Bringing affordable chassis designs to the masses is what BitFenix has been about since its inception. Not only have they been great at delivering wallet friendly designs, BitFenix has also delivered shapes, lighting, textures and all around good looking chassis' so far. Up to now it seems they are well known for the Colossus in its many flavors. While that design is a very large full tower chassis, sometimes that isn't what's needed for a build, or the larger frame just won't fit in your limited spacing. BitFenix already released one mid tower chassis design with the Survivor and Survivor Core cases. While I thought the chassis was stunning to look at, it was complicated to get inside once fully assembled.
So, BitFenix went back to the design team and said, let's deliver another mid tower chassis, but make it look nothing like the Survivor or Colossus cases already out there. This time around they delivered me a more subdued chassis with straight lines and a small stature as to accommodate everything from a full ATX build down to mini-ITX systems. Not only that, but they offer it in a case that fits not only in the spacing that is sometimes limited, but with the more subtle styling that allows this new chassis to fit with almost any decor. So, not only can this make for a full on gaming chassis, it can also compliment a black TV stand and LCD in your entertaining area. With a mini-ITX system installed, it will even make for an attractive HTPC.
Enough about what this case is capable of! I say we get right to the point and see what BitFenix offers in the Shinobi Window mid tower chassis we are going to look at today. Hopefully with the lowered cost of this unit, things aren't left out of the design to accommodate for a way to save users money. I have grown fond of the SofTouch coatings and tool-free designs. That in mind, let's get right into the specifications so I can work through the chart and get you the pricing and availability information I know is just as important to buyers as what the case actually looks like.
