PC Chassis manufacturer BitFenix has launched its new Ronin mid-tower ATX case. It will be available in July and carries a clean matte black aesthetic with many of the useful features that enthusiasts expect to see in today’s cases.

The BitFenix Ronin measures 270 x 560 x 530mm (approximately 10.6 x 22 x 20.9-inches), and is constructed of steel and plastic. BitFenix uses its “SoftTouch” micro texture surface treatment to give the matte black exterior a unique look and feel. The exterior is all matte black with an acrylic side window. A mesh design is used along the top and front panels, and aids in ventilation. The case uses rounded corners. The front panel IO is actually on the top-front of the case and includes two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and two audio ports along with the requisite power button. Other than that, the case is rather simplistic in design, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

The case can accommodate ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards. Internal features include tool-less drive cages, filtered front and bottom intake fan filters, cable management and CPU backplate cut-outs, water cooling grommets, and a bottom mounted power supply. BitFenix is also offering a piece of material that will cover up the PSU and drive cages to hide the drives and cables from the side window view.

The case can host up to three 5.25” drives and six 2.5” or 3.5” hard drives. There are 7 PCI slots and plenty of ventilation spots for fans. Specifically, cooling options include two bundled 120mm Spectre fans. Users can further expand the air cooling by adding the following fan(s).

  • Top: 2 x 140mm
  • Front: 2 x 120mm
  • Bottom: 1 x 120mm
  • Rear: 1 x 120mm

Further, when removing a drive bay, users can use up to 420mm long graphics cards.

The BitFenix Ronin will be available next month for an as-yet-announced price. For reference, it's model number is BFC-RON-300-KKWSK-RP. More information can be found here.

I don't know why they keep putting USB 2 ports on new cases!

I love how the connectors are on the top of the case. I still use my optical drives a lot, and the cables coming out of the USB and headphone ports can sometimes get in the way of the door closing.
