BitFenix's first entry in the PC enclosure business was a tad garish, but I've gotta say, the company's new Survivor case looks downright slick. And internally, it resembles the Corsair 600T we reviewed last month, with cable routing holes, a bottom-mounted PSU, and two modular, sideways-mounted hard drive cages (with what appear to be to be tool-less trays).
The Survivor also has dual USB 3.0 ports at the top, room for up to two 200-mm fans or three 120-mm fans, and mercifully, a button to disable the LEDs behind the glowing logo. BitFenix has also thrown in some neat additions for the LAN party crowd, including a slide-out handle at the top and a back-panel security system that purportedly locks down peripheral cables.
Look for the Survivor on store shelves in mid-November. There will be two variants: the full-blown Survivor, priced at $109, and the Survivor Core, which will sell for $89 and come without USB 3.0, LED fans, or the cable-locking scheme.
