BitFenix Ronin Review

Introduction

BitFenix have one aim in mind when it comes to designing products, quality.  With that being said, if you have ever owned a product from their extensive catalogue then you would be able to pass judgement and behind every cover, is a book someone loves to read!  BitFenix themselves recently launched the Flo headset which we took a look at and easily won our Value Award.  Is this a precedent for BitFenix products?  It remains to be seen!

In particular today, I will be taking a look at the BitFenix Ronin ATX case which features support for ATX, M-ATX and M-ITX form factor motherboards, 240mm radiator support for those water coolers among us and also 6 drive bays which all feature 2.5” HDD support.  Will this be another success for BitFenix or is there more to be had from other manufacturers?  Let’s find out, starting with the specifications…

What BitFenix has to say about the Ronin:

A warrior without a master, a chassis without limits. Ronin combines a dark, stealthy design with enhanced hardware compatibility for a case built for vengeance. Removable micro mesh strips provide additional ventilation and customization options, while the large window side panel with innovative Stealth Cover enables you to simultaneously show off the hardware you want and hide away the parts you don’t. To keep things frosty, Ronin can be outfitted with up to five fans, or a top-mounted 240mm water cooling radiator for superb cooling potential. Install up to six HDDs or SSDs inside the included FlexCage™, or slide out the middle section for direct airflow to even the longest graphics cards. Equipped with a bevy of DIY friendly features and signature BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Ronin vanquishes your opponents in style.
