Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro 3 fans included
The case comes with 3 fans - one on the front (230mm), one on the rear (120mm), and one on top (230mm).
Pro Decent cooling and noise pollution
While not exceptional, the stock cooling properties of the case as well as the noise output beat average scores slightly when a similar setup is used in a different case. The GPU was a bit warm, while the CPU was considerably cooler.
If you overclock, then it gets very noisy and warm - much more than other cases.
Pro Ready for liquid cooling
There is a total 1080x120mm of space for radiators, which provides plenty of room for liquid cooling.
Pro Large case
There's plenty of room for all the components you could want. Just about any GPU will fit - even some extra long cards - and there's even room for most liquid cooling systems.
Pro Easy assembly even for beginners
You won't need any tools to assemble the Shinobi XL other than a screwdriver. The drive bays have pegs that bend, holding the drive in. The PSU (power supply unit) is also a breeze to install with rubber feet that the PSU rests on helping to align it properly.
Pro Tons of drive bays
There are 8 3.5/2.5" drive bays, as well as 5 5.25" bays for all the slots you could want.
Pro Sturdy chassis
The chassis is made out of a soft touch plastic that is reinforced with steel.
Con Poor cable management
There isn't enough space along the routing lines to fit all the cables needed. There is space in crevices, however those are nearly impossible to access.
Con Uninspiring design
It's very hard to get excited about the very basic case design. It seems to go for the minimalist design, however misses it by a mark.
