Today we’re going to be looking at the BitFenix Nova – a budget oriented case that is aimed at evolving the definition of inexpensive design. Having a closed off front panel, with only one optical drive, it retains a sleek look, that continues along the top of the case as well. A large side window allows you to view your creation, and is not typically seen on most budget oriented cases. With support for Mini-ITX, Micro ATX, and full sized ATX boards – the diversity of motherboard options in this case is not bad either.
The Nova comes in either a black or a white variant, the latter of which we’ll be looking at today. With the main chassis made from standard steel, and the front panel from plastic; they were able to keep this case at a low price and yet provide a very pleasing overall feel to it. Let’s go ahead and see what this case has to offer us.
BitFenix’s take on the Nova
“Bitfenix Nova delivers style, performance and silence at an incredibly competitive price. Whether you plan to build a basic office, home or gaming system, Nova’s simplistic design, aluminum badge, color options and optional window side panel mean it will blend in perfectly. Long air vents running along the sides of its front, hidden behind sleek mesh strips, provide plenty of airflow to cool the system. And as a result allowed us to keep Novas Top and Front panel completely closed to block fan-noise from escaping the enclosure, and dust from building up inside.”
