[Bitfenix] Introduces Phenom

post #1 of 114
Thread Starter 
I know this was shown in the last CES and pictures have popped here and there, but this is the official launch from Bitfenix.

Quote:
Today, BitFenix is proud to officially announce Phenom, the newest creation from the BitFenix Design Lab. Featuring clean, uncluttered styling and tremendous build flexibility, Phenom represents the perfect marriage of advanced functionality with next-level SFF design for a case that's sure to be an instant classic.

Engineered to be a sleek modern cube design that suits any environment, fans of clean and elegant chassis are going to feel right at home with Phenom. The mesh accents along the sides of the case perfectly complement the smooth surfaces of the SofTouch-coated top and front panels. In the center is a highly-polished BitFenix logo that contrasts the subtle matte contours perfectly, creating a design that is ideal for any modern décor. And because different systems have different requirements, Phenom comes in both mini-ITX and micro-ATX variants to meet the needs of an even larger group of users.

There are 2 variants you can choose from:

1. Mini-ITX



2. Micro-ATX

These seem to be better looking than the prodigy IMHO. The two units have the same proportions with some differences in internal cooling and hard drive space due to motherboard orientation:

Cooling Front120mm x 2 (1 included) or 140/180/200/230mm x 1 (optional)

Yeah... same with the Prodigy (speaking of the M-ITX)...

I'll keep my SFF or my S3 for that mobo form factor.


The M-ATX isn't bad, but meehhh...




Thanks - T

If you have the money for the S3 definitely go with the S3, but the price difference between the 2 would probably be $150+; so if you're on a budget, like most people are, this is a good option. Plus this is a tad smaller, that was the only thing that kept me from getting the S3, it was a bit bigger than I wanted for an ITX case. This turns out smaller by almost an inch width wise, almost 2 inches height wise and an half an inch depth wise.

S3 - 268mm x 380mm x 382mm (WXHXD)
Phenom - 250mm x 330mm x 374mm (WXHXD)
