5 out of 5 eggsBig, tough, beautiful case

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BW Black / White SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

Pros: -Lots of tool-less drive bays... Room for future upgrades and you don't have to worry about tiny screws everywhere.
-So much room for cable management... Plenty of room at the bottom at behind the motherboard for extra cables.
-Great airflow... Spots for up to 6 extra case fans; venting on the top, bottom, front, and the window side keeps the inside cool even without fans.
-Windowed side... See your PC's guts in all their glory!
-Just looks pretty, in my opinion

Cons: -The hole for the motherboard power cable was blocked by my motherboard. Not a big deal though; I was able to run the power cable over the top, but it's something to keep in mind. If possible, run the power cable through the back before installing your motherboard.
-Since there is so much venting, the guts can get a little dusty without proper fans and airflow.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this case. It's big enough to upgrade down the road, but it will look great on your desk in the meantime.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat inexpensive case. No SSD slots.

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BW Black / White SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

Pros: Inexpensive
Decent quality
Clear side panel

Cons: No slots for SSD's

Other Thoughts: I can see my pretty components!!! I'm a big fan of the large window on the side panel! This is a great low-end case. I used it for a $1K+ performance build, and it works just fine for me. Many people would opt for a higher end case at that price point, but I see no reason. I fit 2 hard drives, a 4-SSD raid, and a 240mm liquid cooler inside comfortably. The only thing I didn't like is that there are no stock spaces for SSD's, I had to buy 2 converters. Be aware that the fan holes in the top of the case allow LOTS of dust into the case if you don't put fans or filters there.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BW Black / White SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

Pros: Looks good
No sharp edges
Buttons and lights all work
With lots of effort exerted, it will serve the purpose

Cons: No front fan
No front fan filter
Holes to mount front fan misaligned with any fan because they are located on multiple metal pieces

Dimensional instability in the drive bays -- too much flexing
Bottom drive bay difficult to use -- conflicts with power supply wires

Second bay is loose -- poorly designed supports
Second bay faces drives wrong way -- must remove right side of case to connect/disconnect power or SATA cables

Third bay up conflicts with SATA cables from motherboard
Third bay gets no fan air (even if you install a front fan)

Lowest 5.25" bay will not accept DVD-RW because of tangs supporting next bay down (third). I normally put DVD-RW in bottom 5.25" bay because case is on desktop.

Other Thoughts: I drilled new holes in a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter plate for the second bay, to make a 2.5" SSD face the correct direction to allow access to connectors from left side of case. No similar fix available for 3.5" drives.

I cut out a front filter from "3M Filtrete Basic" furnace filter available in 20" x 30" x 1" size at the "L" home improvement store. Also scrounged a fan shield to prevent this filter from rubbing the fan blades.

If you do not mount fans blowing out on the several other fan mounting locations, those locations become additional sources of dust inside the case. I cover them with stiff black paper.

I have purchased dozens of cases; this is the poorest design.

Choose something else.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, great price, great airflow!

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BW Black / White SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

Pros: Side panel-show.
Nice air flow.
Upgrade up to 6 fans to cooling.
Filter for Power Supply.

Cons: I wish have two or one 5.25" Drive bays less, to install two fans on the front to coll the HDD and the SSD. I think that will make more awesome this case.

4 out of 5 eggsa good budget case

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BW Black / White SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

Pros: Big enough for larger cards like the gtx 960.
can fit up to 7 fans, so air circulation isnt a problem.
lots of space for storages

Cons: the fan holes in the side are a bit distracting from the internals. i ended up buying an acrylic window and replacing the window.

4 optical drives are a bit overkill nowadays. i ended up puting them to good use, picking a 120mm fan that mounts into 3 of the drives.

floppy drive??? its unused and will probably end up staying that way.

Other Thoughts: overall a good budget case, lots of space for HDDs and SSD's, worth the money IMO.
