Introduction

BitFenix is one of those companies that, in a very short span of time, went from being relatively unknown, to a company that is in the minds of just about anyone who is up to speed on what is what in terms of cases. After starting off with designs like the Colossus, a lot of their potential customer base was still on the fence about their offerings, but as time progressed, and as they came to market with the Prodigy, you simply must live under a rock if that chassis does not pop right into a mental image whenever its name is mentioned. Of course, there have been many other designs along the way too, and in what we are about to see, there is that same lineage that makes someone know instantly where this chassis came from.

While the market truly is flooded with mid-tower designs, BitFenix took measures to be sure that they were not at the bottom of the barrel, and in this new design, they are taking all of the best parts of previous designs, and delivering a familiar, yet completely new take on what a mid-tower chassis should be. They kept the SofTouch coating, and the simple aluminum logo on the face of the chassis.

There are also plenty of features that we expect to see in designs such as this in 2014, where the plan is to give customers a unique take on what to build a very clean PC for gaming in. With this concept, we need room for longer video cards, good airflow and options, as well as wire management options. With this design, BitFenix brings out the mod skills, and offers a stealth cover that cleans up any mess that may have been, and makes for a very presentable finished product.

Today, we are having an up close and personal look at the Ronin from BitFenix. While images of samurai fighting are clashing in my head, I don't quite think that is the angle here. The idea of this name was to offer a mid-tower chassis that has no real master, and also brings out that take no prisoners attitude that a twelfth century warrior, and more specifically the Ronin, brought to the field of battle. BitFenix really puts together a slick design, and love it or hate it on the outside, the inside will make you wish your chassis has what this offers.
