BitFenix announces its BitFenix Portal mini-ITX case – No more pillow
BitFenix Pillow was introduced during Computex 2016, made for mini-ITX system with a unique interior structure. It’s one of the most anticipated PC cases back then, and today BitFenix has announced its official availability in the market.
Now it’s known as BitFenix Portal, this new mini-ITX case is designed to fit most high end components. It’s Dual Frame design supports 120mm radiators for AIO or custom loop water cooling, while it supports graphics cards up to 300mm in length and up to two 3.5” and one 2.5” hard drives.
With the top mounted graphics card, long windows (optional), the BitFenix Portal has an edge to show off your RGB-lit graphics cards. For the air ventilation, the case includes one 120mm fan for intake and an 80mm exhaust fan.
The BitFenix Portal body is made from aluminum. Transcending from traditional boxy cases, it was designed to balance the aesthetics of the outside shape with the functionality of the unique interior structure.

Pokdepinion: The only thing I concerned about the design is the air ventilation for the graphics card. For a blower style graphics card, it should not have any problem, but how about the open-air style?
