Features Choose Your Ally Sleek and streamlined, Comrade’s design appeals to those looking for an attractive, no-nonsense housing that fits in any modern environment. Available in both midnight black and arctic white models, users can choose the one that suits their own personal style. Enhanced Expansion Comrade delivers a surprisingly roomy interior that accommodates a multitude of hardware options. The dedicated 3.5″ and 2.5″ drive racks provide ample storage, all while allowing room for long graphics cards up to 30cm in length. Along with seven PCI slots and three 5.25″ bays, Comrade makes a great base for a modern system. Easy to Build Your PC should be your friend – not your foe. Comrade comes with multiple friendly features that make the building process a snap. Features like tool-free HDD trays and ODD retention mechanisms make installing your storage virtual child’s play. Motherboard standoffs have already been built directly onto the motherboard tray, and the simple pull-off front panel with independent I/O module saves you even more time during installation. Superspeed USB 3.0 Connectivity With the proliferation of HD media, files are not getting any smaller. Comrade comes equipped with a high-speed USB 3.0 port, perfect for quickly transferring files from external hard drives, thumb drives, and more. Incredible Extras Despite the low price tag, Comrade is loaded with features that are normally seen in much more pricey cases. Dual removable dust filters help keep the internals of the system dust-free, and are extremely easy to wash. Rolled-edge cable pass-throughs help protect your cabling, and a powder coated interior and aluminum BitFenix logo give Comrade a premium quality look.
