The Front Panel
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The front panel of the Bitfenix Shinobi XL has five external 5.25” bays, using solid covers. The case comes with an adapter to convert any of the 5.25” bays into an external 3.5” bay, which also supports the installation of a 3.5” or 2.5” internal device. The front panel and the bay covers have a rubber coating, which prevents fingerprint marks on the case and also gives the product a very professional look.

Two thin meshes that run on the sides of the front panel provide the air intake for the big 230 mm fan (Bitfenix BFF-SCF-23030KK-RP) that comes installed on the front panel of the Shinobi XL. It uses a three-pin fan connector, but more technical specifications are not provided by the manufacturer. This fan has an air filter in front of it, as you can see in Figure 5, and it can be replaced with three 120 mm fans.
