Scythe FenrisWolf hunts in our lab - 2. A Closer Look

Review: Silence is not golden, it's black

FenrisWolf features a simple but stylish design.

Image

The front panel hides behind a small door made of brushed aluminum and a large piece of mesh grill, which allows for unhindered airflow. The door also features Scythe logo, which fits like an integral piece of the design.

Image

Behind the "secret door" is the front panel where you can see six 5.25 inch slots. The last 5.25 slot features a floppy drive bracket, but Scythe made sure that the bracket can be removed and the slot employed to hold an optical drive. The top of the front panel holds the Power and Reset keys as well as Power and HDD LEDs.

Image

Below the optical drive slots is the first of the two fans that come with the case. We're talking about Slip Stream 120mm fans running at maximum 800 rpm, making them almost inaudible. Unfortunately, Scythe didn't leave place for additional fans within the case, meaning you'll have to do with these two only.

Image

The upper side of the case houses another panel holding two USB ports, one eSATA port, headphone out and microfone in. To open the panel, all you need is a simple push.

The sides are black and feature no special designer details except for the "b" in the lower left corner, representing Mr. Benjamin Franz. The side panels are easy to remove and mount.

We've mentioned that this is an extremely quiet case, courtesy of the two 120mm Slip Stream fans. One is located on the rear panel of the case and can bee seen on the picture below. The PSU is mounted towards the top of the case, and the two 25mm holes for water cooling are in the lower left corner.
