We’ve printed a bunch of very nice looking catalogues this year, and inside there are some pretty interesting products. Most of it is the same great products with specs, however we do have a couple of new material that we would like to show you guys.
Yes, that’s not an error.. It’s not supposed to say PWN. (Although that might have been a cool name…)

We’re keeping the silence, and bumping up some turbulence!

Full specs of our Ghost in our catalogue.

We’ve got a couple more beauty shots of our VIP room and the Gun Metal Raider. We’re winding down to the last few days of Computex, so only a few more interesting products to show you guys after these sets! Yes, that’s right. We’ve still got products up our sleeves that no other media have taken pictures of… I hope.

Our Raider, armed with gun metal and a window took a couple people off their feet. As Product Manager, David J, would say, “Not too shabby!”

You will then be sent a verification email to verify the email address you entered. Check your inbox and click the link inside to verify your account. Easy peasy! :)

Step 2: Once you’ve registered an account, it’s time to fill in the survey. Click here.

Inside, you’ll see a bunch of questions asking you to choose your favorite hardware of 2011. Of course, the super important question is #13:

You can fill the other questions as you like, but pay very close attention to the very last question:

Hello BitFenix Fans!

Our first ever Rate Us and Win Contest is over, and what a response! We had people from all over the world writing in and sharing their experiences with us.

Well, why stop here? :)

So, we’re going to keep this contest going, and every two weeks, pick a new winner!

Here’s what you have to do to participate:

  1. Post a review of your BitFenix product online. You can post this review on the store website where you purchased the product or on an online forum of your choosing. It can also be a video review!
  2. Send us a scan of your purchase receipt for your BitFenix product.
  3. Send us a screenshot of your review.
  4. Send us the link to your review.
  5. Tell us which country you purchased your BitFenix product in.

Once you have your submission ready, send us an email:

opinion@bitfenix.com

And that’s it! At the end of the contest, our panel of judges will choose the very best review, and the winner will receive BitFenix products equal to the value of their purchase!

Remember, it doesn’t matter when you purchased your BitFenix product. Just tell us your honest feedback by posting a review online and you could walk away with a bunch of BitFenix gear! It’s just one more way we are saying thank you to everyone for supporting BitFenix.

Here’s how the reviews will be judged:

  • Detail (just how much detail did the review include?)
  • Style (is the review well written/shot?)
  • Accuracy (did the review get the facts right?)

Notice we aren’t judging based on if the review is positive or negative. We want your honest feedback and we’re going to go out of our way to get it. ;)

Full contest details can be found below.

Good luck to all and looking forward to reading your reviews!

Hello BitFenix Fans!

A part of what makes BitFenix products special is the amount of feedback we get from fans like you. After all, what better way to discover how we can improve than by straight up asking our fans? Well, rather than just making a survey or something like that, we’re going to do things a little differently (typical BitFenix, amirite?). ;)

Here’s what we’re going to do. We want your feedback and we’re going to put up some awesome prizes for it! Here’s what you have to do to participate:

  1. Post a review of your BitFenix product online. You can post this review on the store website where you purchased the product or on an online forum of your choosing. It can also be a video review!
  2. Send us a scan of your purchase receipt for your BitFenix product.
  3. Send us a screenshot of your review.
  4. Send us the link to your review.
  5. Tell us which country you purchased your BitFenix product in.

Once you have your submission ready, send us an email:

opinion@bitfenix.com

And that’s it! At the end of the contest, our panel of judges will choose the very best review, and the winner will receive BitFenix products equal to the value of their purchase! You could get a second case for a friend, or use the credit to pimp your rig out with Alchemy cables or Spectre fans – it’s completely up to you! Just think of the possibilities!

Best of all, it doesn’t matter when you purchased your BitFenix product. Just tell us your honest feedback by posting a review online and you could walk away with a bunch of BitFenix gear! It’s just one more way we are saying thank you to everyone for supporting BitFenix.

Here’s how the reviews will be judged:

  • Detail (just how much detail did the review include?)

Hi guys,

Well, the BitFenix T-shirt Design Contest has finally come to a close. We received 44 different designs in total, and truth be told, there were a ton of good ones. Some were cool yet understated, others were very over the top. But in the end, we really had to pick only one winner out of the bunch, and that one, was none other than Continuum by Andrew Jonathan in Australia!

This design of his was just fantastic, and his use of the BitFenix colors and logo really won over the judges. As the second-highest rated entry, it was clear that many people also admired Andrew’s design, and so we had to give Continuum the nod this time as the winner of the first ever BitFenix T-shirt Design Contest!

For his efforts, Andrew will receive a brand new Shinobi Window chassis.

Of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t also announce the winner of the lucky draw! We picked a name at random from all the people that voted on designs, and the winner of the lucky draw is none other than Kyle Hart from the USA! Kyle will receive a new Shinobi chassis. Congratulations, Kyle!

This was by far the hardest contest to judge, simply because of the number of excellent designs that were submitted. Winners, be sure to check your inboxes for details on how to claim your prize.

Great work everyone, and once again, congratulations to the winners and big thanks to everyone that entered the contest.

Stay tuned for the next exciting BitFenix contest!

Peace guys!
