul1 and BitFenix for supplying me this case, I really appreciate it and in return I am going to be posting my thoughts on it, with a few comparisons against my previous case, the Antec Sonata 3 and a few comparisons against the Antec P182, which is still highly regarded today.

Unfortunately due to the image restrictions on Neowin, I have had to leave out a few photos and I have also had to combine a few groups of images/photos together e.g. the temperatures.

This is a relatively new case by BitFenix and is referred to as having the best out of the box cooling out of all their cases, of course this will be put to the test later on!

And I apologize in advance for probably the longest post ever! :p:o

Lets get started!

Good looking case. I especially like the location of the USB ports as this prevents cables from draping in front of DVD/Blu-ray drives. Pretty solid looking case, I like it.

Thanks for this in depth review. :)

This case looks amazing, I think I might use it as part of my next system upgrade.
