XFX Bravo Type 01 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

XFX Bravo Type 01 Mid-Tower Chassis




The chassis is built to appear to float, and with the rounded top and bottom and skinny outstretched legs, this chassis does appear to do that. Down the bezel, amidst all of the horizontal strips of plastic, are three hidden bay covers and a very large intake toward the bottom half. This is, however, a large XFX made of aluminium added to the bottom so people are sure who designed this chassis.




Most of the top is rounded as you move back across the top of the chassis, but is broken up with the ventilation that runs down both sides as well. The forward section also holds the front I/O as it runs dead center down the top of the chassis.




The left side of the chassis has a plastic panel added to a steel inner panel. This allows them to make the standard looking section fore and aft, and also allows them to run the horizontal ventilation strips up the sides as well as adding in the bold red nameplate that carries XFX TYPE 01 on it.




The back of the chassis offers all the standards with the PSU being mounted at the bottom, which also offers a slide out dust filter. What we haven't seen is the S-shaped cuts in grommets to allow for external water cooling or a wire pass-through.




The cool thing about this design is that the Bravo Type 01 can set to the left of you or to the right of you. Since both side panels are identical, it makes that choice easy to what you have the room for, instead of having to rearrange the office for this chassis.




Under the chassis, the rounded lower section is broken up for ventilation of the PSU, and you can get a glimpse of the filter there too. To keep the chassis upright, the legs have been angled out to the sides and have thin rubber strips to give it a good footing on most surfaces.
