RGB lighting in one housing is currently one of the biggest trends. Especially in the range up to 100 Euro several illuminated housings have been introduced in the last months. BitFenix is also expanding its Nova Mesh TG with four RGB fans. But how the housing performs in practice and whether it can stand out against the wide range offered by other manufacturers is the subject of our detailed test.
The BitFenix Nova Mesh TG 4ARGB has been available since October 2019 and is almost identical to the BitFenix Nova Mesh TG, which has been available since mid 2019, except for the four RGB fans. Both cases are available in black and white.

Packaging and Scope of Delivery
Since the housing has some glass elements, these must be sufficiently protected for the delivery. The Nova Mesh TG 4ARGB arrives well packed in polystyrene. The glass elements were additionally covered inside and outside with a foil to protect them from scratches.
The housing conceals the accessories of the housing. The following parts are included:
- Miscellaneous screws for hardware and fastenings
- Multiple cable ties
- One speaker
- Quick Installation Guide
The accessories are sufficient for most PC hardware combinations. Adapters or control elements for the RGB fans are unfortunately not to be found in the accessories.
