A little bit of issue I had was when I was installing the standoffs for the first time- and that’s when the brass standoff’s secure nut came was useful. So its more of a necessity at first rather than just another tool that you might not use.
Before we go ahead, comparing a BitFenix Shinobi and 500R (or a 400R) isn’t fair but my intention is not to compare them, but just to give you an idea of where this case stands compared to a bit taller ATX form factor cases.
The reason I am doing this is because putting and doing cable management on BitFenix Shinobi has been a good experience. Its a case that can accommodate a lot of hardware with a lot of space to mount HDD drives (do note that the space between 2 HDD drives is about 1cm) The “good experience” is pretty much comparable with such cases like the 500R and the 912 advanced I’ve evaluated few months ago. Suffice to say, Bitfenix is one of those “its bigger on the inside” cases.
