PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Survivor is a steel and ABS plastic mid-tower chassis with some unusual dimensions. A bit later we'll see just why. It features an unusual cooling scheme, plenty of storage room and will support ATX, mATX and mini-ITX motherboards. It also has a blacked-out interior and a well-appointed front I/O panel.
This case includes two BitFenix Spectre fans that turn at a modest 500-700 RPM and are very quiet. Will these two big fans be up to the cooling chores demanded by my hardware set? We'll see.
The Survivor series has two iterations. We'll be looking at the Survivor in this review, but they also market the Survivor Core, a stripped down version with a lower pricepoint. Keep in mind that the Survivor is not available for sale yet and some of the features and accessories aren't finalized. However, at this writing, the Survivor comes with a mechanism to secure peripherals that BitFenix calls “S2,” and the “lockdown” feature, allowing the user to secure the graphics cards for transportation.
