    Remember the unnamed BitFenix mid-tower we revealed yesterday? Well it's nameless no more. The case is called Ghost and it's got more goodies than initially thought.

    Seen below, the upcoming chassis has a black coating both inside and out, and features a front door that can be opened to the left or to the right, a top-placed I/O panel with four USB 3.0 ports, a built-in SATA drive dock (also found on top), and three 5.25-inch bays with tool-free mounting systems.

    BitFenix's Ghost also has four 3.5-inch and three 2.5-inch internal drive trays, support for micro ATX and ATX motherboards, three pre-drilled holes for watercooling tubing (all on the rear panel), a (removable) top mesh panel with a foam dust filter, and seven PCI slots (no fans though). Still no word on the pricing or availability of this case.

    Kinda smart of them to make a dedicated SSD rack mount, without removing the HDD cage to make longer cards fit.

    Looks solid, but why no dust filters at the bottom? Or they are just not attached right out of box?

    If this is sub £70, then it's a winner (winner, chicken dinner).

    Might have to get one...

    Great looking case. IMO It could use a nice window but thats just me, I love windowed cases.

    I'm curious if it supports tall CPU coolers... I have Thermalright Archon which barely fits into CM 690. So I'm looking for something wider...

    Like the fact that is has holes cut for a radiator at top. Lack of clearence for either a radiator or fans negates what I like. So.. don't like it.

    The :) -s:
    Looks like room for 8 expansion slots
    Smart idea for 2,5" cage (although who has more than 1-2 SSD-s?)
    SATA-drive dock

    The :( -s:
    No PSU dust filter
    Audio & MIC ports colored
    Not ALL cables sleeved in black
    From that picture, the front door looks really cheap and ugly

    Unknown:
    Front fans - how many and what size (120 or 140)?
    Pricing?
    Windowed version available?

    That's just an engineering sample, so they will probably add dust filters later on. Although I personally don't care (I don't like them, and remove them asap). In my opinion it's not a cons. As noted the SSD cage is a smart idea. Hope they change the audio and mic ports with metal ones, instead of the plastic. The sleeving I don't care about as well.

    P.S
    Off topic: to the editors: can you find more pictures of the "Prodigy" case. This is the only site that actually has pictured it. And it is such a cool case :)
