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.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case a few shortcomings

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

Pros: -Wide to hide cables on side panel
-Big enough to fit a 750W PSU with ease
-Fits the Hyper 212 Evo without issue
-Black paint looks good
-Crystal clear side panel (some people say it looks smoked not mine)
-Plenty of fan mounting points
-Preinstalled MB stand offs
-Not to tall
-Lightweight
-Fan filter on PSU

Cons: -Metal is a little flimsy (will hold up)
-If anything vibrates in the case the clear side panel makes noise
-With an optical drive only one top fan fits
-Only one fan in the front
-No fan filters

Other Thoughts: Good case for the price. Keeps everything cool and not noisy.

I had an issue the first time I plugged in a headphone in the front panel audio in. Windows 8.1 crashed and reset. No issues now.

My case options were the Cougar Solution, Corsair Carbide 200R, and the Cooler Master N400. I really like the Carbide case but it was near double the price of this one.

I highly recommend this case to the budget conscious. You will not be let down.

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA500wPSU

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

Pros: I have had this PSU since 9/12/13. It has worked flawlessly. I have just sold the Rig it was in and will now try there new hydron case and 500w PSU in my new build. EVGA is a great company hands down and i always sit in the garage all day waiting for the package.

Cons: People giving it less than 5 Eggs!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Decent!

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

Pros: Has all the hard drive storage that you could possibly want or even desire. The drive locking nuts work well, nice and smoothly. The clear window on it is large and appealing. It's not terribly heavy, which was a concern of mine since the client is handicapped, but she easily got it out of the box when it arrived, that was great! The paint job was well done, but not perfect. I would have preferred more of a gloss to it, but considering the price it wasn't bad. All of the front panel connectors went on the board as they should, no hassles at all. The power keys and reset button work as they should. I have heard that they tend to get stuck, but that didn't happen with this case thankfully. It's overall a very solidly well made case.

Cons: The acrylic window is not crystal clear, it's a little "smokey". That wasn't a deal breaker though, and with the LED lights i installed it actually enhanced it. I also thought that cut outs for 2 fans on the "window" is overkill. I only have 2 complaints about this case really. The screw nuts in the case don't all line up with the mobo, which led me to leave the bottom 2 screws out. That was not a great thing to discover. The other complaint i have is the metal is a little thin, so you have to take some care when ur working not to put the panel doors in a place where they could be accidentally bent.

Other Thoughts: This case, despite a few minor flaws was possibly the best case i ever worked with and the client was very happy with it. Big 5 stars!
