Introduction to the BitFenix Survivor
There are just a couple of companies out there that can say that made a big splash with their first product to market. One example of such a company would be Prolimatech as they put together one of the best coolers at that time. The Megahalems had everyone talking and I cannot count how many Editor Choice awards it received. Chances are if you bought one a couple of years ago when it was released you are still using it.
BitFenix is another company that had similar success with their first product to market. In August of this year they released the Colossus gaming case. It is hard to find a case that was quite as unique until it came along. The Colossus was built for the gamer that wants something different and that's just what this case was….different. The Colossus came available in two colors white and black, but what really made it an eye-catcher was the addition of blue or red lighting which surrounds the exterior of the case.
The Colossus was more than visual internally, offering the gamer and enthusiast more than enough room to house everything needed to build one hell of a rig. The motherboard tray even would support an eATX boards, which is uncommon outside of the server and workstation markets, even with motherboards like the EVGA SR-2 and the Gigabyte UD9 being so popular.
BitFenix is at it again with a new case that has not hit the market yet. This new case is dubbed Survivor and is the total opposite of the Colossus, aimed at the gamer looking for something compact. Something the gamer can take to their home away from home location, aka LAN parties. The Survivor is small but it does offer a unique styling.
BitFenix says it best in the press release "We wanted to design a PC chassis that had ruggedized features, but didn’t necessarily look like a tractor." We will not say the Survivor is simplistic because of its broad rounded corners and the big red logo sitting on the top. But the case is rugged and will take its fair share of abuse, not extreme abuse, but simple wear and tear that a case would go through when transporting it from one LAN party to the next.
Bitfenix's take on the Survivor
Ruggedized features combined with elegant styling, Survivor is a new paradigm in chassis design. Engineered for the mobile digital warrior, Survivor comes fully equipped with BitFenix S2™ security, an innovative carrying handle that hides away when not in use, and full compatibility with extra-long graphics cards. BitFenix's SofTouch™ coating helps the system resist a few bumps on the way to the LAN party, and balanced airflow means Survivor remains cool and stable in the heat of battle. All of this is geared to help you dominate at your next LAN event, rather than worrying about if your hardware will survive the day.

Users shouldn't have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for.
