BitFenix has been hard at work moving their case designs to the next level. Following the current trend they helped start which included signature cases like the BitFenix Prodigy, they are continuing with function focused, flexible, minimalist designs with a new series. BitFenix is now ready to unleash the Ronin.
BitFenix's new Ronin is a clean, modern design that focuses on function rather than over the top styling. Returning is their signature SofTouch Surface Treatment that extends to the top as well as the front panel. This aids in grip and provides a nice matte finish at the same time. Maintaining their focus on DIY friendly case design, the Ronin has a "FlexCage" design with support for up to six 3.5" or 2.5" drives or a graphics card up to 16.5 inches (420 mm).
The well ventilated case has room for four 120 mm fans and two 140 mm fans. The top is also designed for an internal cooling loop with a 240 mm radiator. The Ronin will also come with two 120 mm Spectre fans pre-installed. New to BitFenix, the Ronin will also sport a Stealth Cover which allows you to hide common cable paths like the ones from PSU, HDDs, and ODD for a cleaner look which you'll be able to see through the extra-large side window.
The Ronin will be available in mid-July. There is currently no price listed, but I am sure this information will be available soon. We will update you once we know more.

BitFenix Unveils Ronin
Latest BitFenix case design brings enhanced cooling capabilities and unmatched aesthetics
June 27, 2013 – Known for its signature clean yet modern designs, premier PC hardware designer BitFenix is proud to reveal its latest ATX chassis creation - Ronin. Featuring enhanced cooling capabilities, DIY friendly features, unique styling, and legendary BitFenix quality, Ronin represents a next-level chassis design that shows your opponents no mercy.
Modern, stylish, and clean, with a menacing all-black finish, Ronin is the epitome of BitFenix design. The top and front panels, coated in BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment for excellent stain resistance and quality feel, are bordered by micro-mesh strips that not only perfectly compliment the matte black exterior, but also act as additional ventilation.
Moving to the side panel, users are greeted by a massive see-through acrylic window that allows enthusiasts to clearly see their hardware payload. Here, BitFenix innovates yet again with the Stealth Cover – an easy to install panel that effectively covers up optical drives, hard disks, power supply, and cabling for a clean and tidy look. The Stealth Cover, adorned in a micro-texture finish, looks incredible on its own, and enables an incredibly clean-looking build even for the most novice builders.
But the beauty of Ronin goes much beyond the surface. On top, Ronin accommodates two 140 mm fans or water cooling radiators up to 240 mm in length. Combined with two 120 mm fan locations in front, one on the bottom, and one on the back panel, Ronin offers tremendous cooling potential for air and water cooling enthusiasts alike. The included FlexCage™ is modular and removable, enabling direct airflow to the hottest hardware while allowing enough room for graphics cards up to 420 mm in length. Add to that two included 120 mm Spectre™ fans and space for up to six 3.5" hard disks or 2.5" SSDs, and Ronin makes a killer base for virtually any high-powered rig.
The road to vengeance can be a long one. To get you into battle as quickly as possible, Ronin comes fully loaded with a plethora of DIY friendly features. Tool-free drive locking mechanisms make securing drives a snap, while plenty of cable management locations enable a clean and tidy build. The large CPU cutout enables swapping of CPU coolers without removing the motherboard, while filtered front intakes and a magnetic bottom filter keeps your system looking good, even on the inside.
And like any BitFenix product, Ronin is made with the same attention to detail and stringent quality checks that BitFenix fans have grown to know and love. With features like the fully coated black interior and all-black cabling, to the brushed aluminum BitFenix logo and mesh PCI slot covers, Ronin exemplifies the BitFenix experience.
BitFenix Ronin will be available on store shelves beginning mid July.
