    Default Bitfenix Comrade Case Review

    Introduction New APU systems are becoming more popular allowing builders and enthusiasts to build more high demanding systems on a budget. Why not put non-budget builds in a budget minded case? Bitfenix has given us the opportunity to take a look at their Comrade case, and not just one but two! These cases were designed strictly for budget builds; while they don’t offer the opportunity for major expansions or the room for a high end system, they can still hold up to 6 hard drives and support graphic cards up to 30cm in length. During our test builds, we’ll be building a low end APU system as well as stuffing a “Gamers dream PC” into these cases to determine just how much we can get away with. Before we get started filling up these cases, let’s take a closer look at the build quality and features we have to work with. Focused on combining superior design with the latest advances in technology, BitFenix creates state-of-the-art computer hardware and peripherals that blur the line between man and machine. Users shouldn’t have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for. In the heat of battle, the user should not have to worry about the state of his equipment, which is why BitFenix products are engineered to perform under even the most extreme conditions. No matter how taxing the situation, users can rely on the strength of BitFenix products to perform as they are intended. Finally, BitFenix is about performance. In the top levels of competition, the difference between first and second place can be razor-thin, which means that every advantage counts. BitFenix is about making high-performing products that give users an edge.

    This case really has some nice features and touches that you wouldn't expect at that price point, and it is definitely one of, if not the, best looking cases I have ever seen in that price point.

    Good review Joe. Nice budget case, lack of side window is -1, but you can always cut (mode), one if you need it IMO.

    Always look beyond the limits...
