Conclusion: Although initially the Ghost didn't really impress us (perhaps because we thought it would be a high-end PC case) in the end it does come with quite a few interesting features that make it a very good overall choice for people on a rather tight budget. It has a satisfactory build quality level (it could however be better), there's plenty of room for an 240mm radiator at the top, it has room for a total of up to 6 fans (comes with two pre-installed ones), the Serenitek...
Pros: - Design, - Top 240mm Radiator Spot, - Up To 6 Fans, - Two Pre-installed Fans, - Adjustable Door, - Serenitek Noise-Dampening Material, - S4 Top Docking Station, - Interior Space (CPU Coolers & Graphics Cards), - Price (For Some)
Excerpt: As I sit back and try to think of the cases I have seen that are specifically designed with silence of operation in mind, only a handful or less really stick out. Think about that for a minute. Out of all the cases I have seen in my time with TweakTown, there have been maybe ten entries to this segment.
Summary: The BitFenix Ghost has many of the hallmarks of a good quiet case: Reasonably sturdy construction, thick dampening foam, and indirect intake vents on the front door. Ironically, its very quiet fans are a bit of a detriment: They don't spin fast enough or there simply aren't enough of them. The fans are great for users who want a quiet out-of-the-box experience with a minimalist system.
BitFenix Ghost Case Review: Begging for the Premium Treatment
10 November 2012
Conclusion: Reviewing the BitFenix Ghost, I'm left with strangely mixed feelings. Every so often a case comes through that I very much want to see succeed, and the Ghost is one of those. If you've been keeping up with my reviews you've seen that I've championed BitFenix pretty hard in the past, and the Ghost was another design that I felt was encroaching on a kind of sweet spot between price, performance, aesthetic, features, and ease of use.
Summary: If you want to buy a mid-tower case with dampening panels, the Bitfenix is a very good choice for its price. There are products in this category that probably will make your computer generate a lower noise level, but you will have to spend a lot more.
Excerpt: 6 Flares 6 Flares × The BitFenix Ghost is a mid-range chassis, designed with gamers in mind. Bitfenix claim that not all gamers are willing to deal with excessive fan noise so they have attempted to design a chassis with minimal noise characteristics.
Excerpt: In the relatively short time that BitFenix have been in the marketplace they have carved out something of a name for themselves. They are particularly well known for innovative design and build quality. With thir new case, the "Ghost" Bitfenix try their hand at something a little more traditional. Eschewing the big windows and bold sweeps of the styling brush in favour of sleek looks and hopefully silent performance.
