Specifications, Availability and Pricing

This chassis is made of solid, thick, 100% all aluminum, except for the much thinner door panels. They are a fair bit thinner than the rest of the main body and drive rack. The FenrisWolf is black throughout, with accents on the outside in contrasting, brushed aluminum. The majority of the front panel is covered in a "screen" mesh that acts as a dust filter while also cleaning up the exterior looks. This mid tower is roomy inside and as you will see, it can be packed with goods and still be clean and tidy.

 

Air flow inside this chassis is limited in my opinion. Scythe includes two 120mm Slipstream fans in 25mm thickness. Looking at their website for reference, I found it is listed with only 40 CFM per fan. While keeping things silent at near 10 dBA levels, they don't offer much cooling ability to the interior spacing of the FenrisWolf. I am a fan of silence, but at what expense? I am eager to get this built so I can have a look at the CPU temps and see what things look like, even at idle.

 

Current availability is set to only seven e-tailers. Prices range from $110 all the way up to $198 USD, depending on where you buy. Most stores are in the lower end of this spectrum and are reasonably priced compared to Scythes own MSRP of the highest e-tailers $198 pricing. At near $200 this chassis better pack quite a punch. Since most buyers look for the best deal, I bet you pay near the $110 pricing, and the expectations aren't as high either. Let's get down to it and have a look at just what is there.
