Bitfenix Ghost PC Case Preview

The most dangerous opponent is the one you can’t hear. Designed for silence, Ghost features BitFenix Serenitek Silencing material on the front door and side panels to keep unwanted system noise from throwing you off your game. Ghost comes ready for 240mm water cooling radiators, while the top-mounted S4 storage compartment houses a SATA hot swap port for convenient file transfers. The outside is coated with BitFenix NanoChrome, a new surface treatment which gives both metal and plastic a uniform look. The dual-hinge door design gives you the flexibility to open the door from the left or the right on-the-fly. Whisper-quiet Spectre fans keep both noise and temperatures down, and anti-vibration HDD trays dampen noise even further. With support for long graphics cards, Alchemy LED strips, the latest solid-state drives and USB 3.0, Ghost gives you everything you need to strike fear in the hearts of your opposition.

Ghost begins with a modern minimalistic look that blends into virtually any decor. Its clean lines are supported by a single silver arch, the shape of which is mirrored perfectly by the front door vents. Coating the outside is a new surface treatment from BitFenix dubbed NanoChrome™. This specially developed coating combines an enamel with mother-of-pearl powder, which is then applied to the surface of the case and heated to high temperatures. The result is a uniform finish that perfectly blends together both plastic and metal parts.

Opening the front door reveals BitFenix Serenitek™ silencing material. Dense yet light weight, Serenitek covers the inside of both the front door and the two side panels to help trap unwanted noise inside the chassis. The door itself is a dual hinge design, which allows users to open the front door from the left or from the right on-the-fly. Up top are two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, as well as the BitFenix S4™. This compartment is equipped with a hot-swap bay that features a high speed SATA III port, making it ideal for transferring data from hard disks and SSDs without having to open up the case. Best of all, removing the top fan filter reveals a cavernous compartment designed to accommodate a slim 240mm radiator, making Ghost a perfect foundation for a silent water cooled rig of destruction. On the bottom of the case, you’ll find a handy magnetic dust filter, as well as dual rails that are designed for BitFenix Alchemy LED Strips. Simply affix the LED strips to these rails, route the power cables through the pre-drilled holes in the steel body, and you’ve got an impressive under lighting effect in no time at all.

On the inside, Ghost delivers other impressive features that help keep noise to a minimum. Dual 120mm Spectre fans move air through the case while remaining whisper quiet, and anti-vibration HDD trays help muffle rotating hard disks. Rubber grommets help reduce sound caused by air turbulence and rubber padding for the PSU helps keep PSU noise down. Ghost users will also find a specialized SSD rack that not only allows the installation of up to three 2.5″ SSDs, but also allows for graphics cards up to 330mm in length without any modifications! Tool-free drive locking mechanisms make ODD and HDD installation a snap, while a massive CPU cooler cutout enables quick swapping of CPU coolers.

Features

BitFenix Serenitek™ Silencing Material
Silence is golden. Developed by BitFenix Labs, this acoustic foam layer absorbs unwanted system noise from fans and hard drives, while maintaining a light and thin profile. Lining the inside of the side panels and the dual hinge door, Serenitek keeps noise trapped inside Ghost so you can focus on the task at hand.

Water Cooling Ready
What better way to cool a silent system than with liquid cooling? That’s why Ghost comes equipped with room for a 240mm radiator on top, and hides it away with a handy mesh cover to maintain a clean look while delivering excellent airflow.

BitFenix S4™ Hot Swap and Storage
The deadliest weapons are the ones you can’t see. BitFenix S4 gives you a handy compartment to store mobile phones, hard disks and other accessories, and also comes with a SATA hot swap port for convenient file storage.

BitFenix NanoChrome™ Surface Treatment
Another BitFenix Labs creation, Ghost is covered with NanoChrome Surface Treatment. Combining a high-temperature glaze with metallic dust, NanoChrome seamlessly blends plastic and metal together for a smooth texture and unified look across the entire chassis surface.

Whisper-Quiet Spectre™ Cooling
Renowned for silence, Ghost comes equipped with two 120mm Spectre fans for excellent cooling and acoustic performance.

Anti-Vibration HDD Trays
Vibrations caused by rotating hard drives can be one of the noisiest parts of any system. Ghost comes fully loaded with anti-vibration HDD trays to drastically reduce the noise generated by HDD vibration.

Dual-Hinge Door Design
Unique to Ghost, the front door can be opened on the left or the right side on-the fly. No matter where you place your case or which hand you use to swing open the front door, Ghost conforms to you – not the other way around.

Pre-modded for Alchemy™ LED Strips
For an unbelievably awesome look, Ghost comes with rails on the underside that are specially designed to fit BitFenix Alchemy LED Strips.

Excellent Expansion and Connectivity
With native support for long graphics cards, solid state drives, and a hot swap bay, Ghost offers multiple expansion possibilities. Add to it two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, and Ghost is fully equipped to handle all of your USB peripherals as well.

BitFenix Quality
As a BitFenix chassis, Ghost comes with all the amenities and thoughtful touches that BitFenix is famous for. Tool-free drive locking mechanisms make installing drives a snap, while filtered intakes keep the insides free of dust and debris. A huge cutout on the motherboard tray allows for quick swapping of CPU coolers, and a luxurious powder-coated interior and multiple rubber-grommeted cable management holes allow for a great looking build, even on the inside.
