BitFenix Shogun EATX Super Mid-Tower Chassis Review (Page 2)

TweakTown Rating: 95% Manufacturer: BitFenix





BitFenix chose to use a plain brown cardboard box to protect the case, and have printed all of the information on it in black ink. Across the top of the box, we see the BitFenix web address and the logo off to the right. The bulk of the panel is used to show a shogun's helmet, and Shogun is boldly written across the bottom.





On this side of the box, the company and product names are found above the cutout handle. Below it there are stickers for the serial number as well as for the EAN and UPC codes. The lower section of this panel is used to display the specifications, although, the view is blocked by the shipping label.




The back panel gets right to the point. Across the top, we see the GPU supports, the SSD Chroma, the EATX shield, and the 25mm of space behind the motherboard tray. Moving down the panel, there are larger images, and here BitFenix makes a point of the 360mm radiator support at the top, the removable storage drive racks, it shows here that GPU support is only 400mm not 410mm, and points out where to find the SSD Chroma.




The last of the panels does not offer much in text, but you do find two important things on this panel. First, there is a box for color, and a black sticker is located in this one. Our thought, though, is that there are plans to offer more choices or there would not be a reason to add the color box. This is also where you get the first idea of what the chassis inside looks like. The rendering does point an excellent job delivering the basic idea, but you have to see the case to appreciate it fully.




Keeping our chassis damage free, inside of the box, we find that the Shogun uses the typical gear to do it. There are layers of plastic on the outside of the tempered glass panels to keep them from being scratched, and it is then in which the entire chassis is wrapped in plastic. The top and the bottom of the chase are supported with thick Styrofoam, and this all culminates in allowing the chassis to arrive intact, without blemish, to your door.
