XFX Introduces Type 1 Bravo PC Chassis

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 14 comments

XFX has introduced its first PC gaming enclosure.

XFX has decided to build its first gaming PC chassis and is naming it the Type 1 Bravo. The chassis is an ATX mid-tower type enclosure.

The case has room for up to three 5.25" optical drives, as well as up to eight 2.5" or 3.5" drives. Inside you'll also fit up to four dual-slot graphics cards thanks to eight expansion slots that can all be viewed through the side-panel window. The case can also house 140 mm fans as exhaust, which come pre-installed, as well as in the bottom. Up front, a 200 mm fan comes mounted as standard kit, though this can be replaced by a pair of 120 mm fans. Top exhaust can support either a single 200 mm fan or any size between 90 mm and 140 mm.

Front I/O is handled by a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, as well as HD audio jacks.

To carry all this hardware, the chassis measures 518 x 232 x 222 x 562 mm and weighs 10.4 kg due to being made of 0.7 mm SECC steel, 3.0 mm thick aluminum, and ABS plastic.

XFX has opted to grant buyers of the Type 1 Bravo a five year manufacturer warranty and has priced the case at $129.99.

    Looks like an excellent first take at a chassis :-)Also, that's pretty big for a mid-tower, unless I'm mistaken

    PSU under the case is now a norm, It makes sense since most or all of new PSU now has its fan under it.

    Nice case. But for $130? Sorry, NZXT and Corsair make far nicer stuff at that price. Not even a 5 year warranty (on what, on a metal box? :D ) will convince me.

    My NZXT Phantom has that too. It's very convenient since the tower is on the floor. I'd be much more annoyed with horizontal-faced ports.

    Cool, something else you'll never get your rebate for.

    Looks OK but it does not look like it can support my 360mm rad so it is a no go for me.
