Conclusion: I would like to thank BitFenix for sending the Outlaw in for review and look forward to maybe seeing an updated version of it, or whatever else they may come out with next.
Pros: - BitFenix SoftTouch adds a nice look to the front,
- Plenty of room for longer GPUs,
- Good Thermal Performance
Cons: - Inverted motherboard tray may leave some of your hardware's logos upside down and cause cablemanagement issues,
- No pass-thru holes to connect wires to the bottom of motherboard,
- No room for cables behind the motherboard tray itself
The BitFenix Outlaw - A Different Take at Entry-level
1 April 2012
Excerpt: BitFenix challenges the commonly held notion that entry-level means barebones. Their new Outlaw mid-tower casing boasts a few unusual features including an inverted motherboard design and SofTouch surface treatment so read on to see if this is something for your next rig.
Pros: Cavernous interior; can accommodate large graphics cards, Able to install numerous cooling fans, SofTouch surface treatment on front panel
Cons: Lots of thumbscrews required to install drives, Bash out expansion slot covers, No dust filters for cooling fans, Only 1 exhaust fan supplied out of the box
Summary: The BitFenix Outlaw is a PC builder's chassis. The design, style, and overall appeal is firmly directed toward those building a PC on a budget. With the exception of a few minor issues, it is a well designed, sleek case that is absolute joy to work with.
Pros: Easy to Work, Soft-Touch Feels Great, Four USB Ports on Front I/O, Very well Ventilated, Reverse ATX design allows large GPUs to Fit in this Mid-tower
Cons: Lose of one 5.25” bay when using a long GPU and/or two front 120 mm fans, Thumbscrews can be Mixed Up, No dust Filters, No USB 3.0, Can Only Use One SSD, Only One Included Fan
