BitFenix Shinobi Window review

At the bottom side we can see the mounting area for the PSU, underneath it a ventilation mesh, which again has dust protection with the help of a filter. On top of it you can install a any regular PS2 ATX (bottom, multi direction) power supply.
That dust filter can be easily removed by simply gliding it out and then be cleaned.
Mounting a HDD is fairly easy but a little unhandy. Take two drive bay bracket mounts, clip them onto your HDD. Now both side panels of the chassis need to come off.
Once you slide in the HDD you rotate the button locking the HDD into position.
BitFenix recently released an extension to the original model, the Shinobi "Window" edition chassis. An affordable yet elegant chassis solution. Tagged with a 69 USD price tag this chassis is locked and loaded as mid-tower case with its crosshair aimed at gamers. While the regular Shinobi has a solid steel side panel and one 120mm fan, the Shinobi Window is a little more advanced and offers a tinted side window as well as an extra 120mm fan and tool-free drive locking mechanisms.
