BitFenix Shinobi XL Review Comment Thread
 
BitFenix's new Shinobi XL takes the design of the original, highly acclaimed Shinobi case and supersizes it. The result is a full tower case that incorporates plenty of cooling options, a soft-touch rubberized exterior, ton of interior space and many other features for gamers and enthusiasts alike.

Did I read the review right and it says the case does not include a window??? I have 3 Shinobi XL Windowed cases at the moment they all cost $10 more with the window.

Great review though even if I disagree with how complicated it is to remove the HDD bracket as it now takes my tech team less then 2 minutes to remove each one and install the hdd into the awesomely provided 5.25 to 3.5/2.5" HDD adapter.

Its a great case have to agree with the air movement but something feels lacking about the review would of loved to see more examples of how the fans/water cooling would fit in the case as I get that question a lot and have personally built over 20 towers with that case.

Great review guys keep up the awesome work :)

i will ask this again...instead of telling us a radiator could fit why not show us?

then if there are any issues he could address them instead of frantically googling what rads in what combos fit...

other than that nice review!:thumb:

Actually, we meant that we weren't reviewing the side window version. I will update accordingly now.

The issue you bring up is more complicated than you realize. We can never cover every rad thickness / layout. No matter what, you'll likely find yourself Googling anyways...

Happy to hear that :) but I feel your awesome reviewers could of covered the case far more in depth a case is not a GPU,MOBO,or any other component that requires hours of testing so it should free up lots of time to get to nitty gritty and show the fans everything it perfects and fails on.

I agree with you there but using common parts like a standard EK 360 and 240 for the top and front cover a lot of bases and better showing how awesome that case does cable management would of been awesome. Then again I am not a awesome reviewer like you I am more a N00B so I could be missing something :ph34r:

I believe that your video reviews are one of the best reviews on the web! Frankly!

May I ask you some questions about the camera model, and 360' spin technique you use?
