The front of the raider sports two 120mm fans or an optional 200mm fan for fresh air intake.
The top is fitted for a 200mm fan to be used up there and the back panel has a 120mm fan to help with the exhausting duties.
Overall, the Bitfenix Raider performed very well in our testing. The outside edges, coated with the SofTouch technology, always look great. The quartet of USB 3.0 connections is another good addition to the Raider, helping you keep up with the new 3.0 compliant peripherals. The wire management solution provided worked well with our installation and kept the inside nice and clean without the awful clutter that plagues a lot of systems. Installing everything was simple and quick, as most everything is tool-free in the Raider. With the nice dust filtering solution, users should expect a very clean system with minimal downtime for cleaning the filters. The Raider held our GTX 480 without a problem, once we took out the HDD wall. This was a great idea from Bitfenix, otherwise this case would be in serious trouble and have to be downgraded to the middle of the pack. Considering everything we saw, and an MSRP of $89, we have no problem recommending this case to anyone out there looking at this price range. This case is one that should definitely be considered before buying.
