    BitFenix Raider Mid-Tower Chassis Review

    Recently BitFenix sent us a conspicuous looking box with the word Raider emblazoned on the side. According to Merriam-Webster the definition of Raider is as follows: one that raids, a: a fast lightly armed ship operating against merchant shipping, b: a soldier specially trained for close range fighting, c: one that attempts a usually hostile takeover of a business corporation. Given the definition of Raider, I was very much looking forward to giving this case a good look over, and if true to past BitFenix chassis offerings I will not be disappointed.

    Nice review, and thanks. BitFenix seems to be coming on as a decent design house over the last couple of years. That case coating has me intrigued. Seems to be a decent way to handle multiple issues; besides being tasty it may even provide a tad of noise/vibration dampening?

    I have to say that this case coupled with a soon to be posted review of Spectre Pro fans and the current Sprectre fans inside is completely silent! To me it amazes me because I am soooo used to using Deltas or another fan that I can hear on all settings. At first the lack of noise was unsettling to me.

    Very nice review, well done!
    Quite a case for $99, too.

    I need to find myself an epic landscape for taking case photos.

    EDIT:
    Also, rofl at the lick and disclaimer. Hilarious

    Thank you Sir I had to put the disclaimer in, if I hadn't you never know what could happen.... I can hear it now "Well that capttripppp feller said he licked his case so I thought I might just lick my (fill in the blank)" Next thing you know his computer is toast, or he is a crispy critter or something crazy along those lines.
