BitFenix is a company that over time has come up with some really great designs and additional components for cases since I have got to know them. As far as chassis design goes, the Colossus, Outlaw, Raider, Survivor and even the Shinobi were all great cases in their own right and always delivered a style that sets BitFenix apart from quite a few of the other manufacturers who just seem to be slapping together the same thing time and time again.
On top of that BitFenix tries to think about other aspects of the build as well and is why they offer Alchemy LED kits and sleeved cables and why they develop the Recon and Hydra Pro fan controllers, USB 3.0 front panels, assorted Spectre fans and bay adapters and covers. This makes them an almost one stop shop for a themed build with any bit of kit you could want to install.
I assume most of you have seen the Shinobi I reviewed right around this time last year and this new chassis is a take on that design, but in reality it mostly keeps just the aesthetics using the defined lines and SofTouch coatings, it even has a similar mesh panel on the top, but even that is different. There is a complete redo of the interior, not just an enlargement of the original design, but that isn't all. There is this new feature on the latest submission called a SuperCharge port, along with something called a FlexCage that I want to get to know a little better since these are something I have yet to see on any BitFenix offering.
The chassis we are about to delve into today is the Shinobi XL from BitFenix. As I addressed this chassis is a mix of a lot of new things mixed in with the style and features that have been a huge success for BitFenix up to this point. There is no need to completely change something that isn't broken, but even though the name may say Shinobi, this is a chassis that can stand on its own and offers way more than what the original design brought to the table.
What I do like already is that this isn't just an enlargement and BitFenix is sticking to their words and trying to innovate and create new things with each and every release. Come and see what BitFenix has in store for us this time with the Shinobi XL full tower chassis.
