In today's economy, everyone is trying to stretch their investments as far as they can. Gamers are certainly no exception, especially when they look at how to build, or upgrade a system without going broke. One place to save is on the case, but can we get a decent case at less than the $100 price point? There are many choices out there in that range, but most of them are bland featureless boxes. BitFenix has recently released an offering they say is more than that. They call it a gaming case. "The OUTLAW" conjures images of wanted posters and general mayhem--all good things from a gamer's perspective. Perhaps that was what prompted BitFenix to choose it. With its unorthodox layout, ability to handle multiple fans, matte black finish, reasonable price, and sleek look, it has some attractive points in it's favor. Will it fulfill the claims made by BitFenix? Outlaw turns the chassis world upside down - literally. Its inverted motherboard tray places your graphics card up top, closer to the top fan locations for enhanced VGA cooling. Positioning the graphics card towards the top of the chassis also allows you to install incredibly long graphics cards, which means you can arm your Outlaw with the most advanced firepower available.
A case can really make or break a final build. Many times, you start out by choosing key hardware such as the CPU, motherboard, GPU, and RAM, but end up with little money left for anything else. Depending on your preferences, it's common to see the case either neglected or over-budgeted. However, it appears that several companies are finally catching on to this issue! These days, it seems every case company is looking to provide consumers with affordable product options. With the recent OCC reviews of NZXT's low-budget cases, it isn't surprising to see more and more low-cost options following suit. Back in July, we reviewed the BitFenix Shinobi with crowd-pleasing results. Today, BitFenix is back to OCC as we take a peek at the BitFenix Outlaw – what seems to be a spinoff of their Merc Alpha and Merc Beta cases that were released in August. At a $10 premium above the Merc mid-towers, let's see how this Outlaw compares. I hope it doesn't break too many laws. (Har har!) Arriving on my doorstep, this was one of the smaller boxes I've seen for a case – at first glance, I wasn't even sure there was a case inside!
