BitFenix Showcases Two New PC Cases

This week at the IT Partners event in France Taiwanese company BitFenix is showing off a couple of new, yet-unnamed PC cases, a mid-tower offering easy access to its insides, and a compact model likely targeting gamers who enjoy going to LAN parties.

The larger case features a front door that can be opened in both directions (without any modification or tinkering), three 5.25-inch bays, a removable mesh panel on top, and an I/O panel with four USB 3.0 ports and two audio connectors. The smaller chassis supports mini-ITX motherboards, it can accommodate long graphics cards and large CPU coolers, and has two USB 3.0 ports and an eSATA connector on the side, two built-in handles with a SofTouch coating, mesh panels both in front and on top, and a single (exposed) 5.25-inch bay.

Unfortunately the cases' prices and release dates are unknown but we'll probably find out more before or at CeBIT 2012 in March.

Update [31/1] - The 'little guy' is named Prodigy and it offers support for CPU coolers up to 180 mm tall, graphics cards up to 330 mm long, and for one 240 mm radiator.

I wonder if I can win one of these with my fappin' skillz like I did the last one.

I like the second one but the ports being on the right side make it kinda wierd. Most people have thier towers on the right of thier desks.

I really like that small one. If I ever went with a mini ITX build, I think that would be the case I choose.

I really like the first one. It's got similar styling to my P280, but addresses two of my minor gripes: 3.5" bay, door opens both ways

Very interested in that small case, I need a small form factor machine for all the LAN's I go to, lugging around a HAF-X is getting old.:banghead:
