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.

3 out of 5 eggsIncredible Case, questionable rebate policy

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

Pros: The case itself is amazing. Spacious, sexy, easy to work with and take apart/put back together. The fans that come included do a great job of circulating air and keeping everything contained with nice and cool.

The LED lights on the front fans don't do much other than illuminate, no real spirally spinny visuals or anything hypnotic. But they are pretty and add a few awesome points, especially since I can easily turn them off if I don't want to light the room in blue.

The detachable HD cage was easy to get out and the 2.5" cage easy to put in its place.

Cons: Enermax seems to have employees severely lacking in beta carotene, as they can't read not one, but two perfectly clear documents that were mailed to them for the rebate on this case. I like to think this is only because of a bad vision insurance plan and not because they're unable to see a huge circle and arrow I made on the pages to clearly show where it appears in the list of items ordered.

Other Thoughts: The case is great, no doubt. Even without the rebate it's worth the price. However, when factoring in overall price of my purchases and trying to fit a budget, I always account for rebates assuming I'll get them. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem in this case and hope to see a resolution to this as soon as possible.

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: Big and roomy. Easy to do a clean build. Nice window on left and lots of space on the right. High quality feel and assembly. Looks great lit up. Cooling is excellent, I added an extra fan on top. Dual usb3 and dual usb2 on top with nice parts tray. Hard drive cage pops right out if needed. Highly recommended.

Cons: None for the price

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Here's a case with an unbelievable amount of space. Nice touch having all controls on the top of the of the unit. This was a completely new build and every component fit perfectly with no glitches. Blue leds around front fans were another nice touch. Case has three fans, which provided more than enough cooling for my build. Cpu temps were very steady

Cons: none at this point

Other Thoughts: A well designed case that virtually left nothing out. Room for adding more drives in the future. Could grow with you.

3 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Cheep fans work and are quiet. the SSD 2 bay holder is a nice add on

Cons: One of the slot plates and screw fell out of the case. Upon investigation the screw hole was oversize the metal was rolled over. Drives wiggle loose fitting. watch out pushing out 5 inch bay the clip snaped when I was trying to remove the bay cover and tore the skin off my finger. Very difficult to remove. The 5inch bay drive clip was off and jammed against the case access panel jamming it closed. Had to remove opposite panel and pound it free.

5 out of 5 eggsPlenty of Room, Except for Liquid Cooler

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

Pros: This case was very easy to use. I was able to snap on the connectors onto my 6 hard drives and slide them in with ease. The back/right side panel is out-dented leaving plenty of room for the cables behind the motherboard. The blue fans on the front are a nice touch. I also got some Silverstone Tek blue LED strips to place in the case so it all the components light up nice through the window.

The front filter collects a lot of dust, probably because I have my case on the floor. It has to be cleaned off about once a month, but it's nice to know that much less dust is collecting on the inner components.

Cons: My only complaint is I wasn't able to fit in the popular Cosair h100i liquid cooler, which is 52mm thick. I'm using the ASUS M5A99FX motherboard, and the radiator bumps into the RAM connectors (not the RAM itself) so it just barely runs into them. However, I was able to move the liquid cooler over away from the motherboard and screw it in through hexagonal grate. I was only able to use 4 out of the 8 screws, but I feel like it's secure, has still has enough exhaust room. So looking down at the top of case, I can see that the radiator off centered. But since everything is black, I only notice it when I'm showing someone the radiator.

I still gave it 5 eggs because the case didn't advertise whether or not it had room. I just went off what another reviewer said. I guess that's the downside to putting in a liquid cooler in a mid-tower case.

Other Thoughts: I already have a front panel USB 3.0/SD UHS-I reader for the front of my case, so I took apart the top assembly and removed the two USB 3.0 ports since they couldn't connect to my motherboard. That wasn't the easiest thing to do in the case, but neither was it that difficult. Just had to figure out how it was snapped and scr*wed in (Sorry Newegg, I know some people abuse the word "scr*wed but I'm not one of them! Just let me post this review already.)
