BitFenix has just revealed all the details of the new chassis, the Shogun! Taking input from some of the world’s most renowned enthusiasts, BitFenix has developed their new chassis range to impress high-end system builders. The Shogun is their new flagship model, offering high-end performance and features, as well as stunning aesthetic.
The chassis features a dual tempered glass design, with large tinted panels on the left and right sides, allowing you to really show off your hardware. There’s a full aluminium top and bottom panel, which wraps around the edges to give it a premium quality look and feel, while also giving the chassis great strength.
BitFenix is also deploying their new Quick Custom Design Technology, which offers up a modular interior, support for (up to) EATX motherboards, comprehensive cable routing, EATX Shield, support for up to 6 3.5″ drives or 8 x 2.5″ hard drives, and much more.
Cooling support isn’t exactly lacking either, with room for 360mm or 280mm on the top panel, 280mm or 240mm on the front and 140mm or 120mm on the rear panel, as well as dust filters on all intakes.
No word on pricing or release date just yet, but we’re expecting it to be quite expensive given the specifications and overall size of it. How much would you be willing to pay for this beast?
Dual Tempered Glass
BitFenix Shogun features two high-quality tempered glasses on either side to showcase the beautiful components. With semi tinted and fully tinted tempered glass you can hide the cables behind the motherboard tray without compromising on aesthetics. The semi tinted glass can showcase the components while giving it a lite shade to emphasize the premium looks.
Full Aluminum Top and Bottom Panels
To add to the premium elegant look of the Shogun, the top and bottom is wrapped around with thick curved aluminum panels. This gives strength as well as clean look while keeping the dust away from the PSU as well as the top ventilation mesh.
BitFenix Quick Custom Design Technology
Behind the eye catching panels is a spacious frame with ‘BitFenix Quick Custom Design Technology’ that can sport modular design for high end hardware. BitFenix Shogun supports up to EATX motherboards with customizable Motherboard tray for easy cable routing. The included Quick Custom EATX Shield can be used only when a EATX motherboard installed to route cables neatly or to hide the cables behind the HDD Bays. The chassis is designed with 25mm of space behind motherboard tray and plenty of cable tie spots for cable management.
With the ‘Quick Custom Design’, the hard drive cages supporting up to 6 HDDs or 8 SSDs can be easily removed to accommodate any other component or moved to any location on the mounting rails to satisfy your needs. It can host up to radiators of size 360mm or 280mm on the top panel, 280mm or 240mm on the front and 140mm or 120mm on the rear panel. These can be easily accessed with the snappy front and top panels that also come with dust filtered ventilations that can be easily washed along with the panel itself.
BitFenix GPU Safe Technology
BitFenix Shogun is optimized for high end systems with extreme water cooling for VR or 4K gaming dedicated systems. It supports up to three graphic cards with included ‘GPU Safe’ Graphic card supports. They can be easily configured to support different GPUs. This removes any possible damage that could happen to the electronic components due to bending. Shogun supports GPUs up to 410mm long and PSUs of up to 250mm (Can customize to fit longer PSUs by moving the modular HDD cages).
Quick Custom SSD Chroma
The new SSD Chroma technology features SSD illumination module with an RGB controller and along with the Shogun comes two all new SSD Chroma Modules. Thanks to Quick Custom design, the LED strip inside the Chroma modules can be easily adjusted to light up the SSD from side or from the bottom. The whole bracket can be easily and quickly removed thanks to ‘BitFenix Quick Custom Design’. The included Chroma controller supports the two SSD Chroma and Alchemy 2.0 Magnetic RGB Strips.
