EXTERIOR & SIDE PANELS

The BitFenix Phenom Mini-ITX measures 25.0 x 33.0 x 37.4 cm or 9.8 x 13.0 x 14.7 inches (W x H x D), giving it a total volume of 30.9 liters. It's big for a mini-ITX model and rivals smaller microATX cases in overall size.


The power and reset buttons as well as the audio ports and a pair of USB 3.0 connectors are located on the side of the case. The side panels are completely solid though a small amount of airflow is pulled in through some holes at the sides of the front bezel.


In its stock configuration, the ceiling fan mounts, which are covered by a removable dust filter with locking mechanism, act as the case's primary intake source. The rear of the case reveals the layout — the power supply is positioned at the bottom horizontally beneath the motherboard tray and there's a 120/140 exhaust exhaust fan placement at the top.


Underneath the case is a removable dust filter servicing the power supply fan and screws for removing the bottom hard drive cage inside. The chassis sits on short rubber feet with a wide base.


The side panels are held on with a pair of thumb screws at the back. They utilize a fairly secure hinge design and are surprisingly sturdy. Measuring 1.0 mm thick, they're a throwback to the exceedingly well-built old school towers of yesteryear.


The right side panel is encumbered with the circuit board and cables for the external switches and ports. There's also a plastic grate-like structure for mounting two 2.5 inch drives. An additional pair of 2.5 inch drives can be installed at the bottom of the case, positioned vertically between the main drive cage and power supply.
