Bitfenix is a bit of the new guy on the block, yet this is the second case we have had the opportunity to review from them in the past year. Last July we took a look at their Shinobi
case and at the time I said it was a nice departure from their original Colossus chassis – which was a bit odd for my taste. They have quickly become known for not just their interesting designs, but the quality of their construction. Taking a look at the Raider which we have here today, my first impression is that it is a refinement of the previous Shinobi design.
Like the Shinobi
, the Raider is an mid-tower ATX offering that is clearing going for the minimalistic look. Specifications on the chassis can be found below.
For a mid-tower case, the Raider has plenty of drive options and a whopping four USB 3.0 ports. I am curious as to how they make that work, but we will have to look at that later in the review. On the next page we will take a look around the outside of the chassis.
