BitFenix' Comrade is cheap and functional.
BitFenix has announced its new Comrade lineup of enclosures, which are designed to cater to an audience that's building a PC on a budget, but still wants a couple of high-end features. As such, the case is able to house a lot of high-end hardware, and features dust filters as well as a USB 3.0 port.
The case is able to house up to ATX motherboards, graphics cards up to 300 mm long, and CPU coolers that are as high as 160 mm tall. There is room inside for up to three 3.5" drives, another three 25" drives, as well as, you guessed it, three optical drives.
Cooling is handled by slots for three 120 mm fans, two up front and one as a rear exhaust. Just one fan is included as a standard kit, and it comes mounted in the rear exhaust slot.
Front I/O connectivity is achieved by one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, as well as HD audio jacks.
The BitFenix Comrade case will come in multiple colors and features an MSRP of $39.
