BitFenix Outlaw Mid Tower Chassis Review
Luke Hill+ / 3 years ago
BitFenix are a relatively new company as far as case manufacturers go. They exploded onto the market back in 2010 with their revolutionary Colossus which helped catalyse a significant design change for many future cases. The enthusiast and gamer market saw full-tower cases become more appealing by offering the external eye-candy they had previously lacked. Innovation is universally welcomed. With this fact in mind, BitFenix have designed the unique case we will be reviewing today, the Outlaw.
The BitFenix Outlaw is unique due to its inverted ATX layout. This layout design sees the graphics card and other PCI expansion equipment located towards the top of the case with the CPU positioned towards the bottom of the case, near the power supply. BitFenix claim that this unique layout will enhance cooling and allow you to install “incredibly long” graphics cards. BitFenix SofTouch is another unique feature used on the Outlaw. BitFenix claim that this proprietary surface treatment looks fantastic and produces a soft feel to the chassis while also helping to resist fingerprints and scratches. Hopefully, SofTouch will deliver on BitFenix’s claims.
4 3.5” hard drive bays, 4 5.25” bays and 1 2.5” SSD mount are among the more common features for this £40/€40/$50 mid-tower case. The Outlaw has cooling options in abundance. There are 8 fan locations allowing up to 8 120mm fans or 6 120mm and 2 140mm fans to be installed.
With its attractive price tag and abundance of features, do BitFenix have a winner in their Outlaw?
