5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

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

Pros: The GOOD
- First of all, it looks pleasantly awesome in my room. The black and white color is totally awesome.
- Feels pretty study for a 40-60$ case.
- One of the cheapest cases with a window
- Plenty of space for decent cable management in the back.
- Included zip-ties
- and removable HDD cage
- Packed really well
- GREAT fan options
- dust filter for the bottom psu

Cons: The BAD
- Although the cage is removable, the cage that carries the 3.5in bay can get in the way of big gpu's depending on the motherboard layout
* Only a couple centimeter's space between that cage and my HIS 7950.
- The window had like a tiny "chip" near the top, but that's probably only for me.
- Not a fan of the 2 differently designed fan slots on the window. But that's just me
- Had a tiny problem sitting the gpu properly. Had realized that either the slots were too far apart, or the motherboard tray was bent a little.Pushed up the tray a little and was able to sit it down and screw it in.
- Only came with 1 slot cover.

Other Thoughts: This is an AWESOME case. Didn't get it off here but got it locally for $40 with a $5 rebate. :) Its quite the steal! This case dropped my temps quite a bit from my last Micro atx case. and I'm very happy with the cooler temps.

My Specs:
- Fx 6300 @Stock
- 2x4gb HyperX Blu @1866mhz
- ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS
- Antec Vp550f Power supply
- This Ostrog Case
- Arctic A11 CPU cooler

2 out of 5 eggsGood case, bad shipping... Or something.

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

Pros: I ordered this case and just got it in the mail today along with some other parts. It is definitely good looking

Cons: There's a crack in the side door window and they want me to pay return shipping for the case. It's just the side door so why not just replace that simple piece? Ridiculous...

Other Thoughts: Wish Newegg could just replace the side door.

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

Pros: GREAT price

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate from 5/5/2014 Review

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

Pros: -see 5/5/2014 Review

Cons: - USB 3.0 port on case malfunctions. (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I have been having issues with the case usb 3.0 port. The devices keep dropping then reconnecting. Very annoying. I don't think the port is supplying enough power to the devices. Happens with both usb 3.0 external hard drives and thumb-drives.

I had to purchase a USB 3.0 extension cable to use the MB 3.0 ports on the back.

Beside the issues with the case usb 3.0 port, I really like the case.

Dropping 1 Egg from previous review.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case, minor flaws

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

Pros: In my time of experience with this case, I have concluded the following.

The panels are solid, they have flex, but they are in NO WAY flimsy
Great rubberized standoffs for PSU
Great standoffs for the case itself
I really like the Mid-bay section of the case with the pop out hard drive case.

Overall it's a solid case, with a nice texture, with tons of features.

Cons: Had some trouble getting in one of the cards in the PCI slot, the slot was a little misaligned on the case.

None other than that ^^

Other Thoughts: Solid case, don't let the price throw you off. Sure, it may feel cheaper than thicker gauge steel, but it is still solid for your money. Got it for $30.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case for the price

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

Pros: Has a lot of nice features for a "budget" case!
Way more room for cable management than other cases in this price range.
Doesn't have rubber inserts for the cable pass through, but all of the edges are rolled preventing cable damage.
Lots of options for an air cooled rig!

Cons: Has the pop out style PCI slots.
Doesn't have a slot for a SSD, but a simple mod with a drill will allow you to screw on the lowest deck of the center cage.

Other Thoughts: Outstanding case for a budget build. I liked it so much. I'm going to upgrade to the Ostrog GT for my "not so budget" build.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case!

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

Pros: This case will fit any Motherboard you may have. (ATX,Mid-ATX,Mini-ATX) It also allowed enough space to fit a large Graphics Card (R9 290X) into it without having to take out any HDD Bays. Great case!

Cons: N/A

3 out of 5 eggsA few things not mentioned, but solid, cheap case.

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

Pros: Looks good, components intstall easily, good build quality.

Cons: Cable management is difficult. The rear panel barely fits an ATX cable.

No 2.5 inch drive slots.

The fan it comes with is molex only.

installing a DVD drive blocks one of the top fan slots.

Other Thoughts: It's well ventilated, and cheap. If you want that, get this case. There are more refined options, but this'll do for most. JUST MAKE SURE YOU LOOK AT ITS FEATURES BEFORE BUYING.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Budget Case

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

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing
Decent airflow/plenty of fan mounts
More than enough 5 and a quarter inch bays
OK cable management options
Removable hard drive cage
Nice looking IO panel
Low Price

Cons: Cable management could be a little easier

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best budget case you can get. It's really affordable, yet very high quality. It's hard not to recommend this to people building budget computers.
