OCUK are using the Bitfenix Shinobi case which won our top award when we reviewed it last September.
Our review sample didn’t contain the final retail accessories pack, although we did receive an engineering pre-delivery ‘check list’, which was good to see.
This Shinobi is without the window modification, so both side panels are plain. The Bitfenix logo is emblazoned in red on the front of the case and two blue racing stipes are accented vertically. At the side of the case is an Overclockers UK badge, which matches the colours of the case well. It has a relatively small footprint which we also like.
We reviewed the windowed version over here.
The Shinobi is a well designed case with strong connectivity at the top. Two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports rest aside the power, reset and headphone/microphone connectors.
The Shinobi case has the power supply mounted at the bottom and watercooling holes at the side of the expansion bay section. The Gigabyte Z77 motherboard has DVI and VGA ports, which are covered as OCUK are using a discrete Sapphire HD7770 graphics card.
