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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

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

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 ATX 12V (Optional) Power Supply

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.
