BitFenix has announced the Comrade chassis.
Designed for first-time users and builders on a budget, the new chassis's front panel comes with a smooth micro-texture and an aluminum logo badge in the middle. With clearance for CPU tower coolers up to 160mm in height, as well as long graphics card support up to 300mm in length, it has the ability to house three optical drive bays, three 3.5-inch HDD bays, and a dedicated 2.5-inch disk rack for installing up to three high-speed SSDs.
Tool-free locking makes installing storage devices such as optical devices and hard disks straightforward, and removable front and bottom dust filters help keep the insides of your system clean. The bottom mounted PSU area offers plenty of room for even the most beefy power supplies these days, while independent I/O shield with USB 3.0 port makes first-time setup incredibly easy by allowing users to simply pull off the front panel to access their drives and fans without cabling entanglement. There are also premium all-black cabling and roller-edge cable pass-throughs to help protect internal wiring.
The Comrade is available in Midnight Black and Arctic White, and will be available this month.
