The Type 1 Bravo is a mid-tower gaming chassis that features a minimalistic design and lots of ventilation.
XFX is getting into the gaming enclosure segment, and has launched its first offering.
The Type 1 Bravo is a mid-tower ATX case that is built mainly out of SECC-steel. The design of the chassis is quite striking, with the seamless hinged valves at the front for hiding DVD or Blu-Ray drives. Instead of using rubber feet at the bottom of the chassis, XFX has gone with a floating design that elevates the chassis to allow for better airflow from the base. The side panel features a red bar that has the XFX logo.
The chassis measures 518 mm x 232 mm x 562 mm, and weighs 10.4 kilos. One 200 mm LED fan at the front and one 140 mm LED fan at the back come standard with the case, with the chassis accommodating a total of eight fans. In addition to the fans, a mesh style design along the side panels assists in better airflow to the chassis.
Users can remove the 200 mm fan at the front and install two 120 mm fans. Similarly, at the back, the 140 mm offering can be switched out for two 120 mm fans. The top 200 mm fan fixture can also be modified to hold two 140/120/90 mm fans. Users also have the facility of installing liquid-cooled solutions in the chassis. At the front of the chassis, there are four USB 3.0 ports along with HD audio connectors.
There are five 2.5-inch internal drive bays and three 3.5-inch bays. All drive bays come with a tool-free design for easier installation. This being an XFX case, it comes with the ability to fit in the longest video cards and coolers.
The Type 1 Bravo costs $129, and is available in the U.S. It is backed by a five year warranty.
