BitFenix Phenom M & ITX Review
Up Close: Stripped
Both the top and front sections of the case pop off with a few firm tugs revealing the metal chassis underneath. Again we can see the bay cover for the legacy 5.25" bay, sitting as It does above the huge front intake grill. Again anyone familiar with the bare bones of the Prodigy chassis will be experiencing a certain sense of deja-vu about now.
The removal of the top cover affords us a better view of the roof ventilation cut out. The screw holes for 120mm fans with a 15mm spacing can be clearly seen. There appears to be enough room at either end for rad end tanks so a 240mm based water-cooling solution is well on the cards. The image below right shows the adapter plate which attaches to the 5.25" bay internally allowing an additional 3.5" or 2.5" drive to be installed.
The interior of the right hand side panel is also quite an busy area, housing as it does 2x2.5" drive trays in the plastic mesh area. It's also home to the business end of the front I/O, but as BitFenix have had enough forethought to fit all the connections with long cables there shouldn't be any drama in detaching these accidently when removing the door
