BitFenix are a company that many of us have come to know for their brilliant build quality and generally simple but stylish cases. With its sleek looks and patented SofTouch™ becoming a noticeable feature of their newer chassis to enter the market in recent months. BitFenix have really been pushing out the new chassis and they are not just remakes of older chassis, they are really starting to push the boundaries of innovation within the mainstream case market.

Being one of the smaller MATX chassis on the market and boasting at least a 240mm radiator compatibility how will this case size up to the much loved MATX towers like the Fractal Design Arc Mini or the Corsair 350D?. How will such a small case be able to cope with our overclocked i7? Well let’s find out, but first a few words from BitFenix on the Phenom.
