BitFenix Announces the Phenom and Phenom M Cases

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.

    No space for an optical drive? C'mon now, at least throw in space for a slim drive.

    Poor naming choice but these look pretty sexy. I'm only interested in building mini-ITX systems these days. There's something so nice about small form factor systems. <3

    Agree somehow with Cobra5000. But forgoing an optical drive in the mATX version is understandable enough because there's no dimension differenes between the Phenom and Phenom M.

    Would have loved to see the Optical Bay. Least the Prodigy has it.

    I love the sneaky front mounted PSU on the mATX model. Good use of space!

    I have seen some people mention that the maximum length gotta be 160 but there are also folks who say it shouldn't be a problem. can you help? thanks!

    "neither the micro-ATX Phenom or micro-ITX" I think you mean mini-ITX*, confused me for a minute.
