BitFenix Neos Review

Stripped

Stripping the Neos involves little more than tugging off the front panel.  As the front I/O is attacehed to the chassis itself there are no concerns regarding pulling cables though.  With the front removed we can see that although there are no fans fitted in the front of the case, the Neos can accept two 120mm fans and even has a removable clip on dust filter.  Getting down to the bare chassis also confirms our thoughts that the Neos shares its origins with the Comrade.  This isn't intended as a criticism, far from it, the sharing of a chassis between models is something that has gone on from the very beginning, and is one of the main ways kit manufacturers are able to keep costs down.

Turning to the front panel itself we get a better view of the fan intake and 5.25" drive area.  This front panel is well build and well put together.

If you're a modder you've probably already noticed this, but just in case, we thought we'd draw your attention more particularly towards an interesting feature.  What? you might ask.  Well the entire front mesh panel and drive covers are held in place by simple bent tabs.  What this means is that should the great variety of colours offered by BitFenix not suite you it would be the work of minutes to pop the front mesh off and re style it in a colour of your own choosing.

Not bad budget case. I have made a look around at 30-35 pound cases and I see that 4 or 5 manufacture use the same bone. Just the outfit differs from each other. It will sold by its colour themes. Quote

Not bad for £30, shame it doesn't have AIO support in the roof though. Would of made it that little bit better and given people more of a reason to buy it over the competition if it did.

Still a good little case though, it does the job Quote

I was rather impressed by it for the price, but the shear lack of cable space and tie points behind the mobo just cripples it in my book.

EDIT: completely understand Guv, reviews and preparing for i52 busy busy busy.Quote
