BitFenix Shogun Overview
The BitFenix Shogun currently sells online for $139.99 (Amazon | Newegg). It comes with a quick installation guide, a few screws and zip ties, and a large Quick Custom E-ATX Shield for E-ATX motherboards.
At the front of the case, we have just a smooth, matte finish with the company logo towards the bottom. There is also what looks like a 5.25″ expansion drive slot. This slot is not intended for 5.25″ devices, but it can be used for future modifications.
The Shogun does come with a 120mm exhaust fan at the rear with support for a 140mm fan. You can mount the fans further up or down thanks to the adjustable fan mounts. There is a power supply dust filter underneath the case to prevent larger dust particles from entering the system.
The main side panel includes a reflective tempered glass window to show off the internal components of the system. Not only does the window make it more difficult for me to shoot these pictures, but it looks fantastic in person. Finger prints and dust will show on the surface of the window but they can be easily cleaned off with a microfiber cloth.
On the opposite side, there is also a large glass side panel. This side panel is not tinted, but there is a darker layer that runs across the entire glass panel to prevent anything from showing through, including light.
The top of the case includes a durable, curved aluminum panel. Beneath it are ventilation holes and a dust filter for airflow. The front I/O includes a microphone and headphone jack, two USB 2.0 ports, a tactile power button, two USB 3.0 ports, a reset switch, and a LED control switch.
Similar to the top, the bottom also has a curved aluminum panel. This bottom panel prevents the power supply from suffocating when placed on thick carpet.
Now that we have seen a quick overview of the Shogun, let’s take a look at the features this case has to offer.
