Excerpt: Bitfenix has gained popularity among PC builders, watercooling enthusiasts with its finely crafted PC chassis. Each and every Bitfenix chassis has a striking and unique appearance of its own that makes Bitfenix stands out in the PC Chassis market.
Conclusion: The BitFenix Ronin delivers excellent build quality and a very classy, functional design. The interior is roomy enough for extra-long multi-GPU configurations, has ample storage room and great support for watercooling.

Pros: Cool internal cover for a beautiful system, Updated hard-drive cages for even easier to install 3.5" drives, Tool-less 5.25" bays, Very good cable-hiding possibilities., Two retail Spectre fans included, Black cables everywhere—even the fan leads are black, 5.25" to 3.5" adapter included, Great w...
Cons: Tool-less 5.25" bays do not hold well, Front and top air vents are restrictive, Front dust filters not easily removable, Bottom dust filter could come off during transport, No color choices yet
