BitFenix Reaffirms SuperCharge Technology

Another innovation from the BitFenix Design Lab, BitFenix SuperCharge Technology offers a convenient and quick way to charge mobile devices right from your PC. Recently, similar solutions introduced by competitors have begun making their way into the market, sometimes with hazardous results. In fact, a recent case led to a wire catching on fire during normal operation. Today, BitFenix is reaffirming SuperCharge technology as a quick, easy and safe way to charge today's mobile devices.

BitFenix Unleashes Prodigy

Today, BitFenix is proud to launch its latest creation - Prodigy. The first mini-ITX chassis designed with enthusiasts in mind, Prodigy is set to turn the mini-ITX chassis market on its head. With support for long graphics cards, tower coolers, and even watercooling radiators, Prodigy offers unparalleled flexibility in a compact Mini-ITX form factor.

"The wave of enthusiast class mini-ITX motherboards is upon us, and with Prodigy, users finally have a case to match," says BitFenix Product Manager David Jarlestedt. "No longer will users have to choose between compact size and blazing performance. With Prodigy, mini-ITX users can finally have it all."

BitFenix Launches the Recon and Hydra Pro Fan Controllers

BitFenix is proud to introduce two brand new fan controllers designed to put the user in the driver's seat - Recon and Hydra Pro. Recon is the world's first Internet-connected fan controller, offering total control even on the go. Hydra Pro delivers powerful 30 W per channel performance and, when combined with BitFenix Spectre and Spectre Pro LED fans, convenient push-button LED on/off functionality.

"Users have been clamoring for these two devices for a while now, and I'm proud to report that the wait is finally over," says BitFenix Product Manager David Jarlestedt. "With Recon and Hydra Pro, BitFenix once again takes our disruptive ideas and brings them into a new design space - fan controllers. Offering never-before-seen functionality at competitive price points, Recon and Hydra Pro are set to become the go-to thermal control devices for enthusiasts the world over."

BitFenix Prodigy Pictured with Hardware Installed

Here are the first pictures of BitFenix Prodigy with compatible hardware installed. These pictures show that despite being designed for compact motherboard form-factors such as the mini-ITX, the Prodigy has plenty of room for a long graphics card (even the likes of Radeon HD 6990 will fit), and water-cooling hardware such as a 2x 120 mm radiator, pump, tubing, to support water-cooling of both the CPU and graphics card installed. Regardless, there's still room for large-sized tower-type CPU air cooler and dual-slot graphics card cooler, as the pictures below reveal.

BitFenix Ghost Mid-Tower Chassis Seen from More Angles

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.

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.

BitFenix Announces Spectre Pro Fan Series

With the release of the venerable Spectre Silent Fan Series in August 2010, enthusiast hardware designer BitFenix proved its engineering prowess in the case cooling space. Today, BitFenix ups the ante with the Spectre Pro Performance Fan Series. By combining innovative features and a fresh new design aesthetic, the Spectre Pro Performance Fan Series represents the new gold standard in case cooling fans.

"After we released the Spectre Series last year, users looking primarily for a silent build were floored at just how good silent fans can be," says BitFenix Product Manager David Jarlestedt. "Now with the many unique features and design elements that we've implemented into Spectre Pro, I believe that the performance crowd is going to be even more impressed."

BitFenix Announces Shinobi Germany Edition Mid-Tower Case

The case specialist BitFenix is now offering the latest version of the Shinobi chassis as the exclusive GERMANY Edition. As the name implies, the chassis takes its inspiration from the German flag, featuring an all black frame, red mesh stripes and a golden logo.

Who does not remember the ocean of flags during the Soccer World Cups in 2006 and 2010 during which the cars and cities were plastered with the many colours of all the participating countries. The reason why BitFenix has chosen to name this chassis the way it did should be obvious, as the case features the three colours of the German flag.

BitFenix Shinobi ATX Mid-Tower Case Displayed

European PC components retailer Caseking.de posted an early video preview of BitFenix' next case, the Shinobi. This is an ATX Mid-Tower that looks to be positioned to hit a price sweetspot, and focuses on squeezing in the most in terms of features.

