RAILIGHT

OVERVIEW
Well, it was time for me to switch to something more mobile, as I am moving to college dorms in a few month so wanted something easy to carry around, switching to mATX at the moment is not an option so decided to get myself a portable midtower.

Enter the Bitfenix Survivor.

*UPDATE* Monday, April 16th 2012

Forgive me for crude photos, I dont have a great camera, space to take good photos, or any experience for shooting or using photoshop.

Received my Gentle Typhoons, they are unexpectedly heavy and feel really high quality and sturdy.

Yep Bitfenix chassis are quite amazing, really sturdy build, great design and amazing cable management.

ATM I got 6 Terabytes total worth of storage space inside this tiny Survivor

got myself Seagate Baracuda for 190 USD which is quite good for local prices
