Long graphics card can lurk in the Shadow
BitFenix is adding a new case to its lineup that will be available to purchase in the fall. It's the Shadow, and like several other BitFenix enclosures, it features the company's SoftTouch surface treatment. The Shadow is a mid-tower chassis measuring 190mm (W) by 440mm (H) x 506mm (D), or 7.4 inches by 17.3 inches by 19.9 inches with support for ATX, micro ATX, and mini ITX motherboards.
The Shadow is supposed to represent a trifecta of style, functionality, and value. It has a magnetic door that hides away three 5.25-inch optical drive bays. On the bottom of the door is an LED accent that can glow blue or red, or you can turn it off with the press of a button on the I/O panel.
Other features in the Shadow include support for up to seven 3.5-inch drives, a single 2.5-inch drive bay, USB 3.0 support, and seven PCI slots. The case can fit graphics cards up to 320mm (12.59 inches) in length and CPU coolers up to 165mm (6.49 inches) in height.
Cooling is handled by four 120mm fan locations, including two in the front, one on the bottom, and one in the rear. Two 120mm Spectre fans come pre-installed.
The Shadow will be available in October. No word yet on price.
