Price at time of Review: Found at newegg.com white: $49.00+$9.99 shipping black: $54.99+$8.99 shipping Note: Priced without windowed panels.
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Affordable, build quality and aesthetics, windowed panels coming soon, supports large GPU's

Exterior Overview

For the exterior and interior viewing, we’ll be using the white case since it’s easier to see the details. The front has a plain white face with three 5.25″ bays. Centered on the lower half, we find the Bitfenix logo. DSCN1828 Moving along to the left side of the case, we have a solid white (or black) panel. DSCN1827 The right side also has a flat solid panel gaining access to the rear of the motherboard tray. We also find the front I/O ports and power buttons towards the lower front. DSCN1829 Let’s take a closer look at the front I/O panel. Moving from top to bottom, we have the power button and the reset button. Below that we have the power on indicator next to the headphone 3.5mm jack. Next is the HDD activity indicator and microphone jack. Finally, we have a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port. DSCN1830 The case supports a bottom mounted PSU and 7 expansion slots with mounting found outside of the chassis. The rear exhaust supports a 120mm fan with two external water cooling grommets found just above the exhaust fan. DSCN1831 DSCN1832 The bottom of the case is supplied with a removable intake filter just underneath the power supply mount. DSCN1833

    Where did you get the extra clips for the third fan on the Cryorig?

      I wish we had an answer, but the Author might not be around anymore to answer. I hope I’m wrong!
