Jumping right into things and the performance for the Bravo was as good as we could hope for. The Bravo features a highly ventilated design by nature and this allows for good directional airflow; though I must say things could have been better. While the...

The Type-01 Bravo marks XFX's first foray into the PC case market. Did the company's enthusiast DNA help it to produce a winner out of the gate? In many regards, the Type-01 Bravo lives up to XFX's mantra of attention to detail. The case is full of nice...

Type-01 Bravo is XFX's first attempt at bringing to market a computer chassis and we believe they've presented a good product in this new offering.The outer styling with its heavily ventilated exterior might not bode well with all manner of system...

With this being XFX's first attempt in the case market I don't think anyone, including me, had any idea of what to expect. My first impression of the Type01 was that XFX really with a unique styling when compared to everything else that is on the...

It is however plagued by quality issues and the price tag is hard to justify for what really is a typical mid-sized tower case with an unusual aesthetic. XFX is currently working on other case designs, with a rumored aluminum-based "Type 01 Alpha" coming up, which sounds far more interesting for advanced users, gamers, and enthusiasts.

For a first attempt at breaking into the computer case market, XFX didn't do a bad job. The design is clean and attractive. Due to the massive amount of interior room, it was a dream to work with. The inability to install a full custom water cooling loop...

Let us recap my reasoning and scoring method before diving into my final words. First I look at what the company is saying it offers. For example, say the company states the case supports large / long graphic cards or ten quiet fans. In this example, I...

When unboxing the XFX Type01 case the first thing which will strike the user is the amount of plastic here. Almost all of the external surfaces are plastic. This includes the sides, which are actually constructed in metal but finished with plastic....

XFX are better known for their award-winning power supplies and graphics cards, in fact that's ALL they're known for, or at least that was true until this arrived in the eTeknix office! We've seen the case before at a couple of trade shows, but back then...

XFX’s first case, the Type 01 Bravo is an interesting blend of unique design, basic features and a reasonable price. But is this enough to put it ahead of the...

Efter vores test af XFX's første kabinet Type01 Bravo står det klart, at XFX her har gjort et ganske OK indspark på kabinetmarkedet. Der er mange steder, hvor XFX fejler, heriblandt ved kabelclearance på bagsiden, de blokerende harddiskbure og den...

XFX, pour son premier essai dans le domaine des boitiers, nous a livré ici un modèle fini, aux finitions quasi-irréprochables et à l'originalité esthétique assumée.Disposant de tout ce qu'il faut pour un boitier à ce prix, il ne nous aura pas surpris,...

Diante da dificuldade e concorrência que o mercado de placas de vídeo vem enfrentando nos últimos anos, é normal que empresas busquem alternativas em produtos oferecidos. Depois de virar parceira da AMD, a XFX obrigatoriamente deixou de ser parceira da...

我们印象中的XFX讯景是一家显卡厂商,但随着市场不断的做大,为了迎合市场玩家需要,XFX讯景他们似乎又有了新动作!在去年的CEBIT展会上,XFX讯景展示了一款有趣的铝合金游戏机箱,具体被称为XFX XFX Type01 Bravo机箱,这是XFX讯景的第一款游戏机箱,因此不论在设计、用料以及扩展等方面下足了功夫,对于XFX讯景具有里程碑的意义,这意味着XFX讯景也要开始进军机箱行业了! 新的讯景XFX Type01...

Das XFX Type 1 Bravo hinterlässt durch seine ansprechende Formgebung einen bleibenden Eindruck. Haptisch kann dem Midi-Tower trotz der häufigen Verwendung von Kunststoff nur in einem Punkt Kritik ausgestellt werden: die Front mit ihren dezenten...
