    Not using the ATX design harm this case, it clearly needs the extra air movement the PSU would generate.

    So the 7pound+ version with an extra fan, toolless extras and a window would be the one to test, maybe you can tell bitfenix that. ;)
    It could be very interesting as a "quiet" build and the price is good.

    Thanks for including a picture of the top and of the bottom fan filter. The front intakes (with filters) would have been interesting though.
    Also: are the drive bays "Stealthed"? or just the remove before use variant?

    I like this case. For a fairly cheap case it has nice features. All you need to do is add some more fans :) (and pay that 7 pound extra)

    Whats the story with this article and the cpc awards article loading up fine on iPhone then blacking out the text when the page is finishing loading. Does not happen on any other articles! Hope it's not some cheap ploy to try and get me to buy the bit-tech app!?

    is it possible to mount the PSU 'upside down' [so the fan is pointing up and not hoovering dust off the floor]?

    looks wise I'd rather go with this than the One Hundred, though [even though it's not perfect] I'd still probably opt for the 300 over both of them...

    of the three though i think this is the best looking, really nice looking case imo, just a shame it doesn't ship with more. by the time you've bought two decent fans its £70.

    I thought it was just me, but I've asked our dev to look into it. And I think forcing people to change their phones just to buy the bit-tech app (only for Android) is a bit much. It's not like we even get commission on new Android sales! :b

    Yes that is an issue (the app isn't available on iPhone). I don't have time to look at it now sorry.

    Fractal Arc Midi is better looking and has better cooling.

    typical bit pheonix - ship a case that requires you to go out and spend loads on more fans. Exactly the same with the colossus...

    It's a shame you did not take some results with some fans added in. I like the fact they don't chuck in loads of fans that I'd replace anyway, it's not great for "as shipped" reviews though.

    Well, for people having problems with their phones.... USE THE COMPUTER! =D

    Like the case and most of the people here that are prone to like it too may be willing to fork out some extra money to buy some fans. Didn't we get a similar situation with the Fractal R2?

    Is it fair to assume that a large percentage of people are gonna have a spare 120mm fan lying around?

    I know it would be a real pain to add one in the testing, but real world, we all got something lying around unused in a box...

    This would be a good case to do a
    little modding on.
