BitFenix has introduced the Shadow chassis.
With a monolithic design, the Shadow has a magnetic door that hides away optical drives and comes encased with BitFenix's SofTouch Surface Treatment to give a matte finish and better safeguard against stains. The smooth surface is complemented by a brushed aluminum BitFenix logo, along with a customizable LED accent that's located at the bottom of the front door. The LED accent can be switched on to red or blue, or switched off.
Accommodating long graphics cards up to 320mm in length, and tall CPU coolers up to 165mm in height, the Shadow comes equipped with three 5.25-inch drive bays and no less than seven 3.5-inch bays. Each bay includes tool-free drive locking, and single 2.5-inch drive mount means Shadow users can enjoy lightning-fast boot times by installing an SSD.
The Shadow allows for housing of four 120mm fans, including two in the front, one on the bottom, and one in the rear. On top of two pre-installed 120mm Spectre fans, all fan intakes, including the front, bottom, and PSU area, feature removable dust filters to keep your system dust-free. A large CPU cutout ensures quick swapping of CPU coolers, while cable management features and black ribbon cabling helps facilitate a clean and tidy build.
BitFenix Shadow will hit shelves in October 2013.
