5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Satisfied

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

Pros: I found it very easy to install all the components. All the cabling can run behind the motherboard to where it needs to connect so the top of the board is wide open. It leaves everything visible and more importantly, open to airflow. The two large fans in the front have not made any noise that I can notice. The lights on the fans can also be turned off with a button next to the power button.

The drive bays are easy to access. The front of the case comes off easy to allow access to the 5 1/4 bays. Just slide the drive in and lock it in, no screws. 4 of the 3 1/2 drives slide out for easy install or to make room for a long video card. There is also a bay for two 2 1/2 drives that can be moved. My case came with it mounted right behind the power supply on bottom. I moved it to the removable drive bay section. Even pointed the drive with the cables in the back so I don't have to see them when I look inside.

Best case I have built with.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The case is a little wider than most mid-towers. I like this but if the case needs to fit into a tight space, measure it out first.

4 out of 5 eggsAdvertised Dimensions are Incorrect

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

Pros: Nice case, cable management was easy, fans are really quiet.

Cons: The specs claim the height is 19.09 inches tall. Even if you remove the "feet" and screws from the bottom of the case it comes in at over 19 5/8" tall. Realistically if you aren't using the power switch and top side usb connections you will still need well over 20" of clearance. This was extremely annoying for me as the space it was being put in only has 19 1/2 inches of clearance at the entry and I selected this case explicitly because of the dimensions in the specs. I half blame Newegg for not having a search feature that allows you to specify external dimensions.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that there is a cable management plate which you may need to remove to get the power supply in (if it is a longer power supply) or to get to the bottom rows of a modular power supply (an issue I had).

5 out of 5 eggsVery easy beginner case!

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

Pros: Lots of space. Easy to use! Cheaper than expected ($55 after rebate for me)

-Side panels come off and go on very easily
-Cable management is easy in this case. There is a lot of space in the back to tuck away cables, the tradeoff being you need more space on your desk/floor for the case.
-Comes with 2 front intake LED fans and 1 rear exhaust non-LED fan. The LED can be turned on/off with a button on the front panel.
-Space above motherboard for thick radiators or 20cm fans.
-Removable drive cage in the front, but only the middle one. The bottom one doesn't go anywhere so no 240mm radiators there.
-lots of space for tower coolers. Can fit Enermax ETS-T40 with plenty of clearance.
- comes with tons zip tie locations and tons of zip ties. I used the extra velcro straps to hide the front panel connector cables with their shiny colors and such.

Cons: -HD Audio connector is too short! I connected it to the motherboard but just barely. had to reorganize my cables to pull this dud through behind the motherboard. gave me a heartattack!
-All the case fans are 3 pin, so they are full speed all the time. Mostly not a problem as my cpu fan cover their noise, but the front 2 fans create a buffeting noise that can be heard if you have the front facing you. From the side you cant hear it.
- the SSD cage can be moved but only to on top of the drive cage in perpendicular direction so the wires would stick out into the case. I solved this by just screwing the SSD above the harddrive on 1 side and putting tension on the power and sata cables to hold the SSD up. Shouldn't be a problem; no moving parts.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend. I wouldn't but another one, because this one has so much space to upgrade, I wouldn't need to!

5 out of 5 eggsColor-customizable

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

Pros: It's pretty wide, and a lot of the stuff can be moved around. The blue mesh in the front can also be easily removed and painted a different color (it's metal). I changed the color scheme to black and green, and all I had to do was paint that one part and put in different colored fans.

Cons: Could have had a few different kinds of screws, but it's no biggie.

Other Thoughts: This is the type of case that will survive a few builds, simply because I can re-color and re-optimize it.

4 out of 5 eggsSturdy, Roomy, Glowy

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

Pros: When I got this case I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality. Not ever owning a Enermax product before I didn't know what to expect. Solid feeling case with plenty of room for cable management. The blue LED fans are a nice cool color of blue that contrasts my liquid cooler with a red LED.

Cons: The bottom HDD cage, in my opinion, should be removable. The middle HDD cage slides out with ease and allows for the SSD to mounted on top of the bottom HDD cage. Problem is it mounts in such as way that your cables are then in view of the side window which can be an eyesore for some. I physically removed the bottom HDD cage myself. It took some time but it is doable with the right tools. I then modified the holes to allow the SSD cage to be mounted there. The bottom HDD cage also seems to seriously hinder the front bottom fan airflow as well.

Other Thoughts: Tight fit for a ATX mobo with a 240 liquid cooler. I tried to mount the rad to the top of the case but the CPU power was in the way and it caused the mounting of the rad to be offset and made the case seem cramped. The removal of the bottom HDD cage allowed me to mount the rad on the front air intakes. I relocated the 2 front fans to the top. Coming from a NZXT S340 to this my CPU temps dropped 10* on load.
