Scythe Announces FenrisWolf PC Case

Scythe announces its first PC Case for the PC DIY market. FenrisWolf PC Case was designed by a cooperation with Germany’s most famous case modder called Benjamin "benny" Franz. This cooperation is displayed by the logo “b” on the side panel. The new pc case has more to show than just a nice design, it’s equipped with several popular Scythe products.

6 kg (13.23 lb) full aluminum FenrisWolf PC Case has the overall dimensions of 527 × 203 × 455 mm (20.75 × 7.99 × 17.91 inch) and is covered completely in elegant black color. It is equipped with the famous Slip Stream 120 mm case fans which are spinning at 800 rpm, generates a low noise level of 10,70 dBA and constant airflow of 40,17 CFM (68 m³/h). The fan in the front can be mounted in other 5.25” bays which allows an individual optimization of airflow.

FenrisWolf PC Case is furthermore equipped with Scythe Hard Disk Stabilizer x4 which allows mounting and decoupling up to 4 Hard Drives. By mounting Scythe Hard Disk Stabilizer x4 with the Slip Stream 120 mm case fan in the front, it is possible to cool the mounted Hard Drives actively. In order to reduce vibrations, the side and top panels are enforced with stripes of foam at two bearing sides.

To mount external 3.5“ Drives (e.g. Floppy) 1 set of 5.25" Bay Converter is pre-mounted in the front and can be replaced by other 5.25” bay drives. Two cable ducts are located on the back side of the FanrisWolf PC Case to ease up the use of watercooling systems and external devices such as Scythe Kama BayAMP. The top panel is equipped with two USB, one E-SATA, headphones and microphone connector and can be closed using the small cover.

The Fenriswolf PC Case is now available for an MSRP of 100 EUR (excluding VAT) and 195 USD (excluding TAX).

Gotta say, I'm liking it. Generally not a fan of front-door cases but adding a dust filter to it looks to make it very easy to clean, especially if the door is removable. Plus, adding in their own high-performance fans instead of generic ones is a nice touch, I know I replace my case fans with better ones on most cases I get.

Here's to hoping it lives up to the hype once reviews and cooling stats start coming out.

Nice styling, but a windowed sidepanel would be a plus with the black interior...

I like this, but that B on the side ruins it for me.

:D I am spekal!


But no - to me, nothing special about it, no OMGZ have to have that feature. Just a black box, with a couple of fans included and an interesting hard drive installation procedure.

That's the explanation I was looking for, you were being too cryptic man!

HEH HEH! I must admit, it does seem rather lacking, but call me boring but I like bog standard - actually I'll rephrase that. I like simplicity. I'd have preferred a bottom mounted PSU and a dual 120mm space at the top for a rad.

Each to their own. I guess the OMGZ feature to me could be the fact it's simple. However, it's not OMGZ gorgeous, just nice. If it's cheap I'd be interested in one.

:D

Indeed, i like those things too. It would be interesting to see how well cable management would fair, and also like you indicated, how well a water cooling solution could be set up.

Ever since I bought my Lian-Li A17 I've preferred the "all 5.25" design. Be able to get the perfect mix of 5.25", 3.5", and 2.5" drives with good air flow.

A bit plain, and I'm also not a fan of doors - might look unfinished if removed. Otherwise very clean on the inside. If it's their first case and of their own design, I give it good marks and look forward to future designs.

Note for all manufacturers: Maybe start designing more cases with 8 slots? Even if I wasn't utilizing 4 double-slot cards, with some motherboards I can hang a double-slot card off the bottom slot. Maybe give the south bridge a little more breathing room, among other benefits.

Heh, another case based off of the Hiper Anubis...

Well I suppose if you don't like the styling of the Anubis, but you want the case features...
