BitFenix Shinobi XL Case Review: Something is Lost in the Process

26 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Let me first come clean and say the BitFenix Shinobi XL is by no means a bad enclosure. Performance is at least reasonably competitive, and while it doesn't achieve Corsair levels of ease of assembly, it's nowhere near as difficult as some of the more elaborate Lian Li and SilverStone cases can be. People looking for a good water-cooling enclosure are definitely going to want to check it out, as the case is capable of supporting a cumulative 1080x120mm of radiators.

  • Excerpt: BitFenix is a company that over time has come up with some really great designs and additional components for cases since I have got to know them. As far as chassis design goes, the Colossus, Outlaw, Raider, Survivor and even the Shinobi were all great cases in their own right and always delivered a style that sets BitFenix apart from quite a few of the other manufacturers who just seem to be slapping together the same thing time and time again.

Bitfenix Shinobi XL Case Review

8 May 2012
  • Summary: The Bitfenix Shinobi XL is a very nice option if you are looking for a full-tower case supporting XL-ATX motherboards and are building a PC with three or four dual-slot video cards. It looks nice, and it brings all the features you are probably looking for. In our opinion, its price tag is correct for the features it brings. Of course, you can pick a more affordable case if you are not building a PC with three or four video cards.

BitFenix Shinobi XL

12 March 2012
  • Summary: The BitFenix Shinobi chassis has been a great success, spawning not only a white version, but also the ability to create your own case with a wide range of color elements and logo parts. Besides the fact, that the Shinobi XL is bigger, there is one fundamental difference though. The Shinobi is placed in a market segment where unique functionality is secondary to price. In other words: the case has to look cool and carry a good price tag.
  • Pros: Extremely roomy chassis for the size, XL-ATX support, 30+ mm space for cable routing, 360 + 360 + 240 mm radiator supported in one chassis, 4x USB 3.0 ports with USB 2.0 connectivity build into the cable, USB SuperCharge port with dedicated power delivery, HDD cage can be turned 90 degrees, Dust filter on all intakes at case underside, 5.25 to 3.5 inch adapter included, Screwless ODD and 3.5" HDD system, Plenty of zip ties and other parts to keep things clean within t...
  • Cons: Loose HDD trays - ones with 2.5 inch drives cannot be secured properly, ODD locking mechanism still leaves some wiggle room, When using all spots for radiators, you will be left with only two 5.25 inch bays, Air flow of front fan limited due to design, Lacks of functional features like hot-swap bay or fan controller

BitFenix Shinobi XL Case

7 September 2014
  • Summary: I must admit to falling for the BitFenix Shinobi XL, maybe that’s because I’m a bit of a sucker for full tower, white cases with massive amounts of room inside making your build nice and easy, whilst proving great water cooling support! Yes, I rather like the Shinobi XL, I like the styling, it’s simple yet elegant with that black mesh strip on the front and top helping to lift the case into the premium category.
