BitFenix Ronin Review

 BitFenix Ronin Review  



The term Ronin is most commonly used to describe the Samurai Warrior who, whether through the death of his master or his own dishonour finds himself a free agent.  In modern japan however it can also be used to describe a professional who is between jobs or a High school graduate who has yet to start University.  And what better way to spend that glorious free time than gaming away until the wee small hours. 

On the face of it there’s little to differentiate the Ronin from the plethora of other smallish ATX cases on the market.  The Ronin though does have a few features that cause it to stand out just that little bit from the crowd, Although not entirely unique, the Ronin does provide native water cooling support in the roof, along with an innovative stealth panel that fits just inside the windowed side panel, but more of this later, for now lets have a look at the spec sheet and see if the Ronin’s vital statistics are pleasing to the eye.
