BitFenix Nova Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Complete System


It took around twenty minutes to put together our system, which is a decent enough build time for any budget chassis. There’s very little in the way of cable routing, so I deployed our BitFenix Fury power supply, as it has pre-braided cables that are more than acceptable to have out on show without ruining the look of the build. If you’ve got the side panel window, you’re going to want all-black cables (at least) to save the build from looking undesirable.

There’s loads of room here for the 3.5″ drives, but should you only need the 2.5″ drive bays, this space is great for storing excess cables, especially if your PSU is not modular like ours.

Large graphics cards proved no issue for the chassis, although if we had a second one installed, it would limit the number of 3.5″ drives we could install, something you should consider while picking your parts.

We did manage to keep the cable management pretty tidy, so airflow to all major fans in unobstructed and there’s easily room here for a 120mm AIO. Just keep in mind that there are no front panel fans included, so if you’re running a lot of hardware, you’re going to want to invest in at least one extra fan for better airflow.

Overall, a surprisingly great looking build. I wasn’t expecting it to be bad, but it’s certainly nice and tidy for something in this price range.

The shape of the side panel window works really well too, as it hides the hard drive bays and any “cable management” you’ve done towards the front of the chassis.
