Hadn't really seen that case until I just searched it..

I'd probably go with the non window version and cut my own window in it.

Neither tbh but for the price the case seems decent. It wouldn't make sense to me, however, to have a cheap-ish case with a window - what exactly are you supposed to show off?

That's certainly an option for you if you want to go for the modding route. Not everyone's quite that skilled, so we have a window version out there as well.

I think that some users on a more limited budget would probably spend more on components like graphics cards and CPUs and try to cut corners in other areas. Some of these might still want to show off the hardware they've got, even if there's no super-awesome water cooling setup to speak of. Plus, they might want to have that extra fan location that the window version provides.

Still, we make two different version so users can choose the one they prefer. Thanks for your feedback!

Hello Bitfenix

I'm from the US. I have looked all over your website and can not find the colored case accessories for your shinobi case. Where are they?

Do you even sell them or are they made by someone else?

I have posted in the OC3D bitfenix customer care uk forum My linkon this and a few other questions regarding your shinobi case and accessories but have yet to get a response.

Have also tried to find your toll free phone number to call from US with no luck.

The US needs more retailers (big ones) like FRYES, Tiger direct, just to name a couple big ones.

I will not buy your case core if I cant get the case core accessories.

Anxiously awaiting your response to this...sorry for the posting of this in different threads but I figure one way or another you'll finally see it and respond

Hi bitfenix!

I recently purchased the Shinobi and I love it to death, amazing looking case and as Im new to computer building very 'noob' friendly also and very well built, not to mention extremely good value.

What I would like to ask you is as the Shinobi is such a good looking case I dont think many will want to put an optical drive in it as it sort of puts the great look down, are you planning on making a 'stealth' all in one cover for the 3 optical drive bays with the soft touch material? If not I think that would be an amazing adition and really improve the already wonderful look of the shinobi for people who dont want an optical drive. Thanks!

A smoother powder coat? USB 3.0 (atleast one in the front, maybe release a "premium" or "Deluxe" version) and Plexi-glass BitFenix logo in the front

Hi Zeals,

Yes this is fine... you could have also posted in the Shinobi section.

We aren't planning to have an LED logo for Shinobi at this time. But for the drive bay stealth kit, look for that to be available around mid-September. You heard it here first!