Ventilation includes two 120 mm intakes in the front, a 120 mm side-panel intake, a 120 mm rear exhaust, and two 120 mm on top. Of these, fans are included for one front intake and one on the rear. Dust filters are in place for the front intakes and the PSU's intake at the bottom. The side panel sports a triangular window, while the rear features holes for water tubing.

BitFenix Unleashes Colossus Venom and Window

Today, BitFenix released the Colossus Venom and Colossus Window, two new variants of its award-winning Colossus enthusiast full tower PC chassis. "After releasing Colossus, BitFenix fans from around the world offered their own personal suggestions on some new and interesting modifications for the full tower, and Colossus Venom and Colossus Window are the results of that feedback," says David Jarlestedt, BitFenix Product Manager. "With Colossus Venom and Colossus Window, we hope to appeal to an even broader number of users by offering a wider selection of chassis based on a proven design."

At this past Gamescom 2010, BitFenix demoed a Colossus with eerie green LED lighting, a striking design that turned many heads at Europe's largest video gaming show. After a flood of user emails asking if a green variant would be offered for sale, BitFenix decided to make it happen with Colossus Venom Edition. Colossus Venom Edition uses the same design as the original Colossus, but allows users to select between green or red lighting at the push of a button. This new color choice gives Colossus Venom Edition an ominous new look, perfect for intimidating the competition during late-night gaming sessions. Of course, all the original Colossus features have been retained, such as the proprietary BitFenix SofTouch coating, BitFenix S3 Storage Compartment, and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, making Colossus Venom Edition the perfect chassis for the hardcore gaming enthusiast.

BitFenix Design Lab Officially Announces the Survivor Chassis

Today, BitFenix is pleased to launch Survivor - a mid-tower ATX gaming chassis that combines elegant styling with ruggedized features engineered for the mobile digital warrior.

"Will you be able to throw it in front of a moving bus or down the stairs? No, but you won't have to worry about damaged hardware while driving to your friend's house or LAN party".

The unique curved design of Survivor isn't simply aesthetic. Extending past the side panels, this design helps to protect Survivor and the hardware inside during transport. The front, top and bottom of Survivor is coated with proprietary BitFenix SofTouch surface treatment, which helps protect these surfaces from stains and scratches, all while looking great. On the very front above the ODD bays is an LED-lit BitFenix logo, which users can turn on and off at a press of a button.

The LED lighting system adorning the front door and side panels provide even lighting for a stunning look, and users can select either red or blue lighting with the touch of a button. The lighting also has three selectable modes, including on, pulse, and off, giving users complete control over the ambience of their computing environment.

Bitfenix Jumps into the Scene with Two ATX Cases

PC case maker Bitfenix launched itself amidst quite some talk from the media. At the Computex event, it showed off two of its first products, the Colossus and Survivor. The Colossus is an ATX full-tower that marks a return to silvery-white On its exterior it sports wavy grooves that light up. The Front panel opens up as a door to reveal the five 5.25" drive bays, and front air-intakes. Common utilities such as front panel audio, USB and eSATA ports are right above the drive bays, though an additional set of USB ports are present in its top compartment. The top-compartment is a chamber that has a combi-lock protected lid. It has two USB ports inside, and can securely hold (and charge) devices such as smartphones, PMPs, and pocket-hard drives, which is of nice use in LAN parties. Grooves in the front-panel channel cables connected to front ports, and well as inside the secure chamber.

Internally the Colossus features an all-white interior, with seven 3.5"/2.5" drive bays, a motherboard tray that can hold EATX, ATX, m-ATX motherboards, and has 8 expansion bays, so a graphics card seated in the 7th expansion slot of a motherboard has room for its double-slot cooler. Ventilation includes front and top 140 mm fans, and a rear 120 mm fan, with four holes for water tubing. The next case, Survivor, is an all-black ATX mid-tower that has a strong frame, and an exterior that makes use of rubber and polycarbonate. The Rubber layers serve two purposes: noise dampening, and absorbing shocks in rough-handling during transportation. It has just three 5.25" drive bays, six 3.5/2.5" bays, and a front-panel located on the top, under a flap, with four USB, eSATA, and audio connectors.
