The BitFenix Raider comes well protected in polystyrene.
The Raider has quite a refined look to it, as ever with black being the preferred colour for gaming cases. The rounded edges are nicely proportioned and the mesh front and top look smart alongside that “SoftTouch” treatment.
From the font we can see the only BitFenix logo on this case, along with the 4 5.25” drive bays.
The sides of the Raider are quite simplistic – there are no windows on this case. However, as I hinted at before, I believe this case is aimed at the modest side of the market, as such the lack of window is quite appropriate.
From the top we can see the various I/O ports, the mesh covering and behind that the vents drilled into this case – maximising the passive exhaust of hot air.
From the back of the case we can see a 120mm fan, along with 2 O-ringed holes for watercooling tubes, and another hole for routing cables through the case (next to the 2 O-rings). The entire case is painted black, so there’s not nasty bare aluminium back here.
From the base we can see 2 filtered intake/exhaust holes suitable for a 120mm fan and a PSU. The filters here are a little loose, but should be no problem when the case is stationary (there’s just a risk that they may fall out if the computer is moved regularly). Additionally we can see the 4 rubber based feet of this case.
