BitFenix has launched its new range of Phenom enclosures which are constructed from the company’s patented SofTouch steel and forgo the 5.25-inch optical drive bay for increased internal space.
Unlike many other compact enclosures, neither the micro-ATX Phenom or micro-ITX Phenom M have made any sacrifices in the cooling department by providing support for water-cooling radiators of up to 240 mm (top) and 120 mm (rear), two pre-installed 120 mm Spectre fans with anti-dust filters, and the ability to mount two additional 120 mm fans on the top and either a single 230 mm or two 120 mm fans on the bottom.
