The BitFenix Releases the Portal – One of the Coolest Mini-ITX Cases to Come Out in Years

Posted by at 8:13 am on March 16, 2017

BitFenix has announced the Portal ITX case.. The photos really make this chassis look great and unique. Available in both black and white, and with or without a top-mounted window to show off your GPU (the case sports an inverted motherboard layout). We here love the Porta’s sleek lines and rounded aluminum exterior – all in a mini-ITX enclosure!

By using an  SFX power supply, the kids over at BitFenix have slimmed down the tower concept by a ton.  When you first look at the photos of the enclosure, you think you are looking at an ATX system.  Per the specs, the case is just wide enough to accommodate a standard PCIe graphics card.

A smaller mini-ITX case is often more challenging to work in, but here BitFenix has a smart solution with their dual-frame design:

“Designed for ITX Motherboards, the striking key component of the interior is the Dual Frame Design for easy access and quick installation. The inner chamber, equipped with enough space for high-end components, slides into the housing via a ball bearing runner design.”

The external housing slimply slides off to reveal a standard chassis frame, allowing for easy component installation. Beyond the requirements of mini-ITX motherboard and SFX power supply, the Portal allows for CPU coolers of up to 125 mm, and full size graphics cards up to 300 mm long.
