BitFenix BFC-PHE-300-KKXKK-RP overview

  • 1Description

The black Phenom Mini-ITX Chassis from BitFenix is designed for mini-ITX motherboards, and delivers flexibility with support for long graphics cards, tall CPU coolers, and water-cooling radiators. You can install up to six hard disks or eleven SSDs, making Phenom a suitable media server or NAS chassis, and the two high-speed USB 3.0 ports ensure quick transfers of high-definition media. The mini-ITX chassis has a powder coated interior, rolled-edge cable pass-through, and quick-release dust filters. The subtle curves coated in premium BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment offers a matte finish, while the clean and uncluttered design makes Phenom suitable for virtually any environment.

Design
The chassis has a sleek, cube design that fits in any environment. Mesh accents on the sides compliment the clean and uncluttered top, front, and side panels.
Flexibility
Phenom Mini-ITX has a flexible interior. Remove the included FlexCage and install a long graphics card of up to 12.9" in length. Thick radiators of up to 9.4" can be installed up top, and if you need more water cooling, radiators can be installed in front as well. Those who prefer air cooling, can mount tall CPU coolers of up to 6.8".
Storage Potential
With room for up to six 3.5" HDDs or eleven 2.5" SSDs, Phenom offers optimal storage capacities, making it suitable for your media server or NAS box.
Easy to Build
The mini-ITX chassis offers multiple features to make the build process easy. Tool-free drive locking mechanism allows you to install disks easily, while zones for cable management ensure a tidy build. Filtered intakes keep airborne dust on the outside, and a squeeze-to-release FlexCage quickly enables room for long graphics cards.
High-Speed USB 3.0 Connectivity
With two high speed USB 3.0 ports, you will be able to transfer files to Phenom at speeds up to ten times that of USB 2.0.

    BitFenix BFC-PHE-300-KKXKK-RP reviews

    Phenom Mini-ITX Chassis (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Case / Great price Very easy to assemble, very air-flow friendly. I installed an I7 4790 with a tower cooler, and a geforce gtx970 in this case and everything stays cool. I like that the motherboard sits horizontal because it means the video card (12.4) wont sag. If you dont have a large video card this case can hold 12 2.5 drives as well which is nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oddly Comfortable Case While it may not be as technically sound as some traditional cases in terms of airflow and cable management, the bitfenix phenom met all my needs to the letter. Some of those needs were admittedly setup specific, ie short case length and left facing front panel, but those aren't the only reasons for my choosing bitfenix. In a lot of ways, it's simply a good beginner's case. Its drive racks are removable in case of gpu clearance issues, the motherboard is mounted flat without the possibility of forgetting those brass bits that keep it from shorting on the case. Both side panels come off as well as a top opening, and the whole case feels very compartmentalized between psu housing, hdd racks, mobo stand and cable housing. As far as cons, I did mention a couple of design flaws in regards to cable management and airflow. Namely that, at stock, the front intake is blocked by hdd racks and that cables necessarily must run all over the main airways of the case. This can be mitigated by gutting the hdd racks and using only 2.5's mounted in the three slots of the side panel. Overall and again, the case was perfect for me but it surely cannot be the case for everyone. It has a large desktop footprint and poor cable layouts. The mobo is limited to mini-itx and the components are limited by size constraints. I absolutely love this case but you very well may not.
