BitFenix Announces Phenom Case for Small Form Factor Builds

A case Q-Bert would have loved

If you're a fan of cube shaped computer cases, you should take a look at the new Phenom line by BitFenix . The case maker says its Phenom cases sport a "sleek modern cube design" intended to blend into just about any environment, whether it's at the office or home in the living room. Outside of the cube shaped styling, there are two case options, one for mini-ITX builds and the other for micro-ATX configurations.

Don't be fooled by the small size. The mini-ITX variant has enough room for a thick radiator up to 240mm in length, BitFenix says. It also has a FlexCage that can store up to five 3.5-inch hard drives or solid state drives, or remove it entirely so you can squeeze a long graphics card up to 330mm in length or additional water cooling on the front panel.

Along with the 5.25-inch drive adapter and additional mounts on the side panel and PSU case, Phenom can fit up to half a dozen 3.5-inch HDs or 11 SSDs. There are also five fan locations and room for a tower CPU up to 175mm high.

The micro-ATX version has five PCI slots and can accommodate dual graphics cards in SLI or CrossFire. Like the other Phenom, it's water cooling friendly and has ample room for hard drives and SSDs.

Both cases will be available in October . No word yet on price.
