BitFenix Phenom cases reviewed at ComputerBase

Review ( in Googlish here).

Conclusion: Well built cases with some odd design decisions, the biggest being the shipped fan configuration of two 120mm fans. The mini-ITX can handle up to a 230mm fan in front, and 140mm in the rear. The mATX is similar, 230mm on bottom, 140mm in back. Net result is quiet operation at 5V, but horrendous temps.
1080p Gaming build: i5-4670K, Mugen 4, Asrock Z97 Anniversary, MSI GTX 1660 Gaming X, 8GB 1866 RAM, Samsung 860 Evo 500GB, Crucial MX100 256GB, WD Red 2TB, Samsung DVD burner, Fractal Define R4, Antec True Quiet 140 (2 front + rear) case fans, Seasonic SSR-550FX. 35W idle, 45-55W video streaming, 170-200W WoW, 318W stress test (Prime95 + Furmark)
