An updated design on the original Survivor, BitFenix’s new mid-size tower is lightweight, rugged, and affordable, perfect for a portable gaming rig.
The case is cool and simple in appearance, but well-executed: solid white SofTouch finish with a blue LED BitFenix logo across the front of the chassis, and the unique curved design of the case helps protect hardware from minor impacts. It also comes equipped with on/off controls for the LED logo, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, a removable HDD cage wall to accomodate longer graphics cards, seven PCI slots and bays for up to seven 3.5″ or nine 2.5″ hard disks. It can also accomodate up to two 200mm fans or three 120mm fans to make sure everything stays just as cool as the case looks.
Full press release follows:
(BitFenix Design Lab, November 27, 2012) – Today, BitFenix is pleased to introduce Survivor White – a portable mid-tower ATX gaming chassis in a new white color that combines elegant styling with ruggedized features engineered for the mobile digital warrior.
In continuation with our latest white accessories such as the Recon™ fan controller and Spectre Pro™ LED fans, Survivor White blends elegant aesthetics with high performance.
Like the classic Survivor, the case maintains all of its classic aesthetics including the uniquely curved design that helps to protect Survivor White and the hardware inside during transportation. Proprietary BitFenix SofTouch™ surface treatment helps protect it from stains and scratches, while the Blue LED BitFenix logo adorning the front of the case offers a subtle look that users can turn also on and off at a press of a button.
Sliding open the stealthy I/O panel the cover open reveals the LED on/off controls compatible with BitFenix Spectre™ LED fan light and Spectre Pro™, audio jacks, power and reset buttons, an eSATA port, two USB 2.0 ports, and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports.
Survivor White features a hideaway carry handle that locks into place when you need mobility, and easily folds down when you don’t. The removable hard drive cage accommodates extra-long graphics when removed or up to seven 2.5” SSD drives or six 3.5” hard disks when intact. And to keep things cool, space for up to two 200mm fans or three 120mm fans is included as well.
Survivor White also includes the BitFenix S2™ peripheral security and cable management device to keep your peripherals under lock and key. The CPU cooler cutout on the motherboard tray makes changing coolers a breeze, and specially-designed motherboard standoffs, internal cable management, and a tool-free design are a godsend for PC do-it-yourselfers. Finally, the included dust filters on all air intakes help keep Survivor clean on the inside.
Survivor White will be available on retail shelves at the end of November for a suggested retail price of 99€ (incl. 19% VAT) and $109.
