BitFenix Launches The Shogun Chassis
Like a true ruler seeking control of an army, the BitFenix Shogun stands tall, looking to be the de facto ruler for BitFenix's latest line-up of chassis.
Disguised in haze-black tempered glass panels with a stealthy aluminium exterior forming a shell around its interior layout, the BitFenix Shogun houses a host of unique and distinctive features, reminiscent of the Shinobi and Ronin from BitFenix's prior chassis. Delivering true modular support for user configuration and preferences, the Shogun gives way for fully-custom watercooling, extensive options for storage drive location, and RGB lighting support with existing products.
Allowing support for radiators upto 280mm in lengths to the front of the chassis, with 360mm and 140mm to the top and the rear, BitFenix does well to emphasis space and compatiblity should the user choose to adopt air cooling or watercooling. Were the user choose to adhere to the former, modular storage bays can be installed to make use of of space, housing up to six 3.5" drives and ten 2.5" inch drives divided amongst the surrounding areas of the chassis.
Taking note of the extreme demands of modern GPUs, BitFenix has arrived with a sophisticated solution for dealing with the weight requirements they entail. In what BitFenix has titled GPU Safe Technology, these PCI-like support brackets allow heavier graphics cards to rest comfortably, eliminating sag and cleaning up aesthetics. Along with a dedicated button to control the RGB lighting features residing to the SSD brackets on display to the left side panel, this also contains support for the included Chroma Controller as well as compatibility with "ASUS Aura" ready motherboards.
Compatible with standard ATX, E-ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, the BitFenix is ready to take rule, supporting all manner of hardware and user preferences for styling, launching on the 8th December and retailing for £144.95
