BitFenix Portal Mini-ITX Chassis
Fresh out of the box, the Portal is in full view. The front of the chassis is made of aluminum, it is rounded at the top and bottom, and the entire front is curved to meet the side panels. There is black mesh at the top and bottom of the panel to allow the chassis to breathe, and near the bottom, we see the power button, between the thick wire legs which support it.
The top of the chassis is rounded just like we saw on the front. With this version of the Portal, we have a window which allows a view of the video card, and those without the window offer no view of the interior at all.
The left side of the chassis is mostly flat where the black angular trim lines make their way through it. The bulk of the exterior is solid aluminum sections, and there is no door on this side, but we do see the line along the back where the chassis will open up.
The back of the chassis has mesh at the top and bottom just like the front does, but the majority of this end of the case is opened to allow access to the pair of expansion slots, the rear I/O, and also to be able to mount the PSU.
The right side of the chassis is nearly a mirror image of what we saw on the left side of the Portal, just that this time, we can also see that there is an I/O panel fitted into the black trim line.
In the I/O panel, BitFenix kept it simple. There is an HDD activity LED at the bottom left, a pair of HD Audio jacks which are not marked, and there is also a pair of USB 3.0 ports found here.
The view from under the Portal shows that all aspects of this chassis are rounded. The floor of the chassis is drilled to allow for airflow into the chassis, and we see four screws holding the ball bearing runner in place. The thick wire legs do support the chassis, and there are thick rubber tubes at the front and back to ensure good footing for the Portal.
