BitFenix Raider Mid Tower Case Review - YouTube

Hi Guys! Just recently, Hardware Canucks reviewed the BitFenix Raider. I'd like to give 2 people the opportunity to test and review one of these Raiders out as well! We've gotten a couple of gold awards out there and we (most importantly!) would like to hear more from our fans.

In addition to the video review we would like to give 2 lucky members of the Hardware Canucks community the chance to test the Raider first hand and share their experiences on the Raider with the rest of the community.

Please post below answering "Why do you want to be the one that will be receiving the Raider?"

I'll close off the entries at Monday 23rd at 1AM PST.

I would like to receive one for review because i have been eyeing bitfenix cases for quite some time, wanting to try out the shinobi at first. The raider looks like a case I would like, and always wanted to feel that SofTouch surface.

I've recently been writing reviews and putting them up on my own site and have been starting on making youtube video unboxings and reviews. Having something like the BitFenix Raider to unbox and review would be a great stepping stone for me.

Honestly, Id like to start doing reviews, but don't want to have to fork over a bunch of money for products. Its a cheaper case with a decent amount of modding potential. Cases make great review items :D

"Why do you want to be the one that will be receiving the Raider?"
Being that for the last 10 years building systems and currently building a new one I am particular in what I expect from a case in terms of cooling, layout and ease of use from opening the case to installing hardware to cable managing it. I have fairly high standards but i a case is a good one I am always one to recommend it.

I would like a case because.......................hmm..........I need one!

I have a gpu (Evga GTX560Ti2WIN) folder currently in a tech station and will be adding another gpu (probably GTX 580) to it. This BitFenix case set up would allow me to evaluate the fit of large video cards, airflow within the case and general assembly scenarios.

Given the experience with Mid-towers in the past coupled with the direct comparision I can provide with current models on the market (as I have those towers ready at home) I think I would make a good candidate to do a review on the New case.

Love the look of this case...would like to see if this is just all show and no go? or simply awesome like other higher end Bitfenix cases I've had the chance to work with!

I'm not interested in a review model but I have to say I'm pleased with Bitfenix products. I have some Spectre Pros, power cables and a Bitfenix Outlaw, all of which are excellent.

Once Bitfenix makes silenced/sound dampened cases you can expect the below from me;

I wanna be the guy.... because

a) I love the Phoenix. I am called Phoenix. You are called Fenix. It just makes sense.
b) I like tinkering with new things. I like talking about my opinion of new things.
c) I could use a slick new case! :D
