3 out of 5 eggsNice value but could be better

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Solidly built. Lots of fans and space for more fans. The front buttons and jacks are convenient. Can't beat the price for what you get.

Cons: My complaint is with mounting a radiator and there were two issues:

1: The mounting holes do not line up with my 280 mm radiator. Since the holes on the radiator do not go through, you cannot use the radiator as a stencil and have to measure/guess where the new holes should go.

2: There is not enough space between the motherboard and the top to mount both a radiator and fans. I purchased an H110 to take advantage of the 280 mm spacing and wound up having to put the fans outside of the case. While this isn't the end of the world, it doesn't exactly look good and it would be wise to purchase fan guards.

Not really a con since I knew what I was buying but it would be nice if there were a vent and mounting holes for a side fan. Anyone who has used an SLI or Crossfire setup with internally-vented cooling knows those cards need extra air directly on them.

Other Thoughts: It's a great value but not a 5 Egg product for people who will add better cooling. Fix the radiator spacing & mounting holes and add a spot for a side fan it gets 5 eggs.

If you're using top exhaust fans, buy a decent bottom fan to maintain positive pressure and keep the dust out. Moving the 2.5" cage is a breeze and the bottom filter is already there.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Quiet case fans, large enough for long video cards, lots of room for 120 and 140 mm exhaust fans, keeps temps very cool (for one video card), upper drive cage removable, great cable management.

Cons: I don't need the lower drive cage for my build but it is not removable. That lower cage obstructs air flow to the lower pci-e slots and will hurt in dual and especially triple video card setups.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case and a removable lower drive cage away from being perfect for my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome case

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is like the title says, awesome. seems to be built on the sturdy side. lots of room in the back for cable management. like that you can turn the front led fans on and off. Also came with plenty of cable ties.

Cons: The top honey comb part seems kinda flimsy. the dust cover on the front was rubbing on the fan and making a noise (easy fix).

Other Thoughts: The fact that I had gone with the egg saver shipping which was projected at 4 to 7 days but got it in 3 was nice.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: stays cool and quiet, fits a lot of big cables in the back, easy to work in (elbow room) nice solid construction and all the metal edges are rounded off so you dont cut yourself or your cables. i like the ease of removing and installing the HDD and disc drive using the rails. the lights look great on the front intake fans. usb 3.0 funcionality is great and i like the price.

Cons: a little tight for putting in radiators when water cooling but you can make it work (i did), the side window is just a little bit tinted so its a little harder so see internal components, but thats nothing some l.e.d's cant fix.

Other Thoughts: never heard of this company. blew me away. it looks really b.a. in person (the internet pics make it look cheap) would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap case with space and usb 3.0

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is great. It offers a lot of internal space for devices, hdds, and fans

Cons: The only negative is if you put the computer in sleep an led light flashing nonstop and there's no way to get rid of it without disconnecting the front power led. One other thing is the distance between the bottom of the case if you put hdds down there is far to reach with a single sata power cable. I tend to link dvd drive with a ssd and a hdd on 1 sata power cable.

5 out of 5 eggsENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is awesome, I'm gonna get the red one for the wife!

Plenty of room for cable management! plenty of cooling options

I have 6 case fans in mine running off a fan controller ( serenity mix 2) you can very easily modify this case. I took out the removable 3.5 hdd and drilled out the rivets on the other 3.5 hdd and mounted the ssd drive in its place, all but 2 of the ssd holes lined up where the rivets were for the 3.5. I just drilled out the other 2 holes. now my ssd cage is in perfect shot to be cooled by the front fans!!!!!

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Big, spacious, everything worked, nothing arrived broken, shipped in 2 days using the free shipping!
Fits my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO no sweat.

Cons: No rubber grommets. Cables on the front fans are kinda short

Other Thoughts: I really would have liked to see rubber grommets on the inside of this case, as well as longer cables on the fans, but all-in-all, it's a solid case for the price point.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case!

This review is from: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Super spacious - Versatile - Overall a great case

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: The only thing to be aware of is the fact that the 2 USB 3.0 connectors on front have a 20-pin connector which the majority of motherboards are currently lacking. You will need to purchase an expansion card, or a motherboard that has the 20-pin connection for USB 3.0
