BitFenix Ghost Chassis Review

The BitFenix Ghost is designed with simplicity in mind. The sleek black look is smart but not very dramatic for gamers who like a more colourful approach.

The front of the chassis is hinged so the drive bays are hidden from sight, leaving us with only the BitFenix logo in silver.

On top, we have 2 x USB 2.0 and 2 x USB 3.0 ports, as well as Headphone and Microphone sockets and Power/Reset switches. There is also a Power LED and a HDD activity LED.

The sides of the chassis are a sleek black but leave no trace of fingerprints. The plastic trim on the top and bottom of the chassis is hardly distinguishable thanks to the BitFenix ‘NanoChrome Surface Treatment'.

The back of the chassis features 3 watercooling holes, as well as 7 PCI slots and a 120mm exhaust fan.

The bottom of the chassis features two strips where the BitFenix Alchemy LED's strips can be installed. It also features 4 large rubber feet which will reduce vibrations and a removable dust filter.

The top of the chassis features a ‘hot swap and storage compartment' which features a SATA port so you can access a 2.5″ or 3.5″ drive. BitFenix also claim this top compartment is great for hiding mobile phones out of sight.

The front door features a double-hinged design, which allows you to open it from either side. This is an unbelievably simple design but a great feature. Our chassis came with two locking pins, restricting you from opening the front door from the left-hand side or removing the door completely, but these can easily be removed.

  1. I think its actually one of their nicer looking cases. some of them are very gaudy

  2. They are getting better, not quite in the same league as say cooler master yet, but moving up the ranks.

  3. This seems a lot like a copy of the Fractal Design Define series – simplicity/minimalist design with a goal of reducing noise. Unlike the Fractal Design cases this does not feature brushed aluminium, but rather the bland, flat, square style typical of bitFenix cases.

  4. How on earth You’ve been able to measure 27,8 decibels while testing Antec’s 302 case, and been unable to do the same thing while testing Ghost chassis? 🙂
