4 out of 5 eggsDecent case at a decent price

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

Pros: Decent amount of room for 2 HDDs, 1 SSD, 1 DVD drive, a card reader and fan monitor panel. Looks good.

Cons: Bigger than I thought it would be--takes up a lot of desk space. Wish external USB/Audio ports were on front instead of top.

Other Thoughts: Despite choosing basic shipping I received in 2 days! Newegg has been great as far as getting things quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

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

Pros: I got this baby on sale for 32 bucks so it was a super deal for me. The case is huge I put a asrock 970 extreme3.0 mobo and zalman 135mm cpu cooler and there is still room for a bigger cooler but if you were to go bigger than that it would most likely look silly to be honest. The plastic side panel is a good size and provides a nice touch to the look of the case. If you were building a new rig I would recommend this case.

Cons: I got the case and the see through side panel was scratched at the top. BUT they replaced it for free and It was extremely pain less. The scratch wasn't even that bad but I could see it so I wanted to see if they would replace it and they did.

Other Thoughts: Ahhhh....I bought 2 120 fans to go with the case to increase air flow I would also advice others to do so. my temps now after running for several hours (well like 6 hrs) are 30 Celsius on motherboard and 31 cpu thanks to zalman. and they don't even go up that much when playing games a lot.

4 out of 5 eggsNice budget case

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

Pros: Nice look
Lots of room.
Well ventilated
Comes with a fan

Cons: Thin metal (it is a budget case though so I expected this)
Some of the back corners were bent slightly when I received it. I bent them back but this was the only way the one screw would connect in the back so had to bend it back. This is unnoticeable once built though.

Other Thoughts: I own an Ostrog GT for my gaming build which I like very much so I purchased this case for a budget gaming build for my daughter. Over all I like the case. I got it on sale and I would buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for beginners

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

Pros: This case is great for beginners I used this for my first pc build and I couldn't ask for more! tons of fan mounts just get some led blue fans for the windows and your case will look like it is one of those crazy gaming ones.

Cons: I just had a little problem with cable management but that could be a beginners mistake.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the $$$

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

Pros: Solid construction. Plenty of ventilation. Quiet as the grave. Plenty of room for everything. Slots allow me to feed cables out of the way for even more air flow. Side window is large and clean.

Cons: The only drawbacks are: the little locks that are supposed to secure your drives in place. On a couple of my drives I could not get them to line up with the drive. The holes were off. Plus with room for 17 fans (LOL) they could have included more than 1, but that's just being picky I guess.

Other Thoughts: Finally replaced my 5-yr old Coolermaster 5 case, and I'm very happy with my choice. build was very quick and easy. Would buy this case again. Would be nice to have the grille backlit. But that's just a perk. Still a great case!!!

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case!

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

Pros: Very sturdy case that is mostly metal and not so much plastic like some other cheap cases I saw.
The case has great cooling and never gets hot inside.

Cons: Took a while to figure out where to put my ssd because in the instructions it only showed how to do the 3.5" drive.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Service, Poor product

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

Pros: Nice Acrylic side panel, sturdy construction. The right color and the right price. Easy cable management, as with most midATX cases.

Cons: Side panel came in damaged, requested a new one through Enermax, received another damaged panel(A chip in the same location)
Mobo mounting screws were misaligned, and one was completely unusable.
Top and bottom 5.25in drive bays misaligned, only could use center 2 for dvd reader.

Other Thoughts: Great online customer support from enermax, but receiving two damaged products in a row I assume this might affect more consumers than myself.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood to go

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

Pros: This case is mostly holes. In the world of high-powered
computers that is a good thing. You can easily cool any
system by adding fans and the airflow will take care of itself....no hot air will be trapped inside this case.
This is a well-built case and has room for lots of goodies inside. The four USB ports on the top work great for me since I have the systems sitting below the desk. On the desktop you might have to stand up to plug in a thumb drive but that is not a great big problem.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind.

Other Thoughts: This is the fourth one of these I have purchased. Three of them I bought at F_y's and I paid more. Newegg beat their price. Then, with the free shipping and rebate I saved even more. I am very pleased. Money saved and I didn't have to leave the house.
