Bit Fenix have fired some information our way in regards to their new chassis line aimed at the ITX and mATX standards and they’re trying to go even smaller than the Prodigy whilst retaining the ability to have a multi-GPU build and full size ATX PSUs to power such a setup:

Fifteen years ago Apple released the first iMac – a computer without floppy drive. Everyone were
saying “they must be nuts”, but somehow after this event most of people started to throw away their
old disks to trash and switched to CD-R. Today well known specialist in case manufacturing sets a
beginning of new era. You can get rid of your old CD’s now, cause here comes BitFenix Phenom.
Nowadays you can buy everything over Internet and download it very fast – games, music, movies.
Even data backup switched to clouds and nobody use for it anymore CD-R or DVD-RW drives just like
in old times.

BitFenix Phenom chassis dump external 5.25” slot and allows us to use more space inside your
computer in a better way. The model comes in two different versions – microATX and Mini-ITX. In the
first version you can install inside five 2.5” drives and two full size graphic cards in CrossFireX or SLI
mode. The second one – Mini-ITX version fits eleven 2.5” drives and one long length two-slot graphic
card. Despite small dimensions, there is also a place also for a standard ATX power supply and
240mm radiator, so its possible to build inside real gaming monster PC with watercooling.
BitFenix Phenom comes in two stylish colors – Arctic White and Midnight Black. Cover is made from
patented high quality SofTouch material, so case looks much more elegant and really modernist.
