BitFenix Nova Mid-Tower Chassis Review

The interior of the BitFenix Nova is pretty straight forward, but it has been treated to the same black paint as the exterior, giving it a nice and uniform appearance. There’s a rather large CPU cooler mounting cut-out behind the motherboard, and all the motherboard standoffs are pre-installed, so this should speed up the installation time.


There’s a little room above the motherboard, which should help improve compatibility while giving you the extra space needed to mount a 120mm AIO cooler on the rear fan mount if you wanted.


The 5.25″ drive bay comes fitted with a tool-free locking mechanism, as well as some extra space to mount an extra hard drive. This space should also come in handy for a little extra cable management.


Further down, we’ve got two dedicated 2.5″ drive bay mounts. They’re a little tricky to access, but they’ll easily get the job done.


There’s room for 3 x 3.5mm drives here, which simply screw into place on the fixed bracket. It’s a bit of an old-school design, but it’s perfectly functional.


Some small rubber pads on the PSU mount, which should help reduce any unwanted vibrations.


There’s a good amount of space in here for a multi-GPU configuration, just be sure to check that if you’re using longer cards, they’re not going to conflict with the storage bays, as they cannot be removed.


Behind the motherboard, you’ll find little or no space for routing more than a fan cable. However, there’s room behind the hard drive bays to deal with excess cables and a few cable tie loops to tidy up any of the more demanding cables.
