5 out of 5 eggsAwesome, roomy case

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

Pros: Front panel buttons and ports work nice, four front USB's are a plus. LED fan light control. Tons of space inside and plenty of room for fans.

Cons: Front fans tend to gather some dust, but a quick wipe down on the front takes care of it.

Other Thoughts: This case is amazing, especially for the price.

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: This is a great case that offered more than I needed. It was effortless to route the wires and keep it neat. I need USB on the front panel and the wiring had no length issues. All the hardware I needed was supplied. I didn't have any issues with the metal being to thin or flimsy.
AMD R9 380 just fit! should have plenty of airflow.

Cons: After years of following the directions and dotting my i and crossing the t, my rebate was rejected. My first rebate REJECTION....all that time and effort wasted. I was offered a chance to resubmit. If you send in the original bar code label how can you resubmit?

Other Thoughts: ASUS H97 PRO4 MSI R9 380 PC power and cooling 750watt

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case but Caution!!

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

Pros: -The case comes with 2x 140mm fans and 1x 120mm fan
-it's spacious. I fit a 970 without even removing second HDD cage
-Lots of fan support
-Fairly high end case for the price

Overall very pleased with the purchase thanks to newegg customer support

Cons: So while I do think this case is a great buy, it has some cons.

Firstly, the newegg page says that it supports a 280mm rad. to be completely accurate, the case FITS a 280 mm rad. You can most definitely screw in a 280mm rad. However, you will not be able to put a disc drive in the top slot, and you will have to mount the case fans outside of the case. I complained to the customer support and they gave me a $10 discount due to the fact I had to mod my case (I just took out some of the mesh) to get the fan headers to go inside the case.

2.) My second hard drive cage arrived broken and is harder to get out than I would like but it works more or less so that's okay.

3.) I don't know if this is related to the case or not but I installed the 120 mm fan in a fan header and the thing exploded and left this awful smell in my apartment. Thankfully it didn't damage anything at all (not even the fan itself) except now one of my fan headers doesn't work.

-It's a large mid tower case. Both taller and wider than I expected

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you are looking for a small-ish case that supports a 280 mm rad, has a nice case window, and you're willing to do a little bit of work on it to fit a 280mm radiator then this is the case for you. I just took off some mesh on the top, got some fan grilles for $5, and installed my disc drive on the bottom slot. While at first I was extremely upset, I think the exterior mounted fans looks pretty cool and it kind of distracts from the bump they have in the top front of the case for the front io

1 out of 5 eggsRuined my motherboard

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

Pros: Nice case but could be better.

Cons: Needs more work with dust filters.

Front usb 3 plug is too big to fit into the socket. it will go in, but when I tried to unplug, it pulled the socket off the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: It ruined my asus z97 motherboard.

worked great for a week.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware the front USB 3 cable

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

Pros: Overall it's a pretty good case with a few drawbacks.
Quiet fans.
Lots of room.

Cons: The front USB 3.0 cable was hard to plug into the header on my asus z97 motherboard. I unplugged it a week later to do the cable management and it would not come out. I ended up pulling the socket off the motherboard. There was hardly any solder on the back to begin with. The plug itself is a bit oversized and doesn't fit well. Also the pci express slot cover are very cheap.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a great case just watch out for the front usb 3 cable. I feel that asus and enermax are both responsible for the damage to my motherboard that's now a doorstop.
Newegg told me they would not take it back.

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: The case is nice and compact but has plenty of room for cable management and long graphics cards. Looks great and the two front fans deliver plenty of airflow to the hard drives.

Cons: The side panel feels a bit cheap and is prone to scratches.

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: Great case for price, front fans are quiet. the tinted case window hides cables but the cable management at the back or the case hides the majority of cables.

Cons: "dust filters" arent really dust filters. Rear fan could be better quality.
ths usb 3.0 cable is a bit short on my motherboard (gigabyte 990fx ud3) it reaches it but puts strain on it. could potentially wear away and break.

Other Thoughts: not sure if a con or pro, but dust collects on the front part of the case near the fans. (good as its keeping it out?)

4 out of 5 eggsNice Full Sized budget case

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

Pros: Lots of room
All black interior
2 removable drive cages
Windowed
Good cable management
Good front io
Included fans aren't that bad
PSU filter
Thumb screws
Led toggle button

Cons: Front 3.5 jacks are too tight to fit audio jack
SSD cage is too small
Window is tinted too much
The front blue bit is a tad ugly
Some sharp bits of metal at the bottom
No fan filters so the case gets dusty quickly

Other Thoughts: This case is a nice case if you can get it on sale. If you get it for $50 like I did then it is well worth it. You will have plenty of room for expansions and it wont break the bank.

I would recommend this case for a $500-$650 budget if you are want to expand.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

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

Pros: this is about my 20th build. This case is outstanding.
Well engineered and solid construction.

Cons: Not really a con but rather more of a suggestion.
I had to install the fans for my liquid cooling on the top of the case. The case is designed to accommodate this with one exception.
I had to cut a hole in the top in order to route the fan cables.

Other Thoughts: the service from Enermax is world class.
the front headphone jack broke the day I completed installation.
I phoned Enermax and expected a long hold and a typical run around. To my surprise, I got right through and was immediately transferred to the correct person to handle the problem.
He sent me a replacement part (overnight).
Enermax...........you have my vote as case manufacturer of the year. And you have gained a very loyal customer who will encourage others to use your products.
