4 out of 5 eggsDelighted, except

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Four external bays and multiple fan slots. Nice color scheme and windowed side panel. Plenty of room with functionality, except for a liquid cooling system. See cons.
I installed a ICY DOCK MB324SP-B ExpressCage 4x2.5" SAS/SATA HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack in one 5" bay, a iStarUSA BPU-230SATA-BPL 2x5.25" to 3x3.5" in two of the bays, and still had a bay left for the DVD-R.

Cons: You will have to improvise for liquid cooling. I got the "Enermax Liqtech 240 All-in-One Liquid Cooler 27MM Thick Radiator w/ Duo High Pressure Airflow Fans" to go with this case. I figured, 'both are ENERMAX, so they gotta work well together, right?" WRONG. There wasn't enough room to install it inside this case properly. The radiator only would fit inside the top of the case, so I had to install the dual fans outside the case with fan guard shields to ventilate the radiator. That sucks! (pun intended) the air OK, but looks dumb. Wish now, that I'd spent a lot less for a good 'old school' heatsink and fan. You'd think ENERMAX would design their gear to fit together, or at least mention the limitations in their case description.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case provided you don't try to fit it with liquid cooling. With all the innovation required to make the liquid cooler work, it's still a good case. I have four 2 1/2" drives, three 3 1/2" drives hot-swappable. plus a DVD-R with the four top bays, and AMD vid cards in cross-fire.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ATX full case

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Just received my case today and it fits all of my needs to make an AMD build. Packaging was done with care and not a single scratch on the panels or case. Most of the front USB wiring was already done and tied off neatly. Very open inside and sturdy.

Cons: Grating on the top of the case may allow a good deal of dust to get in, however very minor issue and only an issue because the house I'm in has multiple animals.

Other Thoughts: Although not put any components in yet, my first impression is overwhelmingly positive, for the price I feel like I have a case that costs 2x its price.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case for the cost on the market

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Hands down, the best quality case on Newegg.. Everything on it made well, I am happy with the case, I really liked the price, It was delivered in 4 days.I would buy another one, but I noticed I bought it on sale for $30 less then it current price. I will definitly purchase another one when it goes back on sale. DOn't get my wrong, they are worth the current asking price without a doubt, totally worth it. I just am in no rush for it, I will be buying it, just to put in the cornor until I need it one day......

Cons: Larger seeable area, see t hru intake grill in the fron panel at the bottom where fan sits so that the light from fan can see thru.

Other Thoughts: Enjoy the case~!

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Simple but cool look; impressive to look at but not flashy at all.
clear side-panel for looking at beautiful interior
Roomy interior

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Priced Case

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent Air Flow
USB 3.0 << Plus
Spacious
Large Clear Side Window
Multiple Spots for Fans
Dust Filter for PSU Fan
Easy HDD Bay
Buy this case

Cons: No tray for spare change like Antec 900 (Not really a con)

Other Thoughts: I have been very impressed with this case. I had never heard of the brand before but wanted a clear side window and USB 3.0 on the front panel which is still an up and coming feature on cases.

The interior is very spacious and there is room for fans everywhere if you need them. I love the easy access of being able to remove the HDD Cage and quick clips for the HDD's.

This would easily fit a large video card with an ACX Cooler. I have an MSI Gaming 7 & Zalman CNPS9500A Cooler in it with plenty of room.

It is too bad that I am not able to upload a picture to show as I really like this case. Some have mentioned that the quality / metal is a little bit thinner but I have no issues it. I do not move my tower so once it is in place, it's set.

One 120MM Black fan is included with the case which I replaced with a Cooler Master Blue LED fan.

It looks like either a 120MM fan or 140MM fan can be attached to the top of the case but my case is running very cool already. Definitely recommend this case.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy & Well Planned For Price

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BR Black/Red SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Large open space. Big window. Great airflow plus removable dust filter. Cable management solutions well considered. Highly adaptive. *Again this is all considering price.

Cons: I would prefer no holes in the window but I knew the price was too good to pass up. With the discount I can get a sheet of acrylic and make a better window.
No eggs docked.

Other Thoughts: Very moddable case. Plenty of room to mess around. It's a really good value, has features other high quality expensive cases have just not the "premium" feel. Build quality is very solid.
For optimal airflow I did install two 120s in the top.
