BitFenix Introduces Shinobi XL Gaming Case
Since its release in April 2011, the BitFenix Shinobi has proven the companies most popular case design. We reviewed the BitFenix Shinobi case back in the summer and found it to be a very nice chassis. Today, BitFenix introduced a bigger version of the classic Shinobi design – Shinobi XL.
On the outside, Shinobi XL borrows the same battle-proven design that has made Shinobi a classic. Everything from the meshed fan vents and brushed aluminum logo to the signature BitFenix SofTouch surface treatment is faithfully reproduced. But one step closer reveals an entirely different warrior. Like its name suggests, Shinobi XL can accommodate XL-ATX motherboards with nine PCI slots for even the most extreme setups. On top, users are treated to four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, as well as a new innovation – the BitFenix SuperCharge™ port. This port is specifically designed for charging mobile devices, offering up to 2.5A of current for fast charging. The stealthiest warriors need to have ice running through their veins, which is why Shinobi XL is designed with water cooling in mind. Inside, users will find the BitFenix FlexCage™ hard disk rack which can be either rotated or removed entirely for optimum flexibility. Once removed, Shinobi XL can accommodate a host of water cooling equipment, including a 360mm radiator on top, a 360mm radiator in front, or a 240mm radiator on the bottom right out of the box.
